Winter has finally arrived, although moderately . After a month of above average temperatures , snow has fallen with the purpose of staying! It has been difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas , until today….December 6th the Feast of St. Nicholaus ! I remember as a child leaving my shoes or boots out by the back door on the 5th of December hoping that they would be filled with goodies come the following morning. This was a tradition we kept as our own children were growing up. Next year we will start again with our grandson ! ( He is too young this year.)

Completed his American championship with 18 points 5/3/3/3 majors plus 2/1/1 points within 9 shows!

Check out his profile for his Canadian wins. When your done with that, take a look at his winning pedigree!

“BELLE” finished her American championship with 15 points, 3 majors under 3 major judges ( 5/4/4 ), 5 judges in total. Our little “bumble bee” picked up a 5 point major at her first show in mid-September 2009. Shown sparingly in October, as Rick and Gary took some time off for a deserved vacation, Belle ” buzzed” her way to her championship in the second week of November 2009. We were delighted that both dogs finished so quickly. Many thanks to handler co-owner Rick Day and to Gary for his coat care at home.
