Great Fun at the WSSCA National Specialty!

We just returned home from a fantastic time at the WSS National Specialty. We arrived Wednesday night unpacked at the hotel, got setup at the show and got a chance to visit with some friends. Thursday I showed Jasmine in the Open bitch class and placed second out of 7 bitches.

On Friday after we showed we had the Southern Invitational. It was exciting watching many of the best dogs in the US compete in one venue and fun spending time with friends. We were all so happy to watch 13 year old Eero win the Southern Invitational and I was happy to see our friends Keith and Carla Vooris win runner up with Hannah, GCH Mystic Acres Reflections of the Past and one of my favorite welshies. Hannah is also Eero’s granddaughter. It was also cool seeing everyone all dressed up in pink in honor of Colleen O’Keefe.

On Saturday at the National, Jasmine and I took fourth place out of twelve bitches in the Open bitch class under Judge Michael Faulkner. That was a thrill and so much fun showing under Michael Faulker, who did a great job keeping everyone guessing in the BOB competition. Then we got to go over to the group ring and watch Maddux and Meghen Bassel take a Group 1 and Best in Show! That was exciting! Congratulations to his owners Susan and Spencer Doss and breeders/co-owners Meghen Bassel and Sandy Holmes!

Thursday, Friday and Saturday, there were raffles, an arm band raffle and, on Saturday, a silent auction. We won quite a few nice items in the raffles and silent auction, which was a lot of fun.

We also used our time at the National to look at stud dogs and saw many great dogs. We decided on Trystyn’s Spring Into Action, who is a dog I love for his beautiful rear, great bone, level topline and gorgeous head! Crockett took reserve winners dog to a 5-point major Thursday before the National.
