    DefaultMonty was a *major* pain today...(and a wee brag)- edited to include photo

    He tried to strangle the handler I had take him in the ring this weekend so that I could watch him from the sidelines (my first time hiring a pro) ...when he was being put in his ex-pen this morning, he grabbed poor Carlos by the tie and proceeded to do the famous "Monty Dance." Anyone who has seen Monty grab pant legs or skirts in his teeth knows the routine.

    Okay, the brag...

    Monty took WD for his first major today at the Santa Barbara Kennel Club show under a golden breeder, Mrs. Janice M. Provenzano!!! Whoooo-hoooooo!!!! I was blown away- he will be 2 years old at the end of October.
    Unfortunately, the bitch major didn't hold, but she gave the Winners Bitch BOW so she got a major, too! It is *very* cool when judges do that, I think!

    Anyhow, I screamed and then was calm and didn't know quite what to do...until everyone started swarming around to give me congratulatory hugs...then I started to cry. I hate it when that happens! LOL I hope the win photo comes out!

    And to think that I *really* wanted to see what Monty looked like when handled by someone who can really make him look and move his best! It is so difficult to see your dog (and what you need to work on and whatnot) from the end of the lead. The judge was so complimentary of him- I heard over and over how nice she was to show under.

    So, here is the photo...not the best angle to show off his front (which is one of his strong points), or his rear for that matter, but still a VERY memorable moment!

    Congratulations! Somehow it doesn't surprise me one bit. I think your boy is AWESOME! Don't want to jinx you, but I expect a Ch at the beginning of his name sooner than later. Congrats again. ;D ;D ;D
