There’s one thing I’ve always wanted for my princess, one thing that’s eluded her at every specialty we’ve entered…. until 06th August, 2016.

Abby was awarded her very first Specialty Challenge, and converted it to her first Specialty Best In Show! I can’t believe it! She has always been the bridesmaid with 5 reserve challenges at specialties under her belt.

A huge thank you to the judge on the day Dr Catharina Linde Forsberg. It was certainly a dream come true, and I got to be on the end of the lead to handler her to this amazing win. Huge thanks must go to her Breeder, Sara Skinner, for showing her in her class. Due to my injuries (which subsequently got worse on the lap of honour), I wasn’t able to show her the whole way. Without Sara showing her in her class, I don’t think I would have made it through to BIS with my princess.

Dreams do come true! Abby has had an amazing year this year, with multiple BIG’s, and now a specialty BIS… we will push on and hope to achieve my goal of obtaining her Grand Champion title. Wouldn’t that be awesome… the dream continues!

I just love this girl so much, we’ve had some amazing wins together.
