The Central Iowa Kennel Club is offering a handling seminar in Des Moines on May 21-22, 2016. This is a great learning opportunity, no matter if you have been showing for years or you are just looking to get started.
Gigi has been playing show-dog-in-training at handling classes lately. Couple snaps from a recent class:
A sweet picture from when Oden (Gigi’s brother) recently stayed with us while his human mom was traveling:
Fun way to start Gigi’s show career! A nice Best in Match win at the Puppy Derby.
Kizzy Reserve Winners to a major picture from January 18, 2015:
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.
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!!
