Rosethorn made a respectable showing at the Central Valley RTC UKC show last weekend.

Arrow got "Winner of Winners" under Judge Daryl Turner. Pinot showed her little heart won her class but did not take a major win. My Rosethorn Charm'n Z Almighty won best puppy under Judge Tracey Kallas and Judge Daryl Turner, and notably got BEST IN SHOW PUPPY under Judge Daryl Turner.  A wonderful time was enjoyed by all, and thank you to the Judges who chose Rosethorn Terriers, and CVRTC for putting on a fun show. A special thank you to my friend Jennifer Ferguson of Indigo Rat Terriers Texas, who is owner of 9 mo. old female puppy Rosethorn Shogun IGO Sadie Mae of Rosethorn Terriers. Jennifer thank you for the wonderful pictures you took of Rosethorn Terriers and extra special thank you to her grand-daughter Nevaeh 8 years old, who was a great help with the dogs.  All Rosethorn Terriers are PLL clear, and we do have puppies, THE DERBY LITTER and THE LUV LITTER BOTH SIRED BY ROSETHORN CUPID'S ARROW, currently available .
