was one of those sought-after, perfect days you only dream about.
It was a day that was not supposed to happen, but the dream came true
for 8-year-old Anne of Harmony Farms and Ellen in late September 2003.
Anne had earned her first two legs as a young dog, but became too
sick to continue. When littermate Abby passed away earlier in 2003,
Ellen knew that Anne had already outlived the lifespan the vet had
predicted. Ellen decided to let her very best working dog ever
have one more opportunity to finish her Companion Dog title, and entered
her one day only at the Kennel Club of Riverside held at Lake Perris.
With a group of friends looking on, a tearful Ellen and confident
Anne finished first in their class!
and Sally put the "class" in Classic! CH Nova Scotia Hurricane Waylon
took top breed honors at the 4th annual AKC-Eukanuba Classic in December
2003 and then he and Sally became television stars when they showed
in Terrier Group competition filmed at the Long Beach Convention Center
and televised by Animal Planet!
Christine and Scout make a good team.

dog show ever at the Kennel Club of Palm Springs in January. Maisie
and Irene performed extremely well in a very large Pre-Novice class.
Harmony Farms Hunter and Ellen won Best of Breed at the Kennel Club
of Palm Springs in January. They were selected from a large specials
class by Judge Paul Ross.

Mystic Gypsy Moon, CD, CGC, earned her championship title at the Riverside
Kennel Club show held at the beautiful Lake Perris location in September
2000. Gypsy and Tania are now working on the exercises for the Companion
Dog Excellent title, and attend the Saturday group obedience classes.
and Sally very quickly earned Waylon's Companion Dog title in only
a few weekends. He was high scoring Terrier in all three shows. Waylon
knew his ring exercises well because he has participated in obedience
training group classes with Ellen since his puppyhood. The team is
also working the new "Rally" event competition, and plans to work
toward a CDX.
