Sage stood beautifully for examination by the judge. Such a sweet, pretty girl!
Gina and Nichole looked like pros in the show ring. No one watching would have guessed it was the first show for both of them.
Hula, Gina, and Sage lined up for their ribbons! So wonderful to see these 3 confident, happy, beautiful puppies in the ring together.

The Goin' Coastal litter arrived at 3AM June 17, 2021 by C-Section.
ZZ presented us with ten healthy puppies, 8 girls and 2 boys. The pups went to their forever homes in mid-August, except for Hula, who is staying here with us.
Maggie - 7 weeks
Our beautiful girl, ZZ was a wonderful mother to this litter. Four years old, ZZ is healthy, beautiful, athletic, smart, and goofy. She was a wonderful mother.
ZZ was born here in our home, when we whelped the Aux Lake Z litter. She was born in the same room and whelping box where she raised her own puppies.
Taking care of 10 puppies was a big job. ZZ was a devoted, loving mom who took excellent care of her pups. She gave them a great start in life.
Five years old, handsome, athletic, healthy, and sweet, Rocky proved to be a great choice to sire this litter.
Rocky is a Silver Grand Champion. He also loves hunting and is in training for his NAVHDA UT test. All owner handled.
Rocky makes himself at home when he comes for visits. We were so glad he and his owner, Shona Welle, came to join us on puppy go-home day.
We're very proud of the success of first time owner/handler Nichole Gregory's success with the beautiful Lone Ridge Gina Marina.
Gina has also earned 3 AKC JH legs, handled by Nichole's son, Nolan.
In addition to earning an NA prize, Lola goes to work with Karl at the Haycamp Brewing Company in Rapid City, SD.
Professionally handled by Colin Pugsley, Lone Ridge Big Sure Bella earned an NA prize and displayed intense drive and ability.
Hula's performance in the field was stellar. She hunted and pointed like a rock star!
Hula's track was fantastic. She tracked her pheasant, pointed the pheasant at the end of the track, caught the pheasant on the ground, and retrieved it to hand.
Hula doesn't love the water. She'll chase a duck, but retrieving a bumper from water doesn't interest her. She didn't swim, so there was no NA prize for us. We're ready to move on to advanced training for the next test level.
