First up was the MidAtlantic ASC show weekend in October at Point of Rocks, MD. Luster garnered a Best of Breed Puppy and Satin a BOSP under Breeder judge Kelly English.
In later shows Luster went BOBP also, with Satin BOSP to him.
Later on Thumper went Best Opposite Sex over a nice entry. We didn't end up getting photos on the puppy wins but at the next show, under judge Whitney Coombs, Satin was handled by my friend Tyler for her first time in the ring and she did a nice job.

|Luster BOBP under judge Trisha Herring; he went BOBP 4 of the 6 shows and BOSP the other 2.|
|Satin under judge Lynda Shackelford; she went BOBP twice (under :Lynda and under Rosemarie O'Hara in the final show, and BOSP 3 shows. There were other puppies too!|

Of course Thumper was at the shows as well and after the first show in an Olympic-sized ring I asked Anna Tso, just wrapping up a successful juniors career and without a Secial to handle for the weekend, if she would like to show Thumper. The result was 2 Bests of Breed (Lynda Shackleford and Chuck Quinlan) and a Best Opp win under judge David Clayton. All in all a nice trip south for us.
