GMSF Beat the Heat SpecialtyJudge: Karen McFarlane
Mendel - 1st Amateur Owner Handler (showed like a complete and total goofball for winners, making sure I still remember he's a puppy)
Mendel's Aunt Annika (BISS GCH Hawkwind's Emerald Storm) was given an Award of Merit
Saturday, June 30
Kettle Moraine Kennel ClubJudge: Carl Liepman
Mendel - 3rd Open Dog (his showing improved and we got some great feedback from a fellow exhibitor)
We didn't make any of the cuts, but while in the ring suddenly he remembered how this whole showing thing works. Sister Sookie made one cut, and Auntie Annika was awarded reserve winner!
Sunday, July 1
Kettle Moraine Kennel ClubJudge: Gary Bassett
Mendel - 2nd Open Dog (He showed beautifully. I could not have been happier with him. He moved out well, gave me a nice straight down & back, and gave it everything he had on the last go-around. A handful of exhibitors commented on how great he looked, I was very proud to be taking that one home with me regardless of our placement.)
Auntie Annika won Best of Opposite Sex.
