Today was a big "womp womp" for us. It's the first time Nino didn't win his class. It definitely wasn't our day. We started the morning late, then when we got to the show, I realized I had left the cash I withdrew at home. It was 30 minutes to ring time (we like to get there an hour ahead to get him calm), and the people taking money for parking wouldn't budge. I even offered them my driver's license until my dad was able to pay for me. Nope, I had to take about 10 minutes to get cash at an ATM. Poor Nino ended up pooping in his crate on the way to the ring and stepped in it, so he went in with one back paw soaking wet.
He did so well in the ring I'm actually surprised he didn't take the class over his brother, who was very naughty. Our breeder thinks it was because his tail still needs to tighten up a bit. The judge's selections were all a bit odd, which is to be expected in a breed with so much variety, I guess. Oh well, que sera sera. That's a dog show for ya. Looking forward to tomorrow!
