A Point!!

One should probably NOT be so excited about a point. However, Bug needs three single points and I have failed miserably at getting them to date.

Change of plans.


This weekend I hired my handling class instructor to handle Bug at the Pioneer Valley Kennel Club show in Greenfield, MA (and the Cheshire Kennel Club show in Keene, NH tomorrow).

I don't know how tomorrow will go, but today was a success!


Although I must say, my nerves were just as bad with Kerry showing Bug as they are when I show him! Kerry said, "Just don't faint."

Bug was a bit weird on the table for Kerry. I think she tried to move his right foreleg a bit too quickly and he actually laid down on the table. She got him up quickly and stacked him. I thought his front looked GREAT - at least from my angle. Sometimes I guess things work out.

Bug looked VERY nice moving for her although his ears did go down when they first entered the ring together. I think this is due to the stress I have exhibited going into the ring. Hopefully this will change as he shows with people who enjoy it and aren't stressed about it.

At the moment I have a corgi who is SOUND asleep. Apparently showing is exhausting!


2 more points to go. Cross your paws for us. Tomorrow might be a wash if the other dog doesn't show.

Are there bitches entered? Perhaps Bug could pick up a cross-over point (or 2). Good luck!
