I have been a bit slow updating! Yikes. At the biggest shows of the year back in September, Lyra was entered in 4 out of 6 shows because there was a brand new title up for grabs: the Asia-Pacific Champion title. Basically, dogs have to earn 2 CCs in an APAC show to qualify for the title, which Lyra did, so she is now an FCI-APAC Champion in addition to her International Champion and Malaysian Grand Champion titles. This makes her the top winning Cavalier bitch and Malaysian bred Cavalier of ALL TIME! Think she did well, after having had pups just 6 months prior and having had all her coat shaved off.
In total, Lyra won 4 BOBs, 4 CCs, 1 CACIB, and Juno won a Reserve BOB as well as a Reserve CC. Juno was a total hooligan in the ring, as usual, so it was very difficult to show her. You can see her antics in the picture below:
Such a far cry from her mother, Lyra, who's always the picture of serenity in the ring! Have all fingers and toes crossed that she will behave better at this weekend's shows. We'll see if all the training pays off. The odd thing is, I train with her so much and she is reasonably well behaved on the lead when we're outside the ring.... but once we step into the ring, it's like she turns on the monster and goes berserk! Here's a picture of Lyra in the group, her coat is not fully back yet.
Think she did pretty well, for being out of the ring for exactly a year! Love showing my little Lyra. She is truly the ultimate show girl -- that tail never stops wagging, and she is always so reliable... never puts a foot wrong! Anyhow, here is the info on this weekend's shows:
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.
