GCH CH Railey...

Post  GrandRiverDachs on Tue Sep 27, 2011 2:50 pm

If you are on FB you will have already heard... Railey is now new CH Ruffwyrs Queen of the Rail to GRD SW.

She finished in style with a 4pt major on the first day (Thursday) of the Helena show in MT this past weekend under judge Beverly Capstick. I had her entered in the AOH class too so was excited about that. Smile I showed her to Ms. Capstick in February 2011, at that time she said "you have a very nice bitch but you need to take some weight off of her, she looks like a stuffed sausage on the move". Smile

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Railey took Select Bitch all three days. All were competitive wins toward her Grand Championship and all were 4pt majors (possibly 5 pt major on sunday, have to wait to see what AKC says). So in total she picked up 12 Grand champion points and all 3 of her majors in one weekend, now just 12 singles to go. Smile I was surprised she took select on Sunday as her mom was out there showing too and she beat her mom for select. Smile

I am so proud of my girl... she decided she wanted to show... it helped that I made her a bit jealous by showing Desert right before she went into the ring (had the crate facing the ring & she watched me show Desert). tongue

Picture of Railey taken the end of June.


Kinda blurry but here is Railey's CH picture that Kristi took with her camera. It will be about a month before I get the photos from the photographer.

official photo:

My campsite for 4 days 4 nights. Lisa Mangles and I had a tent village set up lol (canopies).

I know I said it on FB too, but I'm SO happy for you. That last major was a bitch to get and I'm thrilled you finally got it.

Thanks! I was nearly ready to give up. hide timerunout I have only shown her at 3 shows this past year because there have been no majors. I have entered in a lot more, but didn't go because she only needed a major. She has been pointed out since last september. It spoiled me cause her first weekend out at 6 months she got her first major. Then it was one point here, 2 points there, etc etc. The major broke at one of the shows (rocky mtn hound association last year). Frustrating! lol I wasn't going to show her anymore, but since she went select those 3 days and got her Gr CH majors I will try to get that on her. Won't have to worry about getting any significant points though.

Thanks to Lisa M and a kennel club member Judi Bendt (who is a judge) for their encouragement to keep going. love puppykisses

I added her CH picture above.

Dana.....it was great to be there and share your excitement.....was happy that you finished her (even though you took the win away from Molly and I laugh) and happy you went on to take all those Selects for an awesome start towards her Grand!!
I enjoyed our time together and thought we had the best set up with our little "tent city"

Railey took BOS all three days in Scotts Bluff, NE and BOV all 4 days in Wichita, KS. Hoping for a little more competition the next few shows so that she can earn some grand champion points. In KS this past weekend I was probably the only owner handler in the group ring. Pretty tough competition and none of the dachshunds did anything.

It was nice meeting Cindy Daniels in person at the KS show this past weekend! Thanks for introducing yourself to me, wish we could have had more time to visit. Smile

Here is a picture from the Columbine Dachshund Club Specialty where she took Select Bitch. She has 46 grand points now, just about 1/2 way to her Bronze. Smile)
