Our beautiful Fleur (Armahani Iolite Ilo (AI)) became the first of the Iolite puppies to earn her Australian Championship today, doing it in style at the Tasmanian Ladies Kennel Club with a Best Junior in Group under Queensland judge Mrs A Everson in her first show in the junior class.
Fleur was the last of the Iolites to first enter the ring, and the first to finish, so she has done very well indeed. Although she doesn't always see a lot of competition in Tasmania, her points included a couple of lovely wins in Melbourne against some top winning Lappies, and she has numerous class in groups, so she certainly has the goods!
To make the day even more special, "big brother" Benni (Aus Ch Armahani Heliodorr Hulivili (AI)) took out his third Best in Group at the same show!
A big thanks to owner and handler Rachael Holloway for doign such a fantastic job with these two kids!
