Rip has had a very good couple of weekends on the Florida show circuit. Last Saturday he took Best Opposite Sex (BOS) for one point. Sunday, he again took BOS for a point – picking up two points his first weekend out since he was a puppy.
This weekend, on Saturday, Rip took reserve winner dog (RWD). Sunday, however, he took Winners Dog (WD), Best of Winners (BoW) and Best of Breed (BOB) under judge Robert Vandiver – earning his first major win. Judge Vandiver was very complimentary of Rip and said some very nice things.
Also, to add to the wonderful weekend, I received a very special surprise. Liam’s owner (CoolWater’s Wish Me Luck O’ The Irish RN) gave me this wonderful chair. I was taken aback by the lovely surprise. I will most definitely be using it all the time and, each time I do, I’ll be thinking about the wonderful person it came from. A nice weekend, it definitely was.
