…we decided rather rapidly to enter the Reliant Park World Series Dog Show, here in town, so this weekend we gave it a go.
I was suppose to show him, but my silly nerves took over and he of course felt every bit of it through his lead, so a friend (whom has been doing this since she was 9 yrs old) took over and handled him beautifully.
He was the only one entered in his class, so of course no competition there, but for the experience, You couldn't ask for a better environment.
Here he is waiting to go into the ring
Stacy is adjusting his tail..;)
Gaiting pretty good…as long as he didn't see me, so I had to hide behind a rather large human..lol.
freestacking, not so good, but at least she has his attention, as supposed to him looking for me..
Table time..not really a favorite, but he did great.
Judge is looking him over, Pippin was a little leary, the judge had a big cast on his left arm…so Stacy had to show his bite, which was good for his first time, I think..
Getting a pettin'..
His third time in the ring and he is getting a little tired..
He also took home Best of Breed Puppy…so two ribbons came home with us...
and finally my favorite pic..actually taken the next day..sadly we match each other perfectly,...wrinkles in our forheads and around our eyes...hehe
We spent three days down there even though we only showed one day, the more noice and smell experience the better. We had a ball, the training will continue and with time I hope my nerves will calm down..;)
