We had such a great time at the Specialty, it was busy, busy! Kaleb hasn't shown since '06 when he was shown in Altered at the Specialty, he was neutered in 05 after he got his CH. He was entered in Veterans 7 - 9 this time instead of Altered. I could NOT believe it when the the Judge picked Kaleb as the winner. I stood there in shock for a few seconds!!! I was truly honoured she picked him!! Then to top it off he made both cuts and was in the final line up for BIS! What a cool experience, to be among all those beautiful dogs will be something I will never forget. Kaleb also got 2nd in the Working Retriever class, that was super cool, as you can see he loves his prize!
Just an hour before this photo, he had run 2 agility runs, and was soaking wet from taking a dunk in the creek!!
I am glad he dried in time!!
the final line up!
Kaleb also finished his Rally Novice title with 2 4th places.
He ran Agility and placed 1st and Qd in 7/8 Runs and finished those titles too.
Since he placed in both Conformation AND Performance Events, he also got a "Beauty and Brains" Award.
What a boy.
