Texarkana KC 2016

By R. Lynn Shell  Jun, 21, 2016   Posted in dogshow
Finally time to dip my toes back into the AKC pool with a brief trip to Texarkana with a couple of Borzoi, Rusti and Barbee. I didn’t make the shows in Denton – sent Victor instead – so it was kinda nice to get back out again. Even better since I was sharing a room with longtime-no-see friend Rebecca!! We met up at the show site a little after 8 in the evening, trying to find the ever-so-rare space for grooming. Rebecca had...

Fort Bend Kennel Club - A New Borzoi Champion for Gryffyn's Aeyrie! January 19 At the Saturday show in Rosenberg, Ray took Winners Dog for 2 points and finished his AKC conformation championship. Boo then won her Bred-by Exhibitor class and went on to Winners Bitch / Best of Winners for 2 points. With this win, she entered what we so fondly call the “singles club” – needing a single point to finish. The judge was Elizabeth Muthard. So happy that Victor went down while I was home in bed nursing...

Lone Star Classic - December 2012 On Saturday, Boo (Gryffyn’s Aeyrie Boudicca) won the Bred-by Exhibitor bitch class and went on the Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a 4-point major. A young and gangly Beast (Gryffyn’s Aeyrie Party Animal – Boo’s half-nephew)¬†was Reserve ¬†Winners Dog (and the judge had some nice comments about him, despite it looking like I was showing a white/cream tornado). He showed fairly well considering his lack of...

Lump Adds a Title

By R. Lynn Shell  Nov, 04, 2012   Posted in newtitle, racing
Nothing like a straight-racing meet closely following the conclusion of a speedy bitch’s heat cycle when their speed tends to be affected by the post-hormonal slump. Even so, Lump, aka Lumpus, formally known as FC Gryffyn’s Aeyrie Here With You, SC FCh, has added a new title to the alphabet soup attached to her name. She finished the requirements for her Gazehound Racing Champion title, eking them out in a tie with another...

Rocky Mountain Borzoi Club Specialty Show – Fall 2012

Once again it was time for my annual excursion to the Fall specialty hosted by the Rocky Mountain Borzoi Club in Longmont, Colorado. It’s always great to meet up and visit with the folks in the area, as well as getting to see all the lovely local borzoi there. My traveling companion was Leslie and her lovely girl Danika – their first trip to RMBC. After an uneventful (for us) Sweepstakes competition, we had a touch of success in the...
