Well, we showed in Vallejo, Ca this weekend and Marina finished Emma!! She only needed three single points to win but wound up winning her third major (which was 3 points :chili: ) So now she is Ch. Bellarata's Glee By Design!

This is especially exciting because Marina (my 11 year old daughter) has been showing Emma exclusively from the puppy/bred-by-exhibitor class and has finished her start to finish (including all the training, etc) Emma just turned 1 years old a few days ago, so all in all, she finished fairly quickly, (6 mos almost to the day, so most of the wins were as a puppy.)

So here are some pics! A friend of mine had her hubby taking pictures this weekend so I'm lucky to have some amazing photos of this weekend.

This one, I took with my cell phone though, while Marina was having her finishing photo taken.

(some of you may recognize the judge, Norman Patton, who judged the National speciality in Vancouver, Wa)

(the following photos were taken by Derek and Teresa)

Marina getting her Winner Bitch ribbon




Emma gets VERY excited in the ring, and today was no different






and here is another cell phone pic of Marina and Emma at the hotel before the show today


So for now, Marina will show Emma for grand champion points and they will be getting ready for Eukanuba!

Here are some 'highlights' of the life of Emma


2 weeks old


8 weeks old


12 weeks


Truffles and Emma at ...4 mos I think (Truffles Left, Emma Right)


Nationals at 6 mos old


Second major and BOB at 11 mos



Thank you all for looking and sharing in this journey with us!!! :aktion033:

Here are her mom and dad

:cheer::cheer: OMG STACY - MARINA - FABULOUS NEWS. :cheer::cheer: How exciting and how fast. You must be so proud of both of them. Emma's always been a Champion in our eyes of course. :wub::wub: I'm so thrilled for you. Love the pictures though I must say I think my favorite is the last one of Marina and Emma at the hotel. They both look so happy together and obviously knew they were going to win:) Real confidence. Marina's just remarkable and I can't wait until she's at Westminster. We'll be in the cheering section for sure.:chili:

Hooray and congratulations to all of you. Today is about way more than a dog's accomplishments. Stacy, today is a day to celebrate YOUR accomplishments -- as a breeder and, so much more importantly, as a mother.

I am so thrilled for all of you!! :aktion033:

And I can't stop my heart from thumping ... that side profile of Emma moving gives me goosebumps ... she looks just like her grandpa Marc, the dog who sets the standard for what I will strive to produce.

How exciting. Way to go Marina!! I'm happy I was able to stop by on Saturday and sorry I missed the win on Sunday. Marina is so lucky to have such a supportive family. I can see that there is a lot of hard work for both of you. And I have to say Emma looks so happy in the ring.

I can't imagine how proud you must be Stacy. First of Marina and how fantastically she has trained and shown Emma. Then of Emma who has done so well so quickly. Lastly of yourself for doing so well in your breeding program. What a great day for all of you. Congratulations!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
