More Show News!

We are home from our very successful show trip to Washington. Zoey's littermate, Zed Dawson, was first or second in a large Open Dog class each of the three days, and yesterday he was Reserve Winner's Dog. I showed Glitterati Cooper Whitby in the Bred-by class and he placed in lovely classes two of the three days, including a second place today.

It was clearly Zoey's weekend -- the first day she was second in a very strong Bred-by class, and then yesterday she was Winner's Bitch for the five point major which finished her championship; she was also Best of Opposite Sex. Here are a couple of pictures from yesterday...

Now that Zoey is a champion (cross that 2011 goal off the list :) she can be shown in the Best of Breed class so I moved her up for today's show. This allows her to compete for points towards a Grand Championship, also one of the 2011 goals. The Grand Championship requires a total of 25 points and three "major" wins -- it is kind of complicated but that is the gist of it. Here is the line-up in the Best of Breed class today -- we are right in the middle...

ChZoey, as she prefers to be called now, was selected as Best of Opposite Sex and earned a five point major towards her Grand Championship -- a most excellent way to end the weekend :)

The Washington berner club, which supported the entry at this show weekend, is a GREAT group of people and that makes this particular show very fun and well worth the trip no matter how it goes -- it is also great to hang with friends so thanks to Jennifer for making the trek with Cooper :)
