Kearney - Boy oh boy, did I luck out!! Not only did I NOT have to have a bath, I got to stay home today. TM, MC and Lowri got up at 3:30 AM. They were on the road by 3:45.
Lowri - I slept most of the way to Greenville, SC. When I woke up, we were at the show. I was shocked to realize that I was the only dog TM and MC brought. I didn't have a security blanket at all! It was very loud and scary for a young pup. I stayed as close to TM as I could, but MC was leading me around. We got to show at 8:00 AM. My brother, Tommy, looked VERY handsome. We all thought he should win, but he didn't. He was Reserve Winners. It was a four-point show for dogs. Bitches (giggle) had a five-point show.
I won my class (I am not supposed to confess this, but I was the only puppy in my class). My sister, Sally, was soon up in Bred-by. There were four in her class. TM, MC and G'ma Janet were all shocked that Sally ended up in fourth place. When it was time for Winners, I went back in with MC. I am embarrassed to say that I wigged out. I didn't have Kearney nor TM to make me brave. MC spent a lot of time in the ring playing with me. I settled down and was able to move very nicely for her. I also put my ears up and showed lots of expression. That is hard when you are scared. In the end, the judge never even looked at me. He didn't realize that I was the prettiest and best. I guess you can't account for taste.
TM and MC said they still took the best dog home. We did take some pictures of Tommy, Sally, Mama and me. We will try and post some tomorrow.
The exciting part of the day was that my beautiful Mama, Scout, went Best of Breed! We are waiting patiently - NOT! - to hear how she did in the Group place.
