    Morris and Essex show is on Thursday. It is a HUGE show, over 4000 dogs entered and it is only held once every 5 years. Like the Kentucky Derby, hats are worn by the men and women, all kinds of beautiful hats! A box lunch is provided for ALL exhibitors, it is quite a show and although I am not there this year, Bacon (BISS GCH CH Temora Say It With Bacon) and Karma (Temora Cause & Effect) are there representing Temora kennels with Jackie Johnson handling them.

    Bacon & Jackie were in Amana IA for 2 days and both days Bacon won the breed over the other Special and took a Group 3 on Friday!
    Judges are loving him and his attitude and I have already heard the comment on how they like 'this Special' over Jackie's last one.
    Not dishing her last one, but judges DO know the difference between one dog and the next despite what some would say!

    Rio's sire Mac (UK/AM GCH CH BISS Temora Ri Diercc) was RDCC so that made my day knowing that TEMORA rocked it on Saturday

    7-24-2015 to 27-2015
    As always, it has been a busy weekend.
    Waukesha Kennel Club has their show this weekend and I am Assistant Show Chair as well as Trophy Chair. This is my last year in these positions as I am resigning those positions to get into new endeavors. It was a fun weekend, but very long and tiring!

    7-10-2015 to 7-19-2015
    Been a busy couple of weekends for Temora Aussies
    On the weekend of July 10th, we had Bitz & Pennie and Redi at the Kishwaukee shows.
    Pennie won one day the breed and Bitz won the breed from the classes on the last day! Was surprised at that, but it gave her 2 points towards her AKC championship when she defeated Pennie!
    Bacon was also showing and he and Jackie are starting to have fun, not that he was not prior to this, but he is starting to get the hang of what dogs shows are all about and is settling into his groove.
    In the last 2 weekends he has won the breed each day and on the weekend of the 10th, he took a Group 4 and a Group 2 and repeated it this last weekend! This is pretty stellar when you consider that he is competing against other breeds that are handled by the top handlers in the country! Jackie and Bacon are holding their own in the ring and judges are LOVING them!
    The most important thing is we are all having fun! This is a training year for Bacon and he is doing pretty good all things considered!

    6-27-2015 to 6-28-2015
    FUN weekend at the dog shows here in the USA!
    Bacon was at the Kettle Morraine show in WI with Jackie. He was the only Aussie entered, and took a Group 3 under Frank Washabaugh on Sunday.
    Nancy Tibbett was at the Lima shows with Reggie (Temora Rhythm and Blues). She was BEST OF BREED from the classes both Saturday and Sunday!
    This win over the Special gives her TWO-3 POINT MAJORS!
    HUGE feat for this team!
    Reggie now has 3 majors!
    Congratulations Nancy & Reggie!

    6-18-2015 to 6-21-2015
    Jackie and Bacon are in Cambridge MN this weekend showing. He will not be shown on Saturday as Jackie has a wedding to attend.

    Thursday:
    Bacon - Best of Breed
    Friday:
    Bacon - SEL Dog
    Sunday:
    Best of Opposite
    Happy with the results. The show was NOT dominated by any one dog or bitch Special over the course of the weekend. Bacon and the one other Bitch Special that won were one of the younger Specials as well. Happy to see he held his own against older Specials.

    05-28-2015 to 05-31-2015

    We had quite a weekend at a local show here in Wisconsin!
    it was a wonderful time and Nancy Tibbett came up with her boy Reggie (Temora Rhythm and Blues) and Judy was here with Tera (Temora Southern Comfort) and she also brought along our co-owned girl Redi (Temora Redi When You Are). Of course Bacon (GCH CH Temora Say It With Bacon) was there with Jackie! Cindy showed up with Walker (CH Temora Keeping Stride UD GO GN) as he was competing in the performance events.

    Bitzy (Temora Bacon's Bitz) was WB/BW for a 3 point major! Her first show!
    Redi (Temora Redi When You Are) was RWB.
    Bacon was Best of Opposite. My poor boy was so distracted with all the bitches in season, I felt bad for him....
    Walker had a stellar day as well!
    Utility B 190.5 and 4th place
    Open B 193
    This gave him his 1st UDX leg & 15 Obedience Master points!
    He is in the big leagues now!

    Sunday:
    Gator and Reggie won their class, that is as far as they went. Both boys (littermates) show really well and I was very proud of both of them!
    Bounce (Temora Viva La Vida) with Junior Luci Ellis showing her had a WONDERFUL day and was WB/BW for the 3 point major!
    Yeah Luci & Bounce!
    Bacon once again was best of Opposite
    Walker
    190.5 in Utility B, 3rd place.
    194.5 Open B, 2nd place.
    This gives him his 2nd UDX leg & 15 more Obedience Master points.

    4-23-2015 to 4-26-2015
    Busy weekend here and across the pond for Temora Terriers!

    On Thursday, Pennie (CH Temora Almost Famous) and I went down to the Champaign IL shows.
    Pennie did really good for her first time out as a Special.
    She was BOB both days and on Thursday, she took a Group 4!

    Also on the homefront, Karma (Temora Cause & Effect) was in shows as well through the weekend.
    Her placings are as follows:
    Group 4 on Thursday
    Group 3 on Friday
    Group 2 on Saturday
    Group 3 on Sunday
    Outstanding placements for a one year old! Very proud of her and her owner Jose!

    Across the pond, Rio (Temora Rhapsody in Blue) was entered in 2 shows on Sunday, something commonly done there, and something we are just starting here in the USA.
    Rio won the Breed at both shows and the Group!
    Again, totally amazing for a dog that is only a year old!
    Congratulations everyone on a FABULOUS weekend!

    4-17-2015 to 4-19-2015
    Busy weekend here in the states!
    Bacon is at the Fond Du Lac shows with Jackie and some new puppies are at the Maryland shows!
    Friday
    Fleurie (Temora Bud and Blossom) Winners Bitch for the point!
    Bacon Bits (Temora Tops It With Bacon Bits) best puppy!
    Saturday
    Bacon Bits was Winners Dog/Best of Winners for his first points!
    Fleurie was Winners Bitch again for the point!
    So very very excited for Dana, Fleuries owner and David and Heather who own Bacon Bit!
    They are new to conformation shows, so I am sure they are thrilled, as am I!
    Bacon (GCH CH Temora Say It With Bacon) was Best of Breed and a Group 4!
    Icing on the cake was Cindy & Walker!
    Walker showed today and got his Utility Dog Title. His score was 194.5 & 1st place. He also showed in Open B & qualified with a 196.
    So his name now is CH Temora Keeping Stride UD GO GN
    Sunday
    Another good day at the dog show!
    We had Dana's girl Fleurie (Temora Bud and Blossom) go Winners Bitch again at the Maryland show.
    Heather and Davids Boy (Temora Tops It With Bacon Bits) was 1st in his class! This is his third show to date so very happy for them! I am thinking that David and Heather have been bitten by the show bug!
    Thank you to the warm welcome and guidance of all the Aussie people at the show. The East Coast people have been very helpful to both Dana, Heather and David and because of this, they are excited about showing and the breed! Kudos to all of you!

    Walker and Cindy (CH Temora Keeping Stride UD GO GN) got a 193.5 in Open B today, but NQ'd in Utility B. The only thing he didn't do was the down on the signal exercise. Even the great ones have 'off' days!

    At the same show as Walker was Carole and Kiera (Temora Where The Magic Lives) and she scored 91 in Novice Rally B!

    Bacon (GCH CH Temora Say It With Bacon) was also out today at the Fond Du Lac shows. I went over to watch him in the group. He took a Group 4 under Judge Robert Shreve.

    I watched him in the ring play with his pink pig, OMG does he love his pig! He has spectators laughing with his antics. Bacon is a very happy boy and shows beautifully for Jackie.

    Congratulations to everyone! It was another GREAT day!

    4-4-2015 to 4-5-2015

    4-8-2015
    I have just spent the last week in Scotland with fellow breeder Sheila Stoddart and Mac (UK/AM GCH CH BISS Temora Ri Diercc). What a wonderful time! We went to National Terrier as well where Mac won the Dog CC and was BOS at the show. Also showing were Rio (Temora Rhapsody in Blue) and he went on to the puppy stakes and won a Puppy Group 4! Paris (UK/AM CH Temora's The Simple Life) was also shown in the Veteran Class and placed as well! It was a wonderful time and I have many photos to go through, but we did go down to the North Sea where the fishing boats are docked and had a nice photo shoot. I will be honest however, the highlight of the trip was that the minute Mac saw me, he remembered me! I have not seen him for a year, so it was a very emotional moment. I miss him terribly, but had a week to spend with him. He will be home at the end of this year and will not be leaving again.
     

    3-21-2015 to 3-22-2015
    What a very nice weekend it has been!

    I did not have any dogs showing, but dogs coming from my kennel were showing in the USA as well as some sired by Mac!

    On Saturday, Fleurie, Temora Bud & Blossom (out of Bull & Viki) owned and handled by Dana Radman Kruetzfeldt got her first point going Best of Winners, Best Puppy & Puppy Group 4 at the New Brunswick KC!

    Also on Saturday, Angelo (one of Mac's first offspring) GCH CH Marble Arch the Corner Man was Best of Breed in FL and a Grp2! His half brother Garbh (Temora Mac Eanric) was Winners Dog.

    In Germany, Anke' Sutterlin's Mac puppies were in their first show, both dog and bitch won their class and her boy was Best Junior!
    Congratulations Everyone!
