Best Baby Puppy in Breed - Ellie
This was Finlee and Ellie and Chip's debut in the ring.  What a fun, great weekend with the dogs and friends.   Very hectic with 3 dogs showing, but thank you to some wonderful friends for piloting Chip in the ring.  Finlee pick up her first points and Ellie and Chip had fun playing in the baby puppy ring.  

With having the girls to show, Chip left for his new home to be a fantastic companion to a family with two boys.

Best Baby Puppy in Breed - Ellie
After our first weekend, Finlee was a bit unsure about showing this weekend, so t became all about being happy and having a good time in the ring.  Keeping the tail up and shaking the fuzzy bum.

Ellie worked more on keeping 4 on the floor as she had a great time walking on her hind legs and galloping.  Finally on Sunday, she was very good.  I think she was tired after two back to back weekends.

This was a wonderful day for me as a breeder/handler.  Together Ellie and I won Best of Breed from the classes over a special.  We went on to win Best Puppy in Specialty!

So proud of this young girl.

Ellie finished her Canadian Championship this weekend under Lee-Anne Bateman.  The icing on the cake was our Puppy Group Win.  The judge pleasantly told us we were runner up for Best Puppy in Show although there was no award.  Way to go Ellie, she sure gave it a go!

On Sunday we got to play as a special, it was lots of fun.

This was my first weekend showing Ellie as a special.  She is a hoot to show.  We had a great time and picked up some more Grand Champion points along the way.  So close now!

Finlee came out to play this weekend too, going winner bitch all days she was shown.

What a great weekend this was.  Friday with our breed win, Ellie finished her grand championship.  We won 3 out of 4 breed wins and picked up two group twos with matching Best puppy in group wins.  Saturday I was sick, so our performance was not so great.  A huge thank you to Jennifer Raymaakers for showing Ellie on Sunday two her first group placement in tough toy competition.  On Monday, Ellie and I repeated her performance the day before and Cobie and I won Best Baby puppy in Group!

This was the National specialty weekend.  While we did not get any awards at the specialty we had a great showing at the all-breed associated with it.  Our best win of the weekend was on Sunday at the booster where we were Best of Opposite over the top dogs from both Canada and the US with Ellie at 10 months old.  A proud breeder moment to compete with the best from both countries.

It was fun to visit with old friends and meet new ones at the specialty events.
