I earned my first two show points on the day I turned eight months old! Mom says this showing thing is very frustrating. She let my breeder take me in the ring, and Mom took one of my brothers. My breeder says I should be winning, and I guess she is right because I did! I beat my two brothers when I had a decent handler!
This show was similar to Des Moines the week before in regards to competitors. The only difference is I had two brothers to compete against. Meet Seb, Sebastian. He lives in Indiana and came up to Purina Farms for the dog show. The two of us look a lot alike in our markings. He has a heavier frame like my brother Grunge. My frame is more like my sister Vara.
Getting photos is hard because Mom is in the ring with me so we rely on others. The week before we had our helper along to take photos. This shot is from Friday. Mom and I are going around the ring together. Most of the show photos have my mom in them since we are really together when we show.
Saturday, we were waiting for the GBGV group to go into the ring and we had someone take this photo of us. Mom prefers to dress so she matches my fur colors when she can.
After earning another second place, we left the ring and I tried to help Mom feel better. She wants to do better for me, but we need more practice.
In the end, all is good because I got my two show points and finally a blue ribbon! Overall, it was a good weekend for everyone. Each of my brothers, Grunge, and Seb, each got two points as well. My sister Vara somehow managed to get four points! It figures, because girls and quiet and sneaky, just like my sisters at home.
A special thanks to my favorite fun sister, Olivia. She came along with us and spent most of her weekend waiting for me to do my thing. We had lots of fun in our hotel room wrestling and stuff and I am so happy she was there. Now we have to find another show to attend, but it isn’t easy since it is hard to find one with enough of our breed to make it worthwhile to go.
