Locke’s Official Win Photo from Greeley last weekend

5 point major under breeder Judge Dana Massey


Havent done many this year. Between back to back Nationals on opposite ends of the country and puppies soon after, the show this past weekend has been our second all breed show this year. We made it into a vacation and had a ton of fun visiting with friends and watching different breeds show. Got to participate in and watch the Eukanuba Breeders Stakes on Friday night which was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Its neat to watch the different groups of dogs and see so many breeding programs at once. Having three dogs from each program in the ring together is a great visual. Took a ton of photos!!

As always, coming home with points is icing on the cake. I didnt expect much, as I really just wanted to go to the shows to get a break from the real world. Baby Locke ended up winning a 5 point major on Sunday under breeder judge Dana Massey (who is more famous for her Weimeraners than her Pointers…) and Domino picked up an additional point on Sunday as well to add to his small count. He hasnt been out much since he turned a year old, and is finally starting to look a bit more like an adult Cardigan instead of an awkward teenager.  Both boys were Reserve Winners Dog on Saturday in their respective breeds.

Camille (or as one judge referred to her – “The white bitch”) won her class both days but went no further. Widget as well…won her class both days but went no further.

Locke at APC Nationals 2013

Our baby Locke’s first show was the Pointer National….quite the first show for the baby!

But it was also good – big grassy ring, lots of time to hang out and enjoy himself in the ring, and plenty of exposure to lots of “show stuff”…so a great experience.

No ribbons, but was pretty happy with how the baby boy did.



Sometimes it’s the unexpected that keeps life interesting.
I was not planning on adding another Pointer to our crew. I figured the next Pointer would be born here. And then a couple litters were born this winter that made me go “Ohhhhhhhh”….but then Brian retired and this and that and time passed…….and then I kept seeing this handsome face on a gorgeous head with a pedigree that can’t be passed up in a great looking pup…..

And so Locke flew to us from Ohio and became Locke (or Terrapointe I Got This at Grandiose)

And he is wonderful. And fantastic. And we love so much about him.
