Mommy handled him throughout the whole show & she said River never got tired for the whole 13 hours over there & he was always full of zest in the ring. He gaited & stacked wonderfully though he did freak out in the beginning when the Australian judge touched his erm..."jewels" but after that he warmed up to him. The judge was a very nice, gentle man. River made it all the way up to the Best Puppy In Show category but he didn't get anything from there. Hopefully next time, he will.
Here he is with his pretty BPIG pink rosette. My hoomies' mentor said he's a beautifully structured dog with a lovely scissor bite & head.
Here he is competing with the other pups from other groups for the BPIS & RBPIS titles.
They had a very exhausting day because everybody left at 3.30 in the morning on Sunday & only came at 1 a.m. the next day. They did not get to rest at all. BOL! Well, we sure were very happy to see them all back home again.
