Ch Kan-Point's VJK Autumn Roses

How lucky can you get? Gene and I just happened to catch a one hour recap of the 2005 Westminster Kennel Club while watching TV Sunday. We had a blast. Can you believe how dorky we are?

We already knew that “Carlee” a German Shorthaired Pointer, had taken Best of Show but it was fun to watch all the dogs and get to see her “free stack” for ourselves. The handler takes her for a run around the ring and then comes back to put the dog in “the” pose for the judges. Carlee planted her back feet, took some baby steps forward with her front feet, stretched herself out, and that was THE moment as this photo tells. Totally without any direction from the handler, she hit the pose and held it for a full ten seconds. (This is freestacking.) She was "on!" The murmur in the crowd moved right into our living room as we joined in. WOW!
