I heard from Patch's owner yesterday.
My little man earned a "Reserve Best Puppy In Show" (just below "Best In Show") last weekend at a UKC conformation show!!! (only four months old, so it was a "non-licensed" win). Ben handled Patch, using a clicker to reward the desired behaviors. I am so proud of them!
On the ironic side, Patch's original buyer rejected him the day before he was to take him because of the small amount of white on his chest, and (despite wanting a 'pet quality' puppy, and never seeing the pup in person) said "I could not take a dog with white hairs in the show ring!!"....UH..HUH....
What is the best little icon for "NEENER NEENER NEENER!!!!!"

Way to go Patrick! How could anyone not see how handsome he is?! I thought the white on his chest was amazing, he reminded me so much of my Ozzy. Sounds like he is destined to follow in the family traditions!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Congrats to Patch, his new owner, and you. Neener, neener to the person that rejected him.
