Read about King Tommy in these earlier posts:
And Monique's exciting account of his latest win: Most Handsome Dog at Scruffts, UK!
Monique's story below:
Instead of behaving like people in England do, smile and gently place my dog on the 1st place podium, I ran to the judge, an elderly man dressed in tweed, hugged him, kissed him and yelled out 'I love you!'
|Being groomed for the big day!|
|On the way to London!|
On D-Day the journalist and a couple of friends, including Rochelle Lucas who owns beautiful Indy Kala, all met up with us at the show grounds in London. The TV crew had filmed us on the way to the show. I clearly stated on camera that 'we are not the underdogs, we are the top dogs!'
Marina Scott is a world champion handler and TV commentator on dog shows; she was our judge, young and different from other judges.
When it was our turn a microphone appeared and I was asked to tell about Tommy's life and his achievements. I start talking and then I looked down at Tommy to see him playing with the judge. Not sure it's a good thing or a bad thing.
Tommy, ever the calm dog, posed like a pro in front of the cameras, the TV crew, and everyone wanted to touch him and take a photo.
