OMG I am so excited! So PROUD!!!
I went to the mailbox and inside I found a very large envelope from the AKC. I fully anticipated the official certificate stating that Tino is a Champion. But this envelope was thicker – Bulkier – It was heavy! When I opened it, out came the medallion. The Bred-By Medallion. Tino is our first official Champion bred by me.
The AKC has a special Bred-By class that breeder/owner/handlers can enter their dogs in and if you you earn all of the necessary points toward a champion title from that class, you earn a bred-by medallion. Tino is our first and oh so deserving! He has made this journey so amazing for me. And I hope he is the first of many! He is the start to my program’s success.
