2011 News and Reviews























I made the Magazine!!

Dog Fancy did an article on Rottweilers for the September edition and I was interviewed for it.  Go check it out at Dog Fancy!  They did an outstanding job considering she interviewed me on the run from dog show to dog show.  Thank you to Dog Fancy for making the Rottweiler shine...













New FCI International Champion!

"Last year I took Lucia to her first FCI show in San Juan, Puerto Rico. That weekend she earned her PR CH, Pan Am CH, Latin Am CH and 4 CACIB'S towards her FCI International CH. Since she earned all 4 CACIB's at that show we had to wait 366 days or longer (an FCI rule) to get her final CACIB to finish her Int CH.

   This weekend we flew down to San Jose, Costa Rica to try our luck at completing her Int CH. There were 4 shows scheduled for the weekend. An International and National show each day. Even though Lucia is already an FCI CH, Costa Rican rules state that a dog without a Cost Rican CH must be entered in the Open Class. I was not thrilled about that but it was too late to back out. There were other females in her class. Each dog entered the ring seperately doing their once around the ring. We were the last to enter the ring. As we came around to the other dogs I turned Lucia around into a free stack which she did perfectly! The Judge saw this and could not his eyes off of her. As each dog was doing their down & back the Judge kept staring at Lucia in her free stack. The Judge then had all of us do several laps around the ring. He then stopped us to line up again. The Judge moved us to First place which gave us V1, CACCR, CACPB, CACIB, CACLAB, and Reserve Best of Breed. With Lucia earning a CACCR that moved her into the CH's Class the following day. Also that CACIB completes her FCI Int CH (pending FCI approval). Show number 2 Lucia earned V2 in the Open Class.
    In show number 1 of the 2nd day Lucia got V1 and the point she needed a CAGCCR to make her a Grand Costa Rican CH! During show number 2 she again went V1 in the Champions Class with a CAGCCR and a UNCACEN. A UNCACEN counts towards a Central American CH. Since she only earned 1 UNCACEN this weekend we may go to another FCI sometime in the future.
    I saw a few friends at the show and made some new ones. Everybody that saw Lucia loved her! What a great weekend for her: Costa Rican CH, Grand Costa Rican CH and the best one of all FCI INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

This show weekend was I think one of the most successful weekends for the dogs and owners. Many congrats to all my owners and co-breeder Nancy Newton for all your hard work and effort in training and showing.  Without all of you the successes we are having would not be possible.  Elkton was a super time for us all right down to the fishing trip that Sue took us on...woo! Now onto our brags!!

Go Kaiya go!

Note From Quinn:

   I hope you are all having a great weekend. In 2009 I started training Damien in carting. He was such a fast learner that he got ranked #2 in Carting Started and Carting Started Team in ARC's Top 10 for Carting. Well Damien has done it again getting ranked in ARC's Top 10, not in Carting but this time in Obedience for 2010. I won't find out what placement he will get until ARC Nationals but I am very happy for him to accomplish this. Maybe next year he can get ranked in another category.

    The weekend of April 23-24 I had Damien and Lucia entered in an AKC show in Zolfo Springs. I started showing Damien in AKC shows back in 2005. During that time he earned points towards his CH but we stopped a long the way to concentrate on other venues. Such as UKC, Canada, Bahamas and FCI conformation shows. After completing his FCI International CH I decided to prepare him for his SchH I. I continued to show Damien in AKC shows earning more points but still needing his final major. We made it to the Winners round several times but the Judge didn't see it our way until April 23rd. That day the sun was shinning, the birds were singing and the Judge awarded Damien his final major for his to earn his American CH!  The following weekend Damien turned 7 so what an amazing Birthday present for him to finish his AKC CH!

It was good to be at a Local show and the dogs did very well.  Kaiya took her first 2 pts and Lothar added another Select to his wins. Nancy and Sassy were given Best Bred By with a Group 3 with her brother Chance taking Best of Winners and then the following day Sassy was Best of Opposite sex and her brother Gunner was Best of Winners for the points for 2 straight days!!  Nancy was right...the breeding with Bea and Ace was a very nice one...these pups are well on their way to finishing their Championships.


Nancy proceeded to take Sassy and the kids to the Speciality in Tallahassee hosted by Seminole Rottweiler Club where she did very well and won Reserve Winners Bitch and  Best Bred By in Show!  Congrats Nancy!


Florida January Circuit

This years January Circuit was one to remember for all the of the dogs from the dragon team.  It was a long and tough circuit but the dogs all proved themselves good enough to stand for their owners even in the hardest of competitions.  I want to personally Thank Nancy Newton and her husband Jerry for being such good friends and giving supporting hands.  Most of all I want to congratulate them on the success they experienced on this years circuit with the litter they co-bred with me from their champion "Ace" and my girl Bea Elez Rott.  Nancy you do one hell of a job training a Rottweiler and it shows every time you walk in the ring.
