2012 BTCA Specialty Achievements, Oconomowoc WI, June 10-14, 2012

2010 Border Terrier Canada National Specialty Weekend Success - Jerseyville ON - June 25

Maggie lived up to her "Lust for Life" name making the most of every opportunity as a veteran in the US

At the Specialty Earthdog Test she ended a 2 year hiatus by qualifyng in Junior (judge Mary Opperman) then brushing off the dirt and donning her show collar she placed fourth in a strong 7-10yrs Veterans Sweeps class under breeder judge Kathy Robinson.

She followed this up by winning the Veteran Bitch class at MKC (judge Marg Pough) and put the icing on the cake by completing her AKC Junior Earthdog title at the National ED Test the following day (judge Sharon Yon)

Not just a fluke

Maggie demonstrated that her earthwork in the States was not just a fluke by earning the first leg of her CKC JE Title at the Cairn Terrier Association of Ontario ED Test on June 23, 2007 in Moffat, Ontario (Judge Jean Callens)

The Princess gets her feet dirty!

Maggie showed her true Border Terrier colours by earning her AWTA Certificate of Gameness at the American Teckel Club Test on May 28, 2006 in Crosswicks New Jersey under judge Teddy Moritz.

No. 5 Border Terrier in Conformation in Canada for 2003

Although Maggie was only shown to the completion of her Canadian Championship, she racked up enough points (based on dogs beaten) to receive a certificate from the CKC announcing that she was in the 2003 Top 5 Border Terriers in Canada.

Way to go, Maggie!

In the absence of breed competition, Maggie earned her Canadian Championship the way so many Jansim pups and grand pups have done before - the hard way. She started out with a Terrier Group 3rd at the Moncton Kennel Club Show in New Brunswick on May 04, 2003

This set the tone for the following shows.

In Anna's words: "A totally shameless brag...Maggie won 3rd in group TWICE today at the Tantamar Kennel Club shows (Amherst,N.S.) She now has 5 points. Judges comments- very nice dog- I would like to see her when fully mature - very cute Border Next shows in Dartmouth May 31/June 1 ....but I will go with no expectations...anything can happen good and bad"

Maggie was shown three days with the following results:
Day 1. Max Madger -gave her BOB + group 2nd - Laurinda (handler) said he was EXTREMELY complimentary of her head, coat , pelt - exactly as should be he said, Laurinda said he was very gruff so was surprised at the praise he heaped upon her
Day 2. James Reynolds - BOB over Sr. puppy male - Jim was very complimentary of her head
Day 3. Margaret Robertson - Oh Well - you can't win them all.
This puts Maggie just one or two points shy of her Canadian Championship.

In August, Maggie "put it to bed"!

In St.John.NB on August 18th and 21st, 2003, Maggie earned group 2nds under judges Bud Haverstock and Charles Bett to be officially known as Ch. Falconbrook Lust for Life (Roger and Copper are the proud parents).
This makes four out seven pups from this litter finished in Canada - he other three were never intended to be shown.
