Camper at the 2012 ASCA Nationals - Bakersfield

Ebbtide One Happy Camper shown by breeder co-owner Ann Atkinson
   EBBTIDE ONE HAPPY CAMPER  is just that! Camper, age 2, had a joyful time at the 2012 National Specialy in Bakersfield. In her Rally debut, owner-trainer Maureen McKee-Eidson enjoyed great success in as Camper qualified in all 3 shows (just out of the ribbons in huge classes) to earn her ASCA Rally Novice (RN) degree. All this, and happy, confident and solely postive trained with the clicker.  Huge congratulations and thanks to Maureen for her excellent work and dedication! I'm certain more great things will come in Rally and Obedience with this motivated team.
   The photo above, however, is of her SECOND PLACE win in the American Bred class (20 entries) of the ASCA National Specialty Conformation classes.  I was thrilled to show Camper to this nice win under judge Gail Karamelegos.  Camper started to blow her coat about 2 weeks before Nationals, but we decided to show her anyway.  I'm glad we did!
  Camper and Maureen will be making their AKC Novice B obedience debut in March. If you haven't met Camper, be sure to make an introduction: She's a beautiful, friendly, outgoing and humorous member of the Ebbtide family. Oh, and ask Maureen to show you her bounce.  Camper is from the talented "Camping" Theme litter (what else?!) : Sire by CH Calais Carolina Vintage T-Bird "Vinnie" and out of  Ebbtide As You Wish  "Cali" MultipleGr1BBX.
