Thank you!

A rambling update on Day 4

So today was good and bad, and definitely stressful.

There are 16 bitches entered. It's another major.
Carly finished yesterday, so we don't want to show her unless absolutely necessary to keep from breaking the major. I want Sage to win the major! (she had a major reserve yesterday).

One disastrous thing after another happened at this ring - one bitch excused for not wanting her teeth examined. Another bitch almost excused for the same thing. Neither one of these bitches have had an issue before with this - it was definitely a thing with this particular judge. But whatever. Our friend took a tumble in the BredBy class and really hurt her leg. And dogs were pooping in the ring! Good grief. Anyway, it was just a nightmare in the GSD ring.

So anyway, Sage wins the AmBred class.

We got all panicky when the one AmBred bitch was excused, and the other AmBred bitch almost excused. Uh oh. What if this judge goes nuts and breaks the major. So we decide to show Carly in her Open class. My handler picked up her number, and I raced to the grooming site to get her.

Well, Carly isn't groomed. At all. I jerk her out of her crate, snap a lead on her, and run to the ring, and hand her over to her breeder to take in the ring.

We don't want her to win. My friend just lets her fiddle around in the ring. But Carly is a moving fool no matter what, and wins her class. Uh oh.

Sooooo. My handler goes back in on Sage, and my friend takes Carly in. There are some really nice bitches in there, but, you guessed it. Carly goes Winners AGAIN and gets the major. Eeek. Sorry guys.

I guess she REALLY is finished, LOL.

I'm done trying to make Carly look bad! Guess we'll make a run for that Grand Championship.

(sorry for the play by play - I'm still shaking my head over the whole thing! "Hey remember that crazy weekend in Chickasha when we finished Carly?"... )

Oh too bad you couldn't get the win on the other one. But it sounds like you had a good day anyhow. Carly must be one awesome bitch. Congratulations.
