What a way to end the year in Belleville, IL! December 1st and 2nd found us at the Edwardsville Kennel Club show and boy did we have a great time. Sat. CH Mojito took Select Dog for his first GCH Major. Gretel showed very well and was 1st (of 2) in open. They both showed so very well for me that my day had been made right there by 10am.
As if that wasn't enough, CH Mojito went select again on Sunday, for another 3 point major toward his GCH. Gretel was awarded Res. WB that day, and Josie again took BOB (she was the only TWC present). Nothing in the hound group that day, but still such a treat to be able to be a team with an amazing coonhound and my very dear friend. Even better was that the Belleville show being close to home, I was able to share this moment with many dear friends and colleagues. My most sincere thank you to everyone who helps me with this dream of mine in so many ways. I hope everyone knows how much I appreciate your help and value your friendship :)
Best of luck to all exhibitors far and wide, and remember to treat others as you would like to be treated :)
