AKC/ASCA Ch. Milwin's Silver Ribbon at Inkwell ROMX1

Thanks to wonderful puppy owners participating successfully in AKC events, Ribbon has earned the designation of ROMX1 Dam, with puppies that have earned qualifying titles in Conformation, Obedience/companion events, and agility/performance events.
Her certificate!
The title-holders include Ch. Inkwell's Paintbrush of Milwin OA (agility and Ch.)
                                        GrCh. Inkwell's Tom-tom (Ch.)
                                        Inkwell's Imagine That RE, CDX (Rally and Obedience)

Favor (Inkwell Milwin Token of Affection) will be multi-titled in agility in coming months and Thumper will be competing in Obedience as well, and all her puppies will continue their most important jobs, that of companions to their wonderful owners.

some updates

Thumper was at my club (Blue Ridge ASC) shows last weekend where we garnered 4 BOB and 1 BOS win in the 6 shows.

 I also had Luster showing, Milwin Inkwell Iridescent (Satin and Favor's brother). We ended up with WD twice for majors, bringing his  point count up to 13. We were also RWD twice so he had a very good weekend.

Monarch (Milwin's Monarch of Dove Creek), a Thumper son, was RWD at the same shows.

 Also had a visit with friends at a flyball tournament a couple of weekends ago, where I saw another Thumper son, littermate to Monarch, and I could see the family resemblance. Castle is destined for a service/assistance career with his owner.

A couple of weeks ago Lock (Ninebark Cops and Robbers), a Thumper son from his litter by Ninebark (Valerie  Yates) had another Best of Breed win and went on to a Group 2!  Looking forward to seeing him continue his winning ways, mostly owner-handled. I can see his daddy all over this photo, though much more substance, a LOT of dog for 16 months! Lovely dark red coloring too.
