Our beautiful girl Prada – CH Ghoststone The Devil Wears Prada is now an AKC Grand Champion and Best Opposite Sex At Specialty Show (BOSS)! She is now BOSS GCH CH Ghoststone The Devil Wears Prada. She won the bulk of her required points in one amazing weekend in California. It was at the Golden Gate shows which dealt us some very tricky weather with high winds and sideways rain! Prada was handled by four different folks over five days – Gail Gegg, Shelah Frey, Toni Leitao, and Vivian Poole. Gail took Prada in for a Best of Opposite Sex the first day, Shelah then followed up with a Select Bitch the next day and A Best Of Opposite Sex at the Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Club Show making her a BOSS! I handled her to a Best of Opposite Sex the next day and on the final day we threw poor Vivian to the wolves by taking Prada’s lead! Prada can be a bit of a handful for handlers as she is every bit a diva. Vivian did a fine job with her and although she did not come away with a ribbon we got some nice pictures of our girl!
I was tallying up the points and thought we had everything we needed for the Grand Champion title. I went out to the forums and bragged my heart out! Although I thought Prada was finished, she was actually one point shy of the required 25 points! Now what? I did not want to go out on the chat lists and tell people of my mistake so we figured out we could try one more show to see if we could get her finished up. Mary Jane Sarbaugh agreed to show Prada at the Whidbey Island Kennel Club show and MJ and Prada pulled off a Best Opposite Of Sex finishing young Prada’s Grand Championship!
Congrats and thanks to all of the folks who helped make this possible!
