Nino's First Show!

What a day! The entire crew is absolutely exhausted right now, but boy did we have a blast. While it rained a lot in the morning, there was never lightning and it was completely dry by the time we got there (at the beginning of groups). Nino was a very good boy, and he got to meet the Hav that convinced us to get another back in January.

Our match didn't start until 6 pm, so the boys (Nino and his brother) had to practice their patience. Nino ended up winning his breed and got a Toy Group 1. There were 5 groups represent in Best in Match, and those watching said it seemed to be between Nino and the Black Cocker that ended up winning (the judge spent a lot of time looking between the two and said some very kind things about Nino). Even though Reserve Best in Match isn't a thing, we like to say Nino won that too

Poor little guy was awake for maybe 30 minutes in the 3 hours we have been home (hence the picture below being the only one we could snap with the winnings...will take more tomorrow). We will probably go back tomorrow for his half-sister, but he's staying at home. I am unbelievably proud of the way he performed today (and a little proud of myself too...I was the only newbie in the ring). I don't think he will ever cease to amaze me. Videos to come tomorrow!

A huge congratulations!!!! Even though it's "only a match" most of the puppy dogs there are show prospects getting ready for their official show ring debuts. Winning group and entering the best in match ring had to be a thrill.

Good job Sophie and Nino. I knew that exclamation mark in the thread title were an indication of good news for you two.

Awesome, Nino, and awesome for you too! And I suspect you will always treasure that cute photo of the sacked out puppy with his first ribbons, even when he has Best of Breed show photos hanging on the wall!

Hehe, after the photo was snapped, I said it would probably be my favorite of his show photos. He thoroughly enjoyed himself (thank goodness...wouldn't do it otherwise), and we have just a few weeks before we do it all "for real"
