Good Morning Wanda,
Am writing to give you joyous news on Brianna & Harley. The Winona County 4-H dog show was yesterday. All Grand Champion ribbons in the dog project so far. Agility will follow in about two weeks.
Results as follows:
Beginner Obedience: 193 out of 200, Grand Champion.
Beginner Rally: 98 out of 100, Grand Champion.
Junior Open Showmanship: Grand Champion. (Answered all questions correctly)
Am so proud of this team. Brianna works hard & Harley is loving every minute of it. He can be a challenge sometimes, but for a 10 year old Brianna handles him well. He adores her, you can see it when they are working or playing. Can’t wait to see how agility goes. Will keep you informed.
Thanks again for this lovely boy.

BRIANNA AND HARLEY WON A STATE FAIR TRIP
Brianna & Harley did an amazing job in three venues – showmanship, rally & obedience.
Her first class was Rally. She & Harley got 96 out of 100. Points off for tight leash, otherwise perfect, did the course very well. SO proud of their performance. Received a BLUE, only 2 points away from the grand champion placing in a class of 19.
Second class was the foundation obedience class. Another great performance for such a young team. Harley got distracted by all the noise, other dogs & movements in the building. Brianna regained her & Harley’s composure & completed the exercises well. She again received a BLUE in the upper third of a class of 21.
The afternoon was her Novice showmanship class. They divided the group in half. Team Harley made the first cut, The judge gave them a workout. First the down & back, then questions re: your dog. Then the “L” pattern, some more questions and finally a “triangle pattern” with more questions. Brianna & Harley did AWESOME. Harley handled well & Brianna knew the answers to the questions. Again so proud of Team Harley. Now off to the staging to receive the placings. Watch all the kids get ribbons starting from the bottom up. Got down to a little boy with a sheltie, another girl with a sheltie & Team Harley. Our hearts were all fluttering. Award of Excellent to the other little girl, Reserve Champion to the little boy & GRAND CHAMPION to Team Harley. She was so excited, got her ribbon & plaque & proceeded to hug Harley. Mom had tears! I am so proud of their performance & how well they did. Practice paid off.
Harley was admired by many spectators. Many stated how pretty he was & his beautiful temperament and calmness. Several people asked about his focused attention on Brianna & couldn’t believe how old he was. He even fell asleep on the bleachers while waiting for their ribbon placement. They asked where we got him & if you raised many dogs. Gave them your info & Kennel name. You would of been proud of this little boy.
Thanks again for breeding such an amazing boy. Brianna is now preparing for Junior Showmanship in AKC. Has been attending handling classes with the hope of starting at the Coulee show in November. We will see if they are ready for that ring.
Thanks again for such a wonderful boy that Brianna & Kyleigh adore. (Mom & Dad like him also just don’t always like to admit it!). Hope to see you soon at another show.
HARLEY IS A BAILEY / JACK OFFSPRING.
Harley just turned 1 year old September 24th!!!!
