AKC Eukanuba in Long Beach 2006

This was our 1st year to Long Beach!
Love southern California in the winter time.

Everyone needs to go!! This is a very exciting show to attend if you have ever wanted to see beautiful dogs at their very best. This show is where the best of the best come at the end of the year.

Fun Fun Fun..............

Our Ch. Amitzu Famous Star "Antonio"
won the first Award Of Excellence under Judge, Jacqueline Stacy entered as a Bred-By Champion at the young age of 15 months.

We love staying at the makes this trip even more wonderful, plus it's just across the street from the Convention Center.

This was an amazing win for me! I never would have thought I could do this myself against top ranked dogs and their handler's. This will probably be my most memorable win ever...with my first bred-by Champion.

Three different years, three great fun years!

Around The Ring with "Eddie"

Just before ringtime
Last minute touch up

Lots of work and preparing, but I love it!

Enjoying seeing friends at all the shows and sharing each others good and bad day! Yeah, Diane and I both had a good day here.

Eddie won his Bred-By Dog class, so on to the winners class.

I enjoy showing my Shih Tzu when they are washed, groomed, looking beautiful and flowing around the ring. I know that is what drew me to this breed. Their great personalities are an added joy. I like to show and finish all my dogs in the Bred-By Class whenever possible.
Thanks for letting me share a another day around the Shih Tzu ring. Come join us...we'd love to share the experience of showing our favorite breed with you. Thanks, Therese
