Michelle is now 15 years old, and going to show Ch Van Sach's Captivating Zana in Juniors at Westminster 2010.
Besides qualifying in Juniors in 2009, she also won big with her QH Capri, sweeping championships at Fair,
EWHA, and even Reserve Grand Champion English Pleasure at 4-H STATE competition.  We are so proud!


While we are equally proud of all our children, our last one is still living at home.  We thought you might enjoy looking at some photos of Michelle (12 years old/2007) showing her English Setter,
Ch Backroad's Teachers Pet, as well as some of our Cavaliers, and a special Rottweiler she co-owns with Jim/Linda Garvie...Ch. Lorals DerTerminator.  Michelle is turning out to be a great hand in the conformation ring, and of course, is the resident puppy cuddler at home. 
Michelle ranked in the Top Ten for Junior Showmanship in both the Rottweiler breed, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed, and English Setter breed rankings.  She started competing in 4-H with her new horse, Capri, and won Reserve Champion in both Western Horsemanship and Showmanship at Fair in 2006, and was #6 overall for the year 2005-2006 in her age division.  And yes, she still maintains her 4.0 GPA at school.  Way to go Michelle!

We have heard from the ARC that Michelle and Rowdy ranked #7 in the country in the ARC Top 10 Junior Showmanship competition.  We are, of course, delighted.  Because of scheduling difficulties, Michelle and Rowdy will be unable to go around the ring at this year's National, but their performances in 2005 -- including a Best Junior Handler win at the Hoosier show in Indiana -- show teamwork and talent they should both be proud of.
Above is a photo of Rowdy & Michelle from their win at the Medallion Rottweiler Specialty last October.  Congratulations to Michelle for a job well done. 

Rowdy is owned by Jim & Linda Garvie


Michelle also has a passion for showing horses! Here she is with her QH mare, Squeek Class Capri
