Yea! Poppy got her championship!

Posted By on October 16, 2016

I thought Poppy would be a show girl since she was a little puppy.  She has her faults, but was always a cute puppy with a pretty face, and has always had attitude over the top! Eventually Poppy matured enough to behave in the show ring, and at the Canton, TX show on October 14, 2016, she picked up the last point needed for her AKC championship at the age of 20 months. She would probably have finished last June, but I messed up and only got her entered in one of the Denton shows in May. By her last show in June, Poppy had 14 points and two major wins. She only needed one point to finish. The problem was, Poppy had shed her pretty coat to the point she almost looked like a smooth collie. We had to wait for new coat to come in. She doesn’t have her full winter coat yet, but was looking good enough to show again– so mission accomplished! Here are a couple of pix of Poppy yesterday after the show. It was hot at the Canton show, so we left soon  after we showed.

I want to thank the people that showed Poppy for me. My friend Lea Bertsch started Poppy off and got her first several points. Our buddy Margie Blount helped out and kept Poppy in the ring to get a point in Belton. Brian Livingston’s team showed Poppy to get her two major wins, and Jamie Ennis showed Poppy for her last point yesterday. I also want to thank Robin Adcock who helped us with Layla and a million other things!


Now I think we are probably done with shows until January. We are counting down the days until Ms. Robin has her puppies. The vet said four or five puppies on the sonogram, but she looks bigger than that to me! I can’t way to see her little goblins pop out by Halloween!
