Show News 2008
NEW AMERICAN CHAMPION !!
AM. CAN. CH. AMBERTRU'S HARD 2B HUMBLE
What more can I say. Logan has been a dream come true for me. He has gladly given anything asked of him and has done so with such wonderful enthusiasm. I am incredibly proud of my boy and eternally thankful to Cortney Corral for her outstanding grooming and handling skills that made him look like a winner at every show! To say that Logan adores her is an understatement (I'm jealous! LOL)
Again many thanks to Susan Bulger and Zoom for making this dream litter possible.
I'm proud to say that Logan's win also made his daddy an Outstanding Sire! Congrats Zoomy! You deserve it!
The weekend before this show Logan also became a Certified Therapy Dog!
Now we are on to Obedience and whatever else comes our way :) Of course Logan will be in the specials ring every now and then as well.
Many Thanks to all of you who supported him!
*Logan's first litter is due Thanksgiving Day (US) @ Forrest Creek Goldens in Michigan*

HUGE Congrats to Linda & Corbyn on his new CD title!
Not only did Corbyn get his CD in his first three trials but he did it by going HIGH IN TRIAL for all three of his qualifying legs! Just as exciting, this win came on the tail of an owner handled Group 1st in conformation only weeks earlier. What an incredible team!
To say am proud of you both is an understatement!!
