Yesterday we left at 5;30 am for a 4-H fun match,We took Daphney and little Inga Bear(she just turned 3 months)


Daphney went because a little girl wanted to use her in Obed.


They worked together for about 20 min and then in the ring they went.It wasn't to pretty(as they did not get alot of time to work together),but they were tie with another girl and had a run off and they took second place in there age class(not sure how old she is).I had her work her on and off the rest of the day and she wants to use her in Jr obed at the fair.They will be training now together untill the fair in August.


Stephanie showed Inga in conf(3to 6 month old class) she took Best of Breed(puppy) and a Working Group 1 in her first show.


I showed Daphney in Conformation also and she also took Best of Breed(adult) and a Group 1.


It was a very fun and long day.I think we got back home a little after 5:00.

No I was running around all day talking to dog people I havn't seen in a while.The show was in Manitowoc and I use to belong to their club before I moved.And we didn't take the camera.


I'll try to remember to take the camera next weekend,just for you guys.

Thats really cool-the whole thing with Daphney and the little girl. I bet it was a lot of fun to watch. It would be great to see some pics as I've never seen anything like that before. Sounds like everybody had a good time.

I don't get nervous any more.People are going to be mad no matter what you pick.I pick the best dog on that day.I don't care if I know the person or not.


Some Judges pick people and not dogs.So I tell everyone I don't .I can sleep at night knowing I did the best job,not that I picked some crappy dog just because the person showing is my friend.


Besides I've been showing for 15 years so I know alot of people and their dogs.

I like a dog that looks like it's breed and looks like it could do the job it was bred for.I like movement also.


Straight front ,rear,good top line,nice head, good teeth,right eye color,ear set,coat.There is so much more then just looking at the dogs.

It is I don't like Judging to much.Once or twice a year is good for me.This year I think I will have Judged only 6 times.Thats alot for me.I would much rather be showing and training.
