Thetford Mines Canada Shows

Thetford Mines Canada
May 29 & 30th
Patch Mt's Springthyme at Blackthorn, "Spring" an 11 month old puppy bitch owned by Sara Pruyne and bred by myself and Sara earned her Canadian championship title in 3 shows. She went BOB, Group 2, Puppy Group 1 twice on Saturday and once on Sunday to finish her title in two days! Spring's sire is "Corey", Am/Can Ch Blackthorn Coreopisis of Patch MT TDX, RN, NA, NAJ x "Maeve", Am/Can Ch Patch Mt's About Time Am/Can CD, RE, TDX, OA, NAJ, CGC. Spring finished her Canadian championship under Canadian judges Sandy Gelinas, Alan Bennett and Michael Gelinas.
Meanwhile at the same shows her mother "Maeve" earned her Canadian CD title in 3 shows with a two 1st placements and one 2nd place.

Maeve also finished her Canadian championship title on the Sunday afternoon show by going WB and then BOB over a special under judge John Rowton. She had only needed a single point to finish.

We love going to these shows because although they are nearly 5 hours away you can do 4 shows in 2 days and the trip takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of Maine. Unfortunately it required driving home after dark in a very remote mountainous area where there is no cell phone reception and you can regularly count on seeing wildlife. We saw a moose, a bear and a porcupine but arrived home safely.

We couldn't be more proud of this lovely puppy bitch that Corey and Maeve produced. Like her sire she shows at the end of the leash for the exam and never flinches. A real show girl!
