SECRET SUPERHEROES SECURE YEAR-END SUCCESSES!
 
We had a super fun weekend at the Lone Star State Classic cluster in Dallas, Texas (December 8-11, 2016), closing out another successful year. It was Paula's first time back in the ring since July (between surgeries) to show Katniss Everdeen (CH TullyBloom's Girl On Fire) as a new champion.  We are grateful to Ashlie Whitmore, assisted by Connery Cole, who took charge of Wonder (CH TullyBloom's Wonder Woman, CGC), Flash (TullyBloom's Flash Of Brilliance), and Super (TullyBloom's Superwoman, Yes I Am), professionally presenting each to look their best.  Our thanks to Judges Louise Leone, David M. Krogh, Mrs. Darle Heck, and John P. Wade, respectively, for recognizing and rewarding our secret superheroes.
 
Wonder had a wonder-ful weekend and showed beautifully for Ashlie, taking Best Opposite three of the four days, winning Best of Breed against one of the top Westies in the country on Friday, and then winning a huge Terrier Group placement under Judge David Krogh (Wonder with Ashlie are in the top of three photos above).  Those wins gave Wonder four- and five-point Grand Champion majors, and her Grand Champion title!  Wonder's parents, Eric Phifer and and Eric Shreiber, already achieved a CGC (Canine Good Citizen) title with Wonder, and she will now pursue other interests, perhaps including therapy dog work.  Her group placement in Dallas was so significant, it landed her as the #18 Westie (all breed) for 2016.

 

Flash started the weekend just a single point shy of his Championship.  Due to Ashlie's ring conflict on Friday, Paula had the honor of taking Flash into the ring for Winners Dog and Best of Winners for a four-point major and his Champion title!  Connery Cole then handled Flash to back-to-back Grand Champion majors on Saturday and Sunday.  Flash's New Champion photo is the middle of the above three.

 

Katniss Everdeen picked up three- and four-point Grand Champion majors three of the four show days, moving her well on her way toward her Grand Champion title (the bottom of the three photos, with Judge David Krogh).

GCH CH TULLYBLOOM'S CALL ME KRYPTONITE OFF ON A NEW ADVENTURE
 
GCH CH TullyBloom's Call Me Kryptonite, born on August 31, 2015, retired from the show ring at 14 months of age, having earned his GCH title on October 21, 2016.  As of his retirement, Kryptonite ranked in the Top Twenty of all Westies in the U.S.A., holding the #20 Breed spot and #18 All Breed standing (and remained among the Top 20 at year-end).  On November 19, 2016, our very special Kryptonite met his new parents, Dr. Ken and Mimi Smith, new "sister" Stella, and some other new relatives. Kryptonite will be taking it easy in the "Big Easy" (New Orleans, Louisiana), but will continue to occupy a special place in our hearts.

HUMBLE AND BEAUMONT, AND PICKING UP POINTS
 
Between the Beaumont Kennel Club shows in Humble and the Galveston County/Cypress Creek shows in Beaumont, Texas, the first two weekends of November 2016, four of the five Secret Superhero puppies were shown and picked up some points.  Above on the left is new CH TullyBloom's Wonder Woman (with Ashlie Whitmore), who picked up eight GCH points between the two weekends, going Best Opposite or Best of Breed. Above on the right is GCH CH TullyBloom's Call Me Kryptonite (handled on the day by A-Team assistant Miguel), whose last show was in Humble where he won Best of Breed both days. TullyBloom's Flash Of Brilliance was shown in Beaumont (his first show since July) and picked up a few points with Best of Winners and Best of Breed wins. TullyBloom's Superwoman, Yes I Am scooped up a point with Winners Bich the last day of Beaumont, taking Reserve the day before.  Wonder, Super, and Flash will finish their show careers in the capable hands of Alfonso Escobedo and Ashlie Whitmore, with continued show assistance by Charles as needed.  Paula hopes to be back in the ring again soon with Katniss Everdeen (CH TullyBloom's Girl On Fire).

NEW CHAMPION WONDER WOMAN; and READY EARNS HER COURSING ABILITY TITLE
 
Charles drove to Austin for the day on October 29, 2016, during the Travis County Kennel Club shows, and with great assistance from the A-Team (Alfonso Escobedo and Ashlie Whitmore), got the last bred-by point needed for Wonder (left, waiting in the grooming area) to earn her Champion title, making her new CH TullyBloom's Wonder Woman, CGC (having recently picked up her Canine Good Citizen title via parents Eric Phifer and Eric Shreiber). Wonder won her CH title in style, going Best Opposite over the bitch special, with our thanks to Judge Harold Tatro III.  While at the show, Charles also got assistance from friend Lyn Sheridan to get Ready in the performance ring for her third run and third leg to earn her Coursing Ability title (CA ribbons on right above), making her GCH CH TullyBloom's Camera Ready, CA. Our thanks to the A-Team and Lyn Sheridan for helping Charles, Wonder, and Ready bring home two new titles in one day!

TULLYBLOOM'S NEWEST GRAND CHAMPION - KRYPTONITE!
 
At just shy of 14 months of age, CH TullyBloom's Call Me Kryptonite garnered the remaining points (plus some) needed for this Grand Champion title, thanks to the A-Team (Alfonso Escobedo and Ashlie Whitmore), on the second day of the four-day show cluster in Belton, Texas, October 20-23, 2016 (Stephenville and Bell County Kennel Club shows). Kryptonite won Best of Breed all four days under Judges Virginia L. Lyne, Robert E. Hutton, Fred C. Bassett, and Larry G. Kereluke, plus Terrier Group 4 and 3 placements the last two show days.  Kryptonite and Alfonso are shown above receiving the Group 3 win from Judge Larry Kereluke.

CC AND KRYPTONITE RECEIVE WHWTCA ANNUAL AWARDS

We were excited for BIS BISS RBIS Gold GCH CH TullyBloom's Classified Credentials to receive the 2015 Best of Breed Owner-bred Bitch Annual Award from the West Highland White Terrier Club of America at the annual meeting held in October 2016 in conjunction with the national specialty show weekend in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.   This award reflects CC's achievements as a top Westie in the show ring in 2015 (even though she was only shown through the first weekend of March 2015).  

As a special surprise, CH TullyBloom's Call Me Kryptonite received a Bred-by Dog award!  Our thanks to friends for accepting and receiving these awards on our behalf since we were unable to attend the national this year.

SECRET SUPERHEROES DO GOOD IN DALLAS!
 
The Secret Superheroes soared to success during the Lone Star State Classic cluster of shows in Dallas, Texas, July 7 - 10, 2016.  The weekend started with the Trinity Valley West Highland White Terrier Club Specialty and Sweepstakes, where TullyBloom's Superwoman, Yes I Am (Super) was Best In Sweeps under Breeder Judge Darlene Cox Davis.  In the regular classes under Judge Dianne Ivey, TullyBloom's Flash Of Brilliance (below) was Winners Dog from the Bred-by class for a four-point major, TullyBloom's Girl On Fire (Katniss Everdeen) was Reserve from the Bred-by class, and CH TullyBloom's Call Me Kryptonite (pictured above) was Select Dog for a five-point Grand Champion major, defeating top champions.  At the Texas Kennel Club show under Judge Mareth K. Kipp, Super was Winners Bitch and Best Opposite, Flash picked up a second major going Winners Dog and Best of Winners, and TullyBloom's Wonder Woman was Reserve from the Bred-by class.  Wrapping up the weekend at the Trinity Valley Kennel Club show on Sunday under Judge Christine Erickson, Katniss Everdeen was Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Opposite for her second major.  At ten months of age, all five Secret Superheroes are halfway or better to their Championship title, and Kryptonite is already working on his GCH title.

A SUPER DAY AT THE SAN JACINTO KENNEL CLUB SHOW!

We thought the first day at the San Jacinto Kennel Club show in La Porte, Texas, was a good day for the Secret Superhero puppies, with Kryptonite taking RWD and Katniss Everdeen taking a Reserve major from the Bred-by class under Judge Connie H. Clark, but Sunday's show (April 10, 2016) under Judge Carolyn Taylor was super good: TullyBloom's Wonder Woman (below) won her first major from the Bred-by class and TullyBloom's Call Me Kryptonite, above, won his first major (also from Bred-by), then won Best of Breed over three specials, and then went on to capture Terrier Group 3rd! We are very grateful for these honors.
