Yes, I was very proud of Aston too. He did wonderfully. His sister took a second because the eb wraps onto her belly.
My chins that I took did well. I couldn't have been more pleased. Allure took color section champ female for the female violets, Ranger a 3rd, because i messed up his fur. Rasputin took a third as well but he was small compared to some of the monster whites. Raindrop took a second which is awesome for a violet wrap. I can't say I am less than pleased for the way they placed at nationals.
It was a great experience, lots of fun, and lots of crappy driving, but well worth it. Pics and stories later. Must visit with family.
