    DefaultWe showed in our first "big boy class" today...

    and Monty won his class (Open Yellow), in spite of being 16 months old. Guess everyone was right...He really does need to move up in the all-breed shows because of his maturity. We'll see how he does tomorrow. Here are some photos from ringside that my SU took...

    Monty moving during his Open Yellow class...not bad for someone who isn't typically "into" photography!





    I was telling a friend a bit earlier on our way home that I felt a little bit like I was showing a GSD...Monty would start moving out and just start moving right along out in front of me. You can see it a little bit in the photos above, though we were just approaching the first corner.

    After giving another, slightly lighter-boned yellow boy (from the 12-18 class, which Monty would have otherwise been in) WD, she skipped right by us and went with the 6-9 puppy (a little black guy bred by our friend and owned by our other friend, so actually still quite exciting for us!!! ). It was interesting, though- the judge moved the other boy up right behind Monty and sat there comparing and comparing, then moved them together, then compared some more, then moved the entire class together.

    Oh well...tomorrow is another day, another judge (and I think he likes blacks, so we'll see how it goes)! LOL

    Not much...but he's maturing by the minute, I swear, and seems to be getting a lot more toned, in spite of his status as "housedog."
    Thanks, Tatyana!

    Great job you two! We can't wait to meet you guys at the Big P! Look for Ruby, she'll be the scrawny yeller girl with no coat in open yellow! Even though I gave her jacket a pep talk about holding on until May, it's taken on a life of its own and an "Everything must go" attitude. Crikey.
