BIS Silene!

“Silene” BIS BISS NOHSBIS GCHS. Isaby de Terra-Blue TCQ AOE STDsd got a Best in Show over the weekend. In the 10 years that the breed has been in AKC she is only the 2nd dog in her breed to do this, and is the first female.

… And it would not have been possible without a whole village of people. First, Jennie Williams, her co-breeder, who helped me with the litter she was from 6 years ago when my life was going through a lot of changes. Then “Silene’s” owner and my good friend David Clayton who has made this adventure possible, and who finished her championship, showed her to Best of Breed at the National Specialty and to an owner handled Best in Show, as well as to her herding titles. And last but not least Brendan Coleman who has been handling her to all her recent wins, which in addition to her recent Best in Show, has also taken her to being the #1 Pyrenean Shepherd in the country.

(“Silene” is CH. Korto de la Tuile au Loup x CH. Arbouse de l’Oustaou de Padel TCQ HOF)

BIS GCH. Isaby de Terra-Blue

Of all the things that “Silene” did at our National Specialty: BOB and Best Expression, the thing that I will cherish most is the comment on her Merit Evaluation done the next day..

She “is an honor to her race”.

No win could mean more to me than that.
