New Cdn Ch Shelamo Sugar Rush

We have a new Canadian Champion, Ch Shelamo Sugar Rush. He finished with going Best of Winners, along with 3 Best of Opposites at the Kars Dog Show this past weekend. He is out of our girl Multi Group Winner Ch Shelamo Sugar Shack, sired by Ch Highledge Irish Cream. This makes #3 Ch for Rush's dam, the 3rd one we've finished in his litter, and #15 for his sire.

Ch Shelamo Sugar Rush
On Friday, it marked a milestone for me, as it was 22 years ago, (1988) that I witnessed Diane Biggar show a dog called Ch Arhope Bold And Gold (Wolfie) that I fell in love with. That day I followed the breeder, Kerry Proctor home and spent 3 hours watching a bunch of puppies play and came home with my new puppy who was a Wolfie grandson.

He went on to become Arhope Call Me Sibeau CDX. There was a tri boy the same age as Sibeau, but Kerry wouldn't sell this show prospect to me, however late in the fall she was willing to part with him so I could learn the show ropes ... he became the stepping stone into this world of breeding ... Ch Arhope Simply Sinful CDX.

Interestingly enough, the owner of Wolfie, Jan Douglas came knocking a month or so ago looking for a sheltie to add to her home so we placed our girl Ch Shelamo Sands of Time with her. Flicka now has her own side of the bed to sleep on :)

Today (it's Monday), at the Valley Kennel Club in Lombardy, just outside of Smiths Falls, Ontario, Rush was Best of Opposite under breeder judge Guy Jeavons.

Good 4 days of showing so far - just with the heat/humidity would break, even for a day.

Well congratulations! It sounds like you've had a busy few days...but very profitable ones.

I wish the humidity would vanish as well. My glasses fog up in the morning when I'm walking Simba! But wait...I think I feel a coolish breeze coming in through yonder window. I think it's time to venture out for an evening walk.

How many puppies do you have left?

Hooray for Rush! He looked great in the ring. Very regal!

Yes Kerry and her dogs had that effect on people.It was a life changing event for a few of us when we came home with an Arhope dog : )) Shelties can be addictive!

Congratulations to you and Rush on the completion of his Championship! One more littermate to go. Guess you'll have to wait a while for Flirt to get back in shape and grow some coat.
