Jam awarded Select Bitch at the BASS Show!

Jam with her Grand Champion Select ribbon
We always knew Jam, CH Grayhart's Purple Haze,JH,NA,NAJ,NSD,V, (Parker x Trixie) was special but now she is an official "special" in the dog show world.  This means that when a dog completes its AKC Championship title, they continue to compete to win Best of Breed, then compete in the Sporting Group and go for the big prize - Best in Show. They can also compete to achieve the relatively new AKC title of Grand Champion.

Jam's first time out as a special was yesterday at the Big Apple Sporting Society show.  She showed beautifully and was awarded Grand Champion Select, earning her first Grand Champion points!  She beat other very nice specials and I'm thrilled that she was recognized this way, especially being owner/breeder handled.
