Liz showed Tinbie in the bred-by exhibitor class and placed 2nd in this huge class full of gorgeous dogs. The dog that won the class (Jennifer Andrew's lovely dog, Huntlane Lake Effect), went on to win Winners Dog and Best of Opposite. Tinbie got to go back in the ring and was awarded Reserve Winners Dog. What a thrill!

On the last day, Liz showed Puffin and Cava in the brace class. They showed nicely and we managed not to get too tangled up together! They placed 3rd in the class.
The specialty judge was Wies Boermans, a well-respected dutch flat-coat breeder/judge. We have admired her dogs for many years, so it was nice to do so well under her and well worth the long, long, long drive!
