Well that was an unbelievable day!! At 9 months old - Best of Breed, New AKC Champion, Group 1, Best in Show! Also, right before my birthday so, thanks Cate for a wonderful birthday present! This is the ad that will be in the next Canine Chronicle, which is featuring the Non-Sporting Group. Cate gets to go down in the AKC history books as the FIRST FEMALE COTON DE TULEAR TO WIN A BEST IN SHOW!!! Great appreciation and gratitude to two highly esteemed judges, Judge Eugene Blake for her Group One and Judge Dr. Dale Simmons for her Best in Show! Wow wow wow!!

When we stood for our National Anthem, as we always do before a show starts in the morning, I looked out the windows to the tall city buildings where the Twin Towers used to be. It was an emotional experience. Beringer won Best of Opposite Sex. Such a great dog! I'm grateful. Couldn't love him more.
Getting ready for photos.

Beringer and I went to the AKC National Championship in Orlando Florida the week of Dec 12th 2016. This photo was taken on Dec 17, 2016. He went for three days going into the ring and not putting his tail up, which is not a wining thing to do! Then when it was the very last competition, Best Bred By Exhibitor on the very last day of showing. We were waiting to go into the ring and I let him sniff the liver I had in the palm of my hand and told him he could only sniff it but couldn’t have it. It must have jogged his brain and he was more interested in what he couldn’t have than noticing where he was. His tail came up and it was the old Beringer and he won! Judge Ed Bevin was wonderful and I had a good laugh at his comment on Beringer’s tail. It was a great trip after all!

MI-TOI’S WHITE VELVETEEN (“WHITNEY") won Best of Breed, Best of Winners and a three point major in Portland Oregon on Saturday July 23rd, 2016 at the "Stumptown Cluster!” There are very few females showing on the west coast so she had to win over four males to get her first major (for a championship you need 15 points, and two of the wins have to be majors.) Now we have to do the same thing one more time and she’ll have her AKC championship. The judge on Sunday gave her Best of Opposite, but because she was the only female, she didn’t get any points. We’ll keep having fun. Just love her.
