Lola....A real winner:)

Well, all I can say is WOW!! In all my years I have never won at a Specialty, but on Sunday, Oct 5th or home bred girl "Belaire's Little Bit Country" (AM/Can CH Tar-ri Kylenes Country Pride VCX ex MacNel's Olympic Gold), went Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a 5pt major Specialty win. When Cadie called me, my heart just stopped and I was in shock. Not shock cause I did not feel she could it, but the fact that is was never done before was just WONDERFUL!!!! I can remember Cadie telling me she was a Specials bitch and to be honest I was not sure but she was so right. The judge was Jo Virden who I was told after I entered her was an AOAC breeder and that is what she would pick, well I guess not. She told Cadie she loved her from the moment she walked in the ring. She is beautiful and so feminine. She will be coming home now for a coat change, but will be out in the early spring. I can not ever thank Cadie Pruss of Acadia Shelties enough for all she has done for the Belaire dogs. She is a wonderful handler and a great friend!!!

I am posting my favorite two pictures. Both are very different.
