Sheep Creek and gang packed their bags and headed to Chicago August 23-25 for the Chicago KBT Club’s annual Specialty weekend. With high hopes and four dogs in tow they excitedly prepped their dogs for the show ring. And they were not disappointed for their efforts! At Friday’s Specialty Fynn went Winners Dog and Azule Award of Merit. What a great start to the weekend!
Saturday morning was the Elgin Kennel Club show wherein Fynn was Winners Dog and Best of Winners! Azule was stunning in the ring and managed to earn Select Dog! Saturday afternoon was the KBTCC Concurrent Specialty. Electra was Winners Bitch earning her first major! She was beautiful. Fynn did not disappoint either, earning Winners Dog and Best of Winners, earning his Champion Title!! Fynn’s co-owner Lindsay put all the points on this boy for his champion title, her first show dog! Azule made the short list for Breed, but no love for him.
Sunday was the Elgin Kennel Club Show, Sheep Creek’s fourth competitor was Finian (Apreca x Fendi) and he earned Winners Dog! Very exciting for this beautiful young pup! Electra was Reserve Winners Bitch! Fynn and Azule made the shortlist for Breed in the Specials ring, but no love for either of them. What a great weekend for Sheep Creek!
After a short break following Kerryfest, Azule heads back to the ring at the Fort Dodge Kennel Club show this past weekend. Azule didn’t skip a beat, earning a Group 3 on Saturday from Judge Robert Miller and coming back on Sunday to earn a Group 2 under Judge Robert Powell. He was beautiful in the ring! This boy knows his job and loves it!
After Westminster, Azule and Conor headed to the Colorado Kennel Club show in Denver, Colorado. The show did not disappoint, Azule and Conor managed to win three Best of Breeds and two Group 1 wins!! It was a fantastic weekend for this team!
Azule and Conor traveled across the country from sunny California to snowy New York City for this year’s Westminster Kennel Club dog show! After much bathing, grooming and prepping it was time for this team to put their best paw forward. Azule was stunning! He showed the judge and those watching that he was made for this, stacking beautifully, moving effortlessly and putting on quite the show when it was his turn to spar. His efforts were rewarded with Grand Champion Select Dog! What a thrill it is to watch Azule’s accomplishments! We can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings!
It’s Westminster time! Our beloved Azule received Sheep Creek’s first invitation to compete at Westminster! What a privilege! You can watch the Kerry Blue Terrier ring at westminsterkennelclub.org on Tuesday, February 12th at 9:00 a.m. CST in Ring One. Keep an eye out for Azule and Conor and help us cheer him along!
It’s been an exciting week for Sheep Creek as Azule met up with his new teammate, Conor McFadden, at the AKC National Championship in Orlando, Florida. At the Brevard Kennel Club All Breed Show on Wednesday Azule and Conor were awarded Best of Breed! They did an amazing job representing the Kerry Blue Terrier in groups that day as well. A very nice start for the new team before the AKC Championship show this weekend.
As the show season of 2018 is coming to a close we are excited to announce that Azule’s plans for 2019 have been sealed. He will be campaigning in 2019 with Conor McFadden! We can’t wait to see what exciting times await this team next year!
Sheep Creek headed to the three day show in Sioux Falls this weekend with high hopes and were not disappointed! On Saturday, Azule was Best of Breed and headed into the competitive Terrier Group where he succeeded in securing a Group 1. Sunday was also exciting when he again secured Best of Breed and was once again competitive in the Terrier Group walking away with a solid Group 2 placing. It was a long weekend but well worth the effort!
