Our Mick x Kess kids shine at the National Specialty!

Our Change Litter"Mick" (GCH Country Squire Center Stage) and "Kess" (CH Admiralty's The Gift) kids turned 6 months just 2 days before the National ...  These fun, leggy kids showed us a glimpse of what their futures may hold and helped dad win the Stud Dog Class.

Sterling Wins WINNERS DOG at the 2017 National Specialty!

What an exciting National we had! Never in our wildest dreams did we expect to do anything with our 6 month (and 3 days!) old puppies other than have fun in the ring. Man, were we wrong!!

First, "Sterling" (Linwood Foreign Exchange) - owned by Gordon Hayburn and Noreen Lorenz - won his large 6-9 mo puppy dog class and went on to defeat all the beautiful big dogs for Winners Dog for a 5 point major ... there was no one more surprised, or proud, than us!
