2011 Newyear Ad on Sheltie Strut

Although 2010 was relatively quiet for us, we only had 1 litter of puppies, we did have some excitement.

We have our second AMERICAN champion "Nitelatches Grandgables Safari" aka Titan finished in 4 shows with 3 majors. We can't thank owners, Maureen Smith, Guy Jeavons and Mark McMillan enough for their dedication to "Titan".

Our only Canadian champion this year was Nitelatches Jitterbug. "Quiver" was handled by Taylor Stevenson who put the first 8 points on her. I got to show her and was able to get her last points and a Puppy Group win. Thanks Taylor for a job well done.

Most exciting was Taylor winning Zone 7 Junior Finals, which earned her a trip to Junior Nationals held in Calgary Alberta in November. Although Taylor did not earn a placement, she did an absolutely fabulous job and I am so very proud of her.

On a personal note, I can now judge all breeds in Group 7 and have some exciting assignments to look
forward to in 2011. Thank you to all the exhibitors who showed their dogs to me in 2010.

Brendan and I want to wish you all best of health, love of family and love of dogs surround you now and always.

Yours in shelties
