A show with points!

Breed counts just came out for Nino's second show, and there are some points up for grabs! His brother is debuting at this show (they've been going to run throughs together...it's a challenge), so if he wins the class either day, he will get his first point. He can also get 2 if he goes Best of Winners the first day (unlikely). Because there are no specials, BW automatically gets the breed. Day 1 is also part of the owner-handler series and there is a best puppy gun match. Looking forward to it!

Congrats! (If you think of it, IM me whenever you have a show near us. We'll be watching part of the agility trials in St. Peter over Labor Day weekend . . .)

It's two weekends from now, but I was very excited to hear his brother would be there and to see there were only class dogs (no specials makes BOB and BOBOH more achievable ) His brother is naughty and hasn't been in the atmosphere of an indoor show, so we should get at least 1 point out if the weekend

Loved seeing that you stepped into the ring with Panda. I was a mess at our first show (put him on the table during best of breed before realizing that wasn't how it worked and nonchalantly taking him off), so kudos to you guys on BW! Looking forward to seeing great things from your sweet girl!

What fun! Makes me wish we were back in the ring, I showed Sophie in puppy class as a 6 month old but knew I wouldn't continue and really wanted to cut the hair out of her eyes so we just did the one weekend. But it was tons of fun. She got her hair cut the next morning.

BIG CONGRATS to you and Panda, Karen! That's awesome! Good luck tomorrow too!

So cool you guys are close enough to see each other at the shows.

Around here, it would be VERY unusual not to have specials. Almost all the local breeders have at least one dog they are specializing, including Panda's breeder, who is working on Panda's sire's Gold GCH. He's still down in the mid-Atlantic states until the national specialty, but he's coming home after that. AND, the judges who are likely to be best for Panda, will also be best for him, so they are likely to be competing against each other often.

At this show, we weren't in OH, because she was supposed to be handled by the pro until he dropped out. If (when?) I PLAN to show her, I'll put her in OH. But in our area, it won't make much difference, because the two top Havanese OH's (also breeders) will still be competing against me, so I might as well be competing against the pros.

We usually have at least 3 specials, and that's in a bit of a dry patch for Havs (Nino and his littermates are the only class dogs out in the area, so majors will be difficult). It's also the weekend after the National, and we are over a 24 hour drive from Orlando. My guess is most of the specials will be hitting a couple shows there before making their way back up. I know many breeders who prefer to avoid the cost of campaigning unless it's a dog who is consistently placing in group.

We were lucky that, at our first show, every dog in the BOB competition was professionally handled but us. This time around, if I am guessing the entries correctly, all are owner-handled, so it's going to be an uphill battle. A few I know of opt out of NOHS because they don't like that they are marked owner-handled in the judges book, but I'm not that concerned about it

Just found out Nino's brother won't be showing. Onofrio didn't receive his mail entry in time. No clue who the other dog is because I thought ours were the only ones out in the area, but I'm bummed. His owner was very excited to show.
