Keep up-to-date on the latest happenings in the

Hi everyone,

We went to the Clermont county dog show
this weekend and had a great time.
Shine got two legs of the obedeince title CD
( you need three legs to get the title ). He
passed both days so that gave him two legs.

He also got a Group 1 (first place in the
working group) in a puppy match that was
held right after the main show on Sat.

He did well in the regular conformation part
too, but no first places there.
An honorary member of our club, SADIE,
turned 10 on Sept 4th.  Sadie may not be a BMD
but she is loved by all and cherished by the
Gartmann family.
to sweet SADIE !!
CAESERS and their pups

pool day for the dogs!!
Pollacks, Caesars and Bartizeks
are also part of a BMD and
Golden playgroup that meets
