Good news from last week's shows--how apt that Dalton finishes his championship at the final shows of the year! He was awarded 2 CCs and 2 BOBs by judges William and Denise Smith from Australia. Mirai managed 1 CC and 1 Reserve BOB at the same shows. Pleased to say that Dalton is finally getting the hang of showing and his showmanship is improving each time we step into the ring!
Fingers crossed that he'll continue to get more comfortable and learn how to strut his stuff even more over the next year. In the mean time, here are some pictures from the shows!
A behind-the-scenes picture of Mirai, Dalton, and Marvel, who was shown by my friend Eve, and won himself 2 CCs and 2 BOBs during his very first outing! Woohoo!
The Cavaliers who were shown that day: Riccaval Marvel, Riccaval Ace the Full Buck, and Riccaval Katniss.
So there you have it, a whole year of shows has once again come to a conclusion! Pretty proud of myself as I managed to title two Papillons this year--Lennon (Mys. Ch., LT & LV JCh Vilarden's Rolex Challenger) and Dalton (Mys. Ch. Amber Beauty Justin), and MOST delightful of all, Lyra, who not only gained her International Champion and Grand Champion titles, but also finished the year as the No.1 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in Malaysia and in the Top 10 of the Toy Group for the SECOND YEAR RUNNING!!
I am so damn proud of my little girl; she has achieved so much more than I could've ever dreamed of. Although she is now retired from the rings, I hope to show her again someday in the future. She is just the funnest dog to show.
Here's to hoping that 2014 will have even better things in store for us. Watch this space!!
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.
