A Good Weekend!

We headed to Connecticut for the weekend to show at the Tri-State Specialties. The first day, Cocoa (Ch. Laureate Jivara) won Best in Sweeps under judge Greg Speeks, and also won her class under judge Marjorie Tuff. The following day, she won her sweeps class and was "runner-up" (though no prize was offered for this). She also won her class under judge Sue Christie and was awarded a 5 point major reserve! She showed well, was a great traveller and we were very pleased with the result. Her kennel mate "Stormy" won her class both days, and was pulled for consideration for WB the first day. This was her very first show and we were delighted with how she behaved, and how well she was received.

Cocoa and Paris waiting their turn.
Congratulations to Tom and Nioma Coen for winning Best of Breed both days with Cocoa's grand-sire, Am/Can/Jap Ch. Pop Star SS of Northern Farm, ROM (from the Veterans class). Also on winning WB/BW both days with their beautiful tri puppy, Hillstone Hallelujah.
Meanwhile, back in Canada, Laureate Rachael Ray, owned by Penny Woodruff (Ruffleith Shelties) shown by Kim Wendling earned her Canadian Championship. This was the fifth to finish for our beloved Tira, giving her the ROMC title!!! There are now four consecutive ROMC's in the tail female line; a wonderful family of producers! (ROMC stands for Register of Merit is for a female that has produced five Champions, or a male that has produced ten champions.)
