The TBCC 55th Specialty was held in conjunction with the St. Petersburg show here in Tampa and even though it made for a very long day, it was filled with fun, friends and excitement. This was the first Juniors event for Hope in a Specialty and the first time for both of the girls to show in Breed at a Specialty. The humans aside, this was also the first show for Bella. All in all, it was a FABULOUS experience for everyone.
For the first time in TBCC history (that I know of that is) there were three entries in the Junior Showmanship competition and each in their own class. Of course, all three girls are very talented and all three did an amazing job. Best Junior Handler went to Rachel – Very well deserved 🙂
Bella made her way around the ring as the single entry for her class and so did Beamer. Beamer took Best Puppy in Smooth Coat – Granted, he was the only entry, but the ribbon sure is purty!
It was KC and Hope that blew me away because the partnership that they have built is clearly strong enough to showcase the amazing strengths of our sweet baby girl. She was in Open class at a breed specialty with a total of six entries – She took 4th!!! So huge and SO proud!
While the girls were showing in the ring, I was ringside all day, capturing all of the memories. To help raise funds for the club, I am offering the photos that I took for sale, with 50% of the proceeds going to the club. Be sure to check out all of the pictures from the Specialty and purchase your favs – The funds will go to a very worthy cause!
