"Everyone had a busy day with Sweepstakes and Obedience. I debated which picture to send next -- but this little girl has been stealing the show. She handled a dog in the veterans parade, in team obedience, and (in this picture) veteran sweeps (7-9 bitches)." -- Tom Jaskiewicz

Bernese and wee one!
