Brags from the weekend of August 5 2023
Our Club members did very well at the Alberta Kennel Club shows in Calgary this past weekend. Congratulations to all!
Margie – Was the Biggest Winner with her boy Solar
Solar is new Grand Champion and took a Group 4th and a Group 2nd in a very large Working Group
Juneau & Kima (our Mandy puppies from Wisconsin) – Juneau got 7 points, his sister Kima got 5 points at their first Canadian shows and their half sister Never got 3 BOS and 2 Selects – 12 points to her Grand.
Marlon won best juvenile in sweepstakes and WD/BOW at the Alberta Boxer Club Specialty on Saturday, and WD on Monday. He came home with 6 points.
Miley got Best of Winners on Saturday at the GSP group AKC show then Reserve Winners at the Westwind Specialty for GSPs
Bodhi had a great weekend. He took select dog at the boxer specialty. And a 187.5 in obedience for his second leg
Belamma got BPIB on Friday and Reserve WB
NV got 2 Best Puppy in Breed. She may have anywhere from 3 to 5 points. I’m not sure. Fierce got Best of Opposite Sunday, then Best of Breed on Monday. 6 points toward grand champion, I think.
Kaelie took Best of Breed on Saturday in both the open show, and the Toy Dog Specialty.
Paisley earned two legs toward her Rally Intermediate title.
From Alanna June 22 2023
Miley got her Barn Hunt Instinct title on the weekend and we got it on video (it’s attached). She didn’t have to do the tunnel at the beginning but chose to, and I can’t cue her to do it as that’s technically “training in the ring”. Anyways, all she had to do is sniff & indicate on the tube with the gerbil. There were 3 tubes: one empty, one with litter, and one with a gerbil in it.
You can’t touch the dog until the judge acknowledges you’ve completed the run, but you can talk to them & use hand signals. Also, a lot of people use Instinct runs to warm their novice dogs up.
We’re entered in the Cowley Barn Hunt trial in September too if anyone wants to go for a drive & see what it’s like.

Bodhi got 3 points this weekend, and now has 8 total, he took best of winners on Saturday. On Friday he got reserve for both shows.
Kareen & Minnie (Thistlebitt Beachwood Minnie) was only able to make it for a couple trials and conformation shows but did very well. I watched Kareen & Minnie but missed getting pics ☹ In Rally, didn’t want to get too close as Minnie knows me. This was Kareen’s first stab at conformation and had great support from the Border exhibitors at the show. As per Kareen: “Minnie has earned her Rally Novice Title, and one leg towards the Intermediate level. More practise needed for obedience as no success there (yet). In my opinion, was great to get into the Conformation ring for the first time. While we may not have received any points, it was a great learning experience for both Minnie and I”
The rings in Calgary were set up very far apart due to Covid restrictions and I got tired out running from ring to ring watching our members. Enjoyed visiting with Helen who was ring stewarding for her first time. Great job Helen….you were stellar steward from what I hear. Now you are all trained for our shows. 😊
Huge congratulations to all. Looking forward to your successes at our shows in a few weeks.
Lakes District Kennel Club – Burns Lake 2021
Nancy & Skyler ( now known as GCH Nanrich TopFlite Sky’s The Limit) This was Skyler’s first time in the ring for 4 years (she took time off for a litter with us and then one in Wisconsin) She obtained 8 points at a year old and only needed 2 points to finish her Championship so entered in Burns Lake as we were going to be in the area at the time. Not only did I finish her CH but also got her Grand with 8 BOB’s, 5 Group 2nds, 3 Group 1sts and 2 Reserve Best In Shows and 3 Best Owner Handler Best in Shows garnering her # 1 Papillon in Canada #4 Toy Dog. She obtained 361 breed points by the end of the 4 days she was pretty much “done” and so was I. Rain, wind, hot, cold but no smoke or fires there. No plans to continue showing her but was thrilled with the results. Donated all the rosettes and prizes back to the Club to use for their next shows. They need them more than we do….lol
