King (known to some as Radar) is our pick boy from the Buddy x Ballantyne litter born June 5, 2015.  He was special from birth and I knew he would grow up to be an amazing dog. At 11 months old he attended the CWCCA National and won 1st in 9-12 mth puppy dog sweeps class and 2nd in 9-12 mth puppy dog regular class.  Thanks to breeder judges Dayl Phillip and Kim Shira. 

He grew up in Colorado with his best friend Linda Thompson.  She gave him a great foundation to do it all.  In February 2017, he arrived back at Pawcific while Linda faught her battle with cancer.  My goal when he came back was to make Linda proud and get as many titles on his name as possible.  It always cheered her up to hear how well he was doing.  He gained his International & American Championship in the month of March 2017.  On May 13, 2017 he gained his first group placement, right after coming home from the CWCCA National where he made it down to the last cut as a brand new special.  In October 2017 he went to Canada, gained his Canadian Championship and won multiple group placements. In the middle of his selective show career, he started his lure coursing career and with his friends Kaitlyn & Kathy has gained several titles.  In late 2017/early 2018 he spent 4 months with Megan Sims and learned to love herding and gained his JHD, HT, and PT.  His final big win for Linda was winning his Group 1, piloted by handler Cheyenne Schlecht, at Coos Kennel Club July 12, 2018.  On July 17, 2018 Linda lost her battle of cancer.  King was always Radar to her and she named him rightly, Pawcific I Walk With The King.

I Walk With The King

In sorrow I wandered, my spirit oppressed,
But now I am happy—securely I rest;
From morning till evening glad carols I sing,
And this is the reason—I walk with the King.

  • Refrain:
    I walk with the King, hallelujah!
    I walk with the King, praise His Name!
    No longer I roam, my soul faces home,
    I walk and I talk with the King.

For years in the fetters of sin I was bound,
The world could not help me—no comfort I found;
But now like the birds and the sunbeams of spring,
I’m free and rejoicing—I walk with the King.

O soul near despair in the lowlands of strife,
Look up and let Jesus come into your life;
The joy of salvation to you He would bring—
Come into the sunlight and walk with the King.

Since Linda's passing, I've cut back on pushing King so hard and we have spent some time just being a dog and playing with his favorite toy.  We did go out in September 2018 to Great Falls, MT cluster and I showed him to multiple group placements, OH group placements including a OH Group 1, and earned his CGC so he could get his first level of the Versatility award.  He also was shown to Select Dog at the NWCF specialty under breeder judge Tom Stewart. 

King has always been full of joy, doing his job 120% and not holding anything back.  He makes me smile everyday but I definitely think of Linda everytime he accomplishes another task put before him.  I know she is watching him now from heaven and his biggest fan from up above.  Thank you to Team King with all my heart and his fans who cheer him on.

God bless you Linda.
