The last two years have been interesting to show dogs. 2020 had very few opportunities for dog shows and so we spent the time working on our house and dog areas. The one show we did attend here in our hometown of Filer, ID Nelli took a 4 pt major to get her 1st points @ 14 months. Gator joined us in the ring starting in Caldwell in March and the spring and fall were just one adventure after another. we took the summer off to raise 2 litters of puppies. But, now that puppies are in their new homes we can focus on the dog show. Gator has obtained 10 of his needed 15 points toward his AKC championship and Nelli has 11 points toward hers. It is now a race to see which one will finish 1st. Les and I always agreed that we would finish our 1st champion completely handled by us and not sending our dogs out with a professional handler. We want that honor and opportunity to be the reason our hard work paid off. Hopefully we will find a couple shows this winter if the weather cooperates that we can continue to add points and work toward that goal of having our 1st official homegrown AKC Champion.
