Amy reports that his scores were 192 1/2, 198 1/2, and 187 1/2. Amy is such an inspiration- she is 88 years old, and still trains, competes and loves her dogs and life!
In that same email, Amy reported that on July 13th Quill took 4th place in the 12" Jumpers class (agility). 18 competed and 7 Q'd. Quill's time was 34.88 sec. and standard course time (STC) was 46 sec, 149 yards. I am so amazed by this team.
On Saturday Manny was winners dog for a 4th major to finish. That same day, at the same show, Merry was Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a major as well. This brought her within 1 point of finishing.
Today, Acadia Cierra Like A Rock, AXJ, NA, NF, RN, HT, *VC* (Nicky), won his first major. He now has 12 points and just needs 1 more major to finish his championship. Nicky's win is HUGE! He needed a major to achieve the ASSA (American Shetland Sheepdog Association) Versatility Certificate (VC) - DONE! When he wins the next major, he will not only be a Ch., but he will be a Champion/ Versatility Certificate Excellent (or Ch/VCX). His mother, Ch. Sunburst Acadia Here I Come (Carrie), currently has 4 champion offspring. 5 champion offspring will give her the ASSA Register of Merit (ROM) award. Both the Ch/VCX and the ROM are considered Lifetime Achievement Awards with the ASSA. If all of the entered dogs show up at the show next weekend, it will be majors on Saturday and Sunday. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Nicky can win one of those two days to finish!
Cassia won a major today (her third major) to finish her championship. She needed 3 single points to finish and a major is worth between 3-5 points (depending on the size of the entry). Today's major was worth 3 points so she completed the title. She was shown exclusively in the Bred-by-Exhibitor class, and that will earn her an invitation to show at the Eukanuba show this coming January in Florida!!!
