What an amazing weekend we had in Eau Claire, WI.  Very low entries in Aussies which is often the case here where we live.  Beckham won the Breed, Kaih won Best of Opposite, so on to Terrier Group Beckham and Ellie went.

For those of you new to dog shows, like us not too long ago, Group is where all the Best of Breed dogs for that day compete against other breeds within their classification.  In otherwords, because we have a terrier breed, our Aussie Terrier goes in the ring with other winning terriers for that day.  The judge determines the best Terrier and places the top 4 in rank 1-4.

Ellie and Beckham have been in group many times, it's difficult to place in group.  Aussies are not a popular breed, she's a junior handler, many dogs shown in group are professionally handled so for these reasons it's more challenging to place.

Saturday, with roughly 20 Terrier breeds represented in the group ring, Beckham shown by Ellie (11 years old) placed 4th in Group!  It was her first time placing and she was overwhelmed by this win!  We were so happy and proud of them. 

Sunday, again with roughly 20 Terrier breeds represented in the group ring,  Beckham and Ellie placed 4th in Group a second time!  We were so excited!

We're so honored by these wins.  Beckham is a fine example of the breed standard, it's great to have him recognized in the ring.  Thank you judges!!

Her determination and his love for her, make Beckham and Ellie quite the team and exciting to watch!

Breeder of Merit

Theresa Greetings from Northwestern Wisconsin! I am a wife, mother, grandmother, breeder and author. I also work with helping small businesses with their website needs. Previously, I had a 25 year banking career. Retired several years ago, as a Vice President of Commercial Banking and Business Development Director for a financial institution.

Breeder of Multiple Best in Show Aussies. We own and have bred some of the top Australian Terriers in the USA. We have bred and co-own the 16th and 17th Best in Show Australian Terrier in America he held the #1 in All-Breed in the USA in both 2013 and 2014. We have bred/own/handle the 2015 #1 Australian Terrier in the USA Jake who also won his first Best in Show with my 15 year old daughter Ellie handling him. Jake is only the 2nd "red" Australian Terrier to ever win a BIS. Breeder of 2 Australian Terriers to Win Best of Breed Westminster 2014 and 2015.
