Kizzy was excited about their outdoor adventure, too!

Finished off the experience with dinner outside.


Kizzy Picked Up More Points

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):
