Our last trip to the states

year 2006

We are back from another trip to the US and Mexico as well as another National Specialty with great news to report:
We arrived in Dallas, where we left Prince with his breeder, Carla Restivo, who was very kind to "puppysit" for us while we traveled for a week in the sun in Mexico. Thank you very much, Carla, for taking care of our boy during that week.

The following weekend we attended a show in Canton, TX:
Prince won both days his class and took Winners Dog on Saturday under judge Drs. Robert J Berndt and Reserve Winners Dog under judge Ann Katona on Sunday.

Prince also did very well at the Regional and Nationals. He consistently was placed in his class (6-9 months Puppy Dogs). His placements were as following:

4th Place - Regional Specialty Sweepstakes
Judge Mr. Artt Chapa - USA
2nd Place - Regional Specialty - Regular Classes
Judge Ms. Claudia Seaberg - USA
2nd Place - National Specialty Sweepstakes
Judge Joyce Martin - USA
3rd Place - National Specialty - Regular Classes
Judge Ms. Eva Lydick - USA

At the Nationals, we also had the opportunity to participate in a very informative handling seminar presented by well known handler and AST breeder, John MCartney.

We also had the opportunity to spend some time with Dick Pascoe at White Rock Kennels, which we always appreciate very much.
