Vallejo results!

Ahhh a nice tiring 3 day long weekend of shows. It was nice to have one of those show weekends where you felt jazzed about the future, you know? Also, the weekend started out sort of iffy with a lady blowing at us because she thought the entire power outlets belonged to her and wanted no part of sharing and proceeded to unplug my extension cords. Alas, I found another place to groom out dogs and let things pass. To put good karma out there, I let some borzoi people borrow thinning shears and equipment and put good dog show vibes out into the world. Can't all people be positive and giving? ;)

Now onto the results..

Friday- Presston RWD, Penny RWB
Saturday- Presston RWD, Penny RWB (can I just remind everyone how close it was on both decisions and how we had to reaaally work it in the ring. So so close!)
Sunday- Presston, RWD, Penny WB, BOW for a 4 point major! Yipeeee!

Great great weekend all around. I'm so proud of my border kids. Presston is really out there asking for the points now, so I'm sure it's just a matter of time. And Penny, my sweet girl! Her first major. I'm very excited. She is so fun to show. The compliments on her are incredible. And exhibitors of other breeds always comment on her rich gold coloring.

Lots of nice dogs out there showing. It's such an enjoyable experience just to be out there enjoying the gorgeous weather with my dogs!

Julie, my GSP friend, took a few pictures of Penny for me to share. At 11 months she's starting to mature and look great. I just love her look. Thanks again Julie!

Show news & some shots!

I took a few shots of Penny running around in the morning sun last weekend. She is starting to fill out in the head and look mature. It's so hard to believe that next month she will be turning a year old! Time flies by so fast these days. She has a bunch of coat and I love her britches/tail. So long and gorgeous in gold! Penny will be starting pre-agility classes at the WAG (Western Agility Group) facility in Elk Grove, CA at the end of this month. The classes will go over basic obedience, send aways, recalls, introduction to some of the equipment, handling, etc. It's going to be very exciting for us as Penny is such an intelligent serious dog and I just know she will excel in agility.

Also for some updated show news, I took both Presston and Penny to the San Jose show a couple weekends ago. Presston got WD for 1 point and Penny got WB/BOW/BOS for 1 point. Great job guys! We only showed Sunday as it was a Sunday/Monday show and not much reason to show Monday. More shows coming in the following weeks!
