LAST SHOW / WRAPPING UP 2014

The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship show in Orlando on December 13-14 was the last show for 2014.  CC is pictured above in the group ring with her boyfriend and handler, Alfonso Escobedo, after winning the breed under Judge Loraine Boutwell to finish the year in style.  Photos courtesy of Nancy Spelke.

We are confident that 2014 will remain in our record books as our best show year ever, with BIS BISS Gold GCH CH TullyBloom's Classified Credentials earning the credentials of #1 Westie in the U.S.A., breed and all breed, and placing among the Top 20 Terriers (#16) in the country.  We are very proud of CC's achievements, but also proud of our other Westies who showed this year:  Chase (GCH CH TullyBloom's All About The Chase) and Calee (GCH CH TullyBloom's Calendar Girl) both earned their Grand Champion titles earlier in the year and their littermate Ready (CH TullyBloom's Camera Ready) earned her Champion title in October and is now only seven points shy of her Grand Champion title, plus picked up two legs toward her Coursing Ability title (and these three are not yet two years of age).  Not to be forgotten just because he changed residences and parents in 2013, Commander (GCH CH TullyBloom's Covert Commander Chaos, CGC, ThD) earned his AKC Therapy Dog title in October under the training and guidance of owners Eric Phifer and Eric Shreiber (Commander is CC's brother).
