Amelia was given Best of Breed against a very competitive group.  Amelia and her ‘person’ Lauren Hay-Lavitt then went on to win the Herding Group under Judge Ms. Gloria Kerr.

Ms. Kerr remarked on Amelia’s movement, she stated “she just floats around the ring.”

First time in the best in show ring and Amelia kept showing her socks off.   She loves the clapping!

NEW TITLE:   Grand Champion Sengalas Amelia McCrystal

Grand Champion takes 25 points and 3 majors.  This is something that Amelia and I have been working on the past 2 years.
