We set off for Victoria this weekend to attend the FLCV Open Show. Really it was just an excuse to catch up with friends and introduce the new kids on the block to a lot of Lappies.
Titan and Summer behaved really well considering all the new experiences for them both. This was Summers first show in Australia and she really did remarkably well. Titan took the whole thing in his stride, he is such a cool puppy. Nothing really bothers him at all.
Titan was awarded Opposite Minor Puppy in Show after being beaten by the bitch in the Class run-offs.
Summer was awarded 2nd in her class to a lovely puppy bitch from Kalevi Kennels.
The FLCV ran some novelty classes afterwards and here we did even better. First Mel insisted on taking Titan in for the waggiest tail class. Of course, Titan was in there, wagging his tail like crazy and generally enjoying himself. He laps up all the attention and i cheered when he won the class. Such a delightful puppy.
Summer had been seeking attention by barking most of the day so we thought we'd put her in for Noisiest Lappie. I was surprised when she didnt make a sound at first, but eventually she grew tired of being ignored by the other dogs in the ring and thought she'd make sure everyone knew she was there. I don't know that i was as excited to win that class. Hopefully we never repeat it.
Then Glen took Mischa in for the Best Trick competition and Mischa put on a sequence of tricks to impress the judge. It worked, and Mischa won the 'Best Trick' Class and some chews. Mischa will do anything for treats and likes to show off her tricks so she really enjoyed this class.
After catching up with everyone, we had a quiet night and drove home the next morning. I can hardly wait to do it all again in another 6 months.
