Boz is a wonderful show dog. He finished both AKC and UKC championships, but he really enjoyed field work.

He also brought his awesome bloodlines and passed on his perfect topline and tailset – plus his personality – to his puppies.

In case you’re wondering how he got his name he was bred by Big Sky Labs and owned by Justamere Ranch. And with parents named for Ringo Starr and Olivia Newton-John, of course he had to have a music-related name. Thus Lido Shuffle which was a song made popular by Boz Scaggs.

Winning Best Puppy in Specialty Show

Trip to Albuquerque and Boz brought back some booty!  He won Best Puppy and made the cut for Winners Dog under judge Nancy Talbott. He also picked up some cash in the Sweepstakes ring. Thanks Linda for taking him with you!

First big win – Best of Breed and Group 3 from the puppy class – and he wasn’t even 7 months old yet! Judge Jennifer Landers.

Boz’ first hunt test was quite an adventure. Ears up, quivering with excitement while we waited in the holding blind. First land mark – out and back in what seemed like seconds. Who says show dogs don’t have drive? Second bird landed a little deeper, but he judged the depth well. Small search in the thicker cover to find the bird and came running back like a runaway freight train.

Boz won Best of Winners – back to back – at the Arapahoe KC shows. Thank you to both judges – Dr Ronald Spitzer and Dr Steve Keating (pictured). Unfortunately the photographer lost our win photo from Saturday.

Boz goes Best of Winners again – this time for a 4-point major – at the Flatirons KC show under judge Dr Clyde Shaw. Thank you to Susan Rose who handled him for me after I broke my kneecap.

Just a few single points to go!

Thank you Tiffany Marzluf for ALL that you do!
