Tidewater Brittany Club Hunt Test
Tidewater, VA

We are extremely proud to announce that "Sparks".......CH.Shomberg's Sparks Will Fly JH has completed his Senior Hunter title with great scores !!!
Handled expertly to his SH title by our friend and professional trainer - handler Scott Edwards of Bayville GSPs........we were thrilled to receive the call to tell us about Spark's new title. There is absolutely nothing that Sparks enjoys more than being in the field with Scott and it is obvious as he just cruises to each title effortlessly under Scott's guidance.

Scott conveyed many great comments and accolades given by the judges and other handlers alike on the abilities and future potential of this very special young dog. With sincere appreciation to Scott, Jeanine and their children for their great care for Sparks in having him in their home and for giving him a second "family". We are excited and look forward to a promising future and more outstanding titles to come for this multi-talented dog who owns our heart.

And now -- it's on to Master Hunter!

Mya & Sparks Advance in Senior Hunter

We are excited to share the news that this weekend .........March 14th. and 15th....two more Monroe/Shain youngsters competed successfully in hunt tests in South Carolina.

CH.Shomberg's Sparks Will Fly JH ( our own "Sparks") earned two more qualifying legs toward his Senior Hunter title and his sister "Mya", CH.Shomberg's One Hot Ticket JH earned her first qualifying leg toward her Senior Hunter title under the expert handling of professional trainer/handler Scott Edwards of Bayville GSPs. Mya is owned and loved by Carl & Kahla Ennis of VA who miss her dearly but also understand that she is having a blast in the field on her "vacation".

We continue to enjoy the calls that come to tell us how well these two youngsters are doing and how much fun they are having in the field. Our sincere appreciation to Scott for his dedication and his professionalism that allow us to know that our dogs are not only well trained but live in a home environment while staying with Scott and his family throughout their training.
No barrels and chains for this trainer/handler who is showing that Shorthairs can be cared for well and enjoy the comforts of a family and home and still do the job they were bred to do.

Thank you Scott !! You are a professional in every sense of the word.

Sharon, Steve, Carl & Kahla

Martini Wins Best of Breed

We are thrilled to share the news that.....

Shomberg's Ultimate Martini........"Martini"
(CH.Wyndbourne Endeavour JH NRD x NSC/BIS/CH.Shomberg's Some Like It Hot ROM )

was awarded Best of Breed from the classes over a current champion at the show in Boca Raton, FL on February 21st. handled by her owner, Barbara Boka.

Barbara commented that it was very exciting to have the opportunity to show her one year old puppy in the Sporting group ring and she and Martini had great fun.
What an honor !!

Congratulations to Barbara who isn't one to pass up "The Ultimate Martini" and we're so happy for her, Dave and of course the beautiful Martini.

Skye Awarded Junior Hunter Title

New Junior Hunter !!!

Shomberg Wyndbourne Skye........"Skye"
( CH.Wynbourne Endeavour JH NRD x NSC/BIS/CH.Shomberg's Some Like It Hot ROM )

Skye sails through to capture her final 2 Junior Hunter legs under the handling expertise of her owner, Sue Harrison at the GSP Club of North Florida hunt tests on March 7th. and 8th. with very high scores of 9's and 10's and 13 finds on the course.

This youngster cleaned out a birdfield that had been deemed "birdless" by some in previous runs and several braces running before her.
Sue declared that there is little that Skye likes more than entering a field filled with live birds and fresh scent that sends her into a frenzy as she dutifully sweeps every objective in an effort to enjoy every minute of her brace.
We expect that Skye will follow in her sister's and brother's path in being the consumate gun dog with Sue at the helm.
Just another example of one of those "show dogs that can hunt".

Sincere Congratulations to Sue & Skye !!!

Beth writes.............
I am so excited to let you all know that today in Greensboro, in Utility B, Devlin got his UD with a nice score of 194.5 and a 4th place. I am STILL flying high, even after the rainy drive home and being really tired. It was great to see some of my old training buddies from NC and to have them there when Devlin put it all together.
