|#1 - GCh. Lowdown Remys Girl V Ardenhout
Breeders: Janine Starink & Lisa Hawes | Owners: Linda Low, Janine Starink & Lisa Hawes | Handler: Janine Starink
Most memorable wins: In a year like this one, there are so many that meant so much to us, but I would have to say there are definitely two that stand out. First and foremost, winning the Alberta Kennel Club show not once, but twice! 800 dogs! WOW! That moved Abbey to the #1 spot, all breeds, where she manage to stay for the rest of year! Second would be in Colorado, where Abbey won the breed not once, but twice, on the American National weekend and then went on to win Best in Show over 1,500 dogs! Again WOW!
Funniest story: This has to be from Shannon Scheer, who handled her occasionally for me. The first time Shannon took Abbey home with her, I neglected to mention that Abbey is a Houdini and knows how to open most gates. Arriving late after a show, Shannon lets all the dogs into individual runs, while she goes to the kennel room to prepare their meals for the night. When she opens the kennel door, low and behold, ALL of her dogs are standing there, with Abbey in the middle wagging her tail! Abbey had let not only herself out but all the other dogs as well!
