2015 News

UPDATED FEBRUARY 2015

I am going to start out with two dogs who are not in competition but their accomplishments are so important to me.  I know there are many other unsung heroes out there, but I do not have video or photos to share – or may not even know about them.  Sioux’s owner has been so wonderful about sharing video of her, and she is so much an example of exactly what I am breeding for  (which I believe is why they can excel at so many other things including being an amazing companion).  Thanks, Matthew Brasher for sharing Sioux’s talent with so many via youtube.  I am only posting one link here but  you can go to many other videos of her from this one or just Google Slash V Sioux.  Ranch dog DELUXE if there were such a title.

ATCH IV SLASH V TOO HOT TO HANDLE,  MAD, TM-Bronze “Torch”
(Slash V Shining Tide x Slash V Star Charmer)
Owned by Mike and Holly Press and handled by Mike
NATIONAL FINALS QUALIFIER

In Finals Torch placed 10th in Gambles and 9th in Regular with Q’s

Probably Torch’s greatest accomplishment at this Nationals was his offspring (not bred by Slash V)
His son,”Shiver” ATCH III H&M’s Extreme Anticipation, MaD, TM was a FINALS QUALIFIER and placed
6th Overall in Finals.
He had three first place wins in the Nationals trial.
Torch’s daughter, “Vandal” had three first places in the Nationals trial in Elite
and this was her first time to compete in Elite.

I love recognizing the Juniors so maybe best of all was Torch’s son, ATCH IV H& M’s Coppa and the young lady who owns and loves him, Juliane Bach.  This pair took first place in all six classes at Nationals!
