In late July, Walter and I traveled with 3 Barbet pups in tow whom were going to their families on the east coast. Another item on our agenda was to partake in a AKC FSS Open show in Stafford, Virginia. There was an impressive entry of 7 Barbet whom competed in 5 AKC FSS/Misc shows. Two who participated, Taylor with Barbet Dawson, and my sister in law Nancy with Thunus were first timers to AKC Dog shows. I’m extremely proud of them as they each took turns handling their Barbet in the ring.
I showed Thunus, Isis, and Disco at various times and worked on improving my handling skills. Isis even won Best of Breed and Group three. The photos below were taken by Walter. Enjoy!
Congratulations to all who participated! Special thanks to The Barbet Club of America whom graciously sponsored the rosettes and trophies.
