Sir Frances Drake Kennel Club Show in Marin

Hummer wins Best Opposite Sex on Saturday to his beautiful litter sister Jolie (Ch Karazan I'm No Angel'ina Jolie), who won the Best of Breed title at the Sir Frances Drake Kennel Club show in San Rafael. Thunder and lightening threatened to create a downpour all day but left just traces of rain and a humid cloudy day most of the day. Very happy that the cooler Fall Season has arrived, Hummer will spend the next few weeks preparing for the Regional Specialty in Dixon where Newfoundlands from as far as Washington State will participate in a very exciting day of competition. Winning the title of Best in Specialty Show (BISS) is a great honor and one that Hummer's Sire, Gaia, was fortunate to win in a Specialty in Southern California. Hummer will be one of many Karazan Newfoundlands competing in Dixon for the various titles including Best Puppy, Winner's Dog, Winner's Bitch, Best of Breed, or Best in Specialty Show, and Best Veteran.

Soaring on Sunday

Flags were flying again for Hummer who on Sunday wins the Best of Breed title at the Redwood Kennel Club in Petaluma, California. Amongst a very competitive group of gorgeous Newfoundlands, Hummer loomed boldly and large and gated with massive strength under the expert and graceful handling of Jeff Heim. Enjoying the fanfare and fun of the show atmosphere with all the attention and opportunities to share the day with friends and other K9's, Hummer looks forward to his next show in San Rafael this coming weekend.
