Two New Champions In Two Days

It was a gorgeous weekend for a dog show. Friday it was on the warm side (28C or so) but a lovely breeze that kept it comfortable. Today, the sun was out in the morning, the afternoon saw it overcast with the drizzle of rain holding off till very late in the afternoon.

Yesterday, needing only a judge, we finished our "Ruby" by going Best of Breed! She is now Ch Shelamo That's Amore. This makes champion #2 for her dam Ch Shelamo Sugar Shack from her 1st litter, and lucky #13 for her sire Ch Highledge Irish Cream. Her brother Shelamo Sugar Rush was Reserve Winners Dog.
"Rush" on the left, "Ruby" flaked out after her BOB win and being pulled for consideration in the Group ring.

Then today, with the expert grooming & handling by Pennylynn Woodruff, (Ruffleith Shelties)our BPIS Shelamo's Riding The Sky (just turned 1 this week) went Best of Winners and Best of Opposite Sex for a 5 pt win to finish his Championship. He is owned by Linda Howie.

This boy gives you his undivided attention and just loves to show! He's so much like his grandfather "Rocky".

"Whistler" on the move

I'm going to have to gain experience to aim the camera when the subject is in motion.

Thanks Mary-Anne for all your help yesterday at the show and kennel watching today and to Marylou for all your help today!

5:30 am came quickly this morning, so it's been a very long day, I'm all pooped out .... I will work at posting the results and pictures taken of our 1st Canadian Shetland Sheepdog Assoc Regional Specialty tomorrow.

Congratulations! I didn't realize being a dog breeder was such hard work, but you go, go, go all the time! It has to be a labor of love.

Loved the flaked-out shelties in classic sheltie repose!

Congratulations Ruby and Whistler on their lovely finishing wins! Glad the weekend and Specialty went well for all you hard-working people. Not everyone can win but it sounds like everyone had a good time.
