who earned her MACH in July 2017

at 16 months old with four majors, a third finished at 18 months old with three majors, a fourth finished with a Best of Breed win over Specials,
and a fifth finished with three majors
.

In the performance arena, one daughter has accumulated numerous performance titles, including making the Agility Top 20 in May 2017,
