Spud’s first Conformation Fun Match

Spud

When we were in Corvallis and the Agility Trail there was a “Fun Match” going on in the barn next door. I entered Spud to see how he’d do. His movement was awesome. The judge told me; “He was a beautiful little dog and he has a perfect top line and tail set”. She really liked him and said he has a very bright future in the Show ring.
