Cassie Joins our Breeding Program!

CassieKars_01We would like to officially announce that Cassie Acostar’s London Lejay Cassis will be part of our breeding program in the future. She turned two on October 15th and her hip and elbow x-rays were submitted to OFA for evaluation. The results have arrived and her hip grade is EXCELLENT and her elbows are normal. She was certified clear by CERF and is genetically normal for all the other tests for this breed. She has a wonderfully outgoing personality and we eagerly anticipate the new chapter in her life as a mother.

A new Champion for Acostar!

CaptainCKCCK_02Despite the thick fog and black ice Captain Elkrun’s Make It So At Acostar and Lily made it up to Red Deer for the Red Deer and District Kennel Club shows on Saturday and Sunday. Captain won Best of Winners and Best of Breed for two points each day which was more than enough to finish his CKC Championship.  Lily had fun for her first time ever in the ring but she is going to need lots more practice. As usual huge thanks go to Tammy Sawatzky and her team for Captain’s excellent handling and to Natasha Humeston for her beautiful grooming job. Captain will now get to have a shorter hair cut and some play time before he heads down to the US to start showing there in the new year.
