 CH. Aranmore Midnight Eclipse of Kingsway - aka "Rauri"

Rauri is our first conformation show dog and he is truly amazing! At 16 months of age, he went with handler Kurt Garmaker and finished his champion title in 17 shows. In this picture taken at Purina Farms, Rauri took Best of Breed over some very beautiful dogs. He is a true superstar! We'll be working with him on his Grand Champion title in the months to come.

Congratulations Fiona Macken and Rauri!
