Turner - GCH Margaux's Venture Capital
What a fabulous year end for Turner. The culmination of his specials career was his Best in Show in September and winning the Top Twenty competition at the national specialty in October. Receiving all-breed recognition is fabulous but winning the competition of the best dogs in the country is over the moon. How exciting! Thanks to team Turner -- sponsor Priscilla Martin and handlers Doug and Mandy Carlson. Turner finished 2010 as the #2 dog in the US, with his career total of 1 best in show, 8 group wins and 33 other group placements. His easy going demeanor will be welcome when he returns home.

Gracie - GCH Margaux's Saving Grace
A Gunner daughter in distress -- oh no! Grace flew back to Illinois after a nasty divorce and suicide situation in Texas where she was living outside in the summer heat. Her strong personality withstood her living conditions better than her appearance. It took a bit to grow the coat again and get her in condition, but she decided to shine in the show ring! Priscilla Martin placed her with handler Laura King and Gracie went on to garner some nice Group wins and placements plus select bitch at the National Specialty and Best of Breed at the NE Illinois Specialty. What a come back and what a nice team!
