Under a panel of 3 judges (1 of which was not a judge from this weekend) Stevie shows against the Reserve Best Puppy In Shows and takes a Best Of The Best Puppy In Show!
Stevie starts her AKC show career off with a BIG BANG too
At the Sunmaid Kennel Club Shows in Fresno, Ca 1/31/2015 & 2/1/2015 Stevie showed her heart out both days and was handled by my very good friend Abbie Brandon of Jab Kennels.
Stevie at just 4 1/2 months continues to shine and impress, going 4 to 6 month puppy Group 1 on Saturday and 4 to 6 month puppy Group 2 on Sunday.
The competition was stiff with some very nice working dog puppies to compete with and on Saturday in the Best In Show ring she got looked at hard and was seriously considered for best 4 to 6 month puppy In Show. We saw the judge the next day and she stopped to tell us how close it really was.
Stevie looking FANTASTIC at 5 months & 3 days old
Just a few weeks until we hit the AKC/UKC show rings for real! Can't wait to see what she does. My guess is she shines like the star she promises to be.
I think I should change Stevie's name to the It Factor
Because she definitely has IT going on!
This girl is a personality plus. She LOVES everybody Human/Dog and fears nothing! She seems to LOVE being in the ring and struts her stuff like she own the place.
She has the sweetest personality & best temperament! She is a very happy girl with the right attitude! I couldn't be more proud!!!!!
This girl never ceases to AMAZE me!
THIS GIRL BLOWS ME AWAY! I couldn't love her anymore! She is such an AWESOME Puppy that is racking up quite the win history. She now has 11 Best Puppy in Shows, 1 of which is a UKC Specialty, 1 of which is an AKC Specialty! Of these 11 Bests 10 of them were from the 3 to 6 month UKC Novice Puppy Shows, 1 was from the 6 to 9 month class bitch class 4 days before turning 7 months! Additionally she has an AKC 4 to 6 month Puppy Group 1 & Group 2! I don't think it's going to take long at all to get this girls AKC & UKC GRCH Titles! She will no doubt be super fun to special!
At just 5 1/2 months Stevie has quite the record for her wee little self.

Pictured above is her 1st official AKC win picture 3/22/2015 as a 6 month old and she looks FABULOUS. If I do say so myself.

On 4/9/2015, at the Sacramento Valley Boxer Club Specialty, I showed Vendetta-GalaRoc's Gold Dust Woman aka Stevie to 1st in her Sweeps Class of one.....
Then on to the regular show and I again showed Stevie to 1st in her Class of 1 but in the WB line up of 8 Stevie was pulled in the short list of 4. The judge gave her a good long look and unfortunately didn't pick her for winners or reserve. I thought we were done. I sat and relaxed and watched BOB and was getting ready to get up and leave and heard #38 back to the ring for Best Puppy (I thought we were done)! I had to run and get Stevie from her crate and go in the ring with the other puppies and much to my pleasant surprise Stevie was picked for Best Puppy at our Specialty Show.
I guess I was a little excited because I yelled Wahooooo Kinda Loud!
When the judge was giving me her plaque and rosette she told me how nice Stevie is and said she almost gave her winners and thinks she should have because she is lovely and very nice! If fact when I asked for a picture with her she said I would have to send her a copy (Hard Copy) because she was so nice she wanted an actual picture for her wall not and emailed picture!
I LOVE THIS PUPPY!
The picture below is Stevie the the Sacramento Kennel Club Show on 4/12/2015, The day Stevie turned 7 months old. She was expertly handled by Wendy Bettis. She looks amazing here! Thank you so much Wendy Bettis

In Santa Maria Stevie again blows us away
On 9/25/16 at the SLO Dog Trails held in conjunction with the West Coast Boxer Club at our shows in Santa Maria, I entered Stevie in Rally Obedience (again expecting to do nothing) since she has no real obedience training. Again much to my pleasant surprise Stevie earned her 2nd & 3rd Q in Rally Obedience with scores of 88 (70 needed to Q) in both trails and earns her RO1 and went on to take RBIMBS in Show 1 earning her 2nd Total Dog. But wait there is more, Stevie also earned her SPOT title (almost a SPOT ON) with 8 excellent and 2 Supers in 10 stations! She needed 10 Excellents for the SPOT-ON rating. WTG Stevie!!!!!! We are so proud!!!! We can hardly wait to get her back in the Rally Ring and then Obedience!
On 9/24/16 at the SLO Dog Trails held in conjunction with the West Coast Boxer Club at our shows in Santa Maria, I decided to try something new with Stevie so I entered Stevie in Rally Obedience (expecting to do nothing) since she has no real obedience training. Much to my pleasant surprise Stevie got her 1st Q in Rally Obedience with a score of 87. A score of 70 is passing. Unfortunately her 2nd run she was excused because she had no attention on me as she was more interested in the dogs in the other ring that got to fetch dumbbells and jump the jumps. Anyhow, in conformation she did nothing in show 1 but in show 2 she took BIMBS and earned her 1st Total Dog Award. We are so proud!
