Grand Champion GCH Amitzu Special Edition "Eddie"

"Eddie" is out of:

CH Yingsu's Hav'N A GoodTime At Amitzu and CH Blue Hills Dark Shadow, ROM

An Amazing fast, fun run to a Grand Champion finish!! "Eddie" won his Championship on February 11th, at the Albany Cluster and the remaining 3 days picked up 6 Grand Champion points by beating a special. Then the very next weekend was the San Jose Cluster with the Golden Gate Shih Tzu Specialty and he got (three) 5 point majors, and (one) 3 point majors for a total now of 24 points in 11 days. I did a stupid thing on the 3rd morning I forgot to set my alarm to go move him up to the Best of Breed class or he may have finished his grand champion in 2 back to back week-ends!! The next show was a month away for us but he won Best of Breed the first day with 2 more points and is now a Grand Champion on March 25th, 2011. Very excited for our first Grand Championship since AKC added this new award, and did in such fast fashion.

Side note: Instead of showing Eddie that 3rd day, I helped good friend Diane Boone show her girl and we won winners bitch with a major to finish her...Congradulations Diane on another Champion!
