ALSO A NEW ROM!!
And a new record this year for us in 2011:
Blue Heavens Forget-Me- Not "Sarah" and her three children from her 1st litter ALL finish in 2011 and "Sarah" also finished her Grand Championship too.. That was quite an accomplishment and all of her children finished under 1 year of age....And to add frosting....
