Canarian Bull Kennel hosts the annual DCCA Rocky Mountain Regional which consists of two shows: Specialty and Championship. Each show has a different judge so as to provide different opinions on each dog and allow the few top dogs to earn those hard earned champion points. I say hard earned since there’s only been one club champion and that’s Envy, Beirra’s grandmother.
The environment was relaxed but the 90 degree heat and blazing sun took a toll on us all. About 20 dogs entered, with almost half of that in the puppy class but competition was intense as some of the top Presas in the country came to show what they had.
The judge for the Regional Specialty show was DCCA President Jason Baum from Las Islas de Doramas Kennel in Houston Texas. We did very well in this show as Diesel de Canarian Bull won Best in Show and his puppies followed suit. Thor rated very good ( the highest rating for a puppy), as did his littermates Airmid and Brighid. Airmid won first place in her class with Brighid in 2nd.
Windy City Beirra, whose mother we sent to Windy City Presas, received her first championship point, taking female CAC (best female non-champion) at one year old over steep competition from adult females. Juno de Canarian Bull (off Dyno) won best female puppy against puppies almost twice her age.
Our import adult female Marbella Guerrero de las Montanas received RCAC and her pup Maeve was 2nd in her class.
The Regional Championship was judged by DCCA Treasurer Matt Spanton of Hill Country Kennels in Austin, TX.
Our puppies did even better in this show as Thor won Best Male Puppy and his littermates, Airmid and Brighid were 1st and 2nd in their classes respectively. Juno won Best Puppy in this show, being our star puppy in both shows and increasing our already high hopes for her future.
Macha and Beirra each came in 2nd in their classes and Diesel was the male RCAC. Rosemerta beat her littermate Maeve out this time to take 2nd place in their class, behind Juno and above Cailleach.
Next up is the Southwest Regionals in Texas and we not only hope to make it but win it all.
