Default Dog show coming up at Purina Farms

My handler said hey, enter Sage in Belle City MO, we are trying to build a major.

So, okay, I entered Sage, who only needs a major to finish. Breed counts came out today. It's a 4 point major in dogs and bitches on Saturday, and a 5 point major (also both sides) on Sunday. Judges are James Noe and Arley Hussin. Never shown to either one of them. I might have a nervous breakdown in the next 2 weeks. I just looked at Sage and she looks like a skinny coyote. No, really.

We are also showing a male in Bred-By (bred by exhibitor). He's hardly been shown, just been waiting for him to grow up. He does have 2 or 3 Best of Breeds though. No, it's not Russell. I'm not showing that goofy thing till he's 5. Okay, maybe I'll show him when he's 2. Maybe.

Anyone in the vicinity of Purina Farms, come by and say hi! I'll either be crying or jumping up and down. The show is March 1-2.

(And yes, Belinda, it's the day of my Barn Hunt seminar! Darn it!)

Jim Noe is a collie breeder. I showed Shelties to him years ago. (My Shelties are nothing like the current type -- they all had/have excellent rear angulation and movement, but I digress.)

He used to be a decent judge, but I haven't shown or even attended a conformation show in several years.

Well, the show at Purina Farms is this weekend! Go, Sage! Anyway, I just had this little text exchange with my friend/breeder who is going to the dog show with me. She's showing a male GSD and a long haired miniature dachshund. She's driving her new minivan. We are officially insane.


FRIEND: "Don't freak out or anything, but have you looked at Gray Summit weather this weekend? Not to worry--I go no matter what. Wear layers!"

ME: "What??? Oh dear God. The polar vortex?? Is that what you are trying to tell me??? SNOW???!!! I am bathing Sage before we go. Are there indoor bathing facilities?"

FRIEND: "I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW CALM DOWN EVERYONE CALM DOWN WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER"

ME: "OMG OMG OMG THE MAJOR BETTER NOT BREAK WITH BAD WEATHER. Hey, wait a minute. This could work in our favorů Hmmm..."


I'm a little bit worried now about this trip. I really really hate winter weather. ARGHHH. That darn Sage better win.

There are 21 bitches entered on Saturday, and 25 on Sunday. Yikes. Maybe the snow will keep a few of them away. Not that miss Sage hasn't beaten 20 GSDs at a time before. Okay, once. When she went Best of Breed in Tulsa after the tornado. I'm freaking out just a bit.

Yes, there are indoor bathing facilities.

I hope it doesn't snow because I have an agility trial this weekend.

Good luck to you. My dear husband will be there one day with a shopping list from me.

National Weather Service says 50% chance of snow on Friday and Sunday. Brrrrr.

I hope I'm not too (a) frozen to shop (b) bummed out to shop (c) tired to shop. If we win, I am SO shopping, LOL.

Good luck with your agility trial.

Howdy Folks. I am brand spankin new to this forum. i have lurked for quite some time ... What a priceless resource this place is....At any rate, I am going to be at this show and looking at all sorts of dogs...Esp GSD, Mals + well is there anything else? Herding dogs are my favorites. I had my 13 year old GSD best friend pass on New year's Day. I am doing due diligence in looking for her replacement/successor. Private message me if you like and we can make connections at the show...it will be my first in many many years.
The weather is making me NUTS. Just gotta go with the flow. I have been snowed in 3 times this year in different places and I am really tired of it....not that I have any say .....I am getting excited about making connections with dog folks....
Have a great day + see you at the "Farm"!

GSDs don't show until 12:45 pm on Saturday, and at 1:00 pm on Sunday. That is a miracle. We ALWAYS show at the crack of dawn. This ring time makes me happy.

Come on by the grooming area and say hi! Here is the judging program, if you want to take a look at what time each breed shows, and what rings:
