However today, the main show day, PARKER did it - Best of Breed!
With a record breed entry for this prestigious show (competition from across the US, Canada, England and Australia), Mr. Walter Goodman's Best of Breed dog was chosen to be Parker - Ch Darwyn's Webslinger!
My bad habit (biting my nails) was my drug of choice this afternoon while we all watched the beautiful dogs go around, individually judged and then waited until the winner was pointed to! It was such an intense time period for me. Truly wonderful. And, watching Parker and Jenny Wornall in the Group ring tonight brought tears to my eyes. When Mrs. Robert Forsyth pulled Parker in her 'cut', I gasped for breath! He showed SO beautifully, I cannot wait to see the televised version of tonight show!
I was also very happy to watch my friends Lakeland Terrier, Ch. Manoirs Match Point, from Ontario win the breed and watch him in the group.
Thank you everyone for your wonderful words and encouragement about this young dog.
I can't wait to go home tomorrow, see Michael (who has so kindly stayed home to take care of our puppies) and just cuddle with potential future Best in Show dogs!
