CopperRidge Ridgebacks is so very proud of all of our puppies! We have had some wonderful wins in the Puppy Sweeps events at recent shows. Puppy Sweeps are not held at every show and have to be a sponsored event usually held at a RRCUS supported entry. You generally find the judges for Puppy Sweeps are Ridgeback breeders so it is especially nice to know your dog is being recognized by a fellow breeder.
Just this past weekend – July 31 & Aug. 1 – Cody (CopperRidge Fire and Ice) took Best in Sweeps and Best of Opposite Sex in Sweeps in Waukesha, WI – thanks to Breeder/Judges Celia Hoffman and Glenn Hoffman. Cody is from the Jessie x Rowan litter of Sept. 2009. It should be noted this is his SECOND Best is Sweeps win! He also won Best of Opposite Sex at a show in May. Congratulations to owner Judy Henke!
Speaking of the Jessie x Rowan litter – there is ANOTHER Best is Sweeps winner! Howie (CopperRidge Fire Under Control) was Best in Sweeps at the Arizona Ridgeback Specialty in April of 2010. Thanks to Breeder/Judge Marco Solorio and congrats to owner John Kelly!
Lastly, from the Chris x Hannah litter, Haley (CopperRidge One Fell Swoop) has won Best in Sweeps at the OCRRC Specialty (Thank you Breeder Judge Eileen Bailey) and back to back Best in Sweeps at the Colorado Springs shows (Thanks to Breeder/Judges Debra Driza and Susan Mellonee). Congrats to owners Stephen and Jaimie Hovenac.
