I’m still smiling!

This weekend Gambler & Glory received their UKC Champion Show title. Gambler got his yesterday and Glory today. It was a fabulous weekend for us and I couldn’t be prouder! This all started the weekend of July 14-15, 2012. Kathy Case came up to WI to my house and since she was here visiting she said “why don’t I show your dogs in a UKC conformation show”? I said “sure that would be great” as I have never showed a dog before, so it was exciting to go to the show and watch Kathy do her magic. Kathy showed both Gambler and Glory, and in 2 days she had 120 points and 2 wins for both of them. Glory placed 3 out of 6 and 4 out of 6 in the gun dog group class, Gambler was 4 out of 5 in both shows.  They need 100 points and 3 competition wins for their title. Kathy showed me how to “stack” them and what I need to do to get them read to show and then it was up to me to finish them (I have only been to one show in my life, took classes 11.5 yrs ago with Norman and haven’t done squat since). This weekend there was another show at the same location as the show Kathy and I went to (same club also). The Wisconsin Toy Fox Terrier club held in Ixonia, WI. Saturday I entered both Gambler and Glory and Gambler was the show hog and won both shows and he got his UKC Champion with the one win in show one. The judge complimented me with the nice job I did showing him his teeth and doing it the correct way! Went back on Sunday and Glory placed 4 out of 5 in the gun dog group class to receive her UKC Champion title. The fun part with showing Glory was that when the judge examined her head her face was right by Glory’s and Glory gave her a kiss and the judge said “thanks for the kiss”! I couldn’t be happier! I haven’t had any type of show titles on any of my dogs and this feels really good. A huge THANKS goes out to Kathy for the start, the teaching and the faith that I could pull it off!

  1. Thanks all! 2browndawgs, I won’t show them in AKC, that is too big of a venue for me. If my friend Kathy thinks Glory has a chance against the real show dogs then she can show her. Gambler has two missing teeth from a injury when he was a puppy so he can’t be shown in AKC.
