Panda is a New Champion!!!

Introducing my first conformation champion, CH Nauti Herd Compact Flash CGC RN SN RL1 (AKA Miss Pandamonium, Best known here as Panda LOL!) who finished strong with two 5 point majors!

Her "reward" for finishing was that I took her in for BOB. We knew she wasn't going to win that (it was a HUGE class of very nice dogs) and that was fine) but she was SOOOO happy to be in the ring with me her tail didn't stop wagging and she never stopped smiling, all the way around!

She came into the ring, and the judge never took his eyes off her as she gaited around! After, as photos were being taken, he said the nicest thing. He said that Havanese have changed a lot in recent years, but that THIS is what Havanese should be! <3 I told him that she was not my first Havanese, but my first show dog, and he said I had chosen very well.

So now her (AKC) conformation career is over. I may show her in UKC, where the dogs must be owner-handled, just for the fun of it. But mostly it's back to the sports ring for us!

WOW! What an honor! Competition in conformation, obedience, agility, etc. is fine, but the best thing about Havanese is they are a great companion and house dog. And Panda is a Grand Champion in that category.

Tom King has said something like they are proud to have the occasional “Best in Show” but what they REALLY focus on is breeding dogs that are “Best in Home” They didn’t happen to breed Panda, but I think that’s what ALL Havanese breeders should focus on! I have three champions in THAT category!

It was also nice that I could share her final win with her breeder (also a good friend) Elizabeth O’Meara who was also there to watch her yesterday. She is the other person in the photo with me.

Congratulations, Karen and Panda!

I wanted to go back to your original post about how you ended up with Panda so soon after getting Pixel, but I couldn't find it. Can you please post a link to that thread?

This was the closest I could find ...

Oh! I just read to the bottom of that thread, and it does have the story of how you got Panda!
