Kathy's report on Isleifur's adventures at the 2016 National Specialty:

"What a wonderful time we have had at the National specialty. Stonecrop Isleifur Vikingursson began by qualifying in both the am and pm herding events to earn his AKC Herding Instinct Certificate. At the show on Friday, he continued to make us proud by placing first in 6-9 month dog and then being awarded reserve winners dog. On Saturday at the Specialty he won Best Puppy in Sweepstakes and Best Puppy in regular classes. I think the ribbons are bigger than he is! Thanks to all you special people who supported us, those we have known and those I have just met!  The Icelandic Sheepdog people are such a wonderful and fun group of people!"
