Lowri - We had a good weekend at the dog shows. We had lots of friends all crated and groomed in the same area. My G'ma Janet was there! I was so happy to see her, I about wagged my tail off! I got to see my sister, Sally and my brother, Tommy. On Saturday, I was the Best girl Cardigan. Lots of my friends won prizes too. My niece, Story, was in the puppy match. She was very cute. She needs to learn to trot. It is an important skill for a show dog.
Today, I went Best of Breed. G'ma Janet commented that I didn't need MC as a handler, I could do it all on my own. TM pointed out the VERY important fact that MC is a REQUIREMENT because she is the treat dispenser! Our judge did not think I earned even a quarter of the group. TM said I had never looked better.
They had some Lure Coursing going on across the road. It looked like so much fun! I wanted to do it. I am sure I could catch the "hare"! TM wouldn't let me because I could be in a delicate condition. My brother, Tommy, went and tried it several times. He ran the whole course. The judge thought he did a really good job. I know he got at least two green awards. He was awesome!
My boyfriend went with us. I hesitate to say it, but we slept together on the same bed in the motel! Of course, TM was the chaperone. He wanted to chase the "hare" too. Neither of us got to. TM was being a party-pooper.
