MONDAY

Today Logan got Owner-Handler Group 3 for I think 20 more points (15 for group 3, 5 for BOV), giving us 45 points total and placing us at #2 NOHS Smooth Collie in the nation, and the #1 NOHS Smooth Collie Dog (#1 bitch has 70 points). The judge in breed and NOHS group were the same, and she really didn't like Logan that much :/ The sheltie from the group pictures (group 3 Sunday) before beat us, as did a corgi that was absent yesterday.

I got to hold shelties for some people when they were in the ring, and I fell in love with their little boy <3

I have really grown to love grooming. Logan hates it and wants the world to know how much he hates it in the bath. I told him everyone knows he's so abused, but nobody cares

Somebody save me. I AM SO ABUSED! (I impressed a couple people with his tape. It's paper medical tape from the Dollar Tree and it comes off instantly and leaves no residue, but stays put for a couple weeks at a time. It's nice because I can just pull it out right before our ring time).




He looks like such a derp in this picture lol


Our ribbon haul for the weekend, minus one orange coursing rosette they need to mail to use because they ran out. I also won a Purina travel mug, and to get it I had to fill out this card that asked what food a feed. I found immense pleasure in writing down a NOT PURINA food I use the mug to mix chalk and corn starch (interestingly, I used no chalk on Friday and Saturday and did use chalk on his legs Sunday and Monday, and he did his best in the breed ring on Saturday with no chalk. That may be just a coincidence, but still!)


And finally, packed up and ready to go. And he was FINALLY tired!


This is the dog that beat Logan all weekend. He's a very nice dog, but it irritated me that he's chubby, when the standard specifically states fat dogs should be penalized. In this photo he's thin compared to how he looked today. To be honest I tried to bulk Logan up a bit, but he either doesn't eat more than he needs, or he eats everything and then has diarrhea, and ends up staying the same weight. Even if I could have fattened him up some, he can't stay in that condition all the time. It's not healthy for the activity and work he does.


DONE!

Ahhh so many great pictures! Logan is so adorable. He is an acceptable boyfriend for Gwen Both of them behaved amazingly (except at the lures but.... lures!). I was so proud of Gwen. It was so much fun to meet you and Logan and Sizzle and all the dobes. Logan got so many ribbons! And Gav was a cutie. I love his ears

We'll have to do this again next year, but hopefully we'll get to hang out before that. There's a fall show, right?

And thanks again for taking pictures of Gwen. Chaz would have hated me if you and Sizzle hadn't been there.

Unfortunately, the big fall show (in Salina) has been cancelled for the last two years. There are some good-sized ones over the summer in Tulsa and Oklahoma City though! I think one at the end of May, and one at the end of June? I don't know when the nearest lure coursing event is, but I think it's also in Tulsa in June.

I had a great time meeting everyone and all their dogs, too!

Congrats on the wins. Looks like you had a busy busy weekend. Where do you guys go to look up info on non-sighthound breeds lure coursing? I don't think AKC allows non-sighthound breeds to lure course.

On the contrary... the dogs in this thread have AKC Coursing titles.... specifically, Coursing Ability titles. Any breed can get a CA, CAA. CAX etc. but only sighthound breeds can participate in competitive AKC lure coursing.

More info on the CAT program: http://classic.akc.org/events/coursi...test/index.cfm

Ok I thought it was AKC that didn't allow non-sighthound breeds to compete for titles. Its probably AFSA. I'm always getting them confused. Thanks Sizzle for that info. I will have to check into it for Ivan.
