Herding News from Eastern Washington

Story by Gail Oneal. Nightwind's Double Dog Dare Ewe "Dara" got her PT at the Labor Day Trials here in Spokane under judges Bob Ewing and Dave Viklund. Although she started with a "flair", she did a great job with controlled runs on both days.

Radieux's And The Winner Is HSAs "Emmy" got 2 legs of her intermediate title on A course sheep with second and fourth places in a class of six. She is a bit intense-and it showed the second day when I called time 30 seconds after the run started!! She forgot I was on the planet so we just called it a day and watched the other runs. On to the specialty!

New Canadian Champion

submitted by Romy Wood ~ Good news! Rio, “Ne Orageux Assiniboine Admirer” finished his Canadian Championship with a Second in Group placing at the West Kootenay Kennel Club show in Castlegar, August 22! He won the Group at that show two years ago.
We also went to the Cranbrook Kennel Club show the following weekend, but no luck there. Most everywhere we go Rio is the only Briard. The Cranbrook show is at a new venue, beautiful mountain views and lots of space for camping. Maybe we could talk some members from the Spokane and area region into coming over the border next year?
Warm greetings from the East Kootenays!!!
