Another Fun Dog Show Weekend!
No pictures yet, but we did have several taken at the shows in Pomona over Halloween weekend. Mom, Amy, and I took Meg, RJ, Mr. Darcy, Decker and Oliver to the shows at the Fairplex. On Saturday, Amy and Oliver attempted Rally Excellent for the first time, and were successful, earning a leg toward Oliver's RE title. He earned his RA title the weekend before! Oliver was also entered in Novice Obedience, but didn't get a Q in that class on Saturday. I showed RJ, Meg and Decker. RJ was Winners Dog, and then Best of Winners for a three point major for his first points. Meg won her class and Decker was third of four. Later in the day Mr. Darcy showed, and was Best Opposite. His cousin, Robert, recently arrived from England, was Winners Dog! We all spent the night and started in again on Sunday, with Meg taking the honors by going Winners Bitch for a three point major! She now has five points. Mr. Darcy was Best of Breed (about 30 Pembrokes shown) and then thrilled us by placing fourth in the Herding group, shown by Barb Hughes, since I developed a nosebleed just before the group judging. (air just too darn dry this past week) Oliver was also triumphant, earning a leg towards his Novice obedience title (he now has two and needs one more to title). I'm so proud of both Oliver and Amy. I'll post pictures when they arrive.
