This past weekend, July 20 – 22nd, we had shows in Marietta, GA.  These were IABCA shows.  Friday was a Black Russian Specialty and Saturday and Sunday there were four allbreed shows.  Friday, Riki went Best of Breed over 18 or 19 dogs!  Since she hasn’t been out for almost a year, I was VERY proud of her.  Aeron was Best Junior and Best Bred-by Puppy.  Lockit and Aeron got her first Junghund SG-1 certificates.  On Saturday, both youngsters got their second SG-1 Certificates and Aeron got a third one (Lockit missed the first show that day).  Riki was Best of Breed again on Saturday morning show and went Group 3.  Sunday Aeron and Lockit completed their Junghund National and International Championships and Riki got another Best of Breed and a Group 1!  She earned her Ehren Gold Championship and her Weltschonheits Championship.  Ulyana also earned her International Championship and got two certificates toward her National Championship.  So it was a great show all around.  There will be another Specialty in conjunction with IABCA at Purina Farms in November.  There will be a Judge from Europe who has judged at the World and Euro shows and there will also be a breed survey per FCI rules.  This should be fun and a great learning experience.  If you can make it, please try to do so.  It will be the second weekend in November, I believe.  More on this later.
