and this time In Black
Introducing my new boy
CH Regalane’s Kool
...made his debut in
conformation Saturday, June 11, 2016 at the Puyallup
Valley Dog Fanciers show. Handled as always by Luke and
Rowan Baggenstos and their team, Luka won the breed
under Judge Richard Lewis and topped the day off in the
Working Group with a Group 3 placement under respected
Judge Bonnie Linnell Clarke. What a fabulous start to
this young dog’s career!
Luka finished his championship in just 5 shows and is
currently # 2 in the breed and #2 all breed with limited
showing. He has also earned 5 working group placements
to date under respected judges: Bonnie Linnell Clarke
(Group 3 – Puyallup Valley Dog Fanciers), David R. Denis
(Group 4 – Portland KC), Sharol Candace Way (Group 4 –
Portland KC), Wanda V. Spediacci (Group 3 – Gig Harbor
KC), and Wendy G. Willhauck (Group 3 - San Joaquin KC).
Luka’s sire is my very own Lukas, Multi BISS AKC Silver
Grand Champion/Canadian/International Champion Oakwood
v. Kaitlers ReVival (the top winning German Pinscher in
AKC history) and his dam is Champion Regalane’s Elegant
Lady, CD, BN, CGC aka Ellie. Needless to say Barbara
Lane (his breeder) at Regalane German Pinschers and I
are so very proud of this boy and look forward to
showing him over the next few years.
Luka’s most recent group placement was on Nov. 28, 2016
at the San Joaquin Kennel Club, Inc. where he took a
Group 3 under Judge Wendy G. Willhauck (pictured below).
My boy Luka has been
busy showing the past couple of weeks, winning Best of
Breed at shows in California and Washington and adding
two more group placements to his record — a Group 3
under Judge Wendy G. Willhauck at the San Joaquin Kennel
Club show on Nov. 28th and a Group 4 under Judge Jan C.
Sigler at the Greater Clark County Kennel Club show on
Dec. 10th. Since entering the ring this past June, Luka
has continued to improve and mature and absolutely loves
the show ring just like his daddy, Lukas. He will finish
the year as the #2 German Pinscher in both breed and
all-breed (AKC), which is outstanding given his limited
amount of showing (just 6 months) in 2016. Huge thanks
to Luke and Rowan Baggenstos for their expert handling
and love of my boy. Team Baggenstos is the best!!
Luka had another amazing
weekend winning Best of Breed over great entries all 4 days at
the combined Mount Rainier Working Dog Club and Olympic Kennel
Club shows. He finished his AKC Championship (pictured
above) the first day and
was moved up to the specials ring for the remainder of the
shows. He is well on his way to earning his Bronze Grand

major September 19, 2015 at the Gig
Harbor Kennel Club Show under Judge Lisa
R. DeRoulet. Layla, who is just 9-months

with her exceptional conformation, fluid
movement and fun-loving temperament.
