UKC CH UNJ AGl Vonlin’s Bronze Stardust RA CD NA NAP NJP NJ-R TDI CGC “Halle” got two legs towards her URO1 Rally title. Her best score was 99 points out of 100, just missing the ribbons. (May it be noted that on some of those days they had over 200 dogs entered in rally.) Halle did one Splash at the Premier and she jumped 7 feet and added more points towards her Ultimate Air Championship title. She won Best of Breed on Sunday. BTW Halle is almost 10 years old. The judge could not believe it! At the Specialty she won best adult female. So proud of my ageless Kooiker.

INT/UKC CH Ambermoon Christmas Star RN BN NAJ CD CGC “Josie” was also at the show. Due to her being in season and being bred to Sender during the same time, Josie couldn’t compete in any performance events. She did go Reserve Champion on Friday and placed 4th in the adult Specialty class.
