Shows Shows Shows!
We had a 3 day weekend for dog shows about an hour away at Tarago. We met with Shell and the lovely Veikko (half sister to Dolce). Mel had Quinn (another half sister of Dolce) up for the weekend.
I was showing Mischa and it was the young Titan's first shows. Each day we arrived with minutes to spare to get in the ring for Baby Puppy Sweepstakes. The first day Titan was delighted to see so many puppies and had a great time barking at them, trying to attract their attention.
As the judge approached for the exam i told them this was his first show so they'd take it easier on him but i needn't have worried. He stood there happily, wagging his tail and not bothered at all about having his teeth checked or the judge going over him. He even gaited in the ring in front of the other babies, like he'd been doing it forever. He didnt win anything but he's hardly at the cute and fluffy stage anymore. He's a very solid boy but right now he's a whole lot of legs with a wavy stripe down his back as his adult coat comes in. He was such a little star the whole weekend. Not a problem in the world. Happy to be in the trolley or in the ring and happily handled by others. I think Titan and I will be having a whole lot of fun together.
Quinn took out Best of Breed all 3 days and 2 Junior in Groups. Mischa surprised me by winning 2 Neuter in Groups. I hope she can do it again as she was a little surprised at having to go into the ring again and was a little flat. i think she needs more practice winning.
I will hopefully have more photos later.
