A Very Heartfelt Thank You to John & Kathleen Chance for allowing now;
 
Multiple Best In Show Winner
GrCh 'PR' KnD's Blue Cyclone at Lone Oak
&
UCI International Champion KnD's Blue Cyclone at Lone Oak
 
to start out in our conformation conditioning and training program to begin his show career. His continued excellence in the ring, and life success for his owner's truly brings us the greatest joy. We are most honored to be a tiny part of his beginning, and wish them all the blessings in life the heart can hold!
 

A few kind words from the owners,

"I would also like to thank Kimberley Petross for the role she played in training Blue Cyclone for the conformation ring. She was immediately impressed with this little guy the moment she saw him and offered to work with him to prepare him for the ring. As I was in and out of the hospital at the time Kim made her offer I accepted, so she took The Cyclone to her home and began breaking him to lead, to table work, and to the automatic stack on stop commands. She has done a FINE job with this little guy.

I want to thank UKC Judges Dan Crutchfield, Karen Brancheau, and Ann Hearne for recognizing the worthiness of our little dog this past weekend. Each one of these Judges commented upon The Cyclone's musculature and finish (condition). The Cyclone turned one year of age two days before the first show in the past weekend's cluster, and is still not close to the level of refinement he will show when he is mature, but he is fairly ripped. The BEST thing about this little guy is his exceptionally good overall balance and movement that is simply to die for. Put those two ingredients together and shake 'em up and the recipe cannot help but come out a winner!

I know I am bragging shamelessly here, but I just have to make one last comment about the level of competition at the Baytown show...there weren't many RATs entered in the show, but of those that showed up there was a very good Mini male, an exceptionally good Standard male, and an exquisite Standard female that The Cyclone had to compete against in the classes. There was also one Grand Champion that is currently in the Top 10 for the second year running. So...The Cyclone had to pick up each one of his wins the hard way....he had to EARN them!

Kathleen was busy with the details of putting on the show, so I showed The Cyclone myself. I must say that I had a lot of ring rust from over a year of inactivity during my respite from the conformation ring. Despite this handicap, the Cyclone just seemed to laugh as if to say, "Come along Pops..pip pip now!" I know that little dog was laughing his patuty off at me trying to stride out at the pace he wanted to travel at. "

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This past weekend I bundled up a few Rat Terriers and made the trek
to McComb, Mississippi to the 4-show cluster sponsored by the
Mississippi State American Pit Bull Terrier Club.  The three Rat
Terriers I took to this show were all Champions, each with two wins
of the five needed towards their Grand Champion title.  To say that
each one of these dogs is VERY good is like saying that dark brown
chocolate fudge is sweet.  LOL!

UKC CH 'PR' KnD's Blue Cyclone at Lone Oak is a white/blue/tan tri-
colored piebald patterned male of just 17 months of age.  Bred by Ken
