I find that if I just don't pay attention to the politics, I have more fun My dogs have never challenged for top spots (well Nikon got second a few times in small classes) but I've never not been given a rating I thought I deserved. I try my best to make my dogs presentable and introduce them to the ring and the procedures beforehand. Even Pan the crazy working line did really well (I thought) in his shows and outperformed some of the show lines as far as his movement, overall temperament, and being in really fit condition (he could have run ten more laps!). He got last place at his second show but still the top rating and it was the show right before the Sieger Show (with a judge who was at the Sieger Show) so I let the other owners get all worked up about the exact placements.

Thanks everyone. Shewww... that would really suck to have to leave here at home all weekend. Yes of course I would keep her well under control and well away from the ring!

Glad to hear your husband is coming, Lies- it will be cool to meet him!

He was like "is this the one where the German shepherds run in a circle or is flyball?" (and he says the word "flyball" with a tone of voice that I know he's referring to the screaming shrieking chaos).

That's the only way to say "flyball" ...that crazy sport!

As long as you are respectful in how you take out your dogs, etc and are not near the ring, trial field, that should be OK.

I'm not going to make it to the show. DH has to work out of town the whole weekend and I have no one to watch my kiddo and I dont think he could handle the cold.

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

I have to say I'm getting pretty excited about this. This will be the first trial I attend.

Agree with Lisa. Can't ask for better trial and show weather! Come for a few on Sat and say hi!
