Default SUNFLOWER CLUSTER! After 4 VERY long days, pics inside :)

It has been a VERY long weekend. I don't think I'll do another 4-day show. It's long and exhausting. But I had a TON of fun, and got to meet Sizzle and Airn! Everything was horribly disorganized, which didn't help any. But there were more dogs and more vendors than last year, so that part's looking up.

FRIDAY

Friday was 2 CATs and a match. Kaylee, Rocket, Gwen, Logan, and Gavroche all ran 2 CATs each, and all got 2 legs except Rocket. He got 1 leg, and it was through no fault of Aryn. It was a terrible judgement call on the part of the coursing people. I'd have been pissed if it was my dog. Logan and Poison were in the match. I'm not sure how Poison did - I saw her in the ring for the first part, then I moved to where adult BIS was going to be judged...and waited forever (I thought it was going to happen much quicker, which is why I moved!). Logan got BOV and Group 1 by default (he was the only adult herding dog). They did not give out a reserve BIS in the match, but I think the pointer got BIS. I don't remember anymore lol. Our BIS judge ran away, so we were waiting until they found another one. The group/variety judge in the match LOVED Logan's structure.

Gavroche got his CA title, and was TIRED. I'm super proud because he ran the FULL course for all 3 legs. He was eligible for the half-course since he's a flat-faced dog, but he has enough of a muzzle and loves it enough that I let him run the full length. He crashed HARD after his first run of the day, he slipped and rolled at the end of the course. Then he nearly fell at the end of the second run, too. He was definitely sore the next day, and yesterday. Today he seems better, though.

Logan waiting not-so-patiently for BIS. He and Gwen got into a contest to see who could be the cutest and get the most attention lol. Logan was convinced Gwen MUST be a collie, because she's pointy and tri-color.

Those are fantastic! Poisons legs really are almost impossibly thick for a bitches aren't they! I can't wait to see her all grown up!

SATURDAY

A CAT leg each for Logan, Rocket, Gwen, and Kaylee. Gwen got her CA title, YAY!! Afterwards I had conformation with Logan. He got Best of Winners, and I *think* he might have gotten a point, because he beat a puppy bitch and a special bitch, but I don't know for sure. Thus judge Saturday liked Logan the best out of the three judges we had in breed ring over the weekend.



Rocket













One of Logan waiting for his turn



Kaylee







I just realized these are in reverse order for each dog lol.

I love the way Gwen gets caught after a run. She just sort of flops over

SUNDAY

Logan had conformation again on Sunday, this time there was also a National Owner-Handler Series competition. Logan got Winners dog, but the puppy bitch didn't show up, so he couldn't get Best of Winners. He got Owner-Handler Group 2nd, which I was not expecting! He was beaten by a gorgeous bearded collie. I think we got 25 owner-handler points for the day, 5 for BOV and 20 for Group 2. I didn't know this thing had points or what it was even for until last night when I got home to research it. Apparently the top 10 owner-handler dogs of each breed at the end of the year (October marks the end of the year) get invited to a big national competition in Orlando in December. We will likely qualify, but I doubt I can afford to actually go

My dad took pictures Sunday, and he really has no idea how to work my camera, and the lighting is terrible to begin with (see Poison pictures lol). But at least I got some Logan pics!






















More, still!
