The first time that handler Lauren McIlwraith took Lacey (Elyan White Lace and Promises) in the ring, the little baddog earned a major. Lacey is a Chase/Daisy daughter. Pam Day and I co-own this little girl and we are very proud of her. Lacey is 16 months old.

Tuli and our friend Kim Raleigh went to Hobbs the first weekend of February. On Sunday Tuli was a rockstar. She was in the 12-18 month class which she won. She went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and . . . wait for it . . . Best of Breed over four Champions to earn her first major. Of course, we have no more shows within shouting distance until May. We will head off to our National Specialty at the Purina Events Center in Missouri the first week of May. It’s a really big sheww — we look forward to seeing all of our friends and dogs we’ve not seen before. Pam Day and Lacey will be there. Chase is entered in the CWCCA’s first triathalon. He will herd, run agility, and compete in conformation.

Lots of people joined in to earn Addie’s Championship. In early November, Kim Raleigh handled Addie in Pueblo for her final Championship point and her first Grand Champion Points. One of Kim’s friends caught this lovely photo of our girl. Many thanks to everyone who participated in making this happen. Addie is litter sister to Andy (MHIT Elyan Andrews Honor Roll BN CDX RAE), owned and trained by Sheri O’Brien and Copper (Elyan The Auburn Tigress HT CD), shared by me with Tricia and Kevin Dooley. Parents are Chase (MHIT GCH/Can CH C-Myste Baledwr Pursuit of Happiness CD RN HXAs OAP OJP VCX ROMs) and Dory (GCH Raglans Just Keep Swimming CGC ROMb). What a happy group of youngsters they are. Addie is with Debbie Yarbrough at Rebel Collies.

This past weekend, our friend Kim Raleigh took Tuli and Addie to Colorado Springs for the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday shows. Unfortunately, Tuli’s hot spots flared up again and she was not shown. However, her aunt Addie (Chase/Dory) carried the flag. Addie was Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite Sex on Friday to earn her final Championship point. On Saturday — her first time shown as a Special — she was Best of Opposite Sex to earn her first Grand Champion Point and a win over another champion. On Sunday, Addie upped her game and was Best of Breed for a Grand Champion Major and another competition win. She was pulled out for the final dogs in the Herding Group. Addie is now CH ELYAN ADELAIDE ECO PT! Addie is Copper’s and Andy’s littermate — what a group of classic over-achievers! I love the Chase kids!

Here is the show photo from Tuli’s debut on May 30th at Flatirons Kennel Club. Thank you so much to our friend Kim Raleigh who hauled her up to Colorado and helped her earn her first points.
Tuli was the fourth of the Lowri/Kevin puppies to hit the show ring and like her brother and sisters before her, she earned points at her first show. Tuli is a happy baby — I love having her with me.
