Successful 2018 National Specialty
The results of the National Specialty are just now beginning to sink in. A special thanks to my Phoenix, CH Camio's Educated Guess. All dogs listed below are her descendants. At 12 years old, she is still my co-pilot in more ways than one.
Under Sweepstakes Judge, Mrs. Georgia Crompton, Camio's Charred Oak was awarded Best in Sweepstakes. (GCHS Cherber's Double Your Money at Image and Wynward's One Classy Chick at Camio) "Robert" is an Eddie Grandson. Camio's Cherry da Bomb (an Eddie Granddaughter) also won her class in the Sweepstakes.
Under National Specialty Judge, Mr. Edd Bivin, Eddie (GCHG Camio's Educated Exemplar was awarded SEL Dog (CH Abbedale Brass Tacks x CH Camio's Educated Guess) This makes his second SEL and two AOMs at the National. He will turn 7 years old on 6/7/18. In 2012, he won Norwich Terrier Club of Greater Chicago Sweepstakes on the specialty weekend under Larry Cornelius. Robert was the winner in a very tough BBE Class and Robert's sister, Pippa, (Camio's Her Royal Hotness) won the 12 to 15 month bitch class.
On Friday AND Sunday, Brenda, CH Camio's Believe It or Not at Half a Bob was SEL. She sat out Saturday to let her Uncle Eddie have his day. So now she has 10 more GCH points. With very limited showing, she now has 20 GCH points (25 required for GCH).
On Sunday, both puppies out of Rosie (GCH Birchbay’s Wildside at Belfyre x GCH Camio's Defying Gravity) were awarded Reserve. Congrats to Diggs (Camio's the Wizard of Ahhhhs) Eileen Marie as well as my Camio's Cherry da Bomb for a great weekend
Congratulations are also in order for new champion Hillcrest's Sister Stella owned and bred by Erin Cottrill. Stella is an Eddie daughter.
On Monday Rosie and Glinda participated in the Norwich and Norfolk agility trial. Rosie was not quite ready so no Q for her but she tried hard. Glinda had one Q in Masters Standard and was awarded 2nd place.
Thank you to all the judges who recognized us and to my Norwich friends for their help and support. Congratulations to all who participated and a big thank you to the show committee for their hard work and a very successful show.
