Braebrook's Strike Your Fawn-cy

The next update from the Island circuit of shows features beautiful Bo who just turned a year old in June. He is from our rainbow litter (it featured all four allowable colours - black, red, fawn and blue) sired by Ch Braebrook's Black Russian and out of Ch Modadobe Sunset Dreaming. Bo was the first one born and was definitely a surprise!
Bo was shown only three days of the circuit where it started in Campbell River. He had two points going into the weekend and came out with seven in total. He even had a nice breed win over the special and went on to make the cut in the working group. Fawns are not the norm and judges aren't quite sure what to do with him in the ring. One judge even went immediately to check his rule book before examining him. He is a very nice young dog though and that shines through.

I love his unique colouring and had many people, both judges, exhibitors and spectators alike approach me to touch him and talk about him. It's a good thing he is such a social butterfly as between all the wieners and the petting he thought it was a pretty darn good weekend. His temperament makes him a wonderful ambassador for the breed. His owner Stacy has done a great job with him.

Bo has a wonderfully easy, open and balanced gait. He moves freely and cleanly and holds a beautiful topline on the move. Can you tell I'm excited about him?

I'm already looking forward to the next time we get back in the ring for those last three points needed to complete his championship.

Stay tuned for the next blog post coming up featuring the handsome Rancher!
