We had an outdoor show today and it was great fun! Tillo did.. ok.. He was second in youth class with an excellent. He got a nice judge report, but made me work for it.. He was whining and sat on the table while being judged.. sigh.. he even 'growled' a bit when the judge was touching his male parts.. I just smiled and told him how good he was with an extra loud voice and had my hand so he couldn't move his head.. Don't think the judge noticed anything..
So.. why was today fun..? Haha.. just because the weather was GREAT! There were 10 basenji's, which is A LOT! I made lots of pics (almost 700..) of a lot of different breeds.. I met some great people! Even the coordinator of the lure coursing training I had emailed before.. I made some pics of his dogs and he told me about lure coursing etc. I asked some questions and told him I was going to train with my B.. He said: who are you then.. I told my name.. he said: well, nice too meet you then, I spoke to you via the mail!! What a coincidence! Now I'm even more looking forward to the training!
Also: Tillo and the other male in his class (who became BOB, yeay! I'll add some pics of course, he looks really nice :)) are for some reason best friends and just love eachother.. so sweet to see them play together..
Yes.. today was fun..
Before I forget, Tillo's judge report:
16 months. Very nice breed image. Noble male head, good in proportion with a nice ear, eye and a good bite. Slender neck. Back has to become a little tighter. Tail is a bit open. Very nice coat. Very good angulations on both ends. Fluent and free movement, that's a bit loose in front. Very nice wrinkles.
