. . . but what we got was Best of Breed and a Herding Group IV. Wendy told me to get lost, so I was sitting back where I could see, but not be seen, and not say a word. I had tears in my eyes watching him float around the ring with his tail streaming behind him and the autumn sun glinting off his bronze coat. He was so happy and really cashed in on the cute factor. This is Chase’s second Group placement and I’m so very proud of him! Wendy did a great job keeping him focused and up! His second birthday is Saturday and the show photographer promised me the Group placing photo by email before then (he did that for me last year with a Best of Breed photo from the same show). The Judge for Breed and the Group was Mrs. Andre B. Schoen from Colorado Springs. The show was Valencia Valley Kennel Club (2).
