CSSA National 2012

We had the pleasure of attending our CSSA National 2012 in Ancaster, Ontario this past week and we were very pleased with the placement of our dogs.

The first to be shown was our Shelamo A Moment of Tyme in the Junior Puppy Class.  This was her 1st show at just over 6 mths of age and was awarded 2nd place in a competitive class.  This was a special win, a special moment, as I'm sure her dam Ch Shelamo Tyme Descends whom we had to say good-bye to in January was looking down.

We had so many ring side comments on this girl, I thank you.

Then it was our Shelamo She's Got Moxi's turn in the Open Black class where Kim Wendling stepped in for me. Here are some candid photos I was able to take.
"Moxi" in the line up - Hi there judge, what ya got?!
Coming at ya ...
is that chicken for me?!  I'm baiting Kim!
"Moxi" wins her class!
 And not least in Specials our Ch Shelamo Riding The Wind made the 1st cut in the bitches.  She's also a Ch Shelamo Tyme Descends daughter.

At the very end of the National, there are various Parades, one being the Veterans which I do believe there needs to be tissue boxes put out around the ring.  I had the honour of show casing Ch Shelamo's Sure Fire CGN, CD, RE for owner Judy Flanigan.  "Amber's" brother BPIS Am/Cdn Ch Shelamo's Prospector was also to be exhibited, however we didn't have enough room to bring him with us.  Thanks to Evelyn Susin for taking this lovely shot of the two of us.  Judy you should be so proud of the accomplishments you put on the end of her name especially her #22 sheltie 2011 Rally ranking with her at 11.5 yrs of age.
There was one other sheltie there - it did forget to read our standard tho:).  Linda James & her husband of Ravenscourt sheltie did an awesome job of this sheltie topiary that was front and center at the show.  It went up for auction which raised a lot of money for the National, I'm just not sure what size of crate it needed to get home!  Just might have to invite Linda & her husband here for a week to make one for us:)

Great week, enjoyed seeing some very lovely dogs, (believe I found a great mate for "Moxi") friends in shelties that come from afar that we only see every few years, and a congrats to the host club for putting on a well run event.

Glad you and Mike enjoyed this year's National with your dogs (bitches). Many thanks for taking Amber in the ring in the Veterans Parade.
