This post is actually long overdue as Cooper finished his championship in November at the Elsie Murray show in Cloverdale BC. The thing that makes it really sweet is that he did it on a Doberman booster weekend, which means that fellow breeders and fanciers get together and "boost" the entry under a breeder judge. They offer prizes and other fun things and work hard to get a good sized entry, which they succeeded in doing.
Cooper has been appreciated by breeder judges in the past as well, having garnered his first points by going best of winners at the BC Doberman Pinscher Club specialty in April of this year. That is the photo of him that I have used here as I think it turned out really well.
When Cooper finished it made him the third dog to finish in a now all champion litter, I'm very proud of them.
The first to finish was BPIS Ch Braebrook's Hennessy "Bravo" who started his career by going best of winners on the BC Specialty weekend in 2011 for five points at just six months of age (he also picked up a best puppy in group that weekend with a total dog entry of about 1200 per day - big show!). Bravo finished his championship with a best puppy in show and a third in the adult group, he also picked up another best puppy in group before that. As an adult Bravo was 1st award of merit at the Doberman National this year in Calgary Alberta.
The second to finish was Ch Braebrook's Remy Martin "Remy" who is also a best puppy in group winner and has many group placements to his credit including a fourth in group at this years Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers show...the largest in Canada. Remy also has nine points including both majors towards his American Championship in only two trips stateside on Specialty weekends!
And the third to finish was Cooper who this post is about. Cooper is working hard in both the obedience ring and tracking field as well and it proving exactly how versatile this breed is. He has even been involved with search and rescue work, putting in a long six hours in inclement weather searching for a lost dog. Cooper also has his Canine Good Neighbour title, and I predict lots of good things coming from him and his hard working owner Nancy. She adores Cooper and has put a lot of time into training him which really shows when you see them together. He only has eyes for his Momma. :)
I am very pleased with how this litter has turned out. The nick between Ch Holmrun's Fred Astaire and Ch Braebrook's Coco Chanel Holmrun has proven to be a good one.
