Ecco has been bred to Rogan (Ch. Redfox Sirius Rogan)! f she is pregnant this time around the pups will arrive in mid March!
Watermark Kennels had a truly amazing week at the National Specialty which for us began on the Fri with the Agility event. My girls, Ecco and Zoey are new to this sport but Zoey managed 2 Q's and Ecco 1 Q at their very first trial. Super proud of Zoey as she has had a rapid decline in her hearing over the last 2 months. Sat we moved on to the Sweepstakes event in which 4 Watermark Tollers were given placements in the 3 different Sweepstakes. Jed and Mattie in Juvenile Sweeps, Sara and Ally in Veteran Sweeps and Ceilidh in Breeder Sweeps. The afternoon brought on the Rally Obedience event and Ecco once again blew my mind with a High in Class score of 95 in Advanced A and her first leg. She also qualified in the Intermediate class for a first leg with a score of 85. As usual handler error on my part. Sunday brought us to Conformation and Watermark had an amazing day. Too much to write so will just list 12-15 month Larry 1st in his class 12-15 month Pond 2 in class ( this was Pond's first show ever and she was such a good girl in the ring!) 15-18 month Jed 1st in class, Jed was then awarded Winners Male, blew my mind as he is just 116 months Veterans 7-9 year. Ally 1st in Class Veterans. 12+ Sara our Matriarch at 14.3 strutted her stuff and place 1st. At this point my tears began to flow. The afternoon brought out the Specials Ryder makes the cut in the males and Ceilidh makes the cut in girls and Jed is in as Winners male (Laura Norie, I owe you). I felt so honoured to have 3 Watermark dogs in the final cut but I think my heart skipped about 10 beats when the judge actually pointed to Ceilidh for BOS. It was a major thrill and I can only imagine how Dianna and Ron Williams were feeling watching their young girl in the ring being awarded BOS at the National. All I can say is WOW and huge thank you to our wonderful judge, Dr Michael Woods and Ring Steward Rowan Dyer who worked tirelessly in the scorching heat of the day to give us a Specialty that we at Watermark will not soon forget! I will post some pics soon but must go to bed!
Ryder's other litter are now 3 weeks old and were born to Tollerpride's Duchess of Halifax (Hali). There is 1 boy and 4 girls!
Just back from the Vet and it is confirmed that Ecco is pregnant. It seems that she took late in her cycle so the pups are still very small and her due date has been pushed to about Mar 18th. Just happy to have pups o. The way.
