New Titled Dog For Shelamo

Can't wait to find out an answer .... you'll read it at the end ... in the meantime just had to post this ...

This past weekend a Shelamo bred dog obtained his Agility Trial Champion of Canada. This is the 1st one of our breeding to obtain this recognition.

He is none other than .... drum roll please ...... now ...


(DC/Cdn Ch Linden Danbie The Blacksmith NA VCX HTDI x Shelamo's Party Pack ROMC )

(l-r Linda Howie, Gryphon, judge)

Linda Howie tells me that in Canada only a ribbon is given out for this title, however in the US you do a victory lap taking the pole of the last jump and having people sign it. Well Linda broke Canadian tradition, bought her own jump pole, did her victory lap and had everyone sign it.

Maybe the tradition will catch on here now!

Linda has spent hours training Gryphon to get to this prestigious title, he's been a great dog to work with and taught her many things about agility training & competition.

What we don't know yet is whether some of those titles at the end of his name get removed as they go towards his AtCHC.

In her words ...

"He's been waiting for years for me to catch up."

And we can't forget her next star in training is her newest Canadian Best Puppy In Show Ch Shelamo's Riding The Sky, who just happens to be a Shelamo's Party Pack ROMC great grandson.

It's also noteworthy that Gryphon's sire was the 1st Sheltie Duel Champion in the USA, bred and trained by Dr. Sherry Lee, Linden Shelties FLA. Sherry's been a special friend for many years, the best of which she piloted our BPIS Am/Cdn "Rocky" to his American Championship.

I love watching agility trials. That's definitely something I want to get into with my next dog. It's amazing how many shelties are so good at it! Congrats to Linda and Gryphon.

Congratulations Linda and Gryphon! You must have spent much time and probably much money achieving this ultimate agility title. A very special achievement.
