Just back from the 139th annual Westminster Kennel Club show in New York. Had a marvelous time with many great friends in the breed and lots of great news to pass along, starting with Silver Grand Champion Heartstrings Jasmine being used as Select Bitch! Wonderful feeling to bring a home a ribbon from this prestigious show.
Grand Champion Claire was a media darling once again this year; featured front and center of the USA TODAY newspaper Wednesday February 18. She was also shown on MSN.Com sports and her fun “celebrity likeness” photo with Gordon Ramsey is practically going viral. The media seems very drawn to Claire, also making the New York Times last year.
