Acadia Presence of Mind Wins a Specialty Major!

What an exciting weekend! On Saturday, Acadia Presence of Mind, "Cassia", was Winners Bitch for a 4 point major at the Blue Ridge Shetland Sheepdog Club specialty show under breeder judge Ellen Worthington. Cassia won her class each show and was pulled for consideration in Winners under breeder judge Sandra MacIntosh Feret. Today Cassia's daughter, Acadia Stage Presence, "Liza", won Runner-Up Best in Sweepstakes and then won a HUGE, QUALITY PACKED class today under breeder judge Rick Thompson.

There were a lot of really, really nice shelties being shown this weekend. The judges kept commenting on the quality- so it was even nicer to be recognized with these wins. A lot of people came up me and told me how lovely the girls were, which of course made me so proud.

But Best of All were the wonderful people who helped me make these wins possible. My friend Kristen Bardell, who is not even a "sheltie person", gave up a whole weekend to drive to Virginia to help. Diane Troese and Brenda Fuller, who groomed up Cassia while I was in the ring with Liza- they made Cassia look fabulous! Therese Walters who trimmed Cassia's head last weekend for me in prep for this weekend. Cheryl Pike who showed Cassia in the winners class today when both Cassia and Liza won their classes. Dean and Rita Von Pusch who took FABULOUS pictures of Cassia. Bill and Dawn Phillips who brought New Champion, Glory up from North Carolina so she could come home. Phew! Thank All of You!
