I knew he was something special for a long time now, in UKC he finished to his Grand Champion title with ease. My 1st love though is performance, be it obedience, agility, rally and even weight pull. What a thrill it was to have him show such potential in performance as well. He really proved a conformation dog can be a performance dog at the Bettendorf, IA show this past March 1, 2014, when he stepped into the breed ring against a number other beautiful Papillons. We had showed earlier in Rally and finished 1st in his class with a 99, and the point off could have been caused by me, so when he took BOB I knew we had earned a “ Total Dog “ award. His 1st of this year.
He ended up with a Group 1 in both shows so he went on to BIMBS. What a wonderful honor being awarded “Reserve Best in Multi Breed Show”, and in “Both“ shows that day…. It wasn’t over yet… after everything was figured out in the performance event, not only did we earn a “ Total Dog “, we earned ”High in Trial”….
It wasn’t until later that night at the hotel I realized it was my little leap year puppy’s 2nd birthday…. And I was the one who got all the presents…
Thank you so much Judge's Jeanne Heger and Heidi Halverson
Also Kathy Davidson for Rally
He ended up # 3 in 2013 Top Ten and # 4 in Rally RO1. We are on our way to a Super Dog distinction.
