New Ariosa Grand Champion!

GCH CH Ariosa Concurrido Chasin Fiesta’s Midnight Rain RA CGC TKN

Rain GCH October 2018
Rain finishes her Grand Championship under AKC judge Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine, October 2018. Owner/Handler/Trainer Colleen Nolan. And happy to be in the picture, too: Breeder Lisa Harper.

At just two years of age, Rain and owner/trainer Colleen Nolan have set the stage. Rain quietly earned her AKC championship in just over a month last summer, took a break, and this autumn quickly wrapped up her Grand Championship. I have a feeling Rain may pop back into the conformation ring for fun every great once in a while, but Colleen and Rain are working on very special competitive obedience plans. Now that her growth plates are fused, Rain is allowed to “chase bunnies” (aka, a plastic bag) in Coursing. She is also proving delightfully impressive in the Rally Obedience ring.

Congratulations, Colleen and Rain!

Rain is out of the incomparable Chase [CH (AKC, CKC) Brasenia Concurrido Chasin Ewe, titles out the wazoo] and the high-drive herding phenom CH Concurrido Dicha Ariosa.
