An AWESOME weekend in November!

Posted on Updated on

Fox River Spaniels owners entered the Heartland Welsh Springer Spaniel supported entry in Winona, MN the first weekend in November.  It was a huge win for us.  Higgins went Best of Breed both days earning a 1st place in owner-handler and a 4th place in the regular group.  Our first time ever in the group rings!  Dibbins went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Opposite on Saturday.  Winnie went  Winners Bitch and Best of Winners on Sunday.  Sully went Winners Dog on Sunday.  Dilly went Best of Opposite on Sunday.  Cammie Select Bitch also on Sunday.  And our newest, Saylor, took a group 4th in Best Puppy on Saturday.  We pretty much took all the wins this weekend – truly a weekend to remember!  Awesome friends and beautiful dogs.  So proud!
