Rainy May Show Weekend

It was a wet day on Friday at the Ottawa Kennel Club show...it rained on and off all day and there was a cool breeze as well.  It was a good thing Rehannah doesn't mind being wet as she went into the ring and thought nothing of trotting around in the rain.
She loved running in the wet grass...
...and looking for treats!
At only six months and nine days old, she acted like a pro.
She had plenty of ring practice as there were two shows in one day.
Final selection
She ended up taking Best of Breed over Specials both times in the ring and a Group 2nd, Group 4th and a Best Puppy in Group for nine points of the needed 10 for her Championship.
So Saturday we drove up to Thetford Mines and she finished her Canadian Championship at the first show.  The Sunday she won a Group 2nd under breeder-judge Guy Jeavons and Best Puppy in Show under judge Allan Brown.  It was a good thing the show was indoors, as it rained all weekend there as well.  Rehannah may have been OK with it, but I didn't like it so much!
Rehannah became our youngest Champion finishing at 6 months and 10 days of age!  We also got 3 points on Finn, Corbin was shown the Saturday in Ottawa by Diane Biggar and he picked up a 4 point win.  Then we got the great news that "Player" became an American Champion, so is now officially known as Am/Can Ch Laureate Cold Play (owned by Sherrie Sparling, Skyehaven Shelties).
So a great weekend despite the rain!

Rehannah is taking the Sheltie show world by storm. Wow!! At least you had a great excuse to wear those spiffy rain boots, Kim!

Such fun to have a real puppy flyer! She looks like she showed beautifully, and performed like a star, just did everything that was asked of her. What more could anyone want?? :) Congrats again!!

Guess all those times getting wet in the ditch and learning to be a water rat really paid off! She looks gorgeous!
I can't wait to see what Eva's pups do when they go out at 6 months! They are a bunch of stunners as well!
Do you and Pete ever keep any boys? eg will the spectacularly gorgeous Evan stay with you, or Finn and Corbin, or do you prefer to finish them and then send them on?

Congrats! I just love her expression, she looks so happy and interested in the photos. Yay Rehannah!

Thanks everyone! We just love this puppy...she is such a doll. She has such a responsive personality and has been that way since her eyes opened. If I could I'd make them all this way... :-)

When do we get to see some pictures of Corbin? I'm not aware of the nuances of Shelties, however have been involved in several other breeds of dogs, but I have always loved his presence. He appears to exude that hard to find combination of great breed type along with a stallion like bearing in the few pictures I've seen.
