My love for Bull Terriers began Sept.25 2005 when my standard BT was born by C-section at the clinic I worked at. 5 days later my life changed forever when I was given the runt of the litter to bottle feed. Audris (Greek meaning "Lucky") , she lived till 14.5 years old and even in her last days continued to make me laugh & love the breed even more. We have had quite the journey over the years! She has taught me how to win graciously and most importantly how to loose with a smile on my face. MBAIS, BVIS, Alt CH, Can CH. Zircons Amarantine Audris RN, CGN, NTD, CRNCL, HIC, CRNT, RA, Am RN, CGC is one of Canada's most titled Bull Terrier in History and the first BT to receive a Rally Advance Title! We have competed in Conformation, Rally Obedience, Agility, Herding, Lure Coursing, and Barn Hunting. Audris was #1 CKC Rally Obedience Bull Terrier In Canada 2012 & 2013 and #1 CARO Bull Terrier in Canada in 2011. She has made me humble in the ring over the years as sometimes her clownish antics would take over and she would thrive on making the crowd laugh rather then clap... but those are the moments I cherish and remember most!
In 2014 an opportunity to own a Miniature Bull Terrier puppy arose... without hesitation Relik became part of the family. BPIS, BBPIS, GCH Varlas Amarantine’s Keepsake RATI had a lucrative show career with multiple group placements in Canada and USA. Relik was #3 Miniature Bull Terrier in Canada 2015, #1 Terrier Puppy in Manitoba 2014, #4 MBT in Canada 2014 and #2 MBT Owner Handler Series in USA 2014. She retired from the show ring in 2015 and has dabbled in barn hunting where she has taken these skills and eliminated multiple weasels from the chicken coop. Relik loves working on the farm from helping bottle feeding calves to putting the bulls back into line. No task is too small or too big and she does everything whole heartily. Relik's learning ability and stamina is admirable, I look forward to adding titles behind her name in the future. Relik is a key member emotional support dog in 2016, my endeavours take me on the road most of the winter season and I can trust her to keep me grounded during the stressful times. Relik is always up for a game of fetch or a game of tug... her favourite toys are mineral bins 3x her size, tennis balls and stainless steel food dishes. Life is always entertaining with this bundle of energy!
