Abrams officially sat pretty today! He sat up, held his feet correctly, and stayed in that position!!!! Omigod, he was so freaking cute!!! Only issue was then I got excited so he started offering pretties and then launching himself skyward...but then he did it again!!

If he makes this is default he'll get anything he wants. He's freaking adorable.

For the first time, I saw not one but TWO judges withhold ribbons (in one case withheld 1st place and handed out 2nd place, in the other 3 cases withheld them completely). The dogs in question were declared "overly massive" (obese) when compared to the breed standard.

I always gain a little respect for a judge willing to withhold.





We had our first UKC venture today. Mimi ended up with a handful of flat ribbons (adult female 1st, best female, best of winners and best of breed) and group second in both shows. Ezzie got best (only!) male and behaved very nicely for my friend, who I train agility with but has never shown conformation! I think she had more fun than she thought she would.

I haven't decided entirely what I think of UKC vs. AKC. I don't dislike it by any means, and I'd definitely attend another convenient local show, but I do miss the showmanship aspect of AKC. I like feeling like I've actually earned something and having an extra second to "show" the dog.

Ugh, poor miserable Maisy and her poop puke. And poor me for having to clean it up. HAPPY SUNDAY.

Trying to impress me because you "love shelties" and then complimenting my three "tricolors."
No.

I want another puppy. Logically, three dogs would be a stretch, but SO. MUCH. WANT.
