The thrill ride called Boomer is such a joy! I entered him on Saturday, just to go have some fun with my friends and lo and behold da Boom had an AMAZING day!
Boomer was awarded BOB and OH for a 5 point major under AKC Judge Russell McFadden.
He show really well in the regular Hound Group but we walked out empty handed to the NOHS Hound Group ring under AKC Judge Lew Olsen.
Boy howdy he just floated and nailed every free stack! Thank you very much for the NOHS Hound Group 1!!! Whoa! Now we get to go to the NOHS Best in Show competition with 6 other fabulous breeds!
Our judge was our breed judge from earlier in the day, Russell McFadden. Boomer showed beautifully again! No exhaustion, no dip in attitude, it was like it was the start of our day!
So, we wait while the judge marks his book and comes back with the ribbons to award. RBIS goes to the fabulous JH with her Aussie and then he pointed at Boomer!!!!!!! NOHS BEST IN SHOW!!!!!
Wow! What an amazing day! I always take the best in show dog home with me from these competitions but that day THE JUDGE AGREED!!!!!
So, my very first Borzoi is NOHS BIS BISS GCH CH Oxota RiverRun Tangmalangaloo Avalon, JC, CGC, RN multi AOMs and the King of My Heart, Boomer!
At the Rio Grande Kennel Club’s 100th Anniversary Show sweet Perlova Avalon Giddy Up Go, CC finished her AKC Championship with a huge win over specials to go BOB for a five point major!! Judge Alan Odom awarded Giddy BOB from BBE to finish.
Judge Odom also awarded my beautiful ASFA BIF Oxota Molodezovna Hatsya, FCh, SC (NOFCA OFC pointed) Major Reserve! Thank you to breeder Leonore Abordo for handling Hotsi in WB!
Judge Stewart Dankner of Canada awarded my new champion a regular Hound Group 4, just to make sure my mind was totally blown in a fabulous way!
And on Sunday, CH Perlova Avalon Giddy Up Go, CC was awarded BOB over specials for the first time as a special herself! Thank you Judge Stewart Dankner for recognizing and rewarding this very quality Borzoi bitch. Judge Dankner admonished me to never doubt my bitch, she is that good, he said.
I must absolutely congratulate and thank my co-breeder, Sandra Moore of Avalon Borzoi for all of her friendship, support and encouragement. To the breeders of the phenomenal Gibson, Tom Golcher and KC Thompson (Zoiboyz), thank you for jumping on board & encouraging me in my first adventure in breeding a litter and to Melissa Pearce (Attaway Borzoi & Silkens) for helping me get the breeding done!
Looking to the next title, Giddy will be starting Rally training soon! VLAA here we come! Fingers crossed! LOL
Sweet Giddy, who thinks lure coursing is a tad lame compared to LGRA and open field coursing has managed to get her first SC leg at the Lobos Lure Coursing Club’s recent AKC trial! We hope she will hang in for three more trials so she can achieve her Senior Courser title!
My special Skoosh finished her AKC Championship at the Rio Pecos Kennel Club Dog Show!
Skaya is my first AKC Dual Champion and I am so very grateful to her breeders: Sandra Moore (Avalon Borzoi); Dr. Susan Van de Water, MD (Borzoi Del Sol); Diana Embry (Willow Wind) and Shelby Bergstressor for this incredibly special Borzoi. Skaya truly does it all: coursing, hunting, rally obedience and conformation shows! She makes my heart beat! Thank you!
Perlova Avalon Boldly Go “Kirk” and Perlova Avalon Giddy Up Go “Giddy” had some lure coursing practice at the Los Lobos Coursing Club last weekend! Both had a bit of confusion as they were slipped but soon got with the program to chase the bags. Very pleased with both of these youngsters! Thank you Leonore Abordo (Borzoi Oxota) for helping slip puppies & to KC Thompson (Zoiboyz) for the great pix!
Boomer is the RMBC Winter Specialty Best in Specialty Show, BOB. Breeder Judge Del Richards, life member of the BCOA bestowed the honor. Shown in the photo is Leonore Abordo, breeder of this gorgeous Borzoi who placed him with a first time Borzoi owner. Thank you to everyone!
