Moonshadow Belgian Shepherds, Australia

Ausralian Champion Moonshadow Black Magic

"Magic"

D.O.B. 31/10/2006

 

Magic had a great time as a show dog with the Moonshadow team as a youngster! Overall, in his first 16 months, he won Best Baby Puppy in the Working Dog Group twice, Best Minor Puppy twice, Best Puppy three times, Best Junior three times, and first in the 6-12 months Sweepstakes six times. He also won Best Exhibit in Group and Runner Up Best Exhibit in Group, and qualified for his Australian Champion Title when less than 13 months old.  Some of the highlights and accompanying pictures are shown towards the bottom of this webpage.

 

After his successful show career, Magic went to live with Rhonda and Richard in Tasmania.

 

Pictures of Magic in his new home are shown below, starting with the most recent.

 

In November 2016, Rob and Lesley were able to visit Magic in Tasmania. Below are some snaps on the day of Magic along with his housemate Tervueren Cali greeting Rob and Les. Magic had recently turned 10 years old but seemed in good health. It was great to see him again, and many thanks to Richard for picking us up at the ship terminal and bringing us home to meet Magic!

In March 2011 we received some photos of Magic and Cali enjoying

a family camping holiday on the far NW coast of Tasmania.

 

First we have Magic and Cali enjoying the beach

Next below are pictures of Magic at the ACTCA Canberra Autumn International Festival, in mid-March, 2007, at 4 1/2 months of age.  We were very pleased that Magic was awarded Best Baby Puppy in the Working Dog Group on both days that he was shown - on 17 March by Mrs Honey Glendinning, a Canadian judge, and on 19 March by Ms Cheryl Egerton, also a Canadian judge.

At the Parkes shows on 9 and 10 June, 2007, Magic won Best Minor Puppy in the Working Dog Group on both days. He also won 3rd place in the 6-12 months Sweepstakes on the first day and 1st place on the second day!  The next set of pictures below is of Magic at 7 1/2 months of age, at the show.

We were also delighted that with his 3 Best of Breed wins at the Newcastle Shows from the 16-18 November 2007, Magic achieved the required number of Challenge Points to qualify for the title of Australian Champion! He was just 12 months and 3 weeks of age!

 

Shown below are pictures of Magic, 1 year old, at the show in Newcastle on 18 Nov 2007

At his first 3 shows in 2008, Magic won Best Junior Dog in the Working Dog Group twice, and on the second time at the Sofala Show on 24 February 2008, he was also judged the Best Exhibit in the Working Dog Group. We were so proud of our boy!


Finally, here is Magic on 8 January, 2007 at just 10 weeks of age

Before we decided on Magic for his name, he was known as "the boy", and earlier puppy pictures of him can be seen in our Puppy Portraits pages and our general Puppy Photos pages.
