It was a great experience for Ffinnigan. His first time away from home and with everything being strange including the location and the handlers and caregivers. We could not have asked for better handlers than Amy and Phil Booth of Blue Rose Kennels for making this experience a positive one for Ffinnigan. Thank you!
Additional thanks to Leslee Peth for transporting him home.
Ffinnigan's point total is now 13 with one major.

Khariz Omen Ffergus Arabica is a new Montenegro Champion. He also won his first CACIB towards his FCI International championship. Congratulations to Ffergus and his owner, Diana Andrysiak. Thank you also to Kinga Iwaniuk for posing him for this beautiful picture.
This week was an especially sad week at Khariz. My darling Danger left me at 13. He was an incredibly sweet soul and while he had a long and full life, the gap he leaves will be deeply felt.
Summer has also passed. A rude and sorrowful surprise to find she had hemangio sarcoma. A stealthy, destructive cancer. She was far too young.
Sleep well my darlings. You are well loved.
