We can't believe how fast Macintosh finished his championship ... and by 8 months of age! He finished in North Carolina and went on to earn 4 points and a major toward his Grand Championship in Columbiana, AL this past weekend. Macintosh will do some training for AKC Tricks and Canine Musical Freestyle over the summer, then we will resume with conformation after, hopefully, his head and chest have filled out.
Here he was just last December during his 1st piano lesson ....
And look how much he grew in 2 months (here he was at the February Tallahassee show) ....
And another month later .... here he is at the March North Carolina show where he finished his championship . . . . .
And this past weekend at the Columbiana, AL show where he won Best of Breed, and Best of Breed Owner Handler, and Best of Opposite and a bunch of other fun things plus earned 4 points toward his Grand Championship and a major.
To give you an idea of how much more growing/maturing he still has left, here is Macintosh (in the middle) in between his mother, Champion KK, and grandfather, Grand Champion Rocket Man.
