Nickel was invited to participate in the 2009 Eukenuba National Championship Competition due to having earned her AKC Championship from the Bred By Exhibitor Class. She was one of 25 poodles invited to Eukanuba that year.
I decided to make a political statement and showed Nickel in a Historical Continental. There was quite a bit of chatter about it at the show...Some people were outraged and some people came up and thanked me. I succeeded in my goal as I had a variety of people asking me about it, including Judges, special guests, exhibitors and visitors. Here is Nickel on the grooming table before we went into the ring:
Here are a few pics taken from a video you can see the vast difference between a 'normal' show continental and the HCC.
