Greyhound Club of Northern California Spring Specialty 2013

On April 20 the Greyhound Club of Northern California had its spring specialty. Although the class size was small-no majors in bitches or dogs, the specialty had a large specials entry-11 greyhounds.
Best of Breed was  the one and only Echo!  GCH Aragon Black Ice VCD1 RE AX AXJ JC.
As no show photo has arrived to date this picture was taken in our back yard.
Best of Opposite Sex was Darby! GCH Aragon Aroi Silver Lining CD RE. Winners dog was Goose! Aragon Golden Canyon JC. Reserve Winners Bitch was Emma! Aragon Emerald Hills JC. Reserve Winners Dog was Riser! Aragon Full Moon Rising JC.
Select Dog went to Bruce! GCH Aragon Helios Blue Spruce. This gave Bruce his last Grand Championship point. Breeze Ch Aragon Northern Lights TD JC earned an Award of Merit.
No one entered in obedience-probably a first time but the two dogs who were planning on entering Echo and Darby were both out of training with muscle injuries.

It was a good specialty for the Whisper and Lyric puppies. In addition to the fun of the show and visiting friends, it was nice to have 7 of Whisper's puppies back together again.

Missing from the photo but entered was Riser- Aragon Full Moon Rising JC
