Bret is from Janelle's only litter, which surprised us with black
puppies. I didn't want a black and white male, but he was
too good to let go as a pet. Bret was over four months old
when he went to live with Gail Shattuck, who
trains him and shows him in a very successful agility career. I
showed him in the breed ring, and later in
Bret won a major reserve
the first weekend we showed him, when he was barely
old enough to walk in the ring. He
started winning in the breed ring as a two and a half year old,
and quickly accumulated 12 points, 1 major. Then I moved
1200 miles away to Colorado, and it became increasingly hard to
get him to the shows. Both Gail and I became
proficient cross-country drivers. Two years, several major
reserves and a lot of miles later, Bret finished in style.
He went Best of Breed over specials for his last major at the
Lost Dutchman KC in Arizona, handled by his new best friend, Ashlie Whitmore.
Three weeks after he finished his championship, Bret picked
up three Select Dog majors in Albany, OR. He is now
needs only a handful of points for his Grand Championship.
has finished his MACH2, and continues to campaign in agility
in California. He is now exclusively owned by Gail,
but we follow his career closely.
