Enchante's Dreamboat Annie "Annie" (above left and below right)owned by Margot Baron and handled by her daughter Morgan took reserve. The judge on Sunday was Ms. Leslie A Earl. "Windy" was entered in team obedience with her owner/handler Kath Williams.

"I am proud to say that Gia now has 2 points acquired at her debut weekend. I have lots of pictures of her and of her and Annie. What a funny coincidence that Gia and Annie have the same exact birth date, December 28, 08. I feel an addiction to shows coming on" said Angela Trimm.

"Ranger was great on Saturday, he looked fantastic and he behaved" said Judy Meggitt. Pam Sage showed him and he got one point.

Chief is out of Ch Higgins Bohemia Elite x Ch Cherron U Wanna Dance and bred by Jeanne Lorang and Liz Kenitz.
