This weeks cover dog - "Jade"

MBIS MBISS CAN GCH BIS OH AM CH NAPOLEO JADE LA PERLE

A breeding program is only as good as its bitches. In this case, we struck gold with Jade! 



Jade was trained as a puppy by Kyle and Rhoda from Team Ace Professional Handling. This was the first time we agreed to leave one of our dogs with a handler and I would be lying if I said I was disappointed with our decision. She returned home eager to show and loving to the ring. Then went on to win many great awards Owner Handled by myself. 



Best Owner Handler in Show USA 
Multiple Canadian and US group winner
Multiple Canadian Best in Shows 
Multiple Best in Specialty wins including 3x Regional Specialty winner




And then it was time for the Canadian National.. We knew going in we were confident with what we had but never expected to come out with the win as it’s never been done before with a Female St. It was 2019 and we were in Winnipeg staying with friends, enjoying every moment. Our National was judged by Breeder judge Fran Stevens and like many others, Jade swept her off her feet. She was awarded Best of Breed, Best Canadian Bred and Best Bred By Exhibitor to be the very first female to ever win our Canadian National Specialty. It was a day that we will remember forever. 



This past year Jade beat many records in our breed. She is now the all time winning St Bernard female in Canadian history and continues to exceed our every expectation. We believe the Ace’s were a huge part in laying the foundation to Jade’s show career so we have decided to rejoin them in what we believe will be her greatest year yet. 



We are extremely excited to be heading to New York City with our girl to compete in one of the worlds most prestigious shows, The Westminster Kennel Club. We are thrilled to be representing Canada and hoping to have some great results coming to you soon! 

We would like to thank all of the judges for awarding Jade so highly and to every person that has been apart in supporting our girl to date. Bring on 2020!

Pat: I agree with Mike but I really appreciate when an exhibitor picks up large pieces of their bait from the floor.


5. What is the most annoying thing that an exhibitor can do in your ring?

10. What is the funniest thing that you have ever seen in the ring?
Pat: It was pretty funny when an exhibitor pointed out to me that I was wearing Mike's name tag but even funnier was to see Mike wearing my name tag and upside down to boot.
 
Mike: I was judging my first dog at Group Level in two large outdoor groups assigned to me at one of my first shows in the United States - Carson City, Nevada to be precise.  Almost every breed was represented in the Group as is often the case in the US.  I had not judged any of these dogs at breed level so had to give them a thorough examination at Group level. The judge's gallery was full and there were spectators all around the ring. As I bent down to examine my first dog I felt my belt buckle pop. I had recently lost some weight so my pants were quite loose and I felt my pants going south. Pat had just bought me a new belt because the buckle on the old belt was failing.  When she asked me which belt to pack I then realized that I had chosen the wrong one.  What to do ... I managed to put my left had in my jacket pocket and reach the wondering  pants to keep them from falling down while I carefully made my way to the judge's table. Somehow I was able to get the buckle back together and finish judging every individual dog in those two groups with as little movement  and breathing as possible.  This made for a very interesting conversation at dinner that evening.  Moral of the story - "Throw out malfunctioning wardrobe pieces".
 
Join us each week for the next Chapter!
 

-Chapter Two -
 
Life continued on from that point. I started a new school, made new friends, all the while that Irish Setter never left my thoughts, but the tall man scared me. So even on my way to school, when Topaz would try to say hello, I would whisper back so as not to upset his owner. I think the red dog knew how I felt, because just like clockwork he was at that fence, sending me off to school and seeing me safely home again. Even during the neighbourhood road hockey game, it was like Topaz was a season ticket holder.
 
It was actually during one of those most important matches, that an incident happened whose outcome would forever change my life. On this particular day, my new friend Mark and I were playing an impromptu game of “keep away”. That’s when you have but one net and two players. With each possession the ball carrier tries to score on the lone net. If the defender obtains the ball, he must take it back to a pre-determined starting point and try to score himself.
 
Mark was much bigger than I, and his slap shot sent shivers through most opponents. What made it worse is we lived on a gravel road, so not only did you get that hard orange ball coming at you at a zillion miles an hour, you also got a contrail of pebbles that followed like buckshot. The lucky thing was, Mark didn’t have a very accurate shot. I’m sure the saying “Couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn”, was intended for Mark. So on that day, when Mark wound up and sent that destiny changing slap shot towards me, I had nothing to fear as it rocketed past. The only problem, its eventual destination, was through the tall man’s living room window. Seeing as Topaz wasn’t in the yard, our best guess was the tall man and his dog were walking in the ‘ganny’, a local term for the woods behind our subdivision. Most locals walked the trails in there.
 
With that knowledge, Mark had the lame idea to retrieve the ball. No ball, no evidence. Mustering up all our courage, not a whole lot when you’re 11, the two of us jumped the fence, with hopes that the scary, tall man left his door open.
 
Mark approached the door. “It’s open,” he whispered.
 
“Well, go in and get the ball,” I said.
 
“No, I think you should Garry.”
 
Mark’s reason for the decision was as he was taller and bigger – I would have used the term fatter – I would be faster than him, so he should keep watch while the Flash committed breaking and entering to rescue our ball, extinguishing all signs of our guilt.Off I went, me and my new found bravado. How hard could it be? I opened the door, gave one last look outside, while Mark gave me that assuring ‘just go’ gaze and in I went.
 
There was a smell to the inside, like a mixture of smoke and old shoes. It was dark, except the TV was left on, illuminating the room in a flickering ghostly manner. I brushed fear aside and set out on my task.
 
I found where the ball came in, and the broken glass, but the orange intruder was nowhere to be found. My eyes searched the entire room, still no luck. The TV flicker reflected off something, it shone like sunlight, more like a mirror, when struck by the sun. Following the light I found an old silver bowl sitting on a shelf just opposite the old Sears television set. And from my vantage point the colour orange was easily detected in the reflection. The ball had bounced and settled in the bowl.
 
On tip-toes I reached for the object that held my treasure. Pulling it down. I noticed engraving on the silver chalice. ‘The International Kennel Club of Toronto’ and below that it said ‘Best in Show, 1961’.
 
And at that moment it seemed like the sun was being blocked and all I heard was, “Ain’t that a cracker, we got ourselves a burglar, Topaz.”
