Butler AKC Trial & Alkemi Puppy Reunion

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

L-R Nina (Can CH MACH Vastgota Nina Ricci), Alice (Alkemi Clear Air Turbulence LT), Zhora (MACH4 Alkemi Blade Runner LS), Cricket (Alkemi Braveheart ST), Riley (Alkemi Aston Martin LS), Colby (Alkemi Batman LS). Nina is the mother of everyone except Alice, and Alice’s mother is Zhora. Zhora, Cricket and Colby are littermates from the B litter.

We had a mini Alkemi puppy reunion this weekend, complete with cake:

Judge Oksana Syrkin designed some fun, tricky courses. Nina had a pancreatitis flare-up unfortunately, so even though she double Q’d on Saturday she was very slow and wasn’t right and I ended up leaving the trial early Sunday morning to take her home because she really wasn’t feeling well at all.

Zhora tripled Friday (her first TQ!) and doubled Saturday (with a gift on an R on Friday), Riley earned his OAJ title, Colby earned an Excellent Standard leg and Cricket earned her very first AKC Q’s! Cricket is a Nina for sure.

It was awesome to see my puppies again and I am so grateful to Jennifer, Nichole and Chris for coming, and to Zap as always for her huge help with pictures and video!
