The Cardigan National Specialty

April 30, 2014

There is so much to report — not counting the awful weather at the end of the show.  The capsule:

Chase – did not qualify in herding nor in agility (BADDOG!).  He won the herding-titled conformation class and was second in the Stud Dog Class with Lowri and Copper

Copper – earned her HT — looking every bit like a herding dog — and made the final cut in the 12-15 month bitch class

Flutter – earned 3rd place in a near sweep of the 6-9 puppy girl class (Gimme was 1st, Reserve Winners Bitch, and Best Puppy, as well as Best in Sweepstakes, Flutter was 3rd, and Fable was 4th)

Salsa made the cut in 6-9 puppy sweeps

Storybook (fka “Kimber) – earned her HT and was 4th in the 9-12 month puppy bitch class

Here are a few photos — it will take me a while to look at all the photos so I can share the best

    From all reports, it sounds like a really fun week! Chase is always a winner in my eyes! He’s a great Cardigan, even if he has moments of “BADDOG”.
