Our boy Zeus – AM/CAN CH Gingerbred Celestial Thunder JH, CGC is now a Grand Champion – he was the 40th Labrador to achieve the title. His new official name is GCH CH Gingerbred Celestial Thunder JH, CGC. I have not figured out what to do with his American/Canadian portion of the title and will leave that to smarter folks than me! This new title would have been a wonderful precursor to the 2010 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship but we were unaware that Zeus had reached the number of points to achieve this prestigious title.
So what does this mean to Zeus. Well I am pretty sure he does not feel any different and would trade his title for a nice bone any day. It really demonstrates that he is a very special dog that competes well in some very elite company – other champions! He is now a Champion of Champions!
Congratulations to all of the folks who helped Zeus along this path by showing him and winning – Shelah Frey, Toni Leitao, and Tonya Struble.
