Happy New Year to all!

Started off the year with a 4-show weekend at West Friendship where I showed Luster and Thumper. Luster, in his first shows as a class dog, showed well but was a bit unhappy with the judges' hands-on exams. Despite this he was able to garner a RWD ribbon under Judge Linda Robey.

After the weekend (and while he was still clean!!) I got some glamour shots. So this is Luster at 7 months.

Last week Debbie (his owner and co-breeder) had him back home and showed him at the Doswell AKC shows where he was much better with the judge exams and garnered RWD at both shows, one of which was a major. So onward and upward for Luster!  His next public appearance will be in 2 weeks back up at the February W. Friendship shows where his siter Satin will debut in HER first big-girl shows. Here are a couple of glamour shots I got of her right after Christmas when she was 7 months old.

But I also showed Thumper as a Special all 4 days and all 4 days we were handed a ribbon: 2 selects on Thursday and Friday, and 2 Best of Breed on Saturday and Sunday, a weekend that got us halfway toward Thumper's Grand Championship. What a GOOD Toompers!

This is the better of the judge-with-ribbon shots. Judge Barbara Capstick. Our other judge for a Best of Breed was Nancy Bodine.
