Oscar is now a CKC Grand Champion


Last but definitely not least, to wrap up our thrilling dog show weekend in Sudbury at the Nickel District Kennel Club, Oscar (Ch Barbevoix Oscar de Northrock CGN) earned the final points needed for his Grand Champion title.  Entered in the last show of the weekend and handled by Tracy Dineley, Oscar went Best of Breed under judge Branislav Rajic from Slovenia. 

Oscar is co-owned with Nellemarie Hyde and I wish to extend my congratulations to Oscar's adoring and supportive family, and to his breeder Catherine Verge. We are all absolutely delighted with the success this young Barbet has had and are grateful to the judges who have recognized his quality and awarded Oscar in the show ring.

Not to be outdone by her sister and half brother, Ella also completed the requirements for her championship title in Sudbury this past weekend.

Piloted to her win by Tracy Dineley, Ella impressed Judge James Osborne and in addition to giving her Best of Breed she also made the cut in the Sporting Group under him.  We could not be more pleased that this sweet pup has her title.  Much gratitude to her family and co-owners, Sara and Brian Hollander who love and adore their silly girl.

Northrock Barbets had a successful weekend showing dogs at the Nickel District Kennel Club in Sudbury.  Charlie came back out this year to finish his Championship going Best of Breed under Barbet Breeder-Judge, Doug Windsor, on Saturday April 6th.  We are thankful to the judges for recognizing his nice qualities and to Tracy Dineley for her expert handling. Congratulations to Charlie's wonderful family and co-owners, Andrea and Carlo on their new Champion. My heartfelt appreciation to them for letting me borrow their boy to take him to the show.  

Charlie is the third puppy from our Billy x Lexi litter to earn his Championship.  We share in this celebration with Billy's breeder Anne Plomp and his owner Olav van Schie for helping to make this special breeding with imported frozen semen possible.
