Bean's 2012 Yearling campaign was very rewarding.  Thank you to all the Judges who made it very special.

Bean earned both her AKC majors from the 6-9 month puppy class in January & in February finished her Canadian title shown a total of 6 times.

In June she won the Bred By Class at the AMSC National Specialty, Great Western under Breeder Judge Lynda Berar.  She then enjoyed a small specials career, it seems,

always up against some of the top dogs/top terriers in Canada and often in the company of one or 2 of Canada's top Miniature Schnauzers.

 

Unofficial top dog results to date have Bean at:

#5 Miniature Schnauzer, #1 bitch (Breed competition)

#6 Miniature Schnauzer, #2 bitch (Group competition)
