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!

Today we went to Dr. Barb’s to further polish our herding dogs. It is so green that it hurts my eyes! Chase is working well. He has reached the point at which he understands silence and the bubble and pressure. His daughter Addie will be trying her paw at Pre-Trial Tested in Colorado next month. I was very proud of her work — she loves herding. Ellen has both of these dogs aiming to peak at the right time. So, photos:

Puppy kindergarten ended with Tuli being promoted to first grade (Beginning Novice). Many thanks to Maggie Gee who gave our puppies lots to think about. Pam Day and Lacey and Josh Carrillo with Rev were also in the class, but were not in this photo.

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.
