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 makes her Debut into the AKC Show Ring
at just 6 months and 10 days young! We are so very proud!

In Vallejo 3/21/2015 & 3/22/2015 Stevie Struts her stuff around the show ring for the 1st time in the 6 to 9 month puppy class. She shows her heart out taking 1st place in her class of 1 (sigh) she had no competition but is beautiful any way.
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
