Alberta Kennel Club Show

It was a family affair at the AKC show in Calgary. I took Lupine and Huxley to compete in Rally Obedience. Lupine's daughters, Willow, Kona and Teva were all competing in conformation. I was also showing "Dunya", Bertschire Honeymoon Magic, a littersister to Tinbie's upcoming date, "Flame".

On Friday Dunya was Best of Breed for 2 points. On Saturday, Dunya again won the points and Kona was Reserve and Best Puppy in Breed. On Sunday Teva was Reserve.

In Rally on Saturday, Huxley finished his RN title, winning 4th in class. Lupine placed 2nd in the Rally Advanced class, with a perfect score of 100 (but a slightly slower time than the winner).

On Sunday I moved Huxley up to Advanced, but wasn't sure if he could do all of the exercises. Well he surprised me by doing a great job and winning the class! Lupine also qualified and finished her RA title.

The best part of the weekend was getting to know Willow, Kona and Teva better and spending time with them and their owners. All three of them showed really well.

Dunya (Bertschire Honeymoon Magic) visited us on her way to the Calgary show. Dunya lives in Idaho.
