Some more fantastic news from Canada, with Tahvo (Am Grand Ch & Can Grand Ch Armahani Diamond Davvenasti) earning the final of his Rally Novice legs, to earn his RN title.
This was the final achievement he needed, to gain his Grand Champion Excellent title! This is the highest conformation title available in Canada, and Tahvo is only the second Finnish Lapphund in history to earn it. As well as the points requirement, it also requires a Best in Show, and the achievement of a performance title.
It is an impressive achievement indeed, and our congratulations and sincere thanks go to Tahvo's owners in the USA; Linda Marden, Kathy Knapp and Gene Hayes, and to his handlers in Canada; Connie Crohn (conformation and rally), Trina O'Neil (conformation) and Jade Unrau (rally). You are an amazing team and have surpassed any expectations I might have possibly had when I said goodbye to Tahvo at the airport all those years ago. I am so very proud of my special boy!
