Annie Does Dallas at six months old.


It was a typical hot summer week in Dallas over the Fourth of July in 2018. The Dallas Dog Show opened its doors and welcomed from Florida, Tuesday and George Hanna from Low Country Kennels- Georgia. The duo brought with them Diamonds are Forever MBIS / RBIS / MBISS GCHB AM/CAN CH and 2017 Best in Opposite Sex Westminster Kennel, Sparkles (one of Diamond’s pups, Mystique, and Shamu, Low Country’s beautiful finished Veteran Kerry Blue. Sparkles sister,Annie, aka Aslaug of the Low Country, lives in Dallas, so the two sister did Dallas together.

Under the scissors of Nick Fletcher and finally adjustments from Tuesday Hanna, Annie was groomed and ready… raw and new to the ring. The show spanned four days of competition and it was on Saturday, Annie took best of winners, her first major with three points. Her total for that show was six points. George Hannah spent hours with Terry Pace, Annie’s Dad, walking Annie on a show lead through out the complex helping her adjust to the surroundings. It was through patience and perseverance that it all unfolded. On Sunday, the Hanna’s had pushed off for Florida, and Nick and Terry prepared Annie for the ring, and a guest handler took her in.

Her point total for the Dallas Show was 6 pts and one major.
