Notice anything different? Besides the ribbons and location… Does she look more proud?? She should, she is now an AKC Champion… So from now on she prefers to be referred to as CH Dynata’s Bound to Inspire JH . But you don’t have to listen to her, you can still call her Luna, Lunatic, or Looney tune. No but really, Luna finally did it, she finished her championship this weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday she took Winners Bitch for 2 points each day to finish her championship with 1 point to spare. Can we get a Whoooooooooo.
I was not able to attend the shows, so Luna rode up with her uncle Jack (seen above). Saturday’s judge was Canadian which tickled me that they liked her since I have family up in Canada. Sunday, Luna was put through the Costa Rica rigors with front and rear end checks as well as the usual movement requests around the ring. I was thrilled a foreign judge took a liking to my little girl too. I have nothing against the usual judges of the area, it’s just nice to see how she stands up to foreign opinions.
Jack also pulled out some big wins on Sunday, going Winners Dog then Best of Breed followed by a 4th place placement in group!!! Way to represent Dynata Family! Thanks to Callie and Andrew for hosting Luna this weekend and spending hours on the road, I’m glad she behaved for you. Congrats on your boy’s wins Sunday! Thanks to all my friends and family and especially the Dynata family for all of your support as we worked towards this CH it really was great to have so many in her corner. And thanks to the handlers who have helped in her journey as well, Patty, Barbara and Melissa to name a few. It was a team effort
As soon as the official show photo comes in I will share it with you all. I hope everyone has a great week
Congratulations! I know how hard it can be to get that CH. 🙂 Way to go, Luna! 🙂
Congratulations to Looney Luna… and you of course, from the Great White North.
I recently just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! I love Viszlas and would maybe like to own one someday. I’m also interested in a career involving training, showing and breeding dogs. I was just curious as to how you got involved in showing?
Awww thanks, sounds like the perfect blog for you to stumble upon. Please please hang around some vizslas and talk to several responsible breeders before you make a final decision. They are a very special breed of dog. Where are you located? I got into showing with my own dog. I was the handler and teacher of Luna from her first puppy class through her first year and a half or so… then I gave it up to my breeder as I am too competitive to not get anyway that often. If you get a purebred there is now an Amateur Owner Handler class which helps. Clubs often will have handling classes to learn at, as well as drop in classes too which I also did with Luna as a puppy. Maybe that’s the best place to start, look around at some dog/kennel clubs around you and speak with them. Good luck! Let me know if you have any other questions.
Wow, you’ve been busy this summer! No wonder we haven’t heard from you that often. But what a great result! Well done, Luna, you’ve always been a champion anyway, only now it’s official. I like the look of those ribbons 🙂
You’ve got all the reasons to be a very proud mum, Anna!
CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS!!!!! XOXOXOXO I saw that she won on Saturday, but didn’t realize she was going at it again the following day. You have both worked SO hard. I can’t wait to tell Elizabeth. Again, Congratulations!!!!!!!!
Congratulations! : ) And love the portrait.
Thanks! it feels good to have this chapter basically closed…
