Avalon Kennel Club – May 19/20

We had a great weekend at the Avalon Kennel Club shows on the May long weekend.

On Saturday,  Cooper (MRBIS GCh Maribelle’s Get On Your Boots) took home a Group 1st and his third Reserve Best In Show, under Judge Ron Mahon.  Not to be outdone by Dad, Cooper’s daughter Ariel (Maribelle’s Part of Your World) won Best Baby Puppy in Group both shows, and went onto Best Baby Puppy in Show!   Cooper and Ariel were breeder/owner handled!

On Sunday we were fortunate to be able to present Darwin, Maribelle’s Worth Melting For, owned by Nikita Stapleton and Daniel Smith.  This handsome little guy defeated his litter sister and went on to win both Best Baby Puppy in Group awards.  Darwin was expertly piloted by our dear friend and favourite bully wrangler, Danielle Pike.


First shows of 2018

The Newfoundland (All Breed) Kennel Club hosted the first shows of 2018 on April 14th/15th here in St. John’s, with 1 show each day under judges Bill and Judy Byrne.

Cooper earned a Group 2nd and a Group 3rd in a lovely lineup of working dogs, presented to perfection by Danielle Pike.
