Austin finished her UKC Championship in short order, and she is PennHIP'd and eye-checked clear.
She was shown at that last show with "holes" in her ruff, which were made by her brother, Tex...[who tried to yank her through the chain link when she was in heat!] It looked like my grand-daughter's hair after she got scissors for her 3rd birthday! It got much worse before we got wise to the culprit, and moved her next to her father, but the missing coat didn't hold her back!
Oh yeah, about that coat....Austin has a coat to die for...when the sun hits it...it sparkles like it's diamond dusted.
Austin was shown on a limited basis in 2003. In October of that year she suffered an illness that curtailed her show career for several months. She finished up '03 with 11 points and both majors, but had to take a lengthy break from the ring.
We brought her back out to TWO shows in 2004. The first, a small show close to home, where she added one more point....the last show, in July where she finshed with a third major, with an entry that was one bitch shy of a 5 pointer.
4 point major, & reserve to 4 pointer-Owensboro, KY-8/03
3 point major, & reserve to 3 pointer-Columbus, IN-9/03
4 point major to finish-Owensboro, KY-9/04
And then there is that fluid movement....what a joy to watch Austin in full stride. Austin is currently working on her UKC Grand Championship, after having taken some time off for maternity leave.
