We had the pleasure of attending our first SVCA National Specialty, and boy what a week it was! The specialty was held in Prescott/Dewey, AZ and we spent 6 days enjoying all things Vallhund. Our little boy Griffin blew us all away by taking home some top awards! Here is the run down:
Lavendel Skyward Griffin Av Solborg "Griffin"
- Best Puppy in SVCA National Specialty Sweepstakes
- Best of Winners in SVCA National Specialty from Bred-By class (5 point major)
- Best Bred-By-Exhibitor at SVCA National Specialty
- Best Puppy in SVCA Regional Specialty Sweepstakes
- Best of Winners at SVCA Supported entry from Bred-By class (5 point major)
- Reserve Winner's Dog on Saturday at all breed show
He also showed amazing instinct and potential during a Swedish style herding instinct test on dairy cows with Jenny Pleym.
Thank you Ivy Underdahl for mentoring me and allowing me to show this special boy. I am over the moon with how our Griffy is turning out! Can't wait to see where the first Lavendel boy takes us!
