Ellie | GCH Barrett’s Star Elliphant Act – Age 4
DOB: October 8, 2014
Owner: Mara Wildfeuer and David Crone
Elliephant was “Elliephant” out of the 2014 Torque x Friday litter (yes, creative name, we know). As a youngster, Ellie was bounced around, a LOT! This was intentional; we wanted her to be a well-rounded and well-adjusted little pup. And that, she is! At 7 months of age, Ellie became the third show-pointed pup out of the Circus Seven litter by picking up a 5-point Major in Vallejo, CA, with me on the other end of the lead. By May 2016, Ellie had completed her Show Championship with FOUR Majors (5pts, 4pts, 4pts, 3 pts). These days, Ellie is living in Northern CA with her half-sister Tule and human brother, Douglas. Mamma Mara has lots of big competition obedience and agility plans for her.

In January 2016, we began putting him on birds to get him ready for Puppy Stakes at the local field trials. In February 2016, Ticon was entered in his first field trial stake and did a respectable job. A couple months later, he earned a Prize I (110) in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test with Halit. In Summer 2016, Ticon spent Summer Camp with Kim Sampson in Utah. In late Autumn, Ticon was sent to Diane/AlphaDog and made an appearance at the 2016 National Field Trial in Ardmore. Ticon came home with a Third Place ribbon in the Open Derby! In January 2017, Diane steered him to a First Place ribbon in the Open Derby stake at the Grand Canyon Brittany Club in Arizona. A month later, Ticon earned a Fourth Place ribbon in the Open Derby stake at the 2017 WCA Western Classic. He also picked up a Second Place in his Field Futurity.

Tennessee | CH HighPoint’s Shotgun Boogie to Barrett – Age 3
DOB: May 4, 2016
Owner: Garret Andersen
Tennessee (Waltz v. Anson Logan x TopHat Story) , or “TennTenn,” is an incredibly sweet girl who comes to Barrett from friend and breeder, Lani Jones of HighPoint Weimaraners. A beautiful girl, Tenn finished her show career with THREE Major wins!! She was supposed to be my “next Special,” but Tenn had other plans. LOL! While I was busy working, focusing on other pups, and getting ready to move from California to Utah, Tenn spent a lot of time as a youngster with my friend Garret and his boy, Blue. Over time it became obvious that Tenn identified Garret as her dad, and Blue as her brother, so these days, I’ve officially lost custody of her so the trio of them live together in Boulder, Utah. The good news is that Garret still shares Tenn with me, so she spends a fair amount of time at my house, too. Although retired from the show ring, Garret also has plans to enter her in a few AKC hunt tests. Special thank you to Holly as well, for showing Tennessee to MANY of her CH points this past year.
