We had a great time in Loveland, Colorado at the RRCUS National Specialty held at the Embassy Suites, Loveland.

 

Matt was Best of Opposite Over 50 Handler.  A fun event to kick off the Spcialty with.

 

Rooney was 2nd in her Lure Coursing Stake and got 3 more points.  So proud of this girl.

 

Rooney was also a Top 10 Bitch in Conformation in 2017.  It was sort of a surprise since she was just 2 in June!

Harper, Bindura's Queen of Thorns, JC, made her debut in the Bred By class and looked awesome handled by Matt.  On Saturday she was 2nd in the B BE class of 3 and Sunday she got a hard look by the judge.  She has come a long way!

Rooney, GCHB Bindura's Breaker of Chains, JC, FCAT, was Best of Breed on Saturday.  On Sunday she was Select/BOBOH and ended the week end with an Owner Handled Group 4.  

 

Russet - Bindura’s Ice and Fire at Regal - has been doing great out on the road with her handlers.  Russet has slowly but steadily added points toward her Championship and we expect her to be the next Champion. Way to go Russet. Russet lives with Gails James (Bindi’s breeder) and all of our Regal family in Pennsylvania. 

ROONEY IS BEST OF OPPOSITE AT THE NORTH GEORGIA HOUND SHOW

Perry, GA, April 14, 2018

MEERA IS BEST OF BREED AND EARNS A NEW COURSING TITLE

On April 1, 2018, Meera was Best of Breed at the SSRRC AKC trial and she earned a 4 point major and her last 4 points for her LCX (Lure Courser Excellent) title.  The LCX is an elusive title for most Ridgebacks as it requires a running dog to attain 45 points from the Field Champion class and to stay competitive with the younger, less cheating Open dogs.
