I am tickled to announce that Arie (GCH CH Aardehond Make Me Smile) is #5 in the January All-Breed Points ranking by Canine Chronicle for Border Terriers. Link here
The rankings, of course, fluctuate each month, depending on placements and number of shows each dog attends. But Arie's #5 ranking puts a smile on my face and brightens up the dreary Ohio winter days for sure :-) !
Arie and Kathy Caton-Musto traveled to Erie PA over the weekend of January 26 and 27 for a show along the lake. I'm proud to say that Arie ended up placing with a Group 4 in the Terrier Group on both Saturday and Sunday, earning himself 66 'all breed' points to start 2019!
Arie attended the Novi MI 4-day cluster January 17 through 20, 2019 and ended up going Select Dog three of the four days.
Because of the number of dogs entered, earning Select Dog gave him three 5-point major GCH wins which brings his total number of Grand Championship points earned to 56 - so he is now officially over halfway to the 100 points needed for a Grand Championship Bronze designation.
This boy continues to amaze me. He earned his Championship by the time he was 9 months of age, his Grand Championship 8 months later, and he is now past the halfway mark to a Grand Championship Bronze ... all before he turns 2 years of age.
