It has been a busy dog show year. We were able to accomplish so much. We have two new champions here at BlackRidge. Nelli obtained her Championship title at the Black Foot dog show in June and has almost finished her Grand Championship title as well. She needs to beat 2 more champions of record and then we will have our 1st Grand Champion. We are so excited about this accomplishment and we adore Nelli. Hoping to accomplish this when we start up our dog show season in March. Nelli will also try something new this summer and we hope to get a Nelli litter. Check our nursery page for updates.
Gator finally got his final major at the New Mexico Sporting Dog specialty by going Winners dog and Best of Winners for a 5-point major. He needs to finish one final clearance and then we will have him available at stud here at BlackRidge. I am so happy with this boy. I may go out of my comfort zone and try doing hunt tests with him. He has such a drive to retrieve. He also only needs 1 more jump to finish his dock diving title. We will also work on his Grand Champion title as well. So many goals and lots of time to hopefully do it all!
Bash had a stellar show season and by the age of 1 year old he only needs 2 majors to finish his championship. Those are the goals for Bash this next year.
Bonnie loves being a show dog and has 4 points towards her championship. She will be fun to get back in the ring this Spring. Hoping to do good things when we go to Arizona for 7 shows in 5 days. We love the Heart of the Desert Classic dog show in Phoenix. We get to show our dogs and see our friends. Win Win!
Finally, we are excited to announce 2 Litters this upcoming spring/summer. It will have been almost 2 years since our last litter so we are thrilled to have puppies once again. See our nursery page for official announcements! One litter will be all black and one will be black and yellow.
