On Saturday, July 10th, Morgan was awarded his final point to complete the AKC breed championship at the Upper Marlboro Kennel Club Show under Judge Elizabeth Muthard. He recieved his final point by defeating two very nice regular class dogs. He also went Best of Winners. I could tell he was also happy to finish, because he kept wanting to chase after the photographers squeaky toy and wouldn’t hold still for his picture.

I am very happy to finish both dogs this year.  I am not fully conferable in the breed ring and would rather be out in the field training or trialing. There are to many variables out of my control in the breed ring. With Morgan, however, it was actually fun and I looked forward to the shows.

I now have three Flat-Coat Champions living at home, all healthy and resting at the moment. At least until I get up from this chair.


Rock Creek Kennel Club Show Success!

On July 4th, 2010 at the Rock Creek Kennel Club Show, Morgan won Winner’s Dog and Best of Winners under Judge Thomas J. Feneis.  Morgan was awarded the cross over points from the bitches major. I spoke briefly with the judge while waiting for the show pictures and he said Morgan had a very nice head, good topline and smooth movement. Morgan now has 12 of 15 points required for breed championship and both major wins.
