Hi there. It Desmond again. Sorry, I have not written to in a while. I have been enjoying the springtime in Carolina. I am taking the weekend off and chillin’ in the backyard. When it gets too hot, I just bark and Eric will let me in to the air-conditioned house. It feels SOOOOO good. But I deserve some relaxation. Why? I went back to work last weekend in Concord, NC.
It was “Breakthrough weekend” for me in Concord. First, it was a clean sweep of the RR breed judging. A BOB wins on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Next, I won my first Group placement in the Hound group on Friday. And then topped the weekend off by winning the Hound Group, Group 1, on Sunday.
I would like the judges for recognizing me with a Group 1 win and two Group two Placements.
Friday: Breed: Dr. Anthony DiNardo – BOB Group: Dr. Anthony DiNardo – G2
Saturday: Breed: Mr. Mike Jackman – BOB Group: Ms. Rosana Beatriz Camargo Knapp Dos Santos – G2
Saturday: Breed: Ms. Rosana Beatriz Camargo Knapp Dos Santos – BOB Group: Mr. Mike Jackman – G1 (My first group win!)
There was a downside to the weekend. I did not get to go dock diving like everyone else. I am mad at Daniel and Eric for not letting me dock dive. The dogs were having so much fun. I want to do that. I know I can swim. I was told since I had to take part in the groups, I could not dock dive. Ughh.
I will get back to you in about 10 days. I am off to WV for a weekend dog show. Then a week from Tuesday, I am getting my picture taken by Steve Moore. Steve is working on a project to take pictures of Rhodesian Ridgebacks in all 50 states. He just finished Vol.1 and I will probably be in Vol. 2. He is a link to his web site. Steve is even going to take a picture of my brother.
Time to go. See you next week.
