We had our first show with the 4 pups we wanted to try in the ring. We went to a specialty and these little peanuts were the youngest and smallest, so we didn't fare too well next to some of the heavy-hitters there.
Jack did the best by getting pulled in his 2 puppy classes for a second look and ended up 5th in a class of 9 pups. At least the judge didn't leave him dead last as that's where our random number put us.

Here are some photos of him in the ring, as well as some of him and his 2 sisters (Juniper and Sage).
(ignore the fat lady)! :'(
These are of Jack, Juniper and Sage....
Glad you had a good outing! I love showing pups and who cares about placements at their age.
You had 4 show prospects in one litter? Lucky YOU!
I don't know if they ARE show propects, we had one definate "KEEPER"...Jackson. The other boy we kept will be shown a few times just because we can. Sage was the best girl and Juniper the second best. The rest of the pups were definate pet quality, no questions. But I had 2 friends who wanted nice dogs to try showing, so they have my girls on co-owns. No huge expectations...except to have alot of fun.
The pics won't come up for me Glad you had fun though!!!
I put the direct link to the photos in the original message. :ugly:
There they are!
Jack looks ok in size in that line up and it looks like he moves really nicely! I can't believe how dark Juniper is...very pretty
Everyone loves that DARK color. Ideally, I need to find a boy that produces that dark color consistently with MORE coat and breed him to Juni in 2 years!
They're adorable! I love the dark color of Juni too
