Rio and My Dad

Last weekend my dad went with me up to Ferndale to help me show my girls. He has no real dog show experience except the two times my mom needed him to go in the ring for Winners because she had two in at the same time. He wasn't terribly comfortable in the ring and though he and Rio were working pretty well outside the ring, they were not the best team in the ring. Even so, he put 1 point on my girl going WB/BOS from Open. The photographer just got the picture up on their website.

Fantastic!!! And nice pic. I bet he was happy!:D

Ha! He was much happier on Sunday when he took Reserve and got to escape the ring. He made a big deal of what a good girl Rio was because they could both go relax. It was really cute.

Lovely…. Lisa... great shot...

So nice of you to share this with us…kudos on the wins.

Oh, wait, is reserve considered a win??

I will answer that….Nope....ggggg... But the first day certainly was with WB/BOS!!!!!

Saturday's WB/BOS was the win though with the big praise from my dad for the Reserve on Sunday you would have thought it was the win.

Sophie was WB/BOS on Sunday but we were not able to get a photograph because the photographer had a ring conflict.

Very nice pictures and your dad looks mighty proud, Congrats.

pretty girl, course dad looks less than thrilled

Very nice pic, congrats. I'm LOLing at the judge, even in other pics he has that silly grin. Big congrats to your dad though, even if they weren't working well they did something right 😃

What a lovely picture! Congrats on the win!

That's great…he doesn't seem thrilled, but I'm sure he's smiling...on the inside! Great job, nonetheless!! Beautiful pictures and congrats to all!

It's great you have your Dad to do things like this when needed - he looks like he was taking it in stride, and maybe a little proud even if he didn't want to show it.

Very nice indeed. My parents aren't dog lovers, so I doubt my Dad would ever even consider doing something like that - he calls my house Holly's zoo. 🙂 Congratulations on your (and his) win!

Thank you everyone. It is one of the better pics of Rio that I have. She isn't a big fan of the show ring either. I am very lucky to have family that is so supportive of my hobbies.
