Kassie caught the eye of our good friend Pamela Savoye at the Kansas City shows in March 2016, where she approached us about whether we would consider placing Kassie with her. Much as we loved Kassie and recognized her great qualities, we knew we couldn't keep everything in that great litter!

Pam did Kassie proud, as she took her time in training and limited showing before bringing her back to Kansas City for the March shows in 2017 where Kassie was awarded 4 point majors on Friday and again on Sunday (two other litter sisters took 4 point majors the other two days, while yet a third litter sister who was already a champion went Best of Opposite Sex all four days)!

After finishing her championship the next month, Kassie continued her winning ways with additional Breed wins, Group Placements and by exhibiting with her sister GCH LattaLane's Irish Pot of Gold ("aka "Kerry"), to help their mother CH LattaLane's Wild Irish Rose of Tralee (aka "Tralee") win first place in the 2017 American Boxer Club Brood Bitch competition.
