STEELY - NEW GRAND CHAMPION, GROUP PLACER, AND TOP TEN WESTIE - WOW!
  
Steely (now GCH CH TullyBloom's Steely Man America), expertly presented by the A-Team of Alfonso Escobedo and Ashlie Whitmore, picked up five GCH majors, including four Best of Breed wins over other champions at the Claremore Cluster in Oklahoma (March 27-31, 2019), followed by back-to-back group placements in Alabama (see above photo of Steely winning a Terrier Group 3 placement under Judge Jacqueline L. Stacy) for the Tuscaloosa and Birmingham KC shows on April 6 and 7, 2019. Steely won his Grand Champion title on the first day of his third weekend out as a special (a week before his 1st Birthday) during the Peach Blossom Cluster (April 10-14, 2019), winning Select Dog (5-pt major) under Judge Ken Murray at the Atlanta KC show on Wednesday. Steely followed that with Best Opposite Sex the next day under Judge Richard William Powell, then back-to-back Best of Breed wins under Judges Gary Doerge and Col. Joe Purkhiser, and finished the weekend with a Select Specialty win under Judge Wood Wornall at the West Highland White Terrier Club of Greater Atlanta show on Sunday. Meanwhile, Steely made the list of the Top Ten Westies in the U.S.A. (through March 31, 2019). Note that Steely's Aunt Katniss (BISS GCHG CH TullyBloom's Girl On Fire) remains on the list following her retirement after Westminster in February.

TRIPLE B - AKC PUPPY OF ACHIEVEMENT!
  
We are not exactly sure what Triple B (TullyBloom's Just The Best But Better) did to earn this Puppy of Achievement that we received in the mail from the AKC--possibly for achieving back-to-back majors from the 6-9 puppy class--Triple B thinks it is recognition that he is not just the best, but better than the best of puppies! Either way, he is very proud of this achievement, and so are we!

THE "SUPERIOR JUST THE WAY YOU ARE" LITTER DOES LOTS MORE WITH MAJORS IN NAVASOTA
  
The "Superiors" were just that at the Brazos Valley Kennel Club shows in Navasota, Texas, the weekend of March 16 and 17, 2019, with our thanks for ringside support and ring help from Amiko Allen, Ginny Smith, and "Katie". We are also grateful to Saturday's Judge Harold Tatro III and Sunday's Judge Donna Conod for the honors they awarded to our Super X Bruno pups, who swept up majors and reserve majors both days. J'Lo (TullyBloom's Just Won Look) was Reserve on Saturday from the 9-12 puppy class and Reserve on Sunday after winning the Bred-by class. Envy (TullyBloom's Just Envy Me) (pictured above), won the Bred-by class on Saturday and on Sunday was Winners Bitch/Best of Winners/Best of Breed from the 9-12 puppy class over two specials for a 5-point major. Triple B (TullyBloom's Just The Best But Better) was Reserve Winners Dog both days from the 9-12 puppy class, and brother JR (TullyBloom's Just Right) (top two photos) was Winners Dog and Best Opposite over the male special both days for back-to-back 3-point majors from the Bred-by class.

Left to right is J'Lo (TullyBloom's Just Won Look), Envy (TullyBloom's Just Envy Me), Triple B (TullyBloom's Just The Best But Better), and JR (TullyBloom's Just Right).

We are grateful for friends who helped Paula ringside with getting dogs in and out of the ring.

The newest TullyBloom crew showed in the dirt for the first time at the Lomax Rodeo Arena in La Porte, Texas, February 22-24, 2019, for the Gulf Coast Cluster. Steely (TullyBloom's Steely Man America) was Reserve Winners Dog all three days, handled by the A-Team of Alfonso and Ashlie. Paula showed Super's puppies (a/k/a the "Superiors"). Triple B (TullyBloom's Just The Best But Better) (standing with Paula in the photo above) won back-to-back three-point majors from the 6-9 puppy class on Friday and Saturday, at the Galveston County KC show under Judge Robert E. Hutton and at the first San Jacinto KC show under Judge John P. Wade. J'Lo (TullyBloom's Just Won Look)(on the table in the photo above) took Reserve from the Bred-by class on Saturday. Envy (TullyBloom's Just Envy Me) won a four-point major on Sunday at the second San Jacinto Kennel Club show under Judge Melinda L. Lyon, going Winners Bitch and Best Opposite over the bitch special from the Bred-by class. We sincerely appreciate these honors for our puppies, and also appreciate how wonderful these three judges were with our puppies, doing everything possible to make it a positive experience. Our thanks also to Kelli Edell for pitching in with ringside assistance on Friday and Saturday.

KATNISS GETS THE GOLD AND WINS SELECT AWARD AT WESTMINSTER
  
Katniss Everdeen (now BISS GCHG CH TullyBloom's Girl On Fire) ended her show career with two major achievements: winning her Gold Grand Champion title with a Best of Breed major win at the Sun Country Terrier Club show in Phoenix, Arizona, on January 31, 2019, under Judge Loraine Boutwell (see photo below with handler Ashlie Whitmore), and a Select Bitch award at the Westminster Kennel Club show on February 12, 2019, in New York City under Judge Alfred J. Ferruggiaro. Katniss was steered to these wins by the professional "A-Team" of Alfonso Escobedo and Ashlie Whitmore. Alfonso is shown in the photos above presenting Katniss at her final ring appearance on the green carpet at Westminster. Katniss ends her career having defeated other champions more than 100 times (at least 70 of which were major wins).
