|Just like his mother, Ditto's road to his CH spanned roughly 9 months
from start to finish - he even finished his CH at the same show where
she earned hers 3 years earlier:
Moines Kennel Club shows in Sept. He took Reserve Winner's Dog to
the 4 pt major, & received some nice comments from Judge Monica
Ditto earned his very first points - a 4-point major - by going Winner's
Dog under judge Don Rogers at the Minneapolis Kennel Club shows in
November - & went on to be named Best of Winners.
Then at the St. Cloud show in December he did it again, earning 1
more point as Winner's Dog under judge Bev Capstick - & Best of
Continuing with his pattern, Ditto was named Best of Winners over
sister Georgie at the Terre Haute, IN show under judge Eric Ringle,
earning another point for himself.
At the Badger/Beloit KC shows in Jefferson, WI, Ditto was named Best
Bred-By Cardigan, earning himself another chance to have a little fun
in the ring by competing with the Bred-by Herding Group.
& finally, his big finish at the Summer Solstice Cluster, under judges
Bettie Krause, Virginia Lyne, Max Magder, & George Vukich.
Ditto finished his CH in amazing style at the 2008 Summer Solstice Cluster in
Cambridge, MN. He started the weekend with 6 points & by Sunday had
earned 10 more, going Winner's Dog all 4 days, including two 3-point majors.
Ditto finished completely from the Bred-by class, handled by both Diana &
Mackenzie. This earned him an invite to compete at the 2008 AKC/Eukanuba
National Championship, as well as being eligible to attend in 2009 & 2010.
|Ditto was the pick puppy from Berry's first litter. He inherited his mother's
sweet disposition & his father's ears! Best of all, he is a pretty good copy of
his grandpa Handsome, in more ways than one.
We look forward to the promising future this boy has as a representative of
Fernbriar Cardigans. He will be shown on a limited basis as a special, as
well as begin his training as an agility dog.
|eyes, along with his ever-happy attitude, & all of the days
problems just seem to melt away...
