Up Coming Events

Dalia and Audrey have been little Rock Stars lately.  We have been having a lot of fun traveling around Ontario to different United Kennel Club and Canadian Kennel Club shows.  On August 20th-21st, Dalia and Audrey were entered in the Grand River Kennel Club (UKC) Show in Rockton, Ontario.  Under Judges Elaner Heagy and Lynda Proulx Dalia placed Best in Breed and Audrey was Best Puppy in Breed.  Under Judge Jennifer Landers, Dalia placed Best in Breed, Best in Group and Best in Show!  We were shocked and amazed.  Audrey was Best Puppy in Breed too.  Under Judge Brenda Landers, Dalia was Best in Breed and Best in Group.  Little Audrey sat this show out as she was quite tired from all her ring appearances.  Before the weekend shows ended, the Club held a Best of Winners competition.  Dalia was awarded Best of the Best.  Words cannot describe how we felt.   Below is a picture of Judge Jennifer Landers, Judge Brenda Landers, Amanda, and Dalia after her big win.


On August 27 and 28th, we took a very long road trip to Long Sault, Ontario for the 2nd Schapendoes Specialty held at Stormont, Dundas, & Glengarry Dog Association.  We had a great time there meeting about 20 Schapendoes and their owners.  On Saturday, August 27th under Judge Alistair Sutherland in the Sweepstakes competition Dalia took Best in Sweepstakes.  Under Judge Godelieve De Wit, Dalia was placed Best Female and Best of Winners and Audrey was Best Baby Puppy.  Under the Judge Denys Janssen, Dalia took Best Female and Best of Opposite and Audrey took Best Puppy in Breed.  On the 28th, under Judge Wayne Douglas Dalia placed Best Female and Best in Breed.  We are so thankful to all the judges, and to the Schapendoes Club of Canada for putting on a great specialty.  We look forward to keeping up with our new friends and hope to see them all again soon at upcoming shows and events.  Here is a picture of Dalia and Amanda running the ring for the Sweepstakes competition and a photo of Dalia with all her ribbons.  There is also a photo of little Audrey with her ribbons too. 



So where will we be next?  Dalia, Audrey, Amanda and the gang will be heading to the International Center to compete in the Oakville & District Kennel Club Show on September 10th and 11th.  This event is being held within the Canadian Pet Expo event.  We will be in Ring 5 under Judge Ms. N. Tibben at approximately 12:50pm on Saturday and in Ring 4 under Judge Ms. T. Buckley-Bettis at approximately 10:45am.  The event is open to the public, so if you can make it come on by and cheer on your favourite breed.  We are planning on walking around the Canadian Pet Expo with our girls after the show and would love to meet any of you and introduce you to our girls.
