Eukanuba National Championship

We had a great time at the show. It was nice meeting some of the CA list members and participating in the Meet the Breeds Booth. The Long Beach Kennel Club show was on Friday, and despite being a bit rambunctious, Copper showed well and was Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Opposite Sex. A very nice start for a young bully. Here's her win photo, complete with a string of drool!

Melissa showed her Pointer in Junior Showmanship at the Long Beach KC show, and made the final cut in a large class. Her big day was Saturday, the Eukanuba National Championship show, for which Juniors must qualify with 5 wins in Open classes with competition. Melissa and Maui did a fine job, but were disappointed to not make the finals. With an entry of over 150 of the top Juniors in the nation, it was a very tough competition. We'll be there again next year for sure!

We're leaving for California this afternoon for the Eukanuba Championship show. Melissa will compete in Junior Showmanship, and Copper will begin her show career at the Long Beach show on Friday. Olive is doing just fantastic; this is her latest picture.
