Hello all! Just had to share this cause I think it's kinda funny. I have a bitch that I wasn't really all that excited about. Her mother hadn't produced much for me and I had other pups that I thought were better. I decided I did want to try and finish her though and then I would probably retire her.

She finished in 4 shows - never less than Best Of Winners and last night, she went BIS!

All the planning, looking at pedigrees, putting pups in shows to figure out the best one and a bitch I didn't plan to show and nearly FH'd turns out to be one of the best I've bred. laugh :D

Now I'm gonna wonder every time I FH a pup, if that one was another one like her. Lol!

Congratulations on the BIS! It is funny how it’s sometimes the ones you really don’t think will be much that turn out to be some of the best dogs.

Thank you! It really shocked me when I saw it.

May have to eventually breed her to Cuban Cigar - 2 BIS winners as parents! wink ;)

Congrats, and yes it makes you start to doubt everything you have been doing. Like it's not hard enough to decide what to keep, right?

Breeding BIS to BIS sounds great but, well you know what I mean.

Exactly! I'm over my limit right now and I already couldn't decide who to FH to get back under. Now I'm really having an even harder time. Lol!

Oh, I know that breeding BIS to BIS would be the same crapshoot it always is but it would be fun to try. happy :)

Congrats and I hear you! I used to have. A straightforward plan for my kennel before Afghans hit 100 SOP. Now I’m forced to sell or FH 100 Sops cuz ya can’t keep ‘em all ?? but I never know if I’m keeping “the right one”.

Right now I am showing I think 10 of them. And that's just one of my breeds (though the main one). Today I havev to go through and decide which ones I really want to show and which ones need to stay home. But then how many can you have just staying home on the couch eating? It never ends.

Did you know?
The two largest American dog shows after Westminster are the National Dog Show (which is televised on Thanksgiving Day by NBC, usually after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade) and the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.
