This Fourth of July was celebrated with our very own firecracker, "GOTCHA", EBBTIDE GONNA GETCHA CD RA GSN JSN RSN, along with owners Susan Gore and Trish Maddan, attending the ASCA show in hot, hot Gridley, CA on the 4th of July weekend. They were saddened when I informed them I "don't do" dog shows in weather over 100 degrees. Hey, I'm old and have been doing this for 40 years: I can be choosy. Anyways, they certainly don't need me around anyway: Gotcha competed in ALTERED CONFORMATION and came home with THREE WINNERS BITCH, THREE BEST OF WINNERS AND THREE BEST OF BREEDS and one RESERVE WINNERS BITCH (it's good not to be too greedy...). WOW!
Congrats and thanks to Gotcha's handler, Trish Maddan who did a fine job out there. Also thanks to Raine Lutz for showing Gotcha on Saturday morning, for one of the Alt WB, BOW, BOB. And don't forget Susan the groomer, photographer and assistant - Well Done, Team!
Gotcha now only needs a major win to earn her Altered CHAMPION title! Rumor has it Team Gotcha will wait until October for the ASCA Nationals in Greeley, Colorado, to find that major. I like that kind of thinking...
So, it appears Miss Gotcha is our newest over-achiever (since Spencer is "on vacation", Judi??). We found out earlier this week Gotcha also qualified for the ASCA Nationals Obedience Finals in Novice! And you knew that she does a nice job out there in Agility, too, right??!!
Team Gotcha: Just awesome.
