Tessa did it again! (Updated with Pic)

Post by Karen » Sat Jul 19, 2008 3:04 pm

Tessa (Hope's Dream Weaver) went winner's bitch at the Anthracite Brittany Club specialty show last night for her 2nd major at a specialty. Tessa took the last 16 months off from showing to get ready for field work (she ran a couple broke stakes last season) so this was her first time back in the ring in a LONG time!

Congratulations. This time her paperwork is all in order and she will get to keep the hard earned points. She is a very nice girl who will finish that Ch title with style and flair for you, I'm sure. Did you show her this time?

Thank you Helen. Tessa is probably my once-in-a-lifetime show dog and I'm blessed to have her. What's really nice is the bitch can run and hunt too! I'm really looking forward to getting her right out in the field. She's got an excellent nose, is gorgeous on point and thinks bigger than Blaze on the ground (and you've seen Blaze run now).

Doug Tighe, her breeder and co-owner, handled her from the bred by class. I've been pretty successful showing Tessa at smaller all-breed shows, but I'm not skilled enough to successfully show against the high-powered handlers that attend specialty shows yet. I just don't do it enough. I do have her entered in a couple local shows and would like to finish her myself now that she has her majors (Doug might have other ideas though :D ), and I do intend to special her myself during the field trial off season at local all breed shows.

Congrats Karen. The three wins hardest to get are the two majors and the last point it always seems.

It's not how many breaths you have taken but how many times it has been taken away!

Has anyone noticed common sense isn't very common anymore.
