CH. AGASSIZ'S TRIBLUE STORM WATCH, HIC
CH. AGASSIZ'S TRIBLUE STORM WATCH, HIC, VS (aka Kallee)
RIP 2005 - 2016
Kallee was a sweetheart and won the hearts of everyone that knew her. Her show kudos to date includedBest in Match; Winners Female, Best of Opposite and Best Puppy in Breed at the ACDCC Booster 2006; Best Puppy in Breed at the ACDCC National Specialty in 2006. She finished her championship by placing in the group. Her favourite past time however, was long lazy walks and taking up most of the space on the couch or the bed.

BIS, BOSS G CH. AGASSIZ'S BLUEBERRY CRUSH, HIC (aka Ginny)
Ginny is the newest star to arise out of Agassiz Kennels. She is co-owned with myself and Jeremy Browne of Byeyo Perm Reg'd Kennels near London, Ontario. Ginny has had an amazing show career as a puppy. She became a Canadian Champion as a senior puppy by going Best in Show from the classes!! She is the first female and youngest ACD to win a Best in Show in Canada and also holds the record for winning the most Best Puppy in Show wins. She is a multiple group placer....all this before a year old!
Her first show in the US at Kalamazoo, MI in the spring of 2014....as a junior puppy she took Best of Breed from the classes. That gave her a 5 point major for her first points towards her American Championship! There was a total of 21 cattle dogs entered over all...then she was considered for a group placement. The next day she went Reserve Winners Bitch at the Regional ACD Specialty....what a thrilling weekend!
Then at the Australian Cattle Dog Club of America National Specialty 2014 in Tennessee, she won her 12-15 month class over an entry of 10 dogs! What another honour for this young girl!
She is following the footsteps of her father MBIS, MRBIS, Can GChEx Agassiz's Whiskey on the Rocks, CGN, HIC, VS, RIT (Whiskey) and her grandfather BISS Ch. Uretopia's Truth or Dare, HIC (Boomer). Her mother is pictured below.....Skye!! Ginny's grandmother, Krysta is also pictured below Skye!
