The Atlanta shows were a big success. Riki won Select two days, BOS one day and Best of Breed one day. She was the only special to win something every day. She also earned 19 more grand champion points, leaving her only 1 point shy of her bronze level Grand championship. Ulyana – who was not even 14 months – managed to get her first major and win over champions for five points toward her Grand Championship. This was her first time out as a special. With 8 champions there including 5 bitches, this was quite a feat! She was even considered for Best of Breed (but big sister Riki beat her out).
Each of the babies went for one day, and they made many new friends and started “learning the ropes” for dog shows. Mel had Nicholas there and Kahla and G brought Heiress, so we were having a puppyfest! Lots of fun.
A big congrats also to Ugo, Ulyana’s brother on his two majors and a Best of Opposite Sex over three of the top male specials in the country. A really great win. Also to Saint, owned by Pat Archer, who was Select three of the days. With so much good competition, any win was a real feather in the cap!
