Yes I knew he moved to Denton a few years ago. I think Collette is still in the San Antonio area. I've been out of the confirmation world a while since my mastiffs have all passed.

I'm from Shawnee and get up that way fairly often as most of my family is there, Norman, Moore and Edmond.

Oh! Ok, I kept thinking to myself that I felt like I had seen Malachi win before, lol.

Thank you, I will make sure to record it!

Although I did love that my 3 favorite breeds were in the running for Best In Show last year. The GSD, the Dalmatian and the Doberman.

I admit though that I do like the Kerry Blue Terrier that was also in the running.

#8 got an Award of Merit. Yes, she was dark. Seems like she was a bicolor. Have to look at the video again when it goes up.

I would call her a blanket back. Too much tan.

Well, I'll be cheering for Fritz! I feel like he's practically family, LOL.

As a side note, Fritz's handler Scott (and his wife) were sooooo nice to me this summer at the OKC show. I was discouraged because Sage got completely dumped all weekend. She just had no spark. And this was coming off her big win right after the tornado in Moore, where she went Breed over 20 other GSDs including 3 specials. And then totally dumped in OKC. Didn't beat a single dog. Scott and his wife told me that Sage was a lovely bitch, and don't be discouraged. That I would finish her. And told me "it's better to be good than lucky". Since that horrible show, she's gotten 3 major reserves, and a 4 point major. I guess I won't give her away, lol.

There was a lot of show lingo in this post. I don't even know what any of it meant lol. "Dumped", "finish her", "3 specials", "major reserves". Could you explain?

LOLOL. I'm sorry!

Dumped : Didn't even get a placement in her class. Not even 4 out of 4. Nothing. No ribbon. Threw your money totally out the window. Why did I enter, lol?

Finish her: To finish your dog is to get it's championship.

Specials: Champions. The dogs that are entered in Best of Breed are champions and are referred to as specials. You also say you are specialing your dog, if it is a champion and you are going for a Grand Championship, or Group placements, or to get ranked. I have shown my champion Carly as a special at 2 shows, just for fun.
