Where to next? Not many shows are in the near future here in central Texas. Looks like we'll have to go far afield if we want Hagrid to be in the standings this year.
Teresa came to the house for the first weekend of March to stay with the dogs so Hagrid and I could fly to St. Louis, MO for the Heart of America STC Specialty. We stayed with dear friends Gary and Saundra Mills and Hagrid's great aunt, Pride, Ch. Springbok's Yakety Yak. We were so excited to win Best In Show at the Specialty and the Select Dog the last day. We came home very happy.
We've had a slow start this year but hope to change that fairly quickly.
Our last trip out for the year was to Chickasha, OK Nov 17 - 20. We showed Gwen one day (she earned 1 point) and Hagrid. He won Best of Breed all 4 days, and a regular Group 2 at the first show. He picked up 16 grand champion points to end his year well within easy reach of his Bronze title.
Hagrid was out enough to finish his Championship by April and his Grand Championship by October. He earned a Group 3 at the Gr Humble Area shows and A Reserve Best In Show Owner Handled there as well.
Gwen and Crockett are both searching for one major each. They're getting hard to come by but we're still hopeful.
Teresa and I co-own a girl with Marie Finnegan, her name is Gabby, Bold Article's Jibber Jabber of Springbok. We sent her out with a handler who got her championship by the end of June.
