Well, he had a LOT of fun and he was wonderful at the fun match today. He was the best puppy in his class, behaved the best and acted the best on lead. He was not the most beautiful though... in fact he was the ugly boy. We got a 4th place in 3 - 6 month puppy dogs, and a 3rd place in 3 - 6 month sweeps. But he really did well as far as being there and being in the ring. It was our one and only foray into the conformation ring... now we buckle down and start focusing on obedience and agility...
Remy with is 4th place ribbon... his first ribbon ever...

In the ring... I was pretending I knew how to show conformation...I've never done it.

Way to go, Remi!!!
What fun!! ;D
PS. I don't think he's ugly at all!
On showing: I will never forgive (just kidding) Uplandlabs for having me show one of her labs when I'd never set foot in the ring, either! Well, I was grateful for the shotgun experience, I guess, but I certainly did not do well by her lab! The judge let me know that without any question or doubt about it. *hangs head in shame*
It was humiliating, not for me, but I felt badly for Ups and her dog.
You can train for this, Linda, and you will do well.

Monnie, I only took Remington. It was his day
Nance, I have no inclination to show in the breed ring. It's just not my thing. I find it rather stupid and boring (sorry, folks, but I really do). I prefer obedience and agility... where my dog actually has to have skills and competes against the clock and the perfect score, instead of on some judge's opinion and whim
This was our one and only time in the breed ring. I took him for the socialization as I've not been able to do much with him due to mom's health. But he did really well at the show, he is fearless and pretty laid back too.
Great Job Linda. Can't wait to see his turn with Agility!!
What a sweet little boy ........... love his expression in the second photo!!
