What a great weekend for "Benny" SnoValley High Flyer by GCH Blu Ridge Make Way “Alex” x Ch Belfair SnoValley Dream On “Stefanie” at the Seattle Kennel Club All Breed Show. Benny started the day on Saturday going Best of Variety in the breed ring under Judge David Bolus. Then he headed over to the Agility ring where he placed First and qualified for his Open Fast title under Judge Susan Leitner. And he finished off the day in grand style going Herding Group 3 under Judge P Levi Marsman; piloted to this very special win by Junior Handler Extraordinaire Madison Thompson!

On Sunday Benny placed First and earned another
Q in Novice Jumpers under Judge Susan Leitner. Benny is still a
youngster and has only gotten started in competing in agility; we're
very excited about his zeal and drive and expect some high flying down
the road for this fuzzy boy! We're very proud of Benny and his main
trainer and buddy Gary Webster! Benny is doing the things he's doing
today because of the tireless efforts of Gary and the love and support
of his human "Mom" Heidi! Thank you to the Websters for helping Benny to
Melody, SnoValley Tell Me All About It debuted at her first show at
our Collie Club Specialties the end of February. She wasn't
entered all weekend but when she was she won her competitive class each
day and went Mjr RWB under the esteemed Judge John Buddie and Judge Erin
Blaisure. She is our Billy daughter out of our Alex daughter,
Heather SnoValley What Dreams Are Made Of.
We were honored to have "Billy" Ch Blu Ridge State of Mind with us
from September 2016 until September 2017. We're delighted with the
beautiful pups he produced bred to several of our girls! Thank you
to Joan Johnson for entrusting us with your beautiful sweet boy!
While I was recuperating from foot surgery Fall of 2017 Nancy took "Ashton" Caublestone Tales
Of SnoValley, down to California. During his visit he went Winners Dog
under Judge Lynn Butler. Ashton is owned by Terry and I and Nancy
Mathes. Ashton was bred by Diane Cauble.
"Gracie" GCH SnoValley Style & Grace PT TD CCA- VA, came from
Shira's first litter. She is one of three Champions and the second
GCH from that litter and she is Shira's first CCA-Versatility recipient!
The most amazing part of this story is Gracie left as a companion pup,
but as she grew into a very special girl Jim & Janis made her available
to be shown. But it didn't stop there, Janis and Jim who had just
retired about the time they brought their cherished girl home, decided
to give herding a try and once she earned her PT title, then they moved
onto tracking. And they've had to overcome challenges and hurdles
along the way as we all often do; things that would cause many to give
up. Gracie recently earned her TD and now they are preparing for
her TDX. Jim hopes to get into search and rescue with their
treasured girl in the future. We're so proud of the "Gracie" team,
Janis and Jim! Who I should also mention have done all of her
herding and tracking training and handling!
"Truman" CH SnoValley Belfair Barely Harry Too CGC CGCA HIC is co-owned and loved by Becky and David Moe. Truman recently became a Champion with Becky on the other end of the lead! We are so proud of Becky who decided to step into the ring to get the last points on Truman, since he showed the best for her! This win was particularly exciting because Becky is new to handling. Truman is a Champion today because of Becky's efforts! Truman has just started in agility and is loving it!
Another shot of Truman.
Brodie GCH SnoValley Pizazz! HIC was the first pup from Shira's first litter to finish and go onto his Grand Championship! We'd like to thank his human "Mom" Judy for the part she played in that! She's really helped Brodie to sparkle! Brodie is owned and loved by Judy Byrd.
"Heather" SnoValley What Dreams Are Made Of
That's little "Heather" SnoValley What Dreams
This image was a portrait I did when the "Dreams Come True" pups were 3 days old (no Photoshopping of the pups in the box). The lower row is of each of those pups shot at 8 weeks which I did Photoshop under each of their 3 day old image so you can see what that 3 day old face grows into in just a matter of weeks! This was a very special litter and the first litter we used our kennel name with.

BN RE CGCU, These puppies have gone on to do some pretty amazing things with the help of their amazing Families and we thought you might enjoy hearing about some of those pups.
"Ripley" CH Belfair Believe It Or Not! BN RE CGCU and his owner and companion Gloria, have accomplished a lot together! Ripley has quite a repertoire of tricks too!
"Stefanie" CH Belfair SnoValley Dream On. In addition to being a wonderful Collie girl, Stefanie has done some beautiful producing for both Belfair and us at SnoValley! She has gone to live with her forever Family where she is adored!
"D'Argo" SnoValley Rainybank Luxan Warrior RN HT NF CA CGCA... and his buddy Mike Vorkapich are quite a team!
So there is a 'story' with the spreadsheet above; as you can imagine. I asked Mike to send an update on D'Argo's titles and to please give me an idea what they are for. I knew I wouldn't know many of them as he competes in may different venues...the above is what I got back! Mike and D'Argo are always on the go and we're so proud of them for all they've accomplished together!
Back in September Mike and D'Argo were on our local television station King 5 News, Seattle, WA, representing the Rainier Agility Team. The station was having a dog-themed day on their morning talk show, New Day Northwest. Mike spoke specifically about how to form strong bonds with your dog through doing agility and did a fantastic job! (Click here to view the video)
