Rows and rows of champions at the US Tibetan Terrier National Specialty Show
It was great! Lots of butts to sniff. Lots of old friends and lots of BS. My kind of show!
Two of my boys, Rufus and Sherpa, were there. Based on his AKC ranking, Rufus was invited to participate in the Tibetan Terrier Club of America's Top 20 Invitational held during the Tibetan Terrier National Specialty. It was a fancy affair with lots of preening and way too much hairspray. Rufus took home the biggest ribbon I have ever seen. During the week he also received two certificates of achievement. My beautiful boy Sherpa traveled all the way from Connecticut and also received a certificate of achievement. And I didn't walk away empty handed. I received a Register of Merit as "Brood Bitch" for producing so many champion pups. Can you imagine? Who would have thought? And after only two litters.
