Romeo wins the Bichon Frise Club of San Diego 2023 Summer Specialty
Romeo wins the Bichon Frise Club of San Diego 2023 Summer Specialty…and more! After 3 years on hiatus. Hollyhock Alfa Romeo, “Romeo”, came back to the show ring in early 2023 with a few goals. #1 was to win a Bichon Frise Best In Specialty (BISS), #2 was to achieve his Owner Handler Gold award (NOHSG), and #3 was to achieve his Grand Champion Bronze award (GCHB). #1…CHECK, #2…CHECK, and we hope to check off #3 next weekend.
It was a wonderful weekend of 3 days at the Bahia Sur Kennel Club shows, right in our own back yard (Valley Center, CA). In addition to taking home the coveted BEST IN SPECIALTY on Saturday, he also got a Group 4 placement that day. On Friday and Sunday, he took Best Opposite, Best of Breed Owner Handled, and a Group 2 Owner Handled on each of those days. Now he’s just 2 points shy of finishing his Grand Champion Bronze title…then a few more shows to end the 2023 Owner Handled season and he will officially retire. This boy loves the attention he gets in the ring. He has been a pleasure to show and we’ll bring him back to the show ring for special shows whenever he likes!
