June 2017


June 24 we went to the the Penobscot Valley Kennel Club in Maine with Nathan and Harmony. They both came home Winners! Nathan beat his sister for Best of Winners and Best Bred By. He also got a Best Bred By Exhibitor Group 4. Too bad they changed judges on Sunday to one that we won't show to.


June 8-12 we went to the 5 shows put on by the St Francis Kennel Club in Brome, Quebec. We had hoped to get some points on Harmony and Nathan and to finish Ari as she only needed 2 more points to finish. Show #1 on Thursday she does that and then some!!


Show #1 Ari finished her championship by going Winners Female, Best of Winners and Best of Breed over a champion. The she got a Group 4 to finish with a bang.


Show #2 Ari from the champions class takes Best of Breed again. Nathan goes Best of Winners for 3 points. Then Ari got another Group 4!!


Show #3 Harmony's first show she goes Winners Female, Best of Winners, Best Puppy Best Bred By Exhibitor and Best of Breed over a champion from the classes for 2 points!! Beating Her brother, Nathan, who was Winners Male.


Show #4 Nathan decided it was his turn again. Winners Dog, Best of Winners, Best Puppy, Best Owner Handler, and Best of Breed over champions including mom, Ari for 3 more points!


Show #5 Nathan Winners Dog for his final point. Nathan is now a Canadian champion!! Harmony goes Winners Female, Best of Winners, and Best Puppy in Breed for two points.

Ari and Laura did it again they picked up another 3 points but that's going to be it for now, plans are to breed Ari as her "boyfriend" is headed to the Ukraine.

We hadn't done much showing but our daughter, Laura, decided it was time to get Ari out and on April 30,2016 they did it with a bang. Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for 3 points!! Then a Reserve winners the next day.

2015

We have been very lax in keeping our website updated and I apologize. 2015 was really all about the horse but she's got this year off from showing to have a baby so 2016 will be more dog orientated. Laura was able to finish her beagle Ivy in the US and Canada. we are very proud of her as she is a junior owner handler and finished Ivy in the US with 3 majors with several being BOB.
