Not much action at the shows for us. Ella (Windacre Fashion Statement) went to 2 shows this spring and has 2 points. I will show her and Rio at Vernon this summer.
In Feb. we had puppies. Jewel (Ch.Windacre Jewel in the Crown) and Rio had
3 (2 males and 1 female). Jewel retired to a couch on Vancouver Island, so we kept her daughter, Ruby (Windacre Crowned Jewel). Look for Ruby at the shows in the fall. Ceinwen (Ch.Windacre Ceinwen Conspiracy) had a litter by Rhys 4 (2, 2). Ceinwen too has retired.
In May we had our first litter from Tasha (Ch.Brat Nouz Jivanshi) who came to us from Russia. Tasha was bred to Wallace and they had 3 pups (1 male, 2 females). They are big fat puppies!
We plan to breed Marta (Windacre Prime Meridian) to Rhys and also Bling for her first time to Rhys. 2011 will be the year of the puppies!
In August, Clara went to her first shows in Victoria. She managed to receive 7 points and also was Group 3rd the last day. Her second set of shows was in Kamloops where she finished her CH. and became Ch.Windacre Soul Sister.
Rio (Ch.Windacre All about Rio) decided to try for his Am.Ch. He received a 3 point major his first weekend. He is home now to wait for future shows.
Our 6 month old Ruby (Windacre Crowned Jewel) went to Kamloops to keep Clara company and her very first show she was best puppy in group and went on to be best puppy in show (all breeds). There were 4 shows in Kamloops and she won BPIG all 4. Ruby was at the Skaha KC shows September 9th to 11th and she picked up 2 more BPIGs and 4 points towards her CH.
Also in Sept. we were happy to receive 2 new puppies from Europe, Matyas from the Czech Republic and Jolie from Poland. Thank you Jana and Anna!
They have fit in well and we look forward to their bright future.
