That is the way it should be. Tag, my retired champion male, was just a dog between dog shows, but was one of the top show dogs in the country. I made sure that he had time off from the dog shows so that he continued to enjoy them.Quote: Wierd how now that we are home .he is just a dog. We went to the barn and he got filthy and played around with all the other dogs. Slept in my bed ect..
