Winsome trooped north to Airdrie, Alberta, Canada and NavyRose Kennel to show at the Canadian Silken Windhound Society’s inaugural Canadian Specialty. Wow, they did an amazing job and we were so impressed with how well it was all handled.
Winsome did very well at the show and took home a lot of beautiful ribbons and fabulous prizes.
Show 1 - Judge Merla Thomspson
- Olive – She won her class and took Reserve Winner’s Bitch
- Kenan – He won his class, took Winner’s Dog, and was chosen Best of Winners. This finished his ISWS Championship!

- Katherine – She won Brood Bitch with Mipha and Yuna showing as her progeny.
- Friends – Maia and Dante won the Canadian Bred Class and went on to get Reserve Winner’s Dog! Pauline and Podzol won the Field Performance Champion class (a triumph for a dog who does not like to show, haha).
