    No, I brought 3 of them, but this was the only one awarded. One of them is quite a bit smaller and the other one was on its way out. They pulled all three to compare them.

    Congrats! I can see why it was awarded. The colors are very smooth and rich, and the shape is excellent.

    Smart move taking three in. Greatly improves your chances of coming away with an award! I use to take in a few dogs in to improve the chances of getting an award on the one I wanted award on. It worked most of the time. Once in awhile it would back fired and the dog got the award:D
