First in the ring was Ribbon, in the 7-10 Veteran Bitch Class where she was a respectable 4th in a surprisingly strong class. Actually not that surprising, there are a number of very good dogs in that age class. In actuality in our breed we probably should increase the age for veterans since most aussies don't really appear to be affected by age until age 10 or more. whatever the case, she looked great and was in the ring with my friend Nancy Temple, who owns a Thumper son.
