BISS Ch. Asterling’s Running Ram-Pant, SDHF Trophy

AWARDED TO:

CH HILLOCK’S SUNFLOWER GOODNIGHT MOON

CALL NAME:Luna
OWNERS: Carol Russo/Paula Strazza/Tammy Tomlinson

You are soft and golden, with deep brown penetrating but compassionate eyes. Is it ever possible for you to get close enough? You are silly, funny, energetic, playful and smart. You are my unexpected friend, bringing me joy, laughter and tranquility. You are Luna.


CONFORMATION CHALLENGE TROPHY

Am. Bda. Can. Ch. Amberglo’s Sandy Hill Splash, OD

AWARDED TO:

CH HILLOCK’S SUNFLOWER GOODNIGHT MOON

CALL NAME:Luna
OWNERS: Carol Russo/Paula Strazza/Tammy Tomlinson

Luna

Where to start? The day I called my dear friend Paula from N.E.S.G.A jesting that we should co-own a bitch together? The day we drove 6 hours to PA for our pick bitch and I could not put the small, fluffy blondish puppy down once she was in my arms? The day she fetched the wing Paula threw and she learned what “place” meant?. The happy days, winning Best Puppy in Show at the Chesapeake and Lenape Golden Specialties? The many days following when she was recognized by almost every judge who saw her with a blue ribbon? The amazing day at Big Apple Sporting when she took the Major and BOS for her first points from the 12-18 class? The days at shows I spent watching her ringside, so serious, so beautiful, not recognizing the playful puppy we knew at home? Days of WB/BOW/BOS and BOB from the 12-18 class and finally her moment, finishing a Champion? All those days do not compare to the ones she spends curled up close, snuggling on the bed, but boy, they sure were fun! Luna is a very special girl and we can’t wait to see what she will do next.

My little Heather continues to delight me with her achievements in field events.

This year she qualified for the Master Agility National by earning 6 Master legs between August 1, 2014 and July 31, 2015.

I am so lucky to have her.

The three dogs listed above represent Amberglo Champions # 43, 44 & 45.

MY STARDUST MELODY, CDX RN MH WCX

CALL NAME:Heather
OWNER:Susan Handelman

Heather

Heather finished her Utility title in March 2015, with a first and two second places. She is such a happy worker that it is a pleasure to be in the ring with her. Once she learns her exercises, she is a very consistent performer. She also believes everyone she sees is in need of a greeting, so there is a constant yin and yang in her personality between work and play.


OVERLOOK’S SUTTON DOWNPOUR, CD RA CGC CCA

CALL NAME:William
OWNER: Lynn & Jonathan Halpern

William

Despite William’s antics and lack of an “off-switch” he managed this year to achieve his CD, RA and CGC titles. This was all in one year! His favorite activity is doing “zoomies” around the ring after he goes over a high jump. We are working on altering this behavior so he can get his CDX and RE in as few trials as possible. He loves to swim and does so every day while in Florida. We are working on Utility exercises as well as the Open routines. He works best after a long swim! We really love him despite all his shenanigans! We hope his membership in the Morris Animal Study will help both canine and human health to find the answer to the scourge of cancer.
