a few small brags
« on: April 21, 2010, 01:01:57 PM »
a little late, but i thought i'd share anyways..

This past Friday, both Cassius and Nikki were shown in Veterans at my club's specialty (the Sacramento Valley Boxer Club), and much to my surprise, Nikki won her class!!  She was Best Veteran Bitch under Judge Lawrence Sinclair.  I had our handler show Nikki, which was a special treat to see those 2 in action again.  As much as i like to get in the ring myself, Nikki and Kim really made a great team in the ring; fun for me to watch Kim and Nik work again, especially since i was not present when they took that major which made Nik a Champ.  They didn't miss a beat.  Cassius came in 2nd in his class (beat by a group winning male who is slightly younger than Nikki), which we're still thrilled about since he was never a show dog.  Even my handler remarked to me while they were in the ring.. "wow, he really just wants to do it on his own huh?" :D  Cassius looked amazing, and in my unbiased opinion, if he had the showmanship the Best Vet. Dog had, he would have won.  I had lots of people remark at just how great he looked.. not too shabby for my boy who has never step foot in the show ring as a youngster, and will be 8 this Aug.   ;D

I did get some pics which i will upload once i find my camera's USB cord (we're wrapping up moving homes), and I believe Dexter's mom got video which she is uploading as well.  This leads me to my next little brag...

Sunday at a USDAA (agility) trial held close to Sacramento, our young  boy Dexter (will be 2 very soon), took 1st place in Snooker handled by his mom Lena!  (i am not familiar w/ agility, but here's what the website describes Snooker)  We're so proud of Team Dex.. and we really can't wait to see how far they go.  Lena's got her eyes set on a MACH title.. hehe   :partybanana:

I'm so proud of the kids.. they amaze us daily, regardless of what they do in the rings, they are all champions of our hearts. Thanks for letting me brag a bit!   :smitten:
