In the first show, hosted by the Elora Kennel Club, Hadley took Select! It was a great warmup and she was in with a lovely group of Tollers.
We were really excited and nervous about the second show. This was the Southwestern Ontario All Retriever Specialty Show!! We entered this one specifically because they do such a great job and have such lovely ribbons for the competitors. A higher number of dogs usually enter as well because it is one of the last big shows of the year!
Well, our Hadley took Best of Opposite while GChEx Roaneden’s Pond Star (Chumlee) took Best of Breed. We wouldn’t have be happier!! Not only was this the most prestigious of Hadley’s wins so far, but Chumlee is also the sire of our 2016 Circle of Life Litter.
Hadley is just over 18 months and is maturing beautifully. She is wicked smart, has an unbelievable temperment and truly carries the Spirit of her Mom and Dad (Quivari x Riley). I am beyond words at how grateful I am to have this special girl in my life.
Our sincerest thanks to Judge Ms. G. Taylor for amazing honour.
Pending health clearances and completion of her Grand Champion title, Hadley will be joining our breeding program in January of 2018!!
