OKC Show Weekend Wrap Up

Ottawa Kennel Club show site, Richmond Fair Grounds, Ontario - Thursday evening set-up

It was a busy (and hot Sat & Sun) weekend for us as we had 3 of our dogs entered, our Senior Puppy "Whistler" owned by Linda Howie, our adult boy "Rush", and his sister "Ruby". Mucho thanks go to Penny for assisting in the grooming, ringside assistance and handling. Mary-Anne (our kennel Mgr on Sat carrying for our 14 new pups!) and Marylou @ the show site for all their setting up help, ringside assistance, keeping the dogs pottied and cool. Thanks to Kate (Panda's owner), and Linda for being there at the end on Sun and helping to do the take-down and van packing. Extra hands certainly make the work easier.

On Sunday it clouded over, was windy and thus cooler, and I think all the dogs found their extra wind and their "I'm full of it!!!" attitude, at least "Whistler" did.

All in all it was a great weekend. The highlight was Shelamo's Riding The Sky going Best Puppy In Show on Friday! and Winners Dog and Best of Opposite on Sunday.

Our Shelamo Sugar Rush garnered 4pts, going WD & BOS the 1st two days.

On Sunday Rachel Pratt was at ringside so I asked her to capture some ring moments ... here's a few of them."Whistler' baiting his heart out

if it's not me ... then he'll bait for the judge too if asked!

Penny with "Rush", baiting for the judge too ... love those hocks Kim :)

judge has asked his 2 1st placement males to 'show me your dogs' in front of him together
"Rush" is with Penny on the left, "Whistler" with me on the right

"Whistler" wins the 'face off' and takes another 2 pts .... Now time for the girls

Thanks for the virtual tour of the show -- it was one I really wanted to attend, but such was not to be. What lovely confident dogs!
