This weekend a group of us from The Greater Pittsburgh Dal Club decided to go to some UKC shows that were being held in Ravenna, Ohio. We had a blast and did some winning! There were 4 multi-breed shows and at the first one Tammy and Jolene went Best of Breed and on to a Group 3. At the second show Tammy and Jolene went Best of Breed and on to a Group 2. At the third show LaDonna and Gage went Best of Breed and on to a Group 2. At the fourth show Bizzi and I went Best of Breed and on to a Group 1. To make the weekend a little sweeter we also went on to BEST IN SHOW!!!!! Pictured below is Bizzi, I and the judge and the biggest ribbon I ever won!!!! Chris and puppy Ryder were there too and although they didn't get a Best of Breed win the were awarded Best Male at two of the shows.
Tammy and Jolene have already completed there UKC Championship and are now competing for Grand Champion. Bizzi, Gage and Ryder have a good start on acquiring their UKC Championships as well.
As most of you know the Topper - Gambit litter was a UKC registered litter because the AKC, at this point in time, won't register the NUA Dalmatians at the request of the Dalmatian Club of America. Many true Dalmatian enthusiasts across the country are willing to give up the AKC to incorporate the gene for Normal Uric Acid in their bloodlines. In the process we are learning what fun it is to show our dogs at UKC shows. The politics that have soured so many on the AKC are just not there at UKC.
