So, we're here at the end of the 2012 show year! Can you believe it? WOW! It has been quite a hectic 9 months, from our first shows in March till now. Lyra made her debut in the show scene (10 mths of age) at the 2nd Toy Club Show on 23rd March, earning her first CC and RBOB there. She went on the rest of the year, amassing a total of 1 Best Puppy in Group, 13 BOBs, 2 Reserve BOBs, 1 CACIB, 15 CCs, and 2 Reserve CCs. With all these, Lyra is officially the No.1 Cavalier in Malaysia for 2012, following in her dad's footsteps--he was the top Cavalier last year. I guess you can say it runs in the family? Lol. She has probably also finished in the Top 10 of the toy group, but those results aren't out yet, so I can't confirm it until later.
Anyhow, at the Sunday show at JB, Lyra earned another 2 CCs and 2 BOBs, thus finishing our show year! Here are some pictures from the shows:
The Shih Tzu went on to win Best in Group and Best in Show (back to back).
Some plans for next year... Lyra needs just another 5 CCs to finish her grand championship title, so we'll do that as quickly as we can, and after that, we'll be going to the Impact Show in Thailand in June. There will be 4 FCI shows then, so if we're lucky, Lyra can get another 3 CACIBs and finish her International Champion title as well. There will also be a bunch of other shows, so fingers crossed, we'll try for the Thai Champion title also. Will mainly be there just for fun, to accompany my good friend Jenny, who will be showing her dog, Ch. Liane's Highlander (Bruce). Will also get to meet up with some Thai friends, so that'll be fun!
Anyway, that's it! We get to rest for a couple of months before hitting the rings again. Fingers crossed for 2013. It's looking to be an exciting year already. =D
This is where I update news on shows that any of my dogs are entered in, or shows at which I'm just a spectator.
