Rumble Wins Group 3 at the Eukanuba
National Owner Handler Series Finals!!!

Rumble finished his Championship in only 3 weeks of showing.  Our fun of showing ended way too soon, so at the end of
2014, and Rumble being only 8 months old, I decided to continue showing him in breed for the National Owner Handler
competition.  Our first time in the ring as a Champion, Rumble won Best of Breed over top ranked Specials, and went
on to win an O/H Group 2 AND a regular Group 2.  I had no idea at the time, but this was just the beginning of an
amazing journey with our little guy.  Rumble was not only winning heavily in the Owner Handler competition, but he was also, steadily winning Best of Breed, placing in the regular Toy Group.  Rumble had his first BEST IN SHOW at 10
months of age, and his second at 11 Months of age!!  Rumble was regularly complemented on his beautiful head, his
incredible movement, and his overall balance.  He became known for his relaxed personality outside of the ring, and
turning on his charm inside the ring.  It wasn't long before our little guy had his own little fan club, and was loved by
many.  I ended up showing Rumble in breed for right at a year.  We accomplished so many things together, so much
more than I could have ever hoped for.  He made so many of my dreams as a Breeder/Owner/Handler come true.  

With Rumble's Uncle JJ, GCH Hill Country's Tag I'm It, set to retire from his incredible show career at the end of
2015, Kevin and I were not only thrilled, but truly honored when JJ's owner, Carolyn Koch, expressed the desire to
continue on with our Hill Country family, and give Rumble the opportunity to shine to the rest of the world, just as she
had done with our little JJ.  Rumble would go home to his new family/team at the end of the Eukanuba Championship
show in in December (2015).  He did so, but only after showing his little heart out for me at Eukanuba, winning his
first Award of Excellence, in addition to, Best of Breed Owner Handler, Best Bred-By Exhibitor, Owner Handler
Group 3, and a beautiful Bred-By Exhibitor Group 3!!!

Rumble started out 2016 with his new team of Owner, Carolyn Koch, and handler, Esteban Farias, and he has certainly
not disappointed!!!  He came out with a bang, winning Best of Breed at Westminster, has since had multiple Best in
Shows, Best in Specialty Shows, NUMEROUS Group wins, and currently holds the ranking of #1 Pug in the Nation!!!
