It has been a busy month with travel, dog shows and particularly the Canadian National Specialty of the Standard Schnauzer Club of Canada.
The Specialty was being held in western Ontario just south of Sarnia; we decided to make it a vacation and visited several Ontario parks in addition to going to the show.
Although not a very big entry, it was very competitive. Lia did well – I would almost add being shown by me ! – and got the Select Bitch award both at the regular show and the Specialty and got Best of Opposite Sex at the regular show. Lia’s main competitors were champions from Canada and one of the top girls from the US called Elin. Getting select, meant that she came second to Elin, and Best Opposite that she beat her at one show! Not bad for our girl who had not been show since last year until two weeks before !
Here she is posing with the judge and her award ! ( P.s. Lia was us were very hot and she would not pose very willingly !)
