Record Setting Weekend
The new year's show
season traditionally begins for Chambray Labradors at the first weekend of
shows in March at the West Palm Beach Dog Fanciers Association dog show.
This date and venue has become the setting for the debut of the previous
year's crop of puppies and also the culmination of campaigning to champions of
several dogs. This year would be no different, in fact this year's event
proves to be the exclamation point to our entire program for the Betterment
of the Breed.
Sunday's show would provide the setting for the first back-to-back champions for Chambray, as Maya's littermate, Int Ch Chambrays Right On Target CGC (Dakota) would win out over all the males competing, thus winning a Winners Dog for a 4-point major. Coming into this weekend of show, Dakota needed 1 major win to finish out his championship, thus with this win he is now Am/Int Ch Chambrays Right On Target CGC. He also was awarded Best Of Winners and Best Of Opposite Sex. It would be Johanna Herzon that would be handling Dakota to his title at this show.
These 2 new Chambray champions also count as bred-by champions for Cindy Ceballos, making her a "Breeder of Champions in the AKC Record Books". Congratulations to our long-time Partner and friend, Cindy Ceballos. Also, the dam Chambrays Bailey Irish Cream will receive Honorable Mention for Brood Bitch of the Year by virtue of producing 2 or more champions in 1 year. The sire Ch Mtn Meadows Romeo also receives the same credits as the dam. Romeo is also the sire of Am/Nat Ch Chambrays Twist of Fate, Am/Int Ch Chambrays Mad About Madeline CGC TDI and Am/Int Ch Chambrays Chance N Counter CGC.
The excitement of 2 new champions in 1 weekend did not dim the celebration of one of our newest puppies, Chambrays Out Of The Ruff (Hogan) who was awarded Reserve Winners Dog to Dakota's 4-Point Major. Plus Hogan was also awarded Best Labrador Puppy at Sunday's show. Jessie teamed up with Hogan for this very impressive set of awards.
Jessie also handled Gateways Talk of the Town (Gabby) out of the 12 to 18 class to a Reserve Winners Bitch award. We expect great things from Gabby in the future as now our older girls are finished and it is our younger group of girls that must take the lead at the dog shows.
