    Iris is from the Spring 2015 "Dream" litter between Simba and Magnolia. She started her show career just before turning a year of age and won a point. Her second weekend out she was undefated in the classes to pick up 6 more points with a major! Her third weekend was even more successful, picking up 6 more points with a major, 2 Bests of Breed over specials and a Group 2! She finished her championship a few days later winning another Best of Breed over a special at the Potomac Hound Club and won a Group 4th over the weekend in very stiff competition! She won her first point toward her field championship in her very first trial! Her first weekend out in 2017 she won her first group! She finished her Silver Grand Championship on her 2nd birthday. Iris won Best in Specialty Show at the 2017 IHCUS National Specialty! During the Orlando pre-shows of the AKC National Championship in 2017, Iris completed her Gold Grand Championship, becoming the first second-generation Gold Grand Champion Ibizan Hound! At the AKC Royal Canin National Championship, Iris was Best of Breed in an entry of 17 Ibizan Hounds as well as Bred by Exhibitor Best of Breed! In February 2018, Iris became a third generation Westminster Kennel Club Best of Breed winner after her mother, Magnolia (2014/2015) and her grandfather, Sergio (2010)! In November 2018, Iris became the first breeder-owner-handled Best in Show winning Ibizan Hound in AKC history! In December 2018, Iris was once again Best of Breed at the AKC Royal Canin National Championship in an entry of 14 Ibizan Hounds and went on to win a Group 3rd in the Hound Group! On July 28, 2019, Iris became the first Ibizan Hound in history to earn the Platinum Grand Champion title from the AKC after a little over 3 years of showing.
