In years past I had a handler who showed a couple of my Bichons. In 2002 I purchased a Maltese puppy, bought our Class A motorhome with plans to travel and show her myself. Since I worked full-time, I figured it would take me a couple of years to get her championship so the motorhome would come in handy. However, she finished in just a few months. I decided not to special her and she has been our pet ever since and has traveled on every trip we have taken.
In the past two years I've rescued two chihuahuas so I guess I am out of "showing" and into "rescuing".
Wherever the next year takes you...enjoy the ride
