Had another fun weekend... well... day In Gray Summit, MO at Purina Farms. On Saturday, SC Chi Frosty started us off taking WD and BOW for 2 point toward his CH title! Nearly there now! SC Chi CH Mojito was Select Dog. LC Chi Raiden was Res. WD again, and is having a great time in the ring. Treeing Walker CH Josie was BOB and was rotten in Group! Ha! I had shown a Frenchie for a friend and left a bit of cheese in my pocket and Jo was busy trying to figure out what it was, lol. We had fun though, and that's the whole point! CH Trigg the Bostonator was Select Dog for 2 more GCH points. Over halfway now! Unfortunately a winter storm approached and the club made the decision to cancel the show on Sunday. We're glad to hear everyone made it home safe and sound. Thank you so much to the judges, club members, staff, and friends who made it a great show, and Happy 50th Anniversary to the Belle City Kennel Club! A pleasure to visit with everyone as always.
This year at the Indy cluster went well for us. Friday started off with me telling God that if he'd let me win on Prince so he could finish and go home with his mama (who was there and wanted to badly) that I didn't care if I won on anything else all day. ...I wasn't being that literal God! Lol. But Prince is now Champion Halo's Prince of MK's Palace!!! Huge congrats to Valerie Haas Chis and Paulette Bettenga... as well as to his breeder Kristen Blackwell. Thank you for letting me be a part of it and enjoy him for a while. I'm still missing our goofy morning routine. Treeing walker CH Josie was breed as well, but she was the only one. Showed well in group tho! Boston Bam won her class and frenchie Gonzo was 2nd in open... but showed so well.
Sat. I brought out a new longcoat boy, Lily's Thunder in the distance "Raiden" - bred/owned by Tina Ortiz. His first time in the ring and he was amazing! Took reserve to the major at 7 months old. Congrats on breeding a rockstar! SC Chi Frosty was adorable and showed well, but got no love from the judge. I also brought out a new smoothcoat girl- Haas's Life is a Highway "Arizona", bred/owned by Valerie, who I expected to be nervous but came out tail wagging and bait stacking! Good girl Zona! In bostons Bam won her class again, and CH Trigg took Select dog for his 2nd CH Defeat and 2 more GCH points. I'm starting to think I need to slow down on his Grand... I'm going to miss him Gonzo the frenchie was lovely as always and CH Josie was again breed and again great in group.
Sunday was much like Sat. Frosty and Arizona placed better but still no points. Raiden was again adorable. CH Trigg was again Select Dog, for his last CH Defeat and 2 more points. Congrats to his owner Loretta Walls and breeder Anne Trenary! Bam won her class again, Gonzo was so close but no major this weekend. CH josie was breed and went to groups again. Always a pleasure to present her there. Warm thanks to everyone who allowed me to show their dogs, and huge congrats to all the winners! I enjoyed visiting with old friends and meeting new. See you next time and thanks for reading my novel!
