The Scarborough Kennel Club marked the debut of another of our Pearl Jam puppies - Hunter - into the show ring. This was his first show ever and were we ever impressed with how he looked and showed.
On Saturday, March 11, Hunter went Winner's Dog and Best of Winners over his sister for his first point. On Sunday, March 12, he did it again to take his second point!
Hunter and Vedder were both entered to try and earn their Canine Good Neighbour designation, and they were so wonderfully behaved. Both puppies earned their Canine Good Neighbour designations on their first try, meaning they both earned their first title on the same day.
These puppies are maturing beautifully, and I look forward to continuing their show careers in 2017.

The start of March brought the debut into the regular show ring for our girl Vedder (Wynder's Beneath the Waves). She competed for the first time for points towards her Canadian Championship.
On Saturday, March 4th, Vedder showed as a Junior Puppy (6-9 month old class), and she won her class. She then defeated a Senior Puppy (9-12 month old class) to win Winner's Bitch for her first 2 points (and major). She then went into the Breed ring to compete against the Winner's Dog and the 2 specials (one male and one female). Vedder won Best of Winners (defeating the Winner's Dog), as well as Best Puppy in Breed, and Best Breeder-Owner handled in breed.
On Sunday, March 5th, Vedder made it back-to-back, for her second 2 points and major, and now sits at 4 points towards her championship! We are so looking forward to the future with this beautiful girl.
