Emmy is Red Girl from the Bacardi x Chopper litter and is owned by Barbara and Eamon Dillon, Elyria, Ohio and co-owned with Sarron. She was my pick from a very
young age and is a good sized girl, standing 24" tall and has a TON of coat!
Emmy grew up in Alabama and studied agility, rally and obedience and then when she was 3 yrs old,
came back to Sarron to spend a few months getting her championshiop. She came back right after Memorial
Day 2011 and finished her AKC Championship with 4 majors and several Best of Breeds from the classes.
She also picked up a Group placement the end of August 2011 before she went back to Alabama on Labor Day.
That, my friends, is a pretty quick and impressive show career for EMMY!
Emmy returned to Sarron in June 2012 to spend some time with us and have some babies! Emmy is a great dog!
She is a big girl, with effortless movement and coat to die for. More importantly, she has a fabulous
temperment and is easy to live with. She and Cara are BBF (Best Belgian Friends) and she gets along
well with her brother, Jackson, her mother, Bacardi, and her cousin, Star.
Thank you to Cathie Lang for letting Emmy come back and work on extending her show career as well as mother hood!
Emmy came into season the day before Thanksgiving 2012! She was bred to Ch. Sarron Sunset Surfbreaker (Breaker) on
November 28th but the breeding resulted in no puppies. We will try again on her next season.
Emmy went up to spend time with my good friends, Barb, Brendo and Eamon Dillon in May of 2013. She
went up to Cleveland to work with Eamon as his juniors dog during his last summer of Junior Showmanship.
Emmy won EVERYONE's heart though, and since she has been up with the Dillons, has garnered MANY Best of Breed
Wins (including the first day of the large Canfield Cluster in Aug 2013) and has all her majors to gain her
Grand Championship title!!!.. She fits in well, and will likely stay with the Dillons as she is working on
a couple of herding titles, completing her Grand Championship and may even go back and work on some agility
moves. Emmy is a JOY to have around and we plan to breed her in the Winter of 2013 to the very handsome and
talented Hondo! Emmy is co-owned by Barb, Eamon Dillon and myself.
Emmy picked up her PT (Pre-Trial) title with limited training in October 2013. She's also picked up 19 of the
25 pts that she needs to complete her Grand Championship as of the end of October 2013. Emmy is continuing to
take herding lessons with the goal of attaining her HS (Herding Started) title and maybe even a "Tending" Title!
Go Barb and Emmy!!!!
Emmy finished her Grand Championship in November 2013 and has picked up many more Best of Breed, Best of Op and Select
wins through March 2014. Emmy had a GREAT Showing at the Louisville, KY Cluster in March 2014 - picking up 2 Select Bitch
wins and a Best of Opp at a BSCA Supported Entry on Friday!!! Emmy now has 59 of the 100 GCH points that she needs to earn
her Bronze Grand Championship!!! GO EMMY AND BARB!!!! Once the weather clears up, Barb and Emmy will start
herding practice again, in hopes of picking up her HS this year! And, hopefully Emmy will give motherhood a
try in 2014 as well!!! I am SO PROUD of Barb and Emmy and all they have accomplished so far!
Emmy and Barb are cleaning up in the show rings in the Spring of 2014. Emmy picked up Back to Back Group 3's at the Columbus
Ohio Cluster in April and then a FABULOUS Group 2 in Tallmadge Ohio in May 2014! WAY TO GO EMMY AND BARB!!!

Emmy and Barb went out to the Lousiville Cluster, March 2016 and had a GREAT SHOWING!! Emmy showed in Veterans all weekend - it's

We are now in 2020 and Barb and Emmy are still showing and having a great time! The AKC created an Owner Handled Grand Champion program this year with similar award levels (bronze, silver, gold, platnum) as the
regular Grand Champion program. They are also grandfathering dogs into this program from the inception of the Owner Handler program in 2012. This year, Emmy will be recognized as an Owner Handled Grand Champion Silver
winner as well as receiving her Hall of Fame award at the National this year!! Emmy is SUCH an overachiever and has been a great "first Belgian" for Barb. I wish them many more happy years together.
Emmy and Barb has worked on Emmys' BCAT on and off for a while and just in August 2020 - Emmy earned her BCAT at 12 1/2 years old! Emmy still loves to go and compete in what ever Barb offers her.
