It’s been a good month for Clifftops Lakeland Terriers! My new girl, Well-Red Clifftops Sweet Calpurnia, co-bred and co-owned with Demonica Baker, made her show debut at Columbia Terrier Club in Maryland, where she got a 4-point major and a Group 4 in an enormous puppy group. She got her second major the next day, and finished this past weekend in Gray Summit with 5 straight days of breed wins over a special.

Meanwhile, my retired showgirl Precious (BISS GCH Delzar Sweet Sin-Sation) gave birth to 4 healthy puppies on June 1.  Sire is Can CH Northcote Alliance.  Still making decisions on placements.
