The following day, April 12, 2003
Gracie competed as a Champion for
the first time.  Sacramento Kennel
Club was the venue, Charlotte
McGowan was the judge.  Gracie
went Best of Breed over many of
the top Scotties in the country.  So it
was on to the Terrier Groups ring
for the first time ever....was Larry
ready for this pressure?
Well, as you can see, Larry was
up to the pressure.  Gracie took a
Group 3.  She and Larry both
performed like pros.....beating
many of the top Terrier handlers
in the country.  This was a very
prestigious win under Betsy Dale,
who is a very well known Terrier
judge.  Gracie beat 373 Terriers,
placing her in the Top Ten All
Breed statistics and Top Ten
Scottish Terrier in the country.
Gracie continued to compete in the All Breed show ring until August of 2003,
maintaining her Top Ten Status in All Breed and Scottish Terrier Breed
numbers.
In September of 2003 she was semi-retired to have her first litter of puppies.  
She was bred to the Best of Breed winner of Montgomery County Kennel
Club October, 2002, CH Whiskeybae Wager of West pride, "Maverick."  
Gracie maintained her Top Ten Status even though she was taking care of
her puppies.  She finished 2003 as #11 Scottish Terrier All Breed, #5
Scottish Terrier Bitch in the country.
A Special thanks to Ron and Maurine McConnell who sold us this beautiful
bitch ( and spent many hours mentoring us on handling, grooming and many
other things too numerous to mention), Brenda Miller & Maurine McConnell
who bred her, Gary and Kim Stroede whose male "Dylan" sired her, and the
many people who encouraged us along the way.  It was quite a ride.  Gracie
was shown in limited venues for a number of years.....see her beautiful
puppies on this website.                 ......
