Best of Breed

Do you know what I mean when I say Best of Breed? This is when the best dog of that particular breed is selected during a dog show. It is a pretty high achievement and I have only witnessed friends dogs getting this honor. But yesterday, yesterday, a French Bulldog that I bred achieved this honor at the Portland, Oregon Dog Show. 2Stars Lorage de Normandie (Norman) took Best of Breed. He "finished" last weekend at the Puyallup, WA dog show to become Champion 2Stars Lorage de Normandie and he just turned 1 on the 16th. I was walking on clouds the rest of the afternoon. He was being shown by my breeding partner, Cheryl Collins, and is owned by Val and Deb. Here is a picture of him from a few months ago. Well, they went back later to compete in Group but did not get anything. Group is where all the Best of Breeds for those breeds within that group (Sporting, Non Sporting, Hound, Toy, Working, etc) compete for group placement. Then it is the Best in Groups that compete for Best in Show. So as you can see, Best of Breed is pretty good.I showed his sister, Bindi yesterday and today at the show in Brooksville, FL but we did not get any points. Will head back up there tomorrow.
