End of the drought?

CC and I have been having the "drought".  The looong stretch of NQ runs in agility.  It was always one thing or another.

We did however get our first Time2Beat Q!!!

Ryka is also back in the saddle - 2 weeks is her next trial.

Also, wishing all the entries at the CWCCA National best of luck!  Wish I was there!

Edison dog shows

Thursday night and Saturday I showed Lzzy in the "March Madness" cluster in Edison.  Thursday night was the Herding Group Association show and New Brunswick Kennel Club show.  We came up empty handed every time but it was good ring experience for her.  She is not a fan of the venue for some reason and she was out of coat.  

I showed Priscilla in Veterans Sweepstakes Saturday and she got Best Opposite in Sweeps!  

I Love my Priscilla head!  

Plus I saw my friend Randie who took awesome pics of Lzzy!

It is only a dog show aka "Let it Go"



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!
