The RoundAbout crew traveled to Minneapolis, MN this past weekend for the Land O' Lakes Kennel Club dog show. The show location was excellent, exhibitors and spectators were friendly, and we had lots of fun on the town. We are definitely adding this show to our annual calendar!
In addition to good times, the gang also cleaned up-- with Robin finishing his AKC Championship!!! On Saturday, under Judge Larry Sinclar, Robin (Drakesleat Round Robin), co-owned with our dear friend Lisa Kennell, was selected Winners Dog and Ch. Karen won Best of Opposite Sex for three grand champion points!
On Sunday, under Judge Micheal Doughtery, Wisty won Winners Bitch for 2 points, Robin was selected Winners Dog and Best of Winners, and Karen again took Best of Opposite for three more grand champion point! Needless to say, it was a very happy (but cold) car ride home!
We were also thrilled to find out that Robin's daugther and Karen's litter sister, Jackie (Roundabout Gleneagle Off and Running) won Winners Bitch for a 4 point major on Sunday at the Palm Springs Kennel Club show. She was Reserve Winners on Saturday. A few weeks ago she won First Place in a very competitive Hound Group-Owner Handler competition. Jackie only needs one more major to complete her AKC Championship! Congratulations to Jackie's owner, John Wieckhorst, on their success!!! We are so grateful for all the love and hard work he's investing in his special girl!
