As always we had a fabulous time at this show. We were joined with our friend Linda Jackson of Vallnery Border Collies and with Debbie and her boy "George" (Action X Vallen son). The three of us and the dogs crammed into a hotel room and giggled ourselves to sleep, after stuffing ourselves with pizza and cotton candy!
The first show under judge Kristen Francis, the special George went BOB for a major towards his Grand CH title. This was followed by my girl "Onion" Riveredge Ain't Gonna Make Ewe Cry, who went WB/BOW/BOS for her first major at her first show in Canada.
The second show George repeated her win and this time "Saphira" went on to win WB/BOW/BOS for a major! Under respected judge Ray Smith.
Third show under highly respected Peter Machen George again repeated his win and Onion repeated her win from the first show picking up another major!
Fourth show under Kim Ramey-Leblanc ONION went WB/BOW/BOB OVER THE SPECIAL for another major!!!
This makes it so that Saphira only needs two singles and Onion only needs four singles to champion. George picked up six points and three majors towards his grand champion title!
We are so pleased with our team!
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.
