I decided to take Aslak and Summer for a trip to Canberra for the Royal Show. Entries were due in months ago and at the time i wasn't sure if Summer would have her coat back in time. Surprisingly she's almost back in full coat, and just growing past that fluffy, puffy looking stage.
I injured my ankle a few weeks ago so I'd already decided I couldn't show either of them myself, and it was a bit of a nailbiter, as Summers handler arrived as the Baby Puppy Dog was being judged but fortunately the judging was at a reasonable pace and there was plenty of time to get into the ring.
Royal Canberra Show Best of Breed went to Summer.
Runner up Best of Breed and Dog Challenge went to Aslak.
Linda handled Summer through to the Group and Jeanette handled Aslak. Both the dogs did their very best and I couldn't be happier with their results as they both did so well on the day.
Other highlights included seeing Lexie and Alleria again. The first time i've seen them since the NSW show about 10 months ago. They're so grown up now and looking like Junior girls. Coat dropping on both, although Alleria has so much coat that its not as noticeable and they both showed well on the day. I was so proud of all of the Caleebra crew. It was a long drive home and we're tired but happy. And now having a break until the next big trip north, at the end of the month.
