July 10-13, 2003
River Cluster of Dog Shows, San Antonio, TX

This was one of the most exciting show weekends I have had in a loooooong time! On Thursday under judge Dorothy MacDonald, Monkee not only won Winners Bitch/Best of Winners but also took Best of Breed!

On Friday under judge Richard Bauer, Duri won the Bred-By class, and went on to Reserve Winners to a 4-point major. Kalipso was 2nd in a large Open class and went on to win Reserver Winners to a 5-point major. Monkee had taken 2nd in a large Open class, but lost to Duri for the Reserve.

Saturday brought more excitement! Monkee won the Open class and then went on to take Winners Bitch/Best Opposite Sex to FINISH!! She is now an AKC Dual Champion!

On Sunday under judge Barbara Dempsey-Alderman, Duri won the Bred-By Bitch class, then went on to win Winners Bitch to finish with her 4th major! Then in the BOB class, after much moving about the ring, Mrs. Alderman honored Duri by giving her Best of Breed!!

It will take a long time for us to forget this year’s River Cluster – what a thrill!
