Kizzy has been out with a handling team and has picked up three more points towards her AKC championship. She is now “singled out” – she has 12 of her 15 needed points and just needs a 3-point major to finish her championship.
Don’t know what that dog show jargon means, but curious? Check out AKC’s Beginners’ Guide To Dog Shows and/or Counting Points at a Dog Show.
Here she is with Gwen Meyer, winning two points (June 2013):
The picture from the Heart of IA KC show came in the mail today:

Kizzy picked up another point towards her AKC championship yesterday at the Heart of IA dog show. She was Reserve Winners today.
She now has nine points towards her championship, including one of her majors. Six points to go!
Puppy Update - Mantle boy now has his eyes open! They opened at 10 days old exactly…he is a little go-getter! As of this afternoon, he is up to 2 lbs 15 oz and gaining fast.
Kizzy’s win picture from the Great Dane Club of Des Moines Specialty. 5 point major reserve with Neil handling her from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class.
The Great Dane Club of Des Moines just had our annual back-to-back Specialties this past Friday. We had a wonderful entry – 65 Danes. Nice 5 pointer in bitches! Kizzy went Reserve Winners Bitch at the afternoon show, under judge Jane Treiber.
The after-show dinner was great fun as well! I’ve so many great friends through dogs!!
Kizzy picked up a 4 point major this weekend in MN! Woo-hoo!!

Just got home from a fun weekend in Waukesha, Wisconsin. We didn’t come home with any points, but we had a great time and the dogs all did great showing. Kizzy won a very nice Bred-By-Exhibitor class both Friday and Saturday, placing second today to Nancy Parker’s lovely Piper, who went RWB. Bree won her class all three days.
The show was lots of fun. It was great to catch up with friends and see some wonderful Danes!
Yesterday Tiana and I drove into Milwaukee and snapped a few shots of the dogs at various locations around Lake Michigan.

A few additional pics available in this gallery.
Unfortunately, the photographer messed up and set the placard as RWB, instead of Winners/Best of Opposite.
The first day’s picture didn’t turn out all that well, but I like the second day’s picture (pictured first below)..
Horrible stack job by me!
