My beautiful bred-by bitch, Mikayla, in best of breed competition.  She had sustained a bad jolt to the throat the night before because of a dog that lunged unexpectedly at her.  So, I could not put on her usual great exhibition.  I was not able to pull on the leash either to encourage her to go faster or to stop her.  She was not at all happy with me making her work her while her throat hurt, either.  Despite this handicap, we were in all 5 cuts down to the end out of the 57 specials in the ring.

Our little Chilly-girl was 3rd in the huge open bitch class of 30.  She also helped her dam win the brood bitch class being one of the get.  We were very proud of Chilly and love her dearly.

Lucky ringside photos of Chilly in a self stack and on the move.  Please notice she is completely suspended doing a true flying trot!

I have had the fun and privilege of fostering "Evan" for his breeder and owners, Nancy Katsarelas and Lynne Bennett.  He was a Winning boy with a capital W.  He had 10 points and 2 majors by the time he was a year old.   At Reno, as the photo above shows, he won the regular 9 -12 month puppy dog class and (not shown) he also was second in his Sweeps class.

Even though it is a little blurry, this ring side photo may help you understand why this puppy has done so well, .  He is true coming and going and uses everything beautifully, effortlessly on the side gait, again suspended in a true flying trot!
