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!
Lil Miss Skaya ran yesterday and today at the Rocky Mountain Borzoi Club’s Annual Mother’s Day Lure Coursing. On Saturday she caught the bunny during her preliminary run, rolled twice and got right back up and finished strong. Her final run on that day she got a little silly and so she wound up in the ribbons, but in fifth place.
Sunday started off cold and cloudy but perfect running weather for Borzoi! Skaya’s prelim was spectacular and her final was just as pretty! She won the Open class! The weather turned off very cold, with blowing snow and almost zero visibility so the trial was called to a halt. This means that no breed runoffs could take place but the points are awarded to the open and special and veteran class winners! Skaya received a 5 point Major!
The theme of the costume contest was Aliens, due to proximity to Roswell, NM. The Borzoi are rocking purple tissue lame’ capes and paper mache’ coneheads tied on with twine. Prymaat is sporting a blue tissue lame’ cape, and underneath her signature apron, capris and mary janes. It was loads of laughs and we would do it again in a heartbeat!
Oxota RiverRun Tangmalangaloo Avalon, JC (ptd) was Fourth in Bred by Exhibitor, handled by his breeder/co-owner, Karla Smith, DVM and was also BISS Brace with his mother, BIF DC Valinor’s Circuit de Monaco at RiverRun SC, GRC, FCh, RN, CGC (CHIC # 57580) under Judge Bo Bengston
