September/October 2017

Betty, Can CH Estrella’s Pretty Betty Quick NA NAJ CD RE gave us a thrill going Winners Bitch at the 2017 Bearded Collie National specialty!  Thanks to breeder judge Michele Ritter for this exciting win!  Congrats to Betty’s owners Michel and Lousie!


We were super excited to travel to the Beardie National Speciality this month.  It has been several years since we have been able to attend so had been looking forward to this week for a long time.  We were able to visit with so many friends and extended family.  Zoe had 7 kids and 12 grand kids there participating in every venue!  This Speciality was extra special since it had 2 days of agility!  Mia got a STD Q the first day and a double Q the next!  Sawyer made is 16 in preferred debut and at 11.5 showed he is not slowing down by winning his Time to Beat class!  Sadly Soleil had to miss out since she came into season :(. Lots of other Estrella and AllAround beardie earned Qs and new titles it made me so proud!  In Rally and Obedience Ryan (Zoe/Stan) earned a 2nd place in Rally Novice B and Betty (Soleil/Chase) earned a 4th place in Rally Nov A and a first place in Nov A obedience.  In conformation Soleil came in 3rd in the bred by class and the big star of conformation was Betty who gave us a huge thrill and wend Winners Bitch!  Betty and her owner Michel are an awesome team. Betty is Michel’s first show Beardie and they have done an amazing job learning the ropes of the conformation ring as well as the rally, obedience, and agility rings.  I am SO proud of this amazing team!  It will be a week we sure won’t forget!!!
