I was so thrilled with the unexpected 1 EXC in Young class from Sue Almey. It is a funny story because after the entire class was shown under this judge, and only the excellent were called back in, we were not one of the numbers (which meant RCG I'm Still Standing Shalimar, a.k.a. Sally Scendi, got a very good). O.k. I ran back up to our area, which was at the other end of the park, to get one of the dogs that was in another ring (we entered only one bitch, and four dogs were judged by an Italian judge in another ring), Shalimar was put in her crate, and I took out one of the dogs that was due to go in the dog ring. Coming back down with a dog, the ring steward from the bitches, ran into me and told me there was a mistake, and Sally was to come back into the young bitch ring for the final line-up. So I ran back to our area, put away the dog, and took Sally Scendi back to the ring. This only happened because Ms. Almey remembered Sally and wondered why she was not in the ring. Incredible, but true. Sally Scendi won the class and Best Young. Wow, was I happy.
Royal Crest Gold-n I’m Still Standing Shalimar - BEST YOUNG GOLDEN
It was so rewarding for our kennel that our ONLY bitch written into the Club Show , had such wonderful results.
Thank you judge Sue Almey for Sally’s BEST YOUNG GOLDEN award .
