Congratulations to Bronte (Aust CH AlpyneAir Southern Cross) who became an Australian Champion @ 17 months. This is quite a compliment due to the dog show format in Australia – current Champions must compete in regular classes to advance to BOB (see Retriever Life article here). Bronte is also in the Top 50 of the GunDog group in South Australia. Her proud parents are Ella (Aust CH Kirkdell Destined To Be) and Zeus (BISS Am GCH/ Can Ch Gingerbred Celestial Thunder JH, CGC). Her brother, Eli (AlpyneAir Thunder Down Under) is showing wonderfully, on the heels of his sister, and is also in the Top 50 of the GunDog group.
Great job, Scott and Bridget Washington (breeders/owners/handlers) who saw something in our boy, Zeus, and are having a blast with his pups. Thanks for giving Zeus his first Australian Champion – very exciting!
