Standing on the travel crate that served as our grooming table, Stirling casually yawned as we stood ringside waiting for the Best In Show competition on the last day of the Fairbank’s cluster. Sasha, a kerry-man and acquaintance we see annually at this show, asked in a hushed tone whether we might ought to work Stirling up a bit. I shrugged, and mumbled that would likely not be necessary.
Soon enough it was our turn. …Twice in a row actually, as the National Owner Handler Series Best In Show competition directly preceded the regular Best In Show competition; and we were in both…
Upon entering the ring Stirling came alive and showed his heart out. Another deserving team was awarded Best In Show. But I am sure Stirling’s terrier antics were highly entertaining.
And I could not be prouder of my boy crowned in triple blues!
