It was another fun filled year at the Houston World Series of Dog Shows held at NRG Stadium.
Ziva made the best of both Rally and conformation worlds: (while her mamma ran back and forth between the two...ha ha ha)
completing 4 Triple Q's under Judges Mr Robert Margolis, Cathleen Caballero, Mr Rick Garvin, and Mr Robert Margolis
earning her Rally Masters 3 (RM3) and her Rally Advanced Excellent 3 (RAE3)
as well as winning 4 Best of Breed Owner Handled under Judges Mrs Anne Marie Taylor, Mrs Patricia Trotter, Mr John Wade and Mrs Victoria Seller-Cushman
highlight of our week was earning the coveted **HIGH TRIPLE Q on Sunday!
**What a huge honor among incredible competition.
Her daughter Ruffina put on her best shoes and in true form: (Thank you Jennifer Harper for handling her perfectly as usual)
she won 4 Best of Breed competitions under Judges Mrs Patricia Trotter, Mr John Wade, Ms Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine and Mrs Victoria Seller-Cushman
made us all very proud with her presence in the Group ring
most proud moments were spent showing off her loving and kind temperament with all that met her
I'm sure these memories will linger in the minds of all she has touched (and continues to touch).
I would also like to acknowledge the first show by our great great grandbaby West Mtn Echos Of Our Hearts 'Elliot' - owned and shown by Ashley Casselman (breeder/co-owner Teresa West). It was so neat to be there on his 6mth old birthday and watch him be shown for the first time and win his first Best of Opposite placement (and of course the hearts of everyone!!!).
