She is an absolute joy to own and has the most outgoing, happy and exuberant temperament. It has often been her exuberant nature and joy of life that has been her undoing in the show ring! With her entire back end wiggling madly she quite often has trouble keeping all four feet firmly on the ground! She has matured into a mostly well behaved girl and no longer has people running in the opposite direction when we need a handler for her!
Shelley was awarded her first CC & Best of Breed at 9 1/2 mths of age and was also awarded R/U Best In Group and Best Puppy in Group the same day! Also at just 9mths of age she was awarded BEST IN SHOW & PUPPY IN SHOW at the Golden Retriever Club Open Show! After going through one of her 'Wild Child' stages, Shelley put it all together and gained her Championship title at 21mths of age with a Best Of Breed. Since gaining her Championship, Shelley has done very well in the show ring gaining 338pts and a number of Group/Show awards.
From the 4 S.A. Golden Club Specialty shows she has attended she has the following record:
2000 - Mrs A Woodcock (UK) - 3rd Place Minor Puppy Bitch
2001 - Mrs H Morris (UK) - 1st Place State Bred Bitch & Opposite Sex State Bred In Show
2003 - Mrs W Andrews (UK) - 1st Place Aust Bred Bitch & Opposite Sex Aust Bred In Show
2004 - Mrs M Hean (NZ) - 1st Place Aust Bred Bitch & Opposite Sex Aust Bred In Show
In December 2002 Shelley produced a litter of 10 puppies to Am Ch Monterey Bay Eat Your Heart Out CD by frozen semen and we are very proud of the success these babies have had in the ring with 2 of them now Australian Champions. Her son Ch Savaneta Worth The Wait(ai)CCD ET was Reserve Challenge Dog at the 2004 Brisbane Royal Show!
We look forward to showing Shelley in 2007 and her debut as a Veteran.
