Hey All,

Just wanted to share a brag about my Shiba boy, Ringo, who took his first point a few weekends ago, owner-handled by my twin sister, and as always, cheered on by our fabulous breeder and mentor. So proud of this entire team.

Ringo is doing his daddy proud, and his daddy is busy raking in the wins with a new BISS to his credit, and a current standing as the number three Shiba in the nation. Not bad for a black and tan!

Congratulations! He's a very beautiful dog (I admire Shiba Inus and Akitas from afar...would never own one.)

ShoStopper, do you by any chance know Showboat Kennels? She also has some awesome Shibas!

You have a very lovely boy. I've handled a few Shibas in the past and they are really an amazing breed. So very happy all the time (or my boys were). wink ;)

Look forward to seeing more photos of him.

Thanks so much, guys!

We are really excited about his future. He's out of lines we're intimately familiar with, dogs that we knew we wanted something by and out of, and is very much what were looking for in our newest show dog and companion.

We've been in the breed for about fifteen years now, and every day remains an adventure. Never a dull moment when you keep Shibas!

Creed, I'm aware of Showboat kennels (have seen her website), but I haven't met her or her dogs before, as we are on opposite sides of the country. The shows I attend are all Washington/Oregon/California shows (Arizona's made the cut too, but I've only gone there with APBTs). We've hit up Westminster a couple of times too, but just as spectators. Perhaps someday our paths will cross!

Ive always said this too!

anyways, He is beautiful, the breeder I got my standard poodle from shows shibas and has had a Westminster bib placement a couple of years ago with her shiba. Plus I saw her shiba pups which were cute ^-^

And of course, its a non-sporting dog so it's better than everything else(:

A BOB? Who was the dog? I am curious! I wonder if I was there that year.

The breeders I work with have had very good success at the Garden--the breeder of my b1tch has the first Shiba, to my knowledge, to ever get pulled in group, and multiple BOB wins at the Garden to her credit. A few years back one of my b1tch's granddaughters went BOS there, which was a blast to see (I had managed to visit that year). Both of my breeders have had multiple BISS winners and top ten breed and all breed dogs. With Ringo's sire doing so well this year, we can't help but hope he'll follow in some very impressive footsteps!

Thank you so much! I'm very lucky to have him in my life. He was long waited and planned for, and we learned that he was on his way the day after we lost our first Shiba to old age. I like to think the old man was looking out for us and put in a word...

Thats what her website says. It was a while ago, but still a great accomplishment(:

Oh yes, I do remember when he was being campaigned. I wasn't at the Garden that year and never did see him in person though. And yes, that's a win to proud of for all time.

Thank you! I'm a fan of his headpiece myself. I'm starting to get glimpses of his upcoming maturity, and it's pretty exciting.

Did you know?
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
