Westies, Danny was Best of Breed and also made the cut under Phyllis Wolfish.

We then went on to show Danny at Eukanuba where he was 2010 Best of Breed! We did not exhibit Frankie and Jonjo, they were not entered or qualified so it was a nice relaxing day.

We then ended the year with awesome results in Winston-Salem, NC.

Danny got Back to Back Group 1s and a Group 2 to the #1 Dog in the US (at the time).

Frankie was Best of Breed all 3 days and also made a cut one day with Gerardo Reyes (Thank you so much for handling him!)

Thanks to judges David Kirkland, M.J. Carberry, and Peggy Beisel for these wonderful wins and what a way to end the year!

Danny finished off as #2 Westie in Breed points and #3 behind his half sister in All Breed! He garnered 8 Group wins this year, 12 Group 2s, 7 Group 3s, and 6 Group 4s for the year, not bad for a part timer, as well as several noted Specialty Best of Breeds! Thanks to all the judges that rewarded Danny this year! And congrats to Fred and Blair!


I want to thank all of my clients this year for their understanding and support throughout the year and with all the traveling.
