GCH Afara Ultraviolet
**Ula finished her Grand Championship going BOS under Judge Garry Newtown in Woodstock, IL on June 2nd – thank you for this win! Ula is my first Grand Championship, owner-handled to every GCH point except for one 3 pt major (handled by Jill Raugh for this major/competition win – thank you Jill!!).**
A huge thank you to Paul Chen for letting Ula come live with us!
Paul began showing Ula over the summer, and put 13 points on her, including 3 majors. The first weekend out with me, she was WB at Stone City Kennel Club for 2 points to finish her Championship. Ula has been specialed selectively to her Grand Championship and will begin obedience work at a later date. Ula has great drive and is always up for something new! We look forward to Ula doing some great things in the breed and obedience rings in the coming year after her maternity leave, which will be coming later this summer. 🙂
Ula’s win record since coming to Chicago..
Her first weekend out with me – October 2012 – Stone City Kennel Club – WB, 2 points to finish her championship under Judge Professor Douglas C Taylor (Paul put 13 points on Ula with 3 majors prior to coming to Chicago)
Ula and I entered a couple of shows in December, one very local to which we showed when there were no points in bitches just for practice, and one day in Belleville during a large entry of specials. We got out our feet wet, and then for our first real weekend out…
