Mum Won!

Mum went with Paula to a dog show in Borås today. April was also there, competing in champion class, while Mum was competing in veterans' class. The judge loved Mum and could not believe how old she was, so Mum went on to beat a lot of other Shiba Inus and became Best of Breed! This was a splendid result by my Mum at her age. If I can be half as good at that age, I have to be happy.

Mum later participated in the Veterans' final, but the winner was a much younger dog, barely eight years old. She also competed in the Group 5 final, but it is very rare that any Shiba Inu makes any success there, and neither did Mum. Being Best of Breed at her age is still more than could be expected.

April finished fourth best bitch. This was not a bad result among all of these Shiba Inus, but April is not of the same lines as Mum and I.
