Last show of the year on the West Coast and we had a blast. The youngsters got to strut their stuff in the show ring. Jack was BOW both days he showed and came home with four more points. His sister Sari was WB/BOS for 2 points, and the 'baby' Aleesha got on the 'board' for her first breed point going WB on the one day she showed. We had such fun! And everyone tried hard and looked like 'real' show dogs!! Hate to be greedy but we took ALL the available points from the classes the three days we showed! Zirkcreek ROCKS!!!!
Zirkcreek Chasing Pirates CKC Pointed
Zirkcreek C Krit Heart CKC Pointed
Zirkcreek CuWeet Dreams CKC Pointed
We had a super successful Labour Day weekend trip to the Skaha shows in Summerland, BC. Two of our up and comers kicked off their show careers winning points toward their CKC Champion titles.
Jack (Zirkcreek Chasing Pirates) went WD on the Friday for his first point, and then on Saturday he was awarded both WD and BOW for another two points! Good boy Jack!
Jack's sister Sari also had a great time at the Skaha shows. On Monday Sari (Zirkcreek CuWeet Dreams) was awarded WB, BOW and Best Opposite for her first two CKC CH points. I was super proud of both of them, all points were won from the Bred By Exhibitor class with both of them!
Emmy Lou New AKC Champion
It is with GREAT pride and pleasure I get to announce my new AKC CH Emmy Lou. EL finished this past weekend at the Mount Rainier Working Dog Specialty in Enumclaw, Wa. She won a four point major under Judge Alberto Berrios, who gave EL her 2nd major earlier this year at the Rose City shows in Portland, Oregon. Judge Berrios found EL again to award her 3rd major (4 points) at the Working Dog Specialty this past weekend in Enumclaw. I am over the moon. EL was breeder/owner handled ALL THE WAY to both her CKC GCH and her AKC CH. It was a lovely way to finish, as EL's momma DJ also won a 4 point major from the Bred By class at the same show 4 years ago.
Ali had a wonderful time at the Northwest Cluster in Lynden Wa. She won her second MAJOR, going Best of Winners, Best Opposite from the Bred By Exhibitor class which was a total thrill for me as her breeder! Ali was also awarded Best of Breed Owner/Handled. And we were also awarded a Group 4th in the Working Group, Owner/Handled. Both these wonderful wins were awarded by long time breeder judge Sharon Marples. I am over the moon delighted and honoured to have been awarded these fantastic wins!
Ali had a fantastic weekend at the annual Dumbbell Obedience club's obedience trial. Two great runs, two High in Class (earning a score of 198 for her 1st run on Saturday!) and she came home with a brand new CD!! Ali was also the HIGH SCORE WORKING DOG both days and won a total of $50.00 in prize money!!!!! So very proud of Ali bean!!
