American Canadian Champion Valubal Tumbleweed HIStory
#4 OES in Canada for 2010 (shown as a puppy)
Michael had a short but very successful puppy career in Canada. He won multiple All Breed Best Puppy in Shows as well as many group placements and best puppy in group wins. Even with this very short show career, he placed #4 Old English Sheepdog in Canada in 2010! Michael's Dam and Sire are Best in Show/Best in Specialty Show Winners, so he comes by his success honestly.
Michael was conceived using frozen semen. His sire, Adam, has been gone for many years! Adam was owned by Diane Anderson and we were so very fortunate and honored that she allowed us the opportunity to proceed with this breeding.
Michael is OFA and CERF clear, and has sired 4 litters. From his first litter we kept a puppy who turned out to be a Superstar!! Westen’s formal name is Multiple BIS BPIS BPISS Can GrChEx Valubal Burn Notice CGN. In 2011, Westen was the Top Winning Puppy of All Breeds! He also won 3 All Breed Best in Shows as a puppy.
In June 2012, we took Michael to Minneapolis for the OES specialty and 2 all breed shows. He won a 4 point major and a reserve to a 4 point major. In July 2013, we travelled to Portland where Michael quickly completed his American Championship with a 2 point win and 2 five point majors.
Michael and Gabby had eleven puppies on March 3, 2013. “Martini” finished her Canadian championship in three straight shows at the tender age of 6 ½ months by winning Group 2, 3, and 4, three Best Puppy in Group and a Best Puppy in Show!
