ZORRO! - Darwyn Don Diego de la Vega - first US points

Zorro attended his first show with other Welsh Terrier competition yesterday and was awarded Best of Breed!  Today there were more dogs entered and he was BOB again for his first major!  Click here for details.

Otherwise known as Canadian Champion Darwyn Don Diego de la Vega, Zorro was shown for 3 weekends last spring in Canada, in a very new/short coat to see if he would enjoy the show ring.  He did - and does!  He did pretty well at those shows - completed his Canadian Championship with a couple of Group 1st wins (amongst some other very nice terriers).
Today's win in Virgina (click here for details) was his first major.  This was his 2nd time in the ring with other Welsh Terriers - 8 entered (yesterday he was also BOB).  What a wonderful way for him to enter the US show rings.  I am so proud.

After he finished in Canada, we decided that we would like others in the US to see our "Monty and Dora" son (since they both did so well at Montgomery 2011).  So, Zorro went to Ernesto Lara to be conditioned for next weekends shows in PA - otherwise known as Montgomery County Kennel Club (MCKC) shows, which includes the leading up shows of Hatboro I, II and Devon.  These 4 shows are also the Welsh Terrier Club of America (WTCA) National Specialties.  Clearly Zorro enjoys his new handler and they are working well as a team!
I fly out next week to watch, while Michael will hold the fort at home (thank you!) .... really looking forward to seeing everyone, the dogs, and most importantly, Zorro and his litter sister Jessie!
