11/12/2016 - DeJa is pictured here at 10 1/2 months of age winning Best of Breed & Best of Winners from the 9-12 Month Puppy class for her 4th major to finish her championship! Thank you to Judge Lobb from Canada who at picture time told me that she is lovely moving, clean coming and going and he loves her length of loin. It sure was a great way to finish her title in style!
10/08/2016 - DeJa is pictured here winning Best of Breed over three specials from the 9-12 month class after being off the show circuit for over 7 weeks! She also made the cut in a super tough Working Group. The following day she won Best of Winners. This left DeJa needing two single points to finish her championship.
8/22/2016 - DeJa is pictured here at just 5 days shy of 8 months old winning Best Of Winners for her THIRD major in her third state (WI, MN, and now KANSAS!) proving what a great girl she is no matter what part of the country she competes in! Even half out of coat and going through a growth spurt she snagged another big win from the 6-9 Month Puppy class under HIGHLY Respected Judge Ms. Jan Paulk. Judge Paulk was so impressed with her and asked immediately if she was almost finished with her championship. She also said she was "so easy to find" in the ring and, "It was a very easy choice for me." THANK YOU, Judge! She even asked we send her copy of this win! This is the very first time I had a judge ask that of any dog I have ever shown. What a compliment! It is on its way, Ms. Paulk!
Additionally, during this 4-day weekend at the Siberian Husky Club of Greater Kansas Specialties, DeJa also won Reserve to a 4 point major (supported entry), Best Puppy in Sweeps under breeder judge Angie Luna, BOS in Puppy Sweeps under Breeder Judge Ms. Karen J Hynek, and Best Puppy In Specialty under Breeder Judge Mr. Vincent Buoniello!
7/29/2016 - Here is DeJa pictured at 7 months 5 days old winning Best of Winners for her second major under breeder Judge Mr. Vincent Chianese at the Waukesha KC Dog show. This was a very exciting win for us. Mr. Chianese also told all of us as we waited for our ribbons, that DeJa was very close to beating all the champions (6 total champions) for Best of Breed! We knew what we thought of DeJa's structure, movement & breed type, but to have a breeder judge tell us how lovely she is and to almost beat the entire entry of Siberians (18 total) was just mind blowing! It was okay with us though, as he had given our very own Champion boy Ryder, Best of Breed that day for another 4pt major towards his Grand Champion title!
6/18/2016 - DeJa is pictured winning WB/BOW for her very first major under Judge Majorie Martorella, at the tender age of 6 months 2 days old! Two days prior she won Reserve to the major which was her very first AKC show! She had some TOUGH competition against her, not only for her to take Winners Bitch for the major, but also just in her puppy class! We are just so thrilled with our bred by girl! Looks, structure, movement AND ATTITUDE! That is our DeJa "WooWoo!"
Here is DeJa winning Reserve Best Puppy in Show at the TCOTC UKC show under Mrs. Heidi Scheff, handled by breeder-owner Charity Reger. This was her very first time at a dog show and we entered her to just get her "paws" wet so she was ready to show in AKC events. So proud of our baby "WooWoo!"
What can I say? WE LOVE DeJa and LOVE this picture of her learning how to become a show dog at the tender age of 11 weeks old! Let's all just say it.... AWWWW!
