We had a wonderful time at the 2009 Specialties in New Castle Pennsylvania. It was a chance to meet up with some old friends and make some new ones. Magics breeder, Kathy Dvorak was there with seven of her own dogs to show. Also there was Jodi Moline, she is Ellies breeder and co-owner. It was special to see her in the ring with Ellie at the National Specialty on Saturday. Suzanne showed Ellie at the other two Regional Specialties on Friday and Sunday. I showed Magic at the three Specialties and I also took Cinder in the ring on Sunday. The dogs all showed well, even if we didn't bring home the big prizes and it was a great experience. We learned a lot and had a great weekend.
