We're Back

Nino will be showing for the first time in 3 months next Saturday. I was going to wait until our January shows and group specialty, but decided to show him to a judge who has put him up (1st, Winners, BOS, BOBOH, and Best Puppy) again. Just 1 day, but there is a major available. Fingers crossed. I look forward to being back in the ring.

Yay, Nino! Good luck!!! I have to figure out when to put Panda back too. We're just working so hard on both obedience and agility at the moment (plus Kodi's trials) that I've felt like there hasn't been time. Then kennel cough just SWEPT through this area like the plague this fall, making me a little nervous about taking either of them to our big Thanksgiving Cluster. Won't be until well after the first of the year for us, I think.

We had a big blizzard here overnight, and the plows were not out early enough for us to feel safe driving 1.5 hours to the show, so we had a no-go today. First time there will be an A next to his name. The major had already broken, so there was no guilt in not going.

We will be showing at a 3 day cluster January 6-8. A group specialty day 1, then 2 all breed shows. It is always a very fun show to go to, and there should be majors all 3 days. It will be his first time showing outside of the puppy classes. He starts Beginners agility the day after, poor kid. He's going to be completely pooped.

Tomorrow, we are back in the show ring after 4 months away. Poor Nino has a 3-day cluster immediately followed by his first class of post-foundations agility on Monday. I'm going to have one sleepy pup on my hands.

His other two breeders (co-owners of Nino's dam) will be here from the Chicago suburbs, seeing him for the first time since 2 weeks old. It will be my first time meeting them. I look forward to it

First in our class, that was it today. Nothing in the winner's ring. I try to refrain from bemoaning judges, but I could not for the life of my tell what this judge liked. She put up dogs with tons of coat and dogs with scraggly coats. Big dogs, littler dogs, long dogs...the only consistency was that, if a handler could be put up, they were. I'm okay with handlers being put up (it's all part of the game), but not when there is no consistency in the judges choices. Nino got to meet Uncle Pancake today. Both perfectly well-behaved dogs, but they were pulling HARD to get to see each other. Never met before...it's almost like they knew they were family

On to bigger and better things tomorrow!

Fingers crossed today goes better. The whole show politics has to be frustrating. I really believe the pups remember their families. How nice to be able to get them together again!
