AJ - don't worry at all. I totally read that the right way/how you meant it. 🙂 The friendliness of Costa Ricans is incredible. If I asked them if they knew a Costa Rican I know I would not be surprised if they did know them! They are such a social group of people - sitting on the curb near the church and just watching folks and waving to them. At the time I was working full time in a very stressful job, and I just envied their simplicity.
I think in AKC they have to be 7 yrs old. In CKC they have a pee wee class where it's even younger, 4 yrs. And in UKC they can be 2! lol And I think in the youngest ones they can have an "assistant" handler. 🙂 I know I've seen Laurie Soutar going around the ring with her granddaughter in UKC. She has Lakilanni Greyhounds and are regulars at the lure trials.
PS, that's for juniors. I think for the breed ring there is no age stipulation as long as they are in control of the dog. Kathy?
That guy is my hero! We met a man a few years ago with a 3-legged lab, he had dived in and fought a gator to save his dog. The dog lost a front leg (Gators have really nasty mouths) but was happy and healthy…and alive!
that is really sad.. especially how some didnt have paws… how could you not notice that.. i guess with 800 dogs.. you overlook them ? idk..
i was watching animal cops or something liek that on animal planet the other night and a woman had like 90+ dogs and pups in her house.. they told her she could keep like 2 or 3 whatever the law was.. and she hid a bunch behind dryers and stuff, but they still found them.. that was 90 and a HOUSE.. and that was crazy.. i cant even begin to imagine what that trailer looked.. and SMELLED.. like.. 😞
