I had a nice surprise awaiting me in the mail today - from AKC of all places. There was a shiny new silver on gold medallion! On the back it says Breeder-Owner 5 Champions. Here is the explanation from AKC's web site:
These Special Medallions are in recognition of each individual's valuable contribution to the sport of purebred dogs, who as the breeder-owner-handler of five (Silver) or ten (Gold) different dogs that have become champions of record and received an original Bred-By Medallion through their participation in AKC Events.
The dogs I finished exclusively from the Bred-By Exhibitor classes are:
- Am. Can. CH Gryffyns Once N Future King, JC SGRC (Arthur)
- Am. Can. Mex. CH Gryffyn's Aeyrie Caliburn, JC (Burni)
- CH Gryffyn's Aeyrie Anduril, JC (Duri)
- SBIS Am. Can. CH Gryffyn's Aeyrie Alegria, SC LCM (Sassi)
- Am. DC Can. CH Gryffyn's It's All About Me, SC FCh (Solo)
