Thank you Kevin for training your baby and letting me show her. Katana stands and behaives well for examination. Her gate is veru nice as well. However, she loves to play and took her first 3 shows to figure out that running to catch Bhageera and Mak in front of her to engage them in playing is not acceptable. By the 4th show , she got it!

Katana placed BOS x3, WB x3, Best BBE x 4 and RW , earned 3 points towards her CKC Champion title.
Well done, we are very happy with the results.

  Sadie, my 10 year old baby went into a show ring after so many years...just to humor me: she is just happy to be with me no matter what i decide to do. We still compete in Scent detection, but I wanted her go get into a show ring one more time for the old times sake.
She did fabulous: Best veteran in Group.

Please honor my veteran baby anmd watch her showing happily:
