turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise! Her original owner only
wanted Kiele as a companion, but agreed to let us show her.
In August 2000, she earned her first point taking Best of Breed out
of the classes and out of coat! From there she was undefeated at
every show she was entered in until that January, day she won Best
of Breed from the classes for the major, over several Top 10 ranked
specials and earned her Championship!
This was an
exciting and emotional win for all of us! The Working Group that
evening was televised by Animal Planet, and we were excited to be
recognized! The friendship and support that was given to us that
day was an incredible inspiration, and we thank all of you!
The next day after being moved up to champion status, Kiele
again defeated all, and earned Best of Breed. We were pleased and
excited to make the cut of only 6 in a huge Working Group, at our
largest and most prestigious show of the year. For the future we are
considering specialing Kiele. We feel that she is superior
in movement and type, and should give all breed dogs a run for their
A special Thank You to our friend
Cindy Keen for the beautiful
photograph of Kiele in the Group photo.
