June 2005 ~ Asia steps back into the show ring for the first time since late last fall following a break after producing a beautiful February litter of puppies and grabs a Group II at the Hawkeye Kennel Club in Iowa City, Iowa on June 25, 2005 under respected Judge Sally Ann Baugniet. While getting a win photo, Mrs. Baugniet remarked that this bitch has an absolutely georgeous headpiece and expression and is a beautiful exquisite bitch. "Thank you, Mrs. Baugniet", for recognition of our girl!
Since her arrival in the Midwest for the 2003 American Manchester Terrier National Specialty, where she won the American bred class handled by Shannon Gorman, Asia has shown she has what it takes for the show ring. Following the National, she has been entered in a limited number of shows with some strong competition where she has grabbed Winner's Bitch, placed Best of Opposite Sex and come up from the classes for a Best of Breed win over the top ranked Standard Manchester Terrier for 2003 (Council Bluffs KC - Nov. 16, 2003 - Entry 1-4-1-1) for her first major. August 15, 2004, Burlington Kennel Club, Asia receives her second major taking Winner's Bitch and Best of Opp. Sex with Judge Frank Sabella, commenting 'what a stunning bitch'.
