AKC Dog Shows for the Barbet and other FSS Breeds

Last weekend we traveled to Baltimore, Maryland, to show at the American Kennel Club shows in Howard County. These were great shows for the FSS breeds as the shows were held concurrently with the regular AKC shows. Our rare breeds got lots of attention from the observers! We had fun with three of our puppies in the Puppy class, and Solene won Best of Breed. Both days she also won Group 2 in the FSS group. She earned the final points to complete her Certificate of Merit title with the AKC, and she is now the very first female Barbet to have a CM title. The other Barbet with CM titles are Stacy Able's Cinna and Solene's son, Micah.

Even more fun than any of this was sharing little Kate's first dog show weekend with her and her family. Her puppy Fia behaved beautifully, and no one watching would ever have guessed that this was Kate's first show. She'd never even been to a show just to watch!  Her poise in the ring proves that she has a wonderful future ahead of her with competitive dog events. She took great care of the puppies that she showed and they looked wonderful!
