This past weekend was a busy one for American Barbet. Several of our Barbet were being shown in Canada as well as the United States. Three of my girls from various litters, Daytona, Ellie, and Cara were at a Sporting Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) show in Canada. While we were at the Stafford, Virginia AKC FSS open show with Cinna, Cleo, Thunus/George, and Isis.
The first big win came on Saturday for Daytona. She got best of opposite and best of winners which completed her CKC championship. This is a American Barbet first! Daytona is the first of our progeny to earn her CKC champion title. I also can not forget to mention Bric was our first to earn his UKC Championship title.
Cara was at the show as well and earned her first ever Best of Breed in group. Lynn, owner of Ellie, handled Cara for her BOB. I’m super proud of Lynn as this is the first year she’s shown in dog shows and is doing great! Cara is now over half way towards her CKC championship.
