Once again, Acostar has two new Champions and Nelly has now joined our breeding program.
Acostar’s Summer Lime Cocktail “Gimlet” achieved her CKC Champion title at the Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Dog Association shows. She won two Best of winners and 6 Winners ribbons for the 10 required points. She did not enjoy the show ring much and was not happy to be handled by anyone other than me so I handled her for all but 2 of her points. Gimlet is retired from showing in conformation and is spending her time being the sweet, funny, loving clown of the household. She is the daughter of Tia and a wonderful male named Drifter “Timber Oaks Drift Diver”.
Acostar’s Mint Julep “Julep” has so far had an outstanding time in the conformation show ring. She just turned 6 months old on June 11th 2019 and the first show she attended was the Kars Dog Club show the weekend of July 19. Since then, with very limited showing, she has achieved her CKC Championship, won 8 Best Puppy in Groups, one Group 3rd and a Best Puppy in Show! The Best Puppy in Show was awarded at the Sudbury and District Kennel Club show the weekend of September 13th. This is an incredible accomplishment in under 2 months of showing. I thank Judge Vickie Umpleby for the honour of BPIS and all the other judges who have recognized our girl. Julep is currently the #1 PWD puppy in Canada. A special thank you to Linda Thompson who has expertly handled her and Joe Panaro who helped behind the scenes. I would like to thank Sydney Robinson for her excellent grooming of all the Acostar dogs.
Last but not least, Acostar Whoa Nelly Commocean “Nelly” turned 2 years old in late June and has since completed all of her health testing and is genetically normal for everything and received a grade of GOOD on her hips. She has a wonderful sweet, calm, and loving temperament that we hope she will pass on to her future puppies.
