The ol' boy still has it! Was very pleased with how Argus looked and show at St. Louis, and how well his kids and grandkids did over the weekend. In addition to Can. Ch. "Porter" finishing his Championship (#19 for Argus), son "Oliver" was Best of Winners on Saturday for 5 points (now has 11 points and both majors), and granddaughter "Meribel" was Best of Winners at the second Specialty on Friday. Son "Eddie" won Best In Sweepstakes on Friday too. AND in Arizona daughter Mariah (you may remember her from this blog) won a 4-point major, as well as a 2-point win that included Best of Opposite Sex over a bitch Special (a female champion). Mariah now has 10 points, including the major.
SO, who will be the next champion or Argus? It will be a significant one as the 20th Champion will qualify him for Register Of Merit Excellent - ROMX. Argus earned his ROM for his first 10 Champions, but the ROMX is quite an honor. Just one more to go. Puppy Weather also has 7 points and a major, and Eddie has 5 points and a major. (It takes 15 points and at least 2 majors for a dog to earn it's championship.)
We're off to Chicago this weekend, leaving after work on Friday and spending the night with Meg. On Saturday we are going over to Cheryl's to take a look at the Bennett/Crystal pups and presumable bring home either a black or liver bitch. Suppose I need to break the news to Ron pretty soon!
