Mirtillo brag

So, we had our first clubmatch today.. It went GREAT!! We are so proud of our boy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Because he was the only basenji baby.. He was baby Best of Breed.. The judge wrote a beautiful report. (We forgot to take it with us.. so it will be send to us. When it arrives, I'll quote. But it had something in it like: excellent show quality ๐Ÿ†’ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Then we went on for baby Best of Show.. And Mirtillo came out third!! (out of ten ๐Ÿ˜ƒ :D) Nr. 1 was a American Akita and nr. 2 a Saluki.

Here is a photo of the podium.. Nr. 2 was hungry.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I'll post some of the other photos in Show off your dog.

Way to go Mirtillo:D

Congratulations to you both:D

Superโ€ฆ that is great... looks like he was cold however in the picture..ggg

That Akita is too cute!!!

He was soooooooooo cold!! Just shaking ๐Ÿ˜ƒ He just wanted to sit down (and I actually let him.. and just rubbed his back.. :D)

And that Akita really was cute!!

Congratulations to Mirtillo and you!

I love how your shows have written critiques. This is not done at AKC dog shows so you never really know what the judge thinks about your dog unless they happen to make a comment.
