Sigillito St. Louis Bonnie, Best of Variety Bitch - O/W

There was some tough competition in the ring, a lot of really nice dogs were entered. The Board of Directors and the Show committee would like to extend a special congratulations to Jim Sigillito's son, who handled Sigillito St. Louis Bonnie in the ring and came away with a Best of Variety Bitch -O/W win for his 2 1/2 year old female. It was so great to see this young man involved and participating in the events with his dog. It gave us a snapshot of things to come in the future, with more and more of our youth participating along with their parents. There were several members who brought their toddlers and children and its great to involve our children in these family-oriented events.
Besides being able to show dogs in the regular classes, next year we plan to offer some Junior Handler classes for the children to participate in from PeeWee's on up. So get 'em ready and bring them with you next year!

Being able to show a French Brittany is a new experience for owners and for the dogs and we had a great turnout! It was a great experience and a great learning opportunity for everyone. Kate Bride donated a perpetual (or traveling) trophy to be given to the dog chosen Best of Breed each year. A name plaque will be engraved and added to the base each year. Kate also donated two trophies, one for Best Opposite Sex to Best of Breed and the other for Best Puppy, that the owners will get to keep. A replacement trophy will be given to the owner of the Best of Breed when they return the perpetual trophy

to the club for the next year's show that they will then be able to keep. Rosettes are awarded for 1st through 4th place in each Class. Specially made ceramic and wood framed placques plus rosettes are  awarded to each Best of Variety winner, to each Best of Winners and to Best of Breed. Lynda Kieres, Show Secretary, must be congratulated for the great job she did in organizing the event and all the details that go into putting on a show. Premiums were sent out, show catalogs were printed,

not to mention all the work involved in arranging for all the awards. Since she was the Show Secretary, Bob Luff handled her dogs in the ring and did he did a fine job of it! Joyce Smith served as Ring Steward and was an immense help in keeping everything flowing smoothly. They're both going to be drafted again for next year's show!

Joe and Eileen Cummings provided the photography for the events and did a wonderful job. The only problem with the pictures is

They got some excellent shots of the dogs in the field, members with their dogs and the beautiful wild flowers that were in bloom.
