Malynn has been showing in juniors the past 3 years in AKC and has been ranked #4 Cavalier Junior Handlers in 2008, #5 Cavalier Junior in 2009, and as of April 30th, 2010 she is the #2 Cavalier Junior. Malynn shows her Cavalier, Am/Can CH Ringhill Heir to the Throne, “Khovu.” Malynn started showing in Canada when she was 4 years old in the Pee Wee class and gradually moved up to showing in the US by helping her sister, Julia in the breed ring. One of her favorite memories is when she won her 1st All Breed Best Junior last year in Great Falls, Montana. (See Picture) Outside of showing dogs, Malynn also raises and shows Guinea Pig. She has even attended the National Guinea Pig Show in Ellensburg, WA the past 3 years. Thousands of Guinea Pigs come each year to this Crufts like Guinea Pig Show. Malynn also has several Best in Show Guinea Pigs. She would also like to thank all her Mentors; her mom, Verlynn, dad, Dave, Carol Woodward PHA, Dr. Cindy Bishop DVM, and her sister Julia.

Malynns Philosophy: I show in juniors because I love the bond you create with your dog, the friends you meet, and the places you see.
