New Champion, another major, puppy group placing and its still not over!

I decided to come home this afternoon to celebrate my only nephew/Godson's 1st birthday with him and the family. This is giving me the opportunity to blog about the weekend so far. Dawn has had a great weekend so far getting a 4 point major on her Music that is owned and shown by Joyce and a 3 point major on her girl Peace! More info for them is on her blog. The Mann's got a three point major on their dog today as well.

The big news however is that I now have a champion! My first champion! For those not on facebook or in my texting column, it was my Zoe aka Bendi Ebonwald Smthing 2 Prove! Zoe got the cross over 4 point major yesterday to complete her AKC CH title with two 4 point majors and a total of 16 points! I'm really thrilled to have her finished after many RWB and looking for those ellusive majors that almost seem like urban legends up in the North Central part of the country this year.

Zoe's show days are over and we are going to concentrate on her agilitly training now which she REALLY enjoys.

In other news Justice aka Merrymoon Ebonwald Retribution was given the Best Puppy award and then went on to get a Puppy Group 3 in some really deep quality at the North Star Herding Group Club Specialty! He made his daddy proud.....he is SO happy out in the ring....:) This is Justice's fourth Puppy Group placing out of four times in the puppy group ring! Exciting!!

Today justice was RWD to a 3 point major and looked really good out there. I think he just needs to grow up, fill out and stuff before judges may take him seriously. I guess we'll see what tomorrow brings :)

Also today Mitcham the Briard aka Reine Dior Diving for Gold earned this THIRD 3 point major! That now puts him at 11 points with three majors! WHOOP WHOOP!! He is such a sweetheart and is really fun to show! Now if I can just pay attention to what is going on in the ring I will get INTO the ring at the right time LOL :)

What a great weekend!
