GCH CH Bret D Gabriel's Lost Art RN, CGC

If you were seeing spots before your eyes this last week, you were probably in Fort Mitchell KY  for the 2011 Dalmatian Club of America National Specialty.  More than 325 Dalmatians gathered April 28 for seven days of the iconic spotted breed.  The festivities culminated in the Best Of Breed competition, judged by Eva Berg this past Wednesday.  Hers BISS was GCH CH Bret D Gabriel's Lost Art RN CGC.  Best of Opposite Sex went to GCH CH Blackthorn Flower Power.  Winners Dog/Best of Winners was Blackflash Star's Comet and Winners Bitch was Dakota's the Closer

BOB Gabe was bred by Marie Zink & Betty Carroll, is owned by Kimberly Carey, and handled by Michael Pitts.  We hear that Gabe is Kim‘s first show dog.  Now, how lucky is that?  Congratulations to Kim and all of team Gabe and all the other winners!
