Our last experience of the show day was amazing! Orso had taken group first in the morning and went back into the ring to compete for Best in Show Puppy. I was so nervous. He did so well! The judges awarded him Best in Show Puppy and I almost passed out – Mr. Dainard and Mr. Swartwood, thank you for such a great honor! I even let out a little scream from all the excitement! Everyone was clapping; it was great. Orso was so overcome from all the excitement that he tried to eat his Best in Show rosette! Below is the sequence of pictures leading up to him trying to eat his well-earned beautiful ribbon!
We want to thank our handler, Jessie Herzon, for working so perfectly with Orso this weekend. The show days were very long and exhausting and she was a total trooper. We also want to thank all the great judges that Orso showed under. All of you were wonderful and took the time to learn about and truly understand the Cane Corso breed. We also want to thank Drew Alderson and his team for being an incredible Superintendent for the shows and taking care of every last detail. IABCA puts on an excellent event and we highly recommend it for anyone who shows dogs. The experience was invaluable.
Below are some of our favorite photos from the Best in Show judging, along with some photos of Orso hanging out before the show, and of course, I have included the shots of Orso trying to eat his rosette. Professional show photos will be posted as soon as we receive them. Enjoy!
