Had a great weekend with the dogs. Saturday was tracking training and Teddy was excellent she did an 800 meter track, found two lost articles and found the track layer. We have a trial next weekend so hopefully all will go well!
Yesterday was the Lab speciality. Alice, handled by a friend, won the baby bitch class and I was delighted when Matilda came third. Alice was a bit naughty but was great on the move.* Matilda* stood beautifully, she stands naturally 4 square so is very easy to show, and also moved well. Alice was beaten by the baby puppy dog so was best opposite baby in show.
Teddy won the special class for dogs with a retrieving/obedience/tracking pass. There were only 2 in the class but I was happy with the way Teddy showed as she is not a terribly keen show dog! She did not place in her Austrailan bred class, she moved well at the start of the class but was kind of over it when she was moved another 2 times. I was glad when we were not asked to move again as I did not think Teddy had another lap of the ring left in her ;D I knew I was pushing my luck by entering her in 2 classes.
I am very proud of my babies and their mum! Here is a photo of them with their ribbons. I had to tie up the baby monsters as there was no way they were sitting still for a photo!
Sounds like a good one! Gosh I love those girls.
Congratulations! I know what you mean about praying that the dogs don't have to go around again. Your Teddy and my Tess must be related . Tess loves to show but she gets slower and slower as the class goes on. No one would ever guess that she is a working retriever - she more closely resembles a retired couch potato.
Congratulations. Teddy, showing is fun. You're not going to let those babies show you up are you? LOL
