This show was a breeders dream. Our darling "Charm"...2nd generation our breeding from BOTH sides, co-bred with our closest and dearest friend Linda D. Jackson, and a grand daughter of our foundation bitch "Felicity", was entered at her first show. Only NINE MONTHS old. She Charmed her way to the very top. I could not possibly ask for more as she went above and beyond even my most wildest expectations. From the bred by classes she went BEST OF BREED all SIX shows over a Grand CH special. She PLACED IN THE GROUP...FIVE of the six shows. If that was not enough she won the puppy GROUP ONE, FIVE of the six shows.... making her the #1 herding group puppy in the country! She also went PUPPY BEST IN SHOW and to make it all even more exciting she went GROUP ONE!!!! Breeder/Owner, Handled/Trained/Raised...In ONE weekend Charm is a NEW CHAMPION in three straight shows, and along with that is half way to her Grand Championship title!!!!
There are no words...I am silent and still in shock...even weeks later.
Charm is the #1 Border Collie in Canada currently!
Hi! I am Laura K. S. Shaw, I have been involved with dogs for as long as I can remember. I originally started in obedience and after a move to Ontario in 2000 I got hooked on conformation showing. I have had Border Collies since 1998 and they are my heart and soul. They are so comical and loving and I could not ask for better partners! I have made so many friends over the years, all around the globe, a special thanks to all those people that have helped me along the way. This blog is here so that I can share my stories and adventures at shows as well as at home! I breed under the "Bellaclan" prefix and my dogs can be seen all around the world. I am proud of each and every one of them.
