Show updates

I have lots of show updates to post so bear with me and the multitude of photos that will accompany this post.

First off I am very pleased to announce Braebrook Kennels first Doberman American Champion. There have been a couple of German Shorthaired Pointer Am Ch's in the past but Pony has become the first Doberman. She is now Am/Can/Int Ch Holmrun's Chulo Pony Braebrook from the Dirk x London litter. She was shown to all her titles by owner Michelle Rowton which makes her finishing all the sweeter. She also added three major selects towards her Am Grand Champion title as a move up special. Nice work you two, we are SO proud!

Also from the Dirk x London litter Braebrook's Thakoon Holmrun "Thakoon" picked up two more points towards his championship putting him at seven. Thakoon is owner handled by Meghan Delmar.

The Freddy x Phoebe kids have just started hitting the show ring and four are already pointed towards their championships.

Starting with Braebrook's Viognier "Phoenix (previously Nina)" owned by Amber Olson (co owned by Braebrook) who in her first weekend out picked up six points, two best puppy in groups and a best puppy in show. A very promising start to this young lady's show career.

Braebrook's Bristol Cream "Bristol" picked up four points towards her championship. I don't have an updated show photo of her but this is a sweet picture of her and junior handler Kianna. Bristol is owned and handled by Caitlin Rathburn and co owned by Braebrook.

Braebrook's Cabernet Sauvignon "Savvy" picked up the first point towards her championship handled by owner Lyndsay Ferguson.

And last but definitely not least Braebrook's Pinot Noir "Peri" picked up three points towards her championship and was reserve winners bitch and best puppy in specialty at the Doberman Pinscher Club of Canada National Specialty. Peri is owned by Judy Bohnert of Equinox Kennels.

This litter only just turned eight months of age and their future is looking very bright.

A huge thank you to all the great owners of these Braebrook dogs, you are doing an outstanding job and you make me so proud. :)

Spartan x Enya puppy update

I'm very happy to report that Spartan, who is the sire of our last litter picked up his first Best in Show at the Vernon and District Kennel Club show last weekend making him BIS/BISS/BPIS Am/Can Ch Supernova's Never Surrender, so happy for owners Catherine and Danica.

Speaking of our last litter, most have gone to their new homes now, with pink collar going next weekend. Carri (red collar) who we are keeping is quite happy to have her sister here to play with and they have been dubbed the gruesome twosome...into everything. ;)

Play buddies..

I'm very happy with this litter overall, great temperaments, very bold and outgoing, and I'm very pleased with their structure.
