This is me at the ABC National Specialtyheld in Carlisle, PA on September 24, 2000 The judge was Mrs. Lilian Ickeringill from England. She is a long time Bloodhound breeder. I was awarded BEST OF OPPOSITE SEX. There was an entry of "about" 200 bloodhounds.
This is the judges "first"
individual look of me. My mommy was nervous here... she was wondering what Mrs. Ickerengill would think and was afraid I
would move or sit down... teehee.
On the left you see a close up of me
making the cut. That's my cousin Cruiser in the
background. The picture on the right is the final cut of girls. Altho you can't see them all, they are (R to L) me (Rigby), Dana, Fanny,
Honey and Cruiser.
On the left are some of the dogs who
made the final cut going back in for the "showdown". That's me in the middle, my cousin Cruiser on the left and
my cousin Zipper behind me. In the picture on
the right is when the judge said "Miss, bring this bitch over here please."...
she was making 1 more cut and I was in it! Behind me
you see (L to R) Denis, Dana & Sam.
Then she said "let me see you
go down and back please". Whew. I can do that! Then you see on the left she had chosen Fargo as Best of Breed and me,
Rigby as Best of Opposite. YAY! This
was VERY exciting!!
On the left I don't know what my
mommy is looking at. She's so silly! On the
right you see Virgil coming into the line for Best of Winners.
This is it! The final 3. (L to R)
Me, Rigby for Best of Opposite Sex, Virgil for Best of Winners and Fargo for Best of Breed!
This is me with MY RIBBON,
my mom & my dad. They were very happy!
I'd like to thank Susanna Anderson for these photos and Bill Slinksy for the one of me with my ribbon.
