Two Group 1 wins at Bel Air UKC shows

We had a nice weekend of shows, despite the unpredictable weather.  Solstafir took Herding Group 1 on Saturday afternoon, under Judge Violet Denney, and also took Herding Group 1 on Sunday morning, under Judge Donna Rommelfaenger!
In the other two shows of the weekend we brought home Group 2, and Group 3 honors.
I took the new puppy to show off a bit on Saturday, and while walking him around, we were pulled aside by Judge David Arthur, for some nice complements on his structure and movement.  I think he's gonna be a good one!

Lewisberry, PA - UKC shows

We had a very nice Saturday showing on April 30.   In show 1, Solstafir went Herding Group 1, under Judge David Kittredge, and in show 2, went Herding Group 2, under Judge Alleyne Dickens.  Mr. Ketteridge was especially complimentary of Solstafir, after BIS, and gave me a few words of advice for attaining the next step in UKC shows, a BIS or Reserve BIS win.
I also had fun handling a Shetland Sheepdog altered female, at her owner's request, and put a CH on her.  I took her to best altered sheltie in show one, and in show 2, I took her to best altered sheltie, and best in altered group to finish her.  Nice!
