This was not the first time we had the pleasure of showing with Getty. She and her family came down in October for the Tyler Kennel Club show where Getty got her Championship.
This gave us six Otterhounds entered which is quite an entry. Usually there is only one or two Otterhounds entered in a show. Many times there are none.
Cheyenne and Clara were entered in American Bred both days while Quick and Bonney were entered in Open class. Barclay and Getty were entered in Best of Breed.
On Friday Clara won American Bred and Quick won Open. Then Clara won Winners Bitch. That made the Best of Breed entry Barclay, Getty and Clara. Getty won Best of Breed and Barclay Best of Opposite Sex.
A New Hunter Otterhounds Champion
Even though Clara didn’t get Best of Breed for Otterhounds she still got the final three points she needed. Now she is Champion Hunter’s Dame Clara.
On Saturday Cheyenne won American Bred, Bonney won Open and then Bonney won Winner’s Bitch. That put Barclay, Getty and Bonney in Best of Breed. Barclay won Best of Breed and Bonney Best of Opposite Sex.
We wonder if the Otterhounds planned things. There were six Otterhounds entered over two days. Three placed on Friday – Getty Best of Breed the highest first, Quick first in Open and Clara first in American Bred. Then the other three placed on Saturday – Barclay Best of Breed, Bonney first in Open and Cheyenne first in American Bred. Six Otterhounds and each got a first.
We enjoyed having Getty and her family showing with us and hope to again.
