What an exciting weekend. Yesterday Riley got 2nd place in class at the International Dogshow Karlsruhe. Today was our second day in Karlsruhe, this time at the National Dogshow (NRAS).
Riley was presented before judge Becci Hodge (UK) today and against all expectations was awarded V1 (Excellent, 1st Place) with a Dt. VDH Challenge. To top it off he was also given Res. CAC.
RIley’s mother Tess (A Sense of Pleasure’s Pepsi) was also shown today before judge Richard Bott (UK) and also awarded a V1 (Excellent, 1st Place). Congratulations to Dagmar Eck.
Here’s a picture of proud but tired mother and son.
A big thank you to both judges for their encouraging words. It is clear that we need to do some more work but that Riley has potential has well and truly been shown. More shows to follow soon.
