Mikki in Tallahassee
well the circuit finally made it to Tallahassee. We decided to show Mikki in four of the six shows. We knew she didn't stand a chance in the breed ring, I mean top twenty on both sides were going to be there, and she is only 12 months old. So she still looks like a pup standing next to these 3 to 5 year olds. But we wanted to show because many of our local friends had never seen her in the ring and they wanted to come out and see her show. My handler had her special so she wouldn't be able to handle her. We decided to do it anyway. She arranged for her helper to handle Mikki in the ring. Wednesday I walked in the building and she quickly became distracted trying to locate me, as we had taught Mikki to use her nose. Well I was asked to leave the building so as not to distract her. She showed well on Wednesday but did not place. On Thursday the Judge was watching Mikki from the time she walked into the ring. When he was doing the exam he asked Megan how old Mikki was. She told him 12 months. He put Ripcord up as best of breed who then went on to take best in show. He then chose Mikki for best Opposite for her first 4 point Major towards her Grand Championship. Doing so she beat out last years Number nine ranked Bitch handled by Jeffery Brucker. She also beat out Zica who is from Argentina with 42 best in shows. I don't know, but feeling a bit dazed.

Congratulations! I wish I could see her on FB, but I am trying to stop my account and am on inactive. Anytime, you want to share here would be great.
