May

Apr - Has started tragically with the loss of Casey, she was my first champion and my constant companion choosing to move into the house way back in 2004 and has never slept anywhere but in the house since. On 22 March Casey became a Great Grandmother to a litter of 3 boys and 2 girls from Amy. For 2 weeks i had 4 generations of my breeding in the house.

Mar - Maggie finally got those last few points. Katie also got her first points. The 31 st March was a big day at the Sydney Royal with Olly, Em, Maggie & Katie all entered. I could not have got them ready without the help of a couple of good friends. The result was outstanding with Katie 1st in class and having to return on General Specials day but unsuccessful on that day. Em 1st in class, Maggie 2nd in Class and Olly did not take out a placing. It was a great moment for me that two of the 4 bitches in the challenge lineup were my mother/daughter team, EM & Katie.

Feb - Maggie was continuing to accumulate points to her title with four Best of Breed awards and one Bitch Challenge & Runner up Best of Breed.

Jan - January was quiet for Rixown Collies, its to hot to show, we only did the Australia Day Show at Erskine Park.

2012

Dec - Amy is still in Sth Australia with Naomi and has attained her final points for her title on the same weekend as Maggie got Best of Breed at Castle Hill and Pippa at her very first show got Baby Puppy in the Non-Sporting Group. Amy will be staying with Naomi till she is mated to Naomi's young boy Sunytime Stepn out in Style (Jaime) who was very successful at the 2012 Adelaide Royal having won Best in Group and 4th to Best in Show.

Nov - Maggie got Best of Breed at Orange DKC both days.

Oct - Archie has gone to live in a pet home in Queensland, i believe he is loving his new life.
October has seen the arrival of a new addition to the family. Her name is Breogan Highwaytoa Black Panda (Pippa) she is a Schipperke, she is a small breed of dog originating from Belgium. She is all black and is a feisty little miss who has fitted in as one of the family very quickly.

Sept - Rixown Collies were not successful at the National Collie Show in Victoria but we still had a great weekend. Katie Kerfuffle certainly made herself known. She could be heard all over the complex. Amy is in South Australia for a while being shown by a fellow breeder. Archie is to be sold and will be moving to Qld to live in the near future. So my yard will be left with Casey, Olly, Em, Maggie and Katie. Its going to feel strange to only have my 5 girls.

Aug - The Junior Kennel Club held its State Final Competition on 5 August and Olly & Maggie were used as swap dogs by two Junior Handlers, very pleased to report that Olly's handler came 2nd in his class. Very proud moment for me to have both my girls so capably handled by these young handlers.

Aug - Amy wins Bitch Challenge and Runner up to Best of Breed at Sydney Kennel Club under a German Judge. It was an amazing day as all 3 of my girls won their classes, i am very grateful to my friends Sheila & Debbie who helped show them in the Challenge lineup. The lineup of 5 bitches and 3 of them mine was a mind blowing event.
