Spruce Meadows - 2022

Our second show of the year, and always one of my favourites! :) There were FIVE Whippet/Hound specialties-including the National Whippet Club of Canada, and four All Breed Shows. Crazy busy weekend, so I focused on the Specialties.

I entered Amore in Veterans at Four of the five Specialties.

1) Rocky Mountain Whippet Association of Alberta: Best of Opposite Sex, Best Veteran in Breed, & Best Canadian Bred with 34 Whippets entered

2) Alberta Sporting Hound Association: Best Of Opposite Sex and Best Veteran in Breed, 40 Whippets entered.

3) Foothills Gazehound Club:  BEST OF BREED from the Veterans class, Best Veteran in Breed and  Best Veteran in Multi Breed specialty! Amazing. :) 40 Whippets entered.

4) National Whippet Club of Canada: Amore’s brother Pseu won Best Veteran at the National, and also first Award Of Merit! Proud breeder brag.

Opal? Well she did a massive win thing called Best Of Opposite Sex in National Specialty. I could not be prouder of her! She was entered in three of the other four Specialties, but didn’t find much love there. 

Overall, a fantastic weekend, that I’m over the moon happy about, and a very proud breeder.

NACA - 2022

Our first dog show in 2022, and only the second one we attended since the start of Covid. I love this show, it’s always been a favourite of mine!

I only had Opal entered in the All Breed, and entered Amore as a Veteran for one day at the All Breed, and in Veterans at the Alberta Lure Coursing Association Specialty. Opal was Select Bitch Every show competed in, and Amore warmed up at the All Breed, to win Best Of Opposite Sex at the Specialty, and then Best Veteran in Multi Breed Specialty! We are very proud of both of them, and had a wonderful time at the Specialty. It was so nice to get away, and re-connect with some people we hadn’t seen in a long time.
