April 2016 - Holler Aussies is officially a breeding kennel!! Our first litter is born and we are over the moon happy!!
Raven enters her first shows and goes Best Baby Puppy in TWO Shows!! (UKC) What a start to her show career. October of 2016 was Tucker get his Grand Championship under the guidance of Paige Wandzel (one of our mentors and good friends). In November, Raven was shown at the Caledon Kennel Club shows and was awarded 3 points towards her Championship.
March saw Ryder start the road to his Canadian Championship with the shows in Orangeville where he earned his first 2 points. In June, Ryder earned 3 more points in one weekend in Caledonia. August saw Ryder earning 3 more points at the Grey-Bruce shows in Owen Sound. And in November, we were back in Orangeville where Ryder earned 3 more points. Four weekends out and he is officially our FIRST CKC Canadian Champion!!
February 2018, we added Kenzie - Hearthside Eloquence, to our kennel. She came from Hearthside Australian Shepherds in the US. We thank Betsy from the bottom of our hearts for allowing this girl to become part of our home! In March, Kenzie made her show debut. In July, Kenzie earned her first 2 points at the Kawartha Show in Norwood. In November she earned 2 more points at the Aurora show at the International Centre.
What a way to start the 2019 show season off!! Kenzie earns 4 points while we are at the Wildwood show in Woodstock!! In August, Kenzie earned 4 more points and officially becomes a CKC Champion AND earns a couple of points towards her CKC Grand Championship!! Also in August, Raven earns 2 more points while we are at the Barrie show. Not to be outdone by Kenzie and Raven, Tucker goes BEST VETERAN IN SHOW and becomes the #2 Aussie Veteran in Canada for 2019. We also bred Holly again and had our first all red litter. From this litter, we kept Cedar - Holler's Forever Grateful. Look up Cedar under our Co-Owned dogs.
In February, Cedar entered the ring as a baby puppy. He was off to a good start and had fun running around with other baby puppy Aussies. March saw Cedar back in the ring as a baby puppy and Kenzie in as a Special where she earn points towards her Grand Championship.
Then COVID-19 hit and dog shows were cancelled.
Sky - Holler's Je T'Aime (Cutie x Tucker) tried her paw at the dog show world with her co-owner, Jamie. I'm so proud of this team! While they didn't get any points towards her CKC Championship at the show, they sure did look good out there!
Sooner - BIS, CKC GCHS, AKC CH Tresrullah's Holler At Ya Boy finished 2021 as the NUMBER ONE AUSSIE, male! So very proud of Team Sooner! I cannot thank Emily Burdon enough for showing him to perfection every time they stepped out into the ring. I can't thank Brenda and Paige - there are just no words - for allowing me to be co-breeder and co-owner on such and extraordinary dog!
Dog shows are slowly coming back! Kenzie is a mere 6 points away from her CKC Grand Championship, so we are going to go for it before she steps away for her first litter.
Sky is going to continue her road to a CKC Championship with Jamie and I can't wait to see these two in action!
Cedar, after having his Baby Puppy show carrier cut short due to COVID, is going to stretch his legs and try the show scene again.
Also, watch the ring for Phoebe (Raven x Cash)! She hasn't made her debut yet, but we have high hopes for her! We also have a lovely black tri boy, Maverick, who is Sky's full litter brother. He too, will try his luck in the show ring this year.
On a sad note, we lost the cornerstone of Holler Aussies early in the morning on January 13th. Tucker was having fun and being his normal self at 6am in the morning. By 8am he was gone. We will never get over the loss of this wonderful boy! He didn't like showing, but would "put up" with it for a few of his favorite people. Rest east my Prince! Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
