We finally made it back to the show ring after a very busy summer and fall. I took Marlee and Flynn to Wilmington, Ohio, where the largest entry of American Barbet to date competed at the AKC shows at the Roberts Centre. Marlee won Best of Breed and then the FSS Group 1 on Saturday under judge Neil McDevitt. Sunday she was Best Opposite under Monika Pinsker, bringing her halfway to her Certificate of Merit title. Little Flynn made her debut in points competition and she did great! She was brave and showy, having a lot of fun; exactly what I want for her first times in the ring.
