Judge Rusty poses with writer Vanessa. Vanessa and mom are Mini Lop breeders who will be driving from Oregon to Ohio for the Mini Lop National in May.
Sunday was the last day of the three-day show at Myrtle Point, Oregon. Show D was the final all breed show; Ava won her second all breed Best In Show under judge Joy and a very nice English Lop was pick the Reserve In Show. The night prior, she also won the specialty Best In Show under judge Josh.
"The driving up to Myrtle Point was challenging; as soon as I arrived there, the warm reception just melt away the frigid temperature. Dawn's wonderful hubby specially cooked a piece of salmon for me, absolutely delicious. Just for that salmon, it's worth the trip.
My two tort does alternate the wins under excellent judges from WA, FL, TN and OR. Ava won all breed BIS twice and specialty BIS once while Mesa won all breed BIS once and all breed RIS once. Needless to say, I am very proud of my girls.
My drive home was uneventful, and that's the way I like it. It was dry and sunny most of the way; I made it home in 9 hours and 20 minutes.
There will be more photos posted."
