As you guys know, we rode out the tornado in Moore in my little house on Monday. Carly, Sage and Russell were all crammed in my closet with us when the big ol' EF-5 tornado hit. :(

Sage is entered in the big Tulsa dog show this weekend. Four all breed shows, and 2 GSD specialties. With all the tornado stuff going on in my neighborhood, I knew I couldn't go to the show, plus the minivan we bought 3 weeks ago that I was supposed to take to the dog show, was declared totaled by the insurance company yesterday. We still don't have electricity...

So yesterday, I walked Sage out of the neighborhood, down to the high school south of me, where my breeder picked her up. It was as close as she could get to our house. So off my little Sagey went, to go show in Tulsa.

I woke up awhile ago to a text from my breeder that said "And... Win. Best of Breed over 3 Specials. Judge said, easy choice".

I was so sleepy, that I didn't know which dog she was talking about, LOL. Her male, my Sage, our friend's dog Maggie?? She texted "tornado dog is BOB".

OMG. :D

Thanks guys :) I was whining all night long about how much I missed Sage. She is my heart dog, no doubt about it.

I am just beside myself that I can't be up in Tulsa to watch that girl in the Group ring. She is really a stunning dog, and (at the risk of making everyone crazy with talk of "side gait") she absolutely floats when she moves. My breeder called me and said "she set the bar pretty high in the ring today". I like that, LOL.

That win today was a bright spot in a very dismal and depressing week!

UPDATE:

At the Specialty this afternoon, Sage went Reserve. We show again tomorrow morning at another Specialty. Hopefully, she'll do good. She's finally reached the stage that she's ready to win.

UPDATE:

Saturday: Best of Breed (all breed show - entry of 26, but I don't know if any were absent)
Saturday GSD Specialty: Reserve
Sunday GSD Specialty: Reserve


Looks like that BOB the first day out might have been the high point, lol. Hey, I'll take it.
May or may not show tomorrow. It's a major in bitches, and Sage needs it. However, rumor has it that one of the handlers left 2 of the bitches at home, breaking our major. SERIOUSLY? I managed to got my tornado dog here, and he breaks the major? Sometimes dog show people can be such idiots.
