I am very proud of my Tucker "Sunspun Snug As A Bug". Thursday May 6. Judge Sandra MacIntosh-Feret awarded Tucker 1st place in the Open Sable class at our American Shetland Sheepdog Association show of the year, our National, in Perry, Georgia. Even with COVID hampering a lot of Sheltie people who wanted to be there, there was a large entry.

Thank you Judge Sandra MacIntosh-Feret for the wonderful placement.

The Sunway Team (Nick Joines and Joel McCarty), once again did a fabulous job of preparing him. A Huge THANK YOU to Joel McCarty for expertly showing him in Open Sable Class and to Nick Joines for showing him in the Winners Dog Class.

I want to congratulate all the winners and the Sheltie people who were fortunate to earn a placement.
