Classique Tempo de Puccini


(Ch. Red Letter Days de l'Heureux (out of a Sarek daughter)
x Ch. Classique Just Rewards de Mielleux PT JHDs U-AGI ROM HOF (a Sarek daughter) )

Owned by Nona Horsley

2006 AKC Invitational participant
2007 AKC Invitational invitee (and plans to participate)

Puccini earned her MXJ last year (Masters Excellent Jumpers with Weaves). It takes 10 perfect scores to get. She earned her MX (Masters Excellent Standard) on September 1, 2007. (Again takes 10 perfect scores in Standard excellent class). The MACH (Agility Championship) takes 20 Double Qualifying runs (perfect score in both jumpers with weaves and standard on the same day) and 750 speed points (you get one point for every second that you run the course under time). Puccini is 1/2 done with MACH - has 600 speed points and 10 Double Qs, so has to get the other 10 Double Qs to get MACh .

There is only one Briard ever with a MACH, so hopefully she will be the second. (There are only 4 ever MX MXJ Briards). She is VERY fast so her handler really has to work extra hard to keep up with her. Chini is just 4 years old, which is pretty young to be running at her level consistently.

NEW MX as of 9/1/07

Ch. Classique Allez Jaune Maillot RN, PT, TD 


(Harrison x Sabrina)

Owned by Burke Morrow

Shown winning his fourth group placement from the Puppy class - a BLUE one this time

What a versatile Briard and athletic owner. Surprised she hasn't put him in Labrador Field Trials - Burke's last winning canine sport.

“Trever” tawny dog

Trever is now living in Texas with Julie Reconnu and Mike Gibson. He has produced some wonderful puppies, including three or four group placers, and should earn his ROM soon. The sweetest of boys, Trever always passes on his wonderful temperament.

Sire: Ch Dante Bohemia Elite   Dam:  Classique Risque Business

Co-owned with a new briarder, Penny Morris in Wisconsin, Chloe finished her championship with 6 majors this summer – yes, 6 majors – she won even when not groomed and poorly handled to “hold the major”. Chloe and Penny had a great time at their first National Specialty/Rass this year and earned all of her fun titles (TT CGC HIC TDI), showing off her wonderful temperament and the great job Penny has done with her. The Chief Temperament Tester chose Chloe as the Briard  “he would most like to take home with him.” Chloe will bred Spring 2007, pending her health clearances. We recently got the good news that Chloe’s hips were OFA Good.
