Preach, sister. (I am cleverly disguised as a responsible adult)
I love to show - even if I have to dress up for it. I find it a fun thing. My dogs could give a hoot if we win or not. Yes purebred dog shows can be fun - and ARE fun. We need that happiness back. I laugh with my friends at shows how grumpy and standoffish the terrier people were when I took a puppy in at a fun match who was difficult. Seriously? Would it kill you to give advice? LOL
I don't even mind losing - of COURSE we like to win. Human nature, competitive spirit. I am not saying I half ass it.
So why show? I made a lot of friends (and I am sure some enemies) through conformation. As I grew older I also got more open-minded. To me form should follow function. I want my dogs to live forever and not be riddled with disease and problems. I am VERY lucky cardigans as a whole are that dog.
So next time you see me at a show stop on over!
