I am pretty sure the spinning was an initiation rite 😉 I have never heard of that before…but I can just imagine you saying 'well, ooookay' 🙂 Hang in there, it is always hardest with your first show dog...try to have fun!
That's exactly what I said but it was right after I said "Seriously, you want me to do what?" 😃 The judge was a long-time basenji breeder so I figured she knew what she was talking about.
I guess the moral of this story is that you will meet some jerky judges while you do this, and you may feel embarrassment and shame in their rings…but you will live through it, and be able to laugh later. The behavior of people who wish to shame you says more about them, than it does about you 🙂 my inspirational message of the day.
Thanks, I like that inspirational message. It's a good mantra for when I get a jerky judge. 🙂
