Epic Head.jpg

This is, indeed, Epic.

She was one of eleven babies born from Baelan's only litter, and stole my heart as soon as she opened her eyes. She is a very smart girl, with flair, style, grace, and most importantly: personality.

Epic came away from her first three shows so much wiser, and with six points toward her Canadian Championship. On just her fourth weekend in the ring, just before turning 8 months old, Epic went in and took Winners Bitch all three days, and Best of Winners twice to officially claim the title of "Champion". She is not only my first dog to finish as a puppy, but she is my first Breeder, Owner, Handled Champion. I am extremely proud of this little girl, and how well she's done at such a young age.

Her first trip down to the States saw Epic taking Reserve Winners Bitch to her mom, and then Winners Bitch the next day, to recieve her first two American points.

On just her second trip to the US, Epic came home with another five points, and one of the required Majors toward her American Championship.

At the Great Dane Club of Canada Western Division Regional Specialty in 2014, Epic took Select Bitch to her brother's BISS, and her sister's BOSS, acquiring the last of her points needed to achieve her Grand Championship.

At two and a half years old, on the back of some hard work by Cody Gagne and Kelly Chappelle, Epic attained her Rally Novice title, the first ValbyDane to ever do so.

I must express the hugest of thanks to Peggy Mignon of ValbyDane, not only for allowing me to be so involved with this litter of puppies, but for Epic. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for this puppy. I have never had a dog respond to me the way she does, or work in the ring as well. She has made me a better trainer and handler, and I am so proud to call her my little girl.
