This past weekend Eden was Winner's Bitch for her first point! I was very excited as I had entered her on a whim. She is in the 12-18 month class which can be very awkward for shelties, but she was holding her coat, and her quality, so I decided just to enter her since I was going with Kiara anyway. That morning I noticed that Eden had come into season- bummer- sometimes that makes them feel a bit frumpy, so I didn't expect much.
Both days Eden was the only one in her class, so of course she would win it (unless the judge decided she was not quality and with-held the ribbon- which would have been a shock, but is one option). Kiara was in open sable both days. On Saturday Kiara didn't win her class, so I showed Eden in Winners- and she won! She showed like a little trooper and I was SO PLEASED to win. On Sunday Kiara did win the open sable class, so I showed Kiara in Winners and someone else had to show Eden. Kiara went Reserve and Eden had a good time playing in the ring :-)
I am really looking forward to reporting on the successes of this litter.

Acadia One Special Puppy, NAJ
Heidi follows up by saying, "She (Piper) is a blast to run and so much fun. We went to a brand new venue this weekend and she walked in as if she owned the place. I never had a dog who was so comfortable in her surroundings. It was a long day yesterday and she ended up sprawled out, asleep on someone else's tarp. ASLEEP!!! Who can sleep at a dog trial!!! Love, love, love this dog. Will continue to keep you updated!"
Thank you Heidi! Piper is the littermate to Dove and Canyon.
