Re: we have a winner!

In this case, the purple is best in class, but .... His class was 12-15 months, and there were three animals competing, Dram and two bitches. So he's got a best in class, a Winners Dog (bein' as how he was the only dog there), and Best of Winners, which means he was judged a better exemplar of the breed than the winning bitch. We think he's gonna be glad to get home, but that won't be till tomorrow.

It's not over yet, so there might be more (or not),  but ... Wee Dram won ribbons in his first show! Best in his class, Winner's Dog, and Best of Winners. I don't really understand what all that means, but it's three ribbons and one point, and we're all happy for him. Two pix: one getting ready, one with the ribbons. (I understand there will be a more formal pic later.)
