I’m well-known as a bad blogger during dog show season. My mind is occupied with ring training, travel plans, and ribbons. This year has been a nice quiet year (mostly by choice). We’ve scaled back quite a bit, and I’ve only accepted a very few dogs for training or handling. We hit two shows in April, and two in May, but are only planning on one for each remaining month. It’s just been too long away from home when I have a wee girlie (who’s now 22 months old) waiting for my return.
In a couple of weeks we head off to Nanaimo. We’ll be flying to this show, which will be a new experience for me. Normally my assistant, Jewles, and I drive everywhere. This one is a 20 hour drive, and I’m only taking two client dogs – so it’s looking like flying will be the most cost effective way to get there and back. Wish us luck. 🙂
Here are some candids of Sunny (Hileigh’s Blazing Sunshine) and I in the ring at a few different shows, and one of him relaxing in one of our many hotel rooms with Jewles.
Sunny is now sitting on eight points, and has already earned his first major – all as a Junior Puppy. Also accompanying us to this next show will be Claire, a lovely black and tan girl who has earned four points being owner handled. Wish us all luck as we head off to B.C. in June.
