The first half of 2018 has seen two new Champions titled to Acostar dogs!

Acostar’s Home Sweet Home “Skyy”

First to achieve her CH title is Acostar’s Home Sweet Home “Skyy”. She accomplished this in just 3 weekends of showing. Her first weekend out at the Champlain Dog Club shows, she won a Winners Bitch/Best of Opposite, Best of Winners/ Best of Breed and two Winners Bitch/ Best of Winners.

Her second weekend, at Club Canin Rive-Sud de Montreal Skyy won three Winners Bitch and on Best of Breed over a special.

And in her final weekend showing at the Arnprior Canine Association shows, she got her last points from winning Winners Bitch 3 times! We are most grateful to Linda Thompson and Joe Panaro for their expert handling, grooming and assistance and care.

Here are some photos of Skyy winning Best of Breed and Winners Bitch:

Acostar’s Bobcaygeon “Hey Jude”

Although we are super happy with Skyy and her accomplishments, the real rock star this spring was Acostars Bobcaygeon “Hey Jude”. He started showing as a baby puppy and brought home a Best Baby Puppy in Group from his very first show and it just went up from there!

To list all of his wins will make this long update even longer, so here’s a summary:

Hey Jude won 16 Best of Breeds (for some of these he was the only dog), two Best Puppies in Group, one adult Group 3rd, three adult Group 4ths, and — his crowning achievement — a Best Puppy In Show! All of this was achieved before the age of 10 months!!

Here are some photos of Jude:

Jude’s first job in life, however, is to be an outstanding assistance dog to his wonderful owner Mrs. Grace McDonald, so he is going to take a break from showing and possibly return when he is older.

Hey Jude is the first Champion puppy from Acostar’s Newfie Calibogus “Cali” and the second from Acostar Oshkosh Bigosh Tanaki “Carter” and we couldn’t be prouder of this completely home bred boy.

Very many thanks go to Carolyne Cybulsky for her expert handling and impeccable grooming of Jude and to Grace and Wayne for being his caregivers, taxi drivers and basically his world.
