Hehe yesterday was a marathon 12 hour day. Today? Not so much. We were there and back within 3.5 hours. We were given reserve to a dog with a thin coat and a level topline...who was on a professional handler. Yesterday's judge was far and away the best we have had...today's wasn't great. Not to discredit the dog's win; Nino showed the fact that he isn't even 8 months old today and decided he wanted to gallop instead of gait.

After yesterday's unbelievable success, I didn't expect much. Nino's a bit of a wildcard, and after a killer day yesterday, a bit of naughtiness was in the cards C'est la vie...we got a different ribbon color out of it

Sophie, Mario, and Nino.

Here's our sweet guy with his spoils from this weekend. The two ribbons on the left are from today; everything else was yesterday (though there was no best puppy or owner-handled competition today).

Yayyy, Nino! It must be incredibly rewarding to work so hard and then have such success. Layla and I have our first show this coming weekend (Rally not Conformation) and I'm a nervous wreck. Hope we hav even a fraction of your success! Congrats!

Oh, well! We had the same thing happen on our last show weekend. Sat.'s judge loved her, and put her up over the exact same dogs that beat her with Sun.'s judge. And in her case, she actually showed better on Sun. than she had on Sat. Judges have their preferences!

Success is definitely a reassurance. Our first show, we were the only dog, so Best of Opposite was a given. This time, we were put up over multiple dogs in different competitions, so I can finally think "Hey...we might just be good at this".

I have no doubt you guys will do amazing this weekend. I was told to, for the first show especially, go into it with no expectations at all. That way there is no disappointment if something is a bit off. Keep us updated! Go Layla

Sophie, Mario, and Nino.
