CAL in CANADA
We tried to warn his unsuspecting co-owner what AWESOME potential we see in this young man. He has been the stand-out Personality in the Spirit litter from the beginning...
*Best of Breeds from classes
*multiple puppy group, and adult-group placements, including Best Puppy In Group at Edmonton 2003.
Quick to credential both ends of his name, :) Karin and Cal earned
Obedience ranking, his Canadian CD and two legs towards his
namesake and grandfather,
CH Caralon's Yud B Our Robin, CDX
at 10 weeks...

CAL in KANSAS
Cal's American debut... a short 5 days after stepping off the plane from Karin..
His next show out, Cal won his first AKC major, by going WD / BOW under Mr. Charles Trotter in Lincoln NE.
Cal has three AKC BOBs from the BBE under herding breeder judges Teddy McDowell, Harlowe Jahelka, and Beth Lachnitt.
Cal and I stepped into BredBy at the 2005 PWCCA National with breed friends, idols & icons. He was my first national specialty exhibit-- and we even got a look and a smile from judge Diane Dickinson as she made her placements. THAT made my heart flutter! Anne Bowes made my national with kind comment after the class.
His next show out, Mar.'06 Columbia, MO--the four point major in dogs was awarded by Mr. Paul Thomann, to finish Cal here in the states.
Every Outing with Cal is a "Performance"...
American CD in July 2005,
three consecutive shows with a 189.5, 192 + 4th placement, and 192. Judges and spectators alike cheer on his body-slamming recalls and mid-air celebrations of a job well done.

first American CDX leg came in at 193.5 for third place and a Front
and Finish Honorable Mention in Des Moines, IA, with Karin able to look
on--visiting the weekend prior to the St Louis National. He was a
phenomenal worker, with a spirit that simply would not be missed or
overlooked. He made sure.
Cal and the Long Sit were mortal enemies... he would be winning
Open B easily before laying down at the last 10 sec. of the sit... despite
any classes, proofing, and BEGGING we'd do. One of Cal's final
acts on earth was proofing that damn stay for the Wichita
weekend. I was certain we were going to nail it and within the
same month he'd finish his CH and his CDX.
