It has been a while and so much to report!

Sunebank and Caerleon have been out in force this spring, showing at several specialties including the National and a number of all-breed shows as well.

Peter (Sunway Lo-Cash Cowboy), co-owned by Marilyn Feingold and Sunebank, started his show career at the Potomac Valley SSC show with a very creditable 2nd in his sweeps class and 4th in regular classes.

Then Peter went to the ASSA National in April in Perry and had quite the showing. Starting with sweeps he made the cut in a big class as he watched his litter mate Hunter (Sunway Hush Money) go 3rd in the class. But in a bigger regular 6-9 S/W Peter won the class under judge Dorothy Christiansen! Carolyn took him in for the class and Rose Chandless presented him later on in Winners competition where he showed very well. Good boy Peter! We are very proud of this little boy.

Peter's littermate Lana (Sunebank The New Girl in Town) also started her career this spring. At Potomac Valley SSC she went 4th in sweeps and showed very well. At SSC of Greater Baltimore shows she was 2nd in sweeps both days and first in her regular class both days.

Lana also went to ASSA Nationals and was 4th in Sweeps, handled there by her breeder Marni Sharoff.

Riot (Sunebank Caerleon It's a Riot) is doing all sorts of good stuff this year. He started with a specialty major, going BOW at the Three Rivers SSC show in Washington PA under judge Jane Howard. He followed that win with an 'almost', a specialty reserve major under Kim Shive at the Central VA SSC specialties. These were all from the BBX class.

To top it all off, Riot went to ASSA National in Perry Georgia in April and won the BBX class under judge Dorothy Christiansen, handled as always by Carolyn!

Tansy (Caerleon Sunset Sensation) has started to come into her own this spring, winning her first major under judge Larry Stein out of BBX class at the Delaware KC show in York PA in March.

She then traveled to the ASSA National in Perry GA where she went 2nd in 12-18 S/W under judge Glenda Henson. Zana took her into the ring for this outing.

Keira (Sunebank I-Mar Keira) also went to ASSA National and came away with a 4th place in a very competitive Open S/W class under judge Glenda Henson, beautifully presented by Rose Chandless.

Keira continued her good spring by going WB/BOS Saturday and Sunday at the Freehold shows, handled by Rose Chandless. On Sunday she crossed over for the major!

We are very pleased with all these Shelties and look forward to seeing them back in the ring for the summer shows. See you there!
