The ISCA National Show - congratulations to ES member Xavier Vazquez Bracho and Parley

I was very fortunate to be able to watch the Irish Setter Club of America's show at Santa Rosa, California, and am still buzzing from what must have been a unique show. At first there was so much to learn about the US show system, and from watching the preparation and presentation of the dogs - such dedication and professionalism. Then it was obvious that there was an exceptional judge in Donald Sturz who gave each entry concentration and respect regardless of the status of the handler. He was rewarded when Xavier came into the Open Bitch class with his exquisite, lively, loving setter, Vabrill Parley. She had a popular win in that class and was Best of Winners and returned as an outsider the following day when over a hundred Breed Champions and Grand Champions were judged in scorching heat. The generous crowd loved her and her non-stop stylish ring presence and were thrilled when Donald gave her Best in Show.
