GMSF 2012 Summer Specialty and Tournament

Friday, June 29

GMSF Beat the Heat Specialty

Judge: 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 Club

Judge: 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 Club

Judge: 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.
