2016 BCOA National Specialty

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The BCOA 2016 National Specialty was in Lawrence, Kansas. This year the regular class judge was Ron Spritzer and Futurity was Veni Harlan and Sweeps, Jon Reimer

.

The week started for us with the AKC LC on Sunday. Avalon Ww Darkskaya Dare, my beautiful Skaya, was due in season at anytime. Holding our breath, she passed inspection and could run in the trial. There were three stakes and she drew A which had some fabulous running Borzoi in it. She needs only a major to finish her AKC FC. Skaya ran beautifully in her prelim and was in a position to potentially place. In her final she drew her cousin, K-C Windsheer Edge of the Blade, a tremendously talented and beautiful Borzoi bitch bred by Kasey and Dale Parks and Leah Lanier. Razor, or as she is affectionately known, RaRa had placed highly in her prelim and is as hot as they come for running games! Amazingly both girls have similar running styles (RaRa’s grandsire: Avalon Time’s Dark Traveler and Skaya’s dam: Avalon Tigress in the Dark are littermates) and both girls love the lure coursing game.For me it was the most thrilling course of the whole trial. (as soon as I have pix I will post them)

Amazingly, Skaya won that final by 1 point but Razor had had such a terrific prelim that she won the stake! Skaya still needs that major win but her achievement is to have placed in the AKC Lure Coursing at Nationals for three years running! With all the new and hot youngsters that show up each year with such tremendous follow, this is a terrific tribute to Skaya’s coursing ability.

Monday, Skaya was entered in LGRA but alas, she came into season and we withdrew.

Tuesday was show day for Futurity and Hatsya’s first time in the show ring! She did very well but didn’t get any love from the judge.

I was asked if I would show a youngster, Drakon Avalon Cousteau O’Pendragon, call name Kazoo! He was a tad unsure about all the big doings going on at the show, so with the understanding that I would strive for a happy and good experience, we entered the ring.

Kazoo was looking for mommy but was happy to pay attention to me when I asked and under judge Veni Harlan, he made the cut in Futurity! I showed him in Sweeps and regular classes and he improved each time and is a beautiful Borzoi and a pleasure to be with! I am honored his owners and breeders trusted him to my care for his first show.

On Wednesday, Hatsya continued to show well though the judge didn’t place her. Never mind, this sweet girl was just a few minutes past 6 months of age and handled everything with panache and aplomb!

Thursday is dog day at the National so I showed Kazoo in his class and he was terrific and a sweet, sweet boy, handling challenges well but we got no love from the judge.

Friday is bitch day, so Hatsya and Skaya were in the rotation! Skaya showed beautifully as always and Hatsya did too, but no joy this year.

Saturday is Best of Breed and I was thrilled to be able show my Boomer! He absolutely rocked it and loves being in the ring. But again, no love was coming our way, so we showed and had fun and can’t wait to do it again!

This National Specialty, our friends Tom and KC of Zoiboyz, really were in the ribbons and prizes with their beautiful girl Aliza. She won both the ASFA LC and the AKC LC BOB prizes and then went WB and BOW!

The fabulous Gibson, sire to Skaya’s expected litter, finished his LGRA GRC title and was BOS!

Other friends and dogs of their breeding did exceptionally well too! Hatsya’s litter mates, Oxota Molodezovna Meissa and Oxota Molodezovna Alnitak both had terrific first shows!  Mimi won her regular class and got a hard look from the judge for WB and Stellar was 4th in his Futurity class! Avalon RiverRun Idle Dice Runtuff went Best Junior Dog and Runtuff Whiskeys Rebellion went Best in Futurity!!! His litter mate RunTuff RiverRun Black Betty  went Best Senior Bitch in Futurity!!! Skaya’s litter mate, Avalon Druid Dance Willowind was AOM!!! I am thrilled for my dear friends, Sandra Moore, Karla Smith, DVM, Kristen Suhrenbrock, Leonore Abordo and Kim Ketelsen, Anna Stewart, Rebecca Neal, Tom & KC and Susanne Cecere! Truly gorgeous Borzoi and wins so well deserved!

I know that I am missing some wins or placements, please forgive any oversight or mistakes! A National Specialty is a fairly overwhelming experience!

Looks like we will miss the next two specialties as they are on the coasts. Maryland in 2017 and Washington in 2018.

Great fun and a reunion that I look forward to each year!
