CH GoldenMoon’s Misty’s Spicy Marjoram, CGC News from the 2013 prestigious Westminster Dog Show NYC
What a tremendous Blessing & privilege to have our precious “Marjie” place in the top 5 female Labs at the Westminster Dog Show. She competed against 54 other Best of the Best Labrador Retrievers with Judge Elizabeth “Beth” Sweigart on Tues. Feb. 12, 2013 in one of the world’s top dog shows.
This is a HUGE accomplishment for us here at GoldenMoon Labradors – we are very “small town” in comparison to the top winners. Even though unadvertised, and on her own non-political merits, our happy, black, unassuming Garrett County farm girl made us proud by making the “cut” and competing to the end. Her superb balance, movement and type were skillfully presented with ease by her talented & experienced handler, Kitty Burke, of Kindred Spirits Handling. (who also took Best Opposite Sex in Otterhounds & Tibetan Spaniels in Monday’s show). Kitty told us how proud she was of making it through the cut and right down to the end with Marjie. Labs are extremely competitive and having shown dogs professionally for over 30 years, Kitty knows all the “players” and much of the inside scoop. Even though Marjie was not her usual bouncy self & a bit under the weather, she showed and moved well enough to capture the judge’s eye 🙂 Marjie made us Proud & Thankful that God has Blessed our breeding efforts. This is fantastic !
Thanks to Dr Jane Bicks who formulates the absolutely best products for the superb health & vitality of our dogs! Marjie is our 3rd generation of “Life’s Abundance” GoldenMoon Labradors!!! and we wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂 www.AccentOnPets.com Thanks to Kitty & Kathy for their professional expertise in showing & behind the scenes loving care of our furry family companions. Thanks to the judges that recognized & approved of our type, structure & superb movement. Thanks to our friends & family for your support, well-wishes & prayers on our behalf.
