Finally! Holmes’ Show Photo (and CH Certificate)

June 13, 2011

I was correct when I said the AKC Certificate would make it here before the Championship photo did.  However, I did receive the first major photo from Coronado Kennel Club on May 17th.  It arrived with the AKC Champion Certificate.  He’s official!

This is how he looked for his first Major.  The judge was Nancy Simmonds and Wendy Oelrich handled him for all his appearances.

    Nice boy! Pretty outline.

    Pretty but becoming very masculine 🙂

      Tom didn’t understand that I meant becoming very masculine as a good thing. Pretty, but not pretty in a girly-boy way.

    Holmes’s photo does not show up when I access the blog. I’ve been following him since birth. I think he and his Daddy Chase are super dogs.

  4. Builder Mama says:

    Where did that goofy boy disappear to? He is so handsome, Penni! Congratulations!

  5. Garrett says:

    congrats!!!! He is looking mighty grown up all of a sudden! 🙂

  6. Jean from NM says:

    Is this the same puppy that slobbered all over his squeaky toy when I threw it way back when? Wow — is he ever a handsome one!!! Congratulations, Penni.

  7. Holly says:

    Very nice! Congrats again!

  8. Kathy M. says:

    Wow…Holmes puppy has grown up…sigh! How quickly it happens. He’s quite the handsome young man now!
