December 2022 - East Lansing, MI
Paloma, Summit and I went to East Lansing, MI. Super grateful to Derek for showing Summit & Paloma to perfection! Summit earned the crossover points each day with WD/ BOW, and added 6 points toward his CH and sister Paloma went BOS Sat and today had an AWESOME Best of Breed win adding many GCH points to her name as well (so close to finishing her Grand Championship in two short weeks)! What a special way to end 2022 with our swissies!

Sat and Sun she went BOS and earned points toward her GCH. Paloma (Kane x Dove) was owner handled in the BBE class for her AKC Championship.
October 2022 - National Specialty
Koen and I enjoyed our first National Specialty for Greater Swiss together. He loved that he got to bring along his Gg, Auntie Carolyn, “big Paloma” and “little Paloma”, and Sprinks aka Sprinkles. He never tired of watching us all run in circles… which is shocking! Thanks to the show committee for a lovely week in Ohio and to all of our friends for the comraderie, and enjoyment of the dogs we love and call family. Congrats to all the winners! Such an amazing group of Swissies and owners.
