Pete Adrian Culumovic: Diamond was born at Laureate in Ottawa, Canada and acquired as a young puppy by Kenji Shigi of Osaka, Japan.
As with all of our dogs, Sydney’s journey with Diamond began at an early age. The mutual sparkle in their eyes was evident right away, and it was fun to see their connection grow. After a successful puppy season, Sydney and Diamond spent a lot of time chilling and hanging out during Covid. Finally, shows started up again, and fun in the ring returned, with touring across Canada and the USA together, culminating in Diamond’s Canadian campaign in 2022.
Diamond’s show highlights include:
2019 - Canadian Multiple Best Puppy in Show wins and US Specialty Majors as a puppy
2021 - American National Winners Bitch and Best of Winners
2021 - 4 American Bests in Specialty in one weekend
2021 and early 2022 - USA Number 5 in Sheltie all-breed ranking in limited showing
2022 - 12 Best in Show, 18 RBIS, 79 Group Firsts, 2 Bests in Specialty, new Annual Points Record for Shelties
2022 - # 1 Sheltie # 1 Herding # 6 Amongst All Breeds
Our sincere appreciation to the judges for recognizing Diamond’s beauty and conformation, and awarding her so highly. Thank you, Sydney, for being our partner in the selection, training, care, and presentation of our Shelties. Thank you, Kenji Shigi, for your ongoing support and friendship, and good luck with Diamond in Japan.
