This girl is on fire!  Katniss Everdeen (she prefers her full call name) started her show career with a Best of Breed win from the 6-9 puppy class at the San Antonio Kennel Club show in Kerrville, Texas, on Sunday, March 12, 2016, with our thanks to Judge Anne M. Barlow.  At nine months, and after a few Reserve majors elsewhere, Katniss was Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Opposite Sex from the Bred-by Exhibitor class for a five-point major at the Acadiana Kennel Club show in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on June 9, 2016, under Judge Norm Kenney (pictured above with Charles).  Katniss was shown again on the last day of that cluster and took the Reserve.  At the Lone Star State Classic cluster in Dallas (July 7-10), Katniss was shown on the first and last days.  On the first day, at the Trinity Valley Westie Club Specialty show, Katniss took a Reserve Major from the Bred-by class under Judge Dianne Ivey.  On the last day, at the Trinity Valley Kennel Club show, Katniss was Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Opposite under Judge Christine Erickson for Katniss' second major win, taking her more than halfway to her Championship title at ten months.  Katniss Everdeen's next time out was during the Houston World Series of Dog Shows July 20-24, 2016, where she scored a four-point major going Winners Bitch on Wednesday at the Houston All Terrier Club show under Judge Vicki L. Abbott, and became a New Champion at 10.5 months of age on Thursday with her fourth major win when she captured Winners Bitch under Judge Geir Flyckt-Pedersen at the West Highland White Terrier Club of SE Texas Specialty show.  All of Katniss' championship point wins except her first puppy point were from the Bred-by Exhibitor class.

Katniss' first weekend out as a special was during the Lone Star State Classic cluster in Dallas the weekend of December 8-11, 2016, where she picked up three- and four-point Grand Champion majors three of the four days. Paula then showed Katniss at the West Highland White Terrier Club of America National Specialty on March 18, 2017, during the show cluster in Louisville, Kentucky, where Katniss received the First Award of Merit, with our thanks to Judge Connie Clark for the honor. Katniss became a new Grand Champion her next weekend out, at the Casino Royale Cluster in Shreveport, Louisiana, the weekend of April 21-24, 2017, winning three five-point Grand Champion majors in a large entry, with Select Bitch wins under Judges Gloria Geringer and Dr. Gerard Penta, and Best of Breed and her GCH title on the last day with our thanks to Judge Norman B. Kenney. Katniss went on to win Specialty Best In Show honors under Breeder Judge Bob Shreve at the Trinity Valley WHWTClub show in Dallas on July 6, 2017, followed by two other Best of Breed wins under Judges David Kirkland and Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine during the Lone Star State Classic Cluster. These wins placed Katniss among the Top Ten Westies in the U.S. for 2017.

 

 

 

 
Katniss was then placed in the expert hands of the A-Team and was shown by Alfonso Escobedo at during the “Montgomery” weekend in Pennsylvania, October 5-8, 2017, where Katniss was beautifully presented among top notch competition and earned Select major wins under Judge Robert Stein at Friday’s Hatboro Dog Club show, under Judge Gay Dunlap at Saturday’s Devon Dog Show Association show, and again—for Katniss’ highest honor of the weekend—under Judge Edd Bivin at the WHWTCA National Specialty in conjunction with the Montgomery County Kennel Club show in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, a win that also won Katniss a Qualifying Award Certificate for Crufts in 2018 and 2019.
