Brighthope attended the Oakville & District Kennel Club conformation dog shows this past weekend. Two shows on Friday, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. We thought it would be fun to get Arine out as a puppy and let her get a taste of the dog show world. Eclat was entered and Kim and Pat also entered Dax (Eclat's brother) as well. Whenever there are more then two Blues at a show, we always hear comments about this being a specialty for the Blue Picardy. :-)
Arine is maturing nicely but we were still a little bit surprised when she took Best Of Breed at the first show and absolutely thrilled when the judge gave her Best Puppy in Group. This is only the second time in Canada that a Blue Picardy has won a puppy group, our Ciron being the first. Dax took the breed at the second show on Friday and Arine was given Best of Breed at the Saturday and Sunday shows.
It was a fun weekend and we are very proud of our Dutch import, Arine. Her breeder in Holland will be thrilled with the news as well.
Hats off to the Oakville club for a good show.
