Well the dog-and-handler-with-judge-holding-ribbon photos arrived today. Thumper won his class of 9-12 month puppies 4 of 5 times in the ring. Alas the most sought-after class win , in Nationals themselves, eluded us. Judge I believe preferred a bigger dog or simply couldn't adequately evaluate Thumper well due to his uncooperative behavior on his 9th time in the ring in less than a week. It was a lot for a puppy so I am happy with our take from the week. The bonus was, he won a little cash in Sweeps so he bought ice cream all around for the co-travelers on the trip.
