New Hope ASC had a show in town last weekend and despite family obligations on Sunday, I decided to pack a few dogs for a Pre-Nationals show and tell on Saturday. The dogs weren't as stripped out as I would normally have them as I'm trying to keep as much hair on them as possible until I get to Missouri. It'll work... maybe :)
Gamble's been looking pretty good lately, so I neutered him a few weeks ago and decided to hit the Altered Champion Trail. He already has a 5 point Intact major but as I never planned to breed him and with about 50 intact boys at my house (HUGE exaggeration but it feels that way at times) I thought I'd go ahead and get this going. Gamble ended up winning Winners Dog for something like 2 points? Maybe 3? I suck at looking these things up while at a show.
Georgie as always was more than willing to come to the show and play and even though she tried her hardest to heel instead of gait (the point in showing her was this) we had this sorted out quickly and she did well. Here's a pic of her smiling (as she normally does). She does have a neck under all that fluff, I swear :) We did reward her second try in Winners with a round of heeling right outside the ring. She was instantly very happy with that!
Note to self: Love this outfit... but don't let Trip ruin the shirt so you can't wear it again. Stupid thing ripped on his nail... grr.
