Sage and I travelled to the Land OíLakes shows where she exceeded our expectations by taking three four point majors to finish her American championship! These were all specialty wins too and the competition was outstanding. Special thanks to Jeri El Dissi who saw the potential in this youngster after showing her at the US National in Kansas this past November. At her first show as a new champion, Sage made the first cut in a lovely lineup. What a great weekend for us!

We had a great time and packed a lot of fun into 5 days.

Jagger finishes 2017 as the #4 Bred-by-Exhibitor dog in the U.S. What a great accomplishment for the two of us!

September 2017

Jagger was entered at our local show the first week of September and took the breed 3 out of 4 shows and that gave him his Grand championship. To make the weekend even better he won a Group 4 placement in a nice lineup of working dogs on the Friday.

The above photo is Jagger and me with his Group 4th ribbon.

The stats are also out from the U.S. and Jagger is still the #1 Bred-By Exhibitor dog and #7 class dog for the first half of 2017. Hereís hoping he has enough points to keep him in the stats to the end of the year!

June 2017

Jagger made the AMCA stats for the first quarter of 2017 as the Best Bred-By Dog in the U.S. and tied for 2nd place as the Best Class Dog overall! That is quite an achievement for a dog from Canada and we couldnít be more proud of our boy!

January 2017

Jagger and I travelled to Land OíLakes super cluster with two Malamute specialties, one Group 3 Specialty and two all breed shows. A busy weekend for sure and Jagger had an amazing time by taking points at 3 of the shows including a major, and Reserve to the points at the other two. All this gave him his championship and we couldnít be more proud of this boy!!

We are happy to announce that Sarge left today for his new home with the extended Both family in NW Ontario. While we are sad to see the Big Guy leave us, we know there are many new adventures to be had in his new home. Sarge will continue to be a country boy and keep the property safe from bunnies and squirrels.

Farrah, US National Veteran    Farrah, sidegait
Farrah is shown in the ring at the 2013 US National Specialty shows in Oconomowoc, WI.  I took Farrah along with her son Jagger.

I had Farrah entered in the Veteranís class along with Sweepstakes and the quality of the girls in her class was outstanding. Several were group placing in their day and most were Nationally ranked in the U.S. at some point in their career. Farrah and I managed a 4th place out of 12 in the sweepstakes with some very stiff competition under breeder judge Lynda Birmantas-Beam. Farrah came away with a fancy ribbon, a new plush dog bed, a stuffed toy and enough money to buy me dinner!!

Jagger was shown by good friend Jennifer Remazki from Spiritrun Kennels and, while they didnít place, it was good experience for him. Jagger now needs some time to mature and will be spending the winter doing just that before he hits the ring again in the spring of 2014.
