In addition Mickey also earned the Bahamian Kennel Club championship title.

The outdoor show was held at Nassau Botanical Gardens under Big Top tents. 'The rules and organization are very similar to the AKC shows. The weather was clear and beautiful for the show except for the unseasonable heat. The Judge Jacqueline Rusby a citizen of Canada has been a licenced Judge for over sixteen years judging in Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa and USA . She is currently licenced to judge all groups and best in show in the United States by the AKC. Canada and the Bahamas.


The BKC win was both Mickey and Janet’s first Best in Show. After winning Janet said it was the biggest thrill of her life when the Judge walked over to her and handed her the Rosette. Mickey was awarded a gift bag of goodies from Show Sponsor Purina and a Bahamian Color Print by a noted local artist. Although Mickey didn't have much to say after his big moment, Janet spoke for him in local TV interviews and for an article to appear in the local tabloid newspaper The Punch.
