New Canadian Champion Geraldo

Over the last 3 weeks, I've had the pleasure of playing "second Mom" to Geraldo, aka Am./Can. Ch. MACH2 CastleGate's Daily News XF HT CGC CL2-R CL2-S CL2-F HCT VCX. Geraldo was sent to me by his breeder/owner Lynn Uram of Pennsylvania to be shown in Canada. He finished his championship in 2 weekends, taking Best of Breed and Group 3rd the day he finished, then following it up with another Group 3rd the next day as a move-up.

Congrats Lynn, and thank you for entrusting me with your baby boy. It has been my pleasure. Tomasz & I will miss having a dog sleeping at the end of the bed!

Growing Old Gracefully

Today, at the Ottawa Kennel Club dog show Veterans Competition, my little old girl Calli was awarded Best Overall Veteran by judge Jodie O'Meara. Formally known as Ch. Candega Callisto, Calli proved to all that she still has what it takes to be a wonderful show dog.

At nearly 14.5 years of age, she showed like a trooper, and had a blast!

Mmmm ... she loved the special bait I made for her.

Moving around the ring like a pro.

Taking a well deserved rest on the way home after her busy day!

Tomasz & I were both so proud of her. This was probably her last time in the show ring ... I'm glad she left on such a high note. Special thanks to Jodie O'Meara for seeing the sparkle in her eye!
