Monthly Blog - July 2011
July 15, 2011
June and July were exciting months in the dog show world for us. I sent Cuba to the US to get his Grand Championship and he certainly did not disappoint us. He finished the Grand Title in no time at all and along the way took two Group 1's and a Group 4 placing him in the top 25 US dogs in about 2 months of showing. He will be at the US Nationals and we are hoping he does well there.
I also started Julie in the ring, a Kensie/Coby daughter and she did very well on her debut. Her first day she was just a silly puppy not putting 4 feet on the ground and just having fun. The second day she settled down and took winners female for her first points. She will also be coming to the Nationals with me.
Our other bright star this month was Peter Pan (Peter) He showed 3 days in Canada and won Best of Winners every day, and in the US he took took 5 point majors and won winners dog the next two times he was in the ring. Unfortunately his mother was stupid and he was shown in the wrong class so we actually lost 5 of his points but he will make them back up easily. Peter will also be going to the US Nationals.
The Vernon show was great as always. We love that show, and I got to see family which was very nice. Mykensie and Doug came and my sister showed her gorgeous Irish Water Spaniel. Mykensie and my sister had a good time going geo-caching. And Kensie broke in the new trailer by delivering her litter of puppies in the trailer while we were camping.
Cuba had his first breeeding with my girl Izzy and I was just thrilled with the litter. Out of 4 puppies it was really difficult to select the pick of the litter, they were all really nice perfect little puppies. We finally selected two show candidates so now we just need to see how they grown up. I will definetely repeat this breeding.
Kensie and Coby had another gorgeous litter, but unfortunately no girls for show, beautiful boys though :-)
Tessa and Arti also had a very pretty litter of chocolates. 4 pretty much solid chocolates and two white (cream) chocolates.
