Not long ago I wrote a post about Rico, who is soon to be called a veteran. I have just received his latest photo and he looked as great as he did as a younger, fit, elegant, all well put together… However, we can say, a photo is just a photo, and we know the magic they can do. Well, only few days after I got that photo, I received some FANTASTIC and certainly unedited news. I didn’t know that his owner, Yvonne, had entered him to Split, and when I heard that he won Best of Breed on the 3rd and 4th nights of show (2nd night BOB was Diego who also won the group) I was all over the moon!!
But not only that, I have to say that Danish & Swedish Champion LET IT BE DE TRUFAS NEGRAS aka RICO is now INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION!! Such results for this, almost 9 years old dog, make me think about several things, and without going to be boring on personal reflections, one is to remind myself that is never too late to go on, or finish what we started. Second is to confirm that great things remain great all time. And, next, is that I still believe of the importance of the team work, trust and confidence. Rico, is, without doubts, a Great dog, but he wouldn’t be looking so amazing without the effort and care his owner puts in. So, THANK YOU, Yvonne, once again, for taking care of the boys the way you do.
Rico is owned by Yvonne Broberg, kennel New Era, Sweden.
