As many of you know, our beloved Riley (GCh. Roaneden’s Moral High Road RA ) was treated for a Mast Cell Tumour (Cancer) in 2016.
To celebrate his incredible recovery and retirement from our breeding program, we took Riley on a “Victory Lap” in August of 2017.
Riley entered 3 local dog shows in early August, taking Best of Breed each day. He then went on to participate in the 2017 Canadian Toller National!
While at the National, Shauna was approached by a wonderful young lady named Hailee Lavigueur. Hailee had entered into the Junior Handler Competition and needed a dog to take into the ring.
The Junior Handler Competition is unique in that the talent and capabilities of the Handler is being assessed, not the dog.
Riley is an old soul and happy to be with everyone! Shauna knew that he was showing really well and would do his best with Hailee.
We were so thrilled when Hailee was awarded a 1st place in the Intermediate Open Class and went on to win Best Overall Junior Handler at the National with our Riley by her side!!!
Our sincerest congratulations to Hailee on her fantastic win. We are so excited for this bright young talent and look forward to seeing her in the ring!
We would also like to thank Hailee for allowing our Riley to share in a small part in her wonderful accomplishment. We could not have found a better way to honour and celebrate the show career of this very special boy!!
