Jasper, Peet and Annie are in the win zone lately!

Jasper getting BOB and new Canadian Grand Ch. title.

Peet’s BOW picture in Ridgefield, WA in December.

Jasper’s BOB and Group 4 picture from October 2013 at the Lower Mainland show in Canada.

Peet New Canadian Champion.

Thank you Diane McCormack for this wonderful win, Best Puppy, Group 1 and Best of Winners, Best of Opposite for a  point major for Annie.

Thanks to Ms Tari Parish for this Special win at the Arizona Rhodesian Club’s Regional Specialty – Best Puppy in Sweeps and following Sweeps Annie went on to win Overall Best Bred By and her name will be on their Arizona Rhodesian Ridgeback Challenge Cup and a Reserve to a major. I am sorry to say I didn’t  realize there was a Challenge Cup so we didn’t get a picture.      Another nice win for us was the Generation Class, where I had Grandpa Jack, Mother Pepper and Annie in the ring with help from neighboring crate RR owners and we won that class.      Jack raced around the ring like his mom before him.     He loved it at 10.5 years old.

We skipped the Friday dog show for a day of rest and went into Saturday where once again Annie took Overall Best Bred By and BOW for a 3 point major under judge Mrs. Debbie Petersen at the Arizona Rhodesian Ridgeback Regional Specialty show

Another Best Bred By and a Reserve under judge Loraine Boutwell. Annie and I were not able to compete in the All Breed Best Bred By Group competition because we were in the Breed ring where Annie took BOW for a 3 point major.        Annie now has 3 majors and just needs two single points for her AKC Championship.

On Friday, January 10, 2014, on frozen grass Annie took another BOW and BOS over bitch specials for 2 points under Mrs. Sharon Bartosh Kinney, this Annie’s first show in AZ but the timing for a picture was not to be that day.

Annie takes BOB for a 5 point major!     Annie in blue and Pepper (1st place in Specials) is in yellow.      Annie and an Ibizan Hound tied for BIF and Annie lost in the runoff but she had a great day.     This was a February 2014 trial.

Some Needed Help in the Annie Ring

by Windana on July 21, 2013

Savannah Dominick helped out with Annie’s BOB win by taking Annie in the Puppy 9 – 12 month class.       It is hard to believe but this is Savannah’s first time eversavannah-help in a show ring  and what a good job she did too.

I am pleased to say that my Ginger x Stevie Rey litter are starting to pick up points.        Kassey is in Spokane now and then goes on to Idaho for another two days.        Kassey is showing well but not standing for pictures – I hope that will change soon.


Jack the Hunter

by Windana on May 26, 2013

Jack, Annie, Pepper and Dave went on a walk yesterday afternoon and the hunters found a porcupine.       Pepper ended up with 3 quills that we easily pulled out.         Annie had a bunch in her mouth but Jack was by far the worst.       We took him to the vet for help – It was a $313 day.         While waiting for Jack to come out of sedation we drove to the Skagit Bridge Collapse site – traffic was fine but it sure is a different look to the river these days.    jackquill
