We are very happy with our show season this year. It was a lot of work showing 5-6 dogs each show but we did it. I learned that I need to spend a little more time with training to make sure that my dogs give a more consistent performance whenever we enter the ring. But, I am very happy with what we accomplished.
Zuko got 2 Winner's Dog, Best of Opposite and multiple 1st place open class placements. We are still a ways from his championship title but we are working on it.
Rosie had a really rough summer - she had an infection on her face, lost a lot of weight and had a horrible appetite which required hand feeding at times but by this fall she bounced back with a vengeance. She got over her shyness in the ring and got her first Winner's Bitch, Best of Opposite Sex and rocked it like a Rockstar in the ring.
Our biggest surprise has been Finn and how much he loves the show ring. He is a superstar. He got his first Reserve Winner's Dog in Boise at our last dog show as a 9 month old puppy. We have a ways to go an he is still growing but I am thrilled with this boy! He makes me smile every day.
