Below is Columbus' first advertisement, published in the magazine Dog News in June 2012. I don't think anyone in Team Columbus could imagine, how many supporters and friends Columbus would make during his stay in USA.
Owned by Laurie & Mark Ulrich, USA and Christina Areskough, Sweden.
Presented by Allison Sunderman.

At the end of the year 2012, America certainly had discovered Columbus, he ended up as Number One Russell Terrier of the Year and Top Ten Terrier of the Year. The Russell terrier got recognition in July 2012, so only six months of showing!

Columbus rank 10 in the Terrier Group at the end of the year,
with only six months since recognition of the Russell Terrier in July 2012.

Columbus ended rank 7 in All-Breed Competition 2013.

After Westminster KC Show in New York, Columbus was so famous, that he had to visit Atheys school again and show off. The local reporters was there and wrote down his story and took some pics.

The kids were not too impressed as Columbus could not do any tricks, but then he got an itch and rolled over on his back and snorted and wiggled and then he won them over!

After a hard days work the famous dog has to rest.
Here with daughter Ella and masters Mark and Athey.

Home sweet home!
