Great weekend. Beautiful dogs and lots of fun. I will get together some pictures soon. We had a wonderful time with old friends and made some new ones. A Standard Schnauzer went BIS back to back to the thrill of Penny Duffee. One day I hope it is one of our dogs performing that well. Owner handled of coarse!

This was a great weekend!!!!! We got Cinder back in the ring and she showed well going Reserve both days. But the real news was how well Magic did.

What a thrill!!!!

Another thrilling weekend. We brought out "the boys" for their first shows. 'Stormy', Von Rose Stormy Winter von Link and 'Shade', Von Rose Hazy Shade of Winter turned six months old and are ready to take the show ring by storm! Stormy won his puppy class on Saturday. Shade returned the favor on Sunday by winning the puppy class and going Reserve to a major, beating a dog that had completed his championship the day before.
The real big news was that Cinder went Best of Winners and BOS on Saturday to get her final major and finish her Championship. So may I introduce our new champion .... CH Von Links Cinderlady von Rose!!! (see picture). Cinder went SEL on Sunday.
Magic went SEL on Saturday and BOS on Sunday to add a couple more majors toward his Grand Championship.
- End of July. Magic is ranked 14th by the AKC in breed points.
