Daphne is now known as BISS GCH Sawmill's Nymph of Riverwalk. Daphne won the Southeastern Regional Specialty in Perry, GA this past Sunday. BIG thanks to her handlers, Lenny Brown and Shelby Roberts, and to her other co-owners, Denise Glass and Judy Fletcher. Daphne is Grainger's littermate and half-sister to Oakley (they have the same mother, Deme). When her win photo comes, I will post it here. Wow - a HUGE accomplishment for Daphne! Thanks judge Dr. Bill Newman for this huge win! Daphne will be coming back to Raleigh when the puppies go to their homes. I cannot wait to snuggle my Daph again soon!
At the same show, Hobbs (Oakley's son from her first litter and littermate to River) won Best Puppy in Sweepstakes, and his grandmother Deme (who is Oakley, Daphne, and Grainger's mother) won Best Veteran in Sweepstakes under breeder judge Brenda Naylor. What an honor! Deme also went on to win Best Veteran in Regular Classes and received an Award of Merit from judge Dr. Bill Newman.
Hobbs also picked up some grand champion points by going Select Dog on Thursday and Friday before the specialty. Way to go Hobbs - who is only 16 months old! What a nice way to start his specials career by defeating some other nice male specials who are much older.
So proud of my Swissy family....
