Not sure how long this will last since he won't be shown much more in Canada in 2011, but Monty is currently the #6 Terrier in Canada!

Oceanside Kennel Club is a local show to my home (only one on the north side of the river) so I try to go and support them each spring.  As usual it was a relatively small show (Sunday had about 240 dogs entered, including 24 terriers), however, when you looked around the various rings, you saw many quality dogs, in top condition.  Quite a number of seasoned show dogs with many Group Winners and BIS and BISS dogs (both in Canada and in the US).  This weekend might have had a more relaxed atmosphere to it, and we all got to enjoy some sunshine that peeked out, but there was stiff competition inside of the rings!

I was very honoured to have won the Terrier Group 3 of the days with my young boy, Monty (Ch Darwyn Bruhil's Flying Circus).  Monty has been in the BIS ring before (twice at Canada's largest show in October at Tradex/Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers ... when he got his first Canadian Championship points!), but this was my third weekend showing him in Canada and my first time in the Best in Show ring with him!

Monty literally jumped for joy - and I was right there with his enthusiasm and true terrier spirit!

I truly appreciate the consideration that the judges provided with these awards, and all of the wonderful comments from my fellow exhibitors, both in the terrier ring and other groups.

Thank you.
