At the shows

Liberty's journey toward her AKC championship title continued over the weekend at two all-breed shows in Chula Vista.
She was the youngest Irish Wolfhound competing, 11 months old and in the 9-12 class.
That stopped no one.
She won Winner's Bitch on Saturday and we thank our judge, Mrs. Lee Canalizo, for such a lovely win.
She won Winner's Bitch on Sunday and Best of Winners, and we thank our judge, Mr. Eugene Blake, for choosing her and also for awarding her Best of Winners over the Winner's Dog.
We were very privileged to have such respected hound judges at this show. We were thrilled they appreciated Liberty and how she represents the hard work of Glenamadda, Starkeeper, and Limerick kennels.
And we were very fortunate to have the talented Erin Hines handling Liberty.

The show each day was a lot of fun. The grounds were wonderful, the rings on well-groomed grass, the weather was overcast and not too hot or too cold, and we loved chatting with our wolfhound competitors. We came early and stayed late.

Liberty's journey so far:
3 points (a major), Orange Empire Dog Club, age 6 months, thank you again to our judge Mr. Elliott Weiss.
1 point on Saturday
1 point on Sunday
total  5 points! We're so proud of our puppy for these achievements.
The Goal is 15 points, including two major wins of at least three points each.
