Champion  Mikulov  It  Begins  Again

"Barney"

Barney was the stand out pup from Rebel's last litter.  We were always going to keep the best male as a potential show dog, and Barney stepped up to this role with relish.

Born via caesarean section, there were some touch and go moments, but 7 healthy pups were a happy result.  We sure enjoyed their baby weeks here, before sorting them out and letting them go to their new families.

Barney started out on the Western Circuit of NSW being handled and cared for with great expertise by Aimee, Laura and Debbie Meagher, who put on some great wins.

From outback NSW, Barney went to live in the lower Blue Mountains of western Sydney with Caroline and Brendon Yate, their son Christian and their Huskies.  He took his time growing up, and the very thick  undercoat slowed down the eruption of adult guard hairs for some months.

Which did not detract Barney's quality as he piled up so many lovely wins through his first 6 months in the show ring (till the end of 2013)

Once he earned his Championship title, he went to live with Patrick and Talitha and his half sister Nova, as well as the "old gent" Denver.
