Began showing dogs in 1972 when my mother entered me
in the kiddie handling class at a fun match put on by Austin KC during
AquaFest. I won the Sportsmanship award, which I strongly suspect was given to
the kid whose dog pooped in the ring and/or bit them and they didn't cry. I
still have the trophy - a very tarnished silver plate bowl. I have lived with
and shown breeds from every AKC group except for Toys.
