Finally home from the National and what a great time we had! A HUGE THANK YOU to David Rich for going with me and helping with my crew! Made things much more fun and he did his usual beautiful job with the Queen, Miss Riki, in both Veterans Sweeps and the regular Veterans class.
Everybody did really well. Riki was second in Vet. Sweeps and third in the regular Veterans class. Emrys was second in both the Bred-By Sweeps and the regular Bred-By class….and win I am particularly proud of as the first place dog, a gorgeous boy owned and bred by Lana Lochen, went on to Winners Dog and Best of Winners! Morrigan was second in the Bred-By Sweeps. And then we had Rally……..Morrigan got her first leg on her Rally Excellent A (with only four training sessions on the Excellent exercises all done after I entered her! LOL) with a 93, Emrys was first in Rally Advanced A for his second leg with a score of 98. And my sweet Ulyana went back in the ring after almost four years and was first in Excellent B with a 100, second in Advanced B with a 99 and High Combined in Trial!!!!! What an exciting time we had.
And, as if that was not enough, Taloc, Ulyana’s son got his fourth leg on his RAE with Michelle Barker….scores of 93 and 95. Baron and William, two of her other babies were there for Breed. Thank you Kahla Johnson and Juli Wright for bringing them. And Riki’s boy, Leo, was there for Rally also. So good to see my grandchildren!!!!!
Macha getting her Group 1 at the UKC shows in Perry, GA. She was the only working dog to beat the Doberman that won three BISs! Macha is 6 1/2 years old!!! My Central Asian Shepherd friend is showing her in the class….thank you Ania!!!!
Emrys finishing his UKC Grand Championship. On his way, he got two Group 2s, a Group 3 and a Group 4. Sign is wrong…hopefully this is being fixed, but still wanted to post his pic. He is 17 months in these pictures and is from the Aeron-Arharovec litter.
My sweet Ulyana….who was High Combined in Rally Trial at the National with a combined score of 199…..went Best of Breed twice at the Perry UKC shows, got a Group 3 and also earned her URO3 (equivalent to a Rally Excellent title).
