Virginia Terrier Club Results and NEw Champion

Pictured above is NEW Ch. Afterglows Beameups Captain Hook, aka Bob, owned by Kelvin Johnson (in my name on paper for record purposes)

Bob finished his championship this past weekend at the Virginia Cluster, taking a WD/BOW/BOS at the Virginia Terrier Club supported entry for a 3 point major and then taking a 3 point major on Saturday at the All Breed WD/BOW/BOS finishing his championship witha few points to spare. Bob finished quickly, taking his first 5 point major at the Dayton specialty and then pickign up a few points in Charlottesville and Bryn Mawr Kennel Clubs, so he was only shown in 4 weekends to finish. He is out of Ch. Book Maker De Champernoune owned and co-owned by Killanbrae scotties in Washington and Vandra Huber, and the dam is Ch. Afterglows Hellz Bellz and he was bred by Lisa Inman in CA. He is a Marko (Ch. Perhaps Sugardaddy) grandson.

Bob will be available for stud if anyone in the East in interested in new bloodlines. He is a Marko grandson. Email me at for his pedigree, hopefully I will get the website updated with info soon. Structurely he is very sound, beautiful neck and shoulder, in the picture, what you see is what you get, moderately short backed, clean movement coming and going and wonderful side gate, plenty of front and rear and good body. He is only 13 months old so he needs to mature, but he loved the show ring, and even got upset when I didn't show him on Sunday. haha

BEST OF BREED was CH. Land Rose R. JP Dear Mrs, (Dolce) owned by Mrs. Itoya for the scotties also on Friday, congrats Dolce!!!

BEST OF BREED Westie was Danny, Ch. Churchwarden Danny Boy O Donnybrook and he also made the cut in the group! Go Danny! Danny is currently ranked Top 10 in Westies breed points!

Until next time!

Latest and Greatest!

So we have some catching up to do since our last update in May...hmmm...lets see whats happening!

Danny has been on a good role, he's won 3 Best of Breed's his last 2 weekends out, including a Group 1 under Judge Lydia Hutchison at the Charlottesville KC, VA shows, thank you!!!
Danny is currently ranked #6 in Westie Breed Points, according to canine chronicle system!

Danny and his Junior Blair were also 1st in Novice Junior, Blair just needs one more win to advance to Open, she was 2nd on Sunday.

Ch. Land Rose R. JP Dear Mrs has also had a good run, taking Best of Breed all three days in VA Memorial Day weekend, and also Best of Breed Sunday at Charlottesville. Thank you Blair for your assistance to me at the shows with Dolce and Danny!

Also, our latest venture is the Doberman "Gunther" owned by Beverly Casey. He's a 13 month old male and has done very well since debuting with me in April at the Timonium Shows. So far he has garnered a Best in Sweeps, consecutive 12-18 month class wins, Winners Dog/BOW at Charlottesville, and Reserve Winners Dog Charlottesville.

Bob, our 5 point major winner at the rotating weekend, has also done well. We showed him at Charlottesville, his first time out since rotating and he got back to back WD/BOW for 4 more points, he needs just 6 points and a major to finish.

We are off to Bryn Mawr this weekend, home of the Devon Shows, and then on to Bel Alton, MD the following weekend.

I am open to take class Scotties if anyone is interested, I can condition in my home or I can take ringsides.
