Sunndalsøra 2012

I'm in (or possibly at) Sunndalsøra as we speak, where we're attending our first dog show of 2012. It feels so good to be showing, and seeing all our dog friends again! Since Cuda has been degraded to family mascot, he's just along for the ride and the social training of the whole ordeal.

Day 1

Theo, our little star, proved himself in the show ring today - despite the cold, wet and windy weather. I didn't sleep very well last night, so it was quite painful to be up and about before 10 AM. But who on Earth cares when my little fuzzball made me so proud? He received EXL1 CK BHK4, which basically means that he was awarded a red ribbon for excellent quality and placed first in his class, received CK or «champion quality» - and the CK let him compete for the Best Male title, where he came in fourth. An experienced shower might not be too pleased with results like these, but I'm still an amateur and I was smiling from ear to ear when I saw the judge handing him the EXL ribbon. I would have been pleased with nothing more! In addition, his critique was really nice.

Maskulin hann. Meget god type. Herlig hode + uttrykk. God hals og overlinje. Velansatt hale. Normalt vinklet. Velkroppet, utmerket pels. Beveger seg bra.
