|Nuphar's Gift Wrapped, Nessa, winning two groups, and Ch.Hickory Tavern Intl Intrigue, Solene, winning Best In Show|
At the final show of the weekend, Solene won the group, and her performance in the Best In Show ring was truly wonderful. I know that when I looked down at her as we were gaiting in the huge ring, I was so proud of how beautiful and happy she looked. The judge gave her really nice comments, then awarded her the huge BIS rosette and a crystal trophy platter. As a breeder, it makes me so proud for Solene to be appreciated by so many people, and for her to win a Best In Show before she is even 11 months old is just an incredible honor.
Solene is following in her mother's footsteps, as she and Claire are now the only two Barbet girls in North America to win Bests In Show. I am so fortunate to have these wonderful, sweet dogs with me.
|Nessa Thanks to Anne Plomp for sharing this wonderful puppy with me.|
