Just figured I would post a brag, but we went to our first show early in June in Grayslake, IL. My boy, Hunter's Ridge Sinking the Bismarck SH (+4 MH Qs) took his first points back to back beating one dog each day. He is now officially AKC pointed for his Championship. I've always grown up showing Dobes and Greater Swiss, but this was my first time (with my own dog) getting a point in the GSP ring. I had always known I had show-quality dogs, because that is why I purchased them from my breeders in the first place, but they had never actually "grown up" when the Dobes or Swissies did. He was shown only two times before this - back when he was only a 6 month old puppy for one day, and then a weekend back this past December where he took back-to-back Reserves (2nd Place to the winning dog) to a "major" (3 points or greater).
I'm very pleased and hopefully Bizzy can continue to get his CH in some more shows later this year or early next year. He's really turning into a dog that is not only gorgeous on point, but gorgeous in the show ring!
