Below : A few 2015 National Specialty photos of Cupcake.
She returned home from Nationals with a new title
in agility and a new title in rally - plus additional
legs and placements and instinct passes.
Below : Spice with the MVA conformation judge who gave her a 110 out of
a possible 110 score in conformation .... the only female ( out of 10 ) to get
a perfect score based on the breed standard AND for being within the
correct height for a female.
DAY 3 . . . . RALLY & OBEDIENCE
Spice & Cupcake " long down exercise "
( Spice calls it an exercise in meditation - LOL )
Cap't Kirk also competed in the regular conformation classes -
he was the only male in the Open Red class but it was good
experience for Cheryl and I am very proud of her for giving
conformation another whirl and supporting Nationals with an
Open Red class entry.
