The Tallahassee Lassie

February 26, 2012

Our Lowri is in Florida this weekend for the Supported Entry Shows.  Yesterday Liz Hillebrand judged Sweepstakes and Lowri was Best of Opposite Sex.  Vivian Moran judged the regular classes and Lowri was awarded Best Opposite Sex to Dickens.  Dickens went on to a Herding Group IV.  We’re awfully proud of Lowri who turned 14 months old the middle of this month . . . and a big Whoo Hoo for Lowri’s pilot, Cheryl.  She does such a super job with the girl!  I’ll add today’s results to this post in a few hours.

Chase is there working on his Grand Championship in schmoozing.  To the Chaseman, that is what dog shows are all about. We’ve actually entered him in some shows in mid-March to remind him how show dogs act before he goes to Nationals.

Nola will go herding at noon today.  She would gladly giving up going off to dog shows in favor of making the sheep behave.  Photos of Nola’s antics later as well.

Results from Today:  Lowri was Best in Sweeps under judge Doug Greig (Best of Opposite was Paula O’Donnell’s Dolly/Dickens son Darren).  Then Lowri was again Best of Opposite Sex in the regular classes under JoAnne Pape.  Lowri has a bunch of Grand Champion points, all her competition wins, and at least two of her majors.  We’re very proud of the baby.

Congratulations to her Breeder Janet Suber and to all the members of Lowri’s team — co-owner/handler Cheryl Kienast, co-owner/trainer/conditioner Susan Shields, and head cheerleader ME!!!  Chase and Scout certainly made some beautiful babies.

    We had a fabulous time in Tallahassee! Lowri picked up two majors and 8 points. So far, she has four majors and 19 points. She is a dream to show, and live with, but not so great as a beddog 🙂 She likes to see if you are awake and if you are not, she walks over you to see if anyone on the next bed is awake. What a fun little dog!
