BCOA National Specialty in Reno, NV
BCNC Specialty in Reno

We had a great time in Reno visiting with and meeting new people! We also got to meet in person Lize Edland and Rickard Sellin, Monkee’s breeders, who had flown in from Sweden – what a treat!

In lure coursing, Sassi won the Open Stake B, and then tied the run-off for first overall in Open and lost the re-match to the eventual breed winner. Winning her stake gave her 40 points, and she completed the requirements for her ASFA Field Championship! In the Field Champion stake, Miss T came in 2nd and Flareon placed 3rd.

In the LGRA straight-racing, Flareon placed 4th of 41 and earned 2 NRC points towards her SGRC2. She was also the High Score Field Champion. Miss T placed 6th and was the High Score Bench Champion, and Monkee placed 11th.

In the classes, Kalipso placed 4th in the 9-12 Puppy Dog class. Monkee made the first cut in a large Open class. Nikki was the big emotional experience – she won her Veteran Bitch 10 Years and Older class, with one of the bitches present being one that I greatly admire. Nikki was having a great time, and smiling and strutting in the ring.

At the BCNC (Borzoi Club of Northern California) specialty on Sunday, Monkee took third in a large Open bitch class. Nikki won Best Veteran Bitch in Sweepstakes and then made the cut in Breed from the Veterans class.
