Kerry said Bug showed really well and that is all you can ask for.
This show is at a campground that has a lake. Bug has been hanging out lakeside in stunning weather. I wish I could join him - without the stress of the dog show of course. Bug is not stressed out at all - he knows his job and he has a new lady-love to distract him.

Kerry shows Dobermans and there is a fawn bitch that Buggie is in L-O-V-E with ... that wants NOTHING to do with him. Ha! Unrequited love is tough but at least it is entertaining for the humans.
Meanwhile back in Massachusetts I have a new black shadow named Ike. My little Schnauzer who typically does his own thing and likes his own space was hot on my heels last night. It is sweet to know he loves and misses his bro so much. John is convinced he is worried about the Bug, wondering where he went.
To occupy the Schnauzer's mind I worked on shaping him to scratch a board covered with sand-paper. It was very successful. Ike looked very cat-like; I will have to video tape it. I started working on this at the suggestion of my agility trainer as a different way to do Bug's nails that would also be a fun shaping exercise. When Bug comes home from Maine we will work on it some more.
Tomorrow is a new day with a new judge. Paws are crossed for Bug.
