We were really proud to get some nice results at this prestigious show, in an big class of 8 puppies as the only uncropped puppy in that class. At the all breed show after the nationals on Sunday, she was really close to win her first points and major, she won Reserve Winners Bitch behind an very nice bitch handled by professional handler Ed Thomasson. So in general we did have an really nice trip to the USA and hope to be back next year!
