In addition to his success with Johnny, Blaine also took home the Award of Merit with another of his show dogs, Dreamer. This accolade further solidifies Blaine’s reputation as a rising star in the dog show community. The Award of Merit is given to dogs that exhibit exceptional quality and conformity to breed standard.

Blaine Crowder’s achievements at the 148th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show are a source of immense pride not only for him but also for his supporters back in Groveland. His story is a shining example of what can be achieved through passion, hard work, and a deep love for dogs.
