First Local Dog Show Of The Year

This past weekend, Mary-Anne, Marylou and myself headed up to the 1st conformation show in our area, the Champlain Dog Show. It's close to a 2 hour drive and I don't think there was a quiet moment, as we chattered about everything and anything.

A Great Girls Weekend!

We showed our Shelamo That's Amore, "Ruby" all 3 days, and her litter brother Shelamo Sugar Rush just on the Friday. "Rush" is just now starting to coat up and learning the show ropes after the last 7 months doing obedience and having fun and Marylou's.

Our "Ruby" did us proud. Friday, we were off to a slow start, however we found ourselves taking Group 2nds both Saturday and Sunday for a total of 10 pts, in a very competitive field!

On Saturday our judge was Mrs. Otero from Argentina (she gave our "Tyme" a RWB/BPIB in 2007), and on Sunday, Mr. Charlie Bett from Ontario.

We took a few moments on Saturday while the sun was out to capture these 2 now as adults.

In trying to get these pictures of Rush ... it was RUN Marylou RUN!

Stunning photos! The close up of Rush (I think it's her) is so heart stopping. She has the sweetest face.

And thanks for the grooming tip. I will dispose of the loop thingy post haste. A sheltie owner gave it to me and I thought I was behind the times. We'll stick with the brush. My guy will never look like yours but I like to keep him as spiffy as I can.

Rush is a male. You're welcome on the grooming tip. I also don't recommend the Furminator as a deshedding tool.

LOL. I meant Ruby. The top picture that's a close up. I think that's Ruby, not Rush -- anyway whichever one it is, I like the hint of a smile. :-)

Is Ruby finished now or does she need a third judge? Great wins, Maureen! They both look gorgeous!

Ruby needs another judge. She does have the required pts, however they need 3 judges. If at a show she is the only class female present, and awarded Winners Female, she would finish.
