New Champion!

He did it....I can barely believe it....HE DID IT!

CH Visions Cornerstone Dream On* pending AKC confirmation/approval

Today under Judge Roberto Velez-Pico Bug picked up that final elusive point. I literally hugged every single person outside the Cardigan ring. Granted I knew most of them from other shows or online (Hi, Joanna. Nice to meet you in person!). I very nearly cried. I think I am still in shock.

I have this whole grid paper outline of upcoming shows I planned on entering and I can throw it away!! Hooray!!!

Bug was being a nudge before the show barking at the girls. He was very excited by Joanna's Friday and a cute sable girl. I had to move him away from them. Kerry and I hoped that energy would transfer to the show ring and I guess it did.



Bug gets one more fat-boy meal as a reward and then the diet begins tomorrow!! A couple of dear friends have jokingly said, "The dog finishes his championship and what does he get? A diet!?" I know, I know. Poor thing.

I hope you know when I saw this I let out a huge yahoo! Congrats!
(And maybe the diet can be after a celabration of some kind, DQ, Sonic or Magics favorite Cheeseburger?)

Congratulations! I know how hard you've worked to make this happen. Why don't you let Bug have the weekend? Diet starts on Tuesday? Grandpa Sam says the traditional family reward for a great job is soft serve ice cream!
