I can't believe that I haven't posted on here since November 2022, and not been bragging from the rooftops that Katie is now the top bitch in the country! We took a big trip up to Pennsylvania in April where not only did Katie grab a Select Bitch, a Best of Variety, and an Owner-Handled Group 1, but she earned enough points to achieve the Silver level of her grand champion title. If you're not a show person yourself, you're probably sort of glazing over - blah blah blah blah. The short version, she's been doing really well in the show ring, and I'm super proud of her. Also at home are my foundation bitch, Bonnie, who is enjoying retirement; Larwood, the boy from England, who finished his championship and has had his first taster of the running event called FastCAT; and Hermia, who is one "major" away from her own championship. Larwood is also going to be a daddy soon, all being well. We bred him to Zoot (who lives with my mom) and are expecting puppies
Texangals Though She Be But Little, AKA "Hermia", made her debut at the Stephenville Kennel Club show in Belton TX on Friday Oct 21st in the Beginner Puppy class, and surprised me on her first down-and-back ever that she gave a most-professional stack in front of the judge. She went on to win the BP group, and best of all, seemed to have fun doing it! Two days later, she turned 6 months old and won 1st in her Bred By Exhibitor. Hopefully, this is the start of many ribbons to come!
