    Thanks so much, Hillary! It was so great to meet you outside of the group ring that evening...just wish I had met your Drifter, too! You were such a pro out there with your boy all weekend, too- you both looked fantastic and make a great team!

    Anyhow, thank you for sharing the excitement of our good news...all of you!!! ;D

    LOL- anyone who has frequented this forum knows that Monty's tail (trying to get it wagging) has been the bane of my existence since he was a puppy...he is just soooo serious when it comes to showing! He just focuses in on my and usually stands completely still (unless he's shuffling his feet around, which also drives me crazy! LOL).

    Most here will tell you that in early photos of him as a puppy, they kept telling me to get his tail wagging. I tried to goof around with him, clicker-train for this, tried commands and treats, tried rough-housing with him in the ring, etc. etc. etc. Nothing really worked all that great. I think the problem I had, since Monty was my first show-dog to try to "train" was trying for perfection to early on, as well as trying too much hand-stacking for the all-breed ring rather than just letting him be a puppy. I have heard from a few of the big name breeders that they don't put a hand on them (hand-stacking) until they're well over a year old...most dogs hate this, it seems, and that tail just hangs down. Believe me, I won't ever make this mistake again...thankfully Monty is pretty darned forgiving! LOL

    You saw a complete breakthrough on Monday...I finally found a way to get him wagging and pretty darned animated in the ring (ie- "got his groove goin' on!")! It took me over a year to find the secret for him and *that* was even more exciting for me than the placement!

    Huge Congrats! He is such a pretty boy! I was lucky enough to visit the other forum and see the Breaking News pretty early on. That was so awesome that it was posted so quickly. I am sure you are very proud. Great Job to both of you!

    That is awesome and what a nice place to earn a major. Always good to get that second major out of the way so you can not worry about majors breaking!

    I finished one of my males 2 weekends ago with a 4 pointer at a supported entry! I'm still forgetting he is finished -- keep looking at show premiums and strategizing.....habit.......although he will be shown in BOB a bit for fun.
