My own little brag- "little balding blonde" boy, Monty, who turned 18 months old this past week (his first time in the big boy classes at a specialty show) made the cut on day 1 (4/27) in Open Yellow under Mrs. Barbara Gilchrist (Blackthorn Labs) and then WON(!!!) his Open Yellow class yesterday (4/28) under Mr. David Hepper (Mardas Labs- UK)- he continued to show in the hot sunshine for me in the WD class. He was one of only about 3-4 dogs left to bake in the sunshine while the rest of the class got to stand in the shade, but he was a trooper through it all and continued to wag his tail for me! To say I was pleased was an understatement, especially with such beautiful yellow boys...and most much older and more mature than 18 months.
I also had the opportunity to handle a friend's Open Black girl to win her class and then take RWB, and another wonderful friend's beautiful veteran girl to 2 consecutive "Best Veteran Bitch in Sweepstakes" wins! She is gorgeous, and was a lot of fun to have around this weekend.
All in all, a TON of fun, and I'm learning so much about handling dogs- another good friend had me take her 3 year-old CH. boy into the breed ring at the supported entry shows today and he showed like a dream! What fun!
