Monday And We Say Hello To Victoria
We didn't go to any classes with Jack and Rose this week. We got Rose ready for the BTA open show on Friday and Saturday. We decided not to take Jack to the show as he has been worrying about Rose on her season and has lost a lot of weight due to nervous energy. On Sunday we went to the BTA Open Show. The roads on the way there were very clear as no one was going to Gatwick or Heathrow airports due to the ash cloud.
When we got there Sonny played with Charles Joe and Lucia Zanelli and had lots of fun. Rose was in minor puppy bitch, puppy bitch and junior bitch.
I took Rose round the ring before the show started,to get her used to the ring. She played up for me and kept looking at my dad and bouncing about. Rose was the only one in minor puppy bitch and got first. She behaved much better in there than before the show and I was very glad that I took her in to have a practice. In puppy bitch Rose got first! She stood quite well,but was quite nervous about the dogs behind her so we will have to practice standing on the floor a bit more at ring craft. In junior bitch Rose got 2nd! Well done to Dorothy Owen with Bisbee Belle Inni who got 1st, then went on to get Reserve best In Show. Rose got best puppy bitch and then went on to get Best Puppy In show! I also handled Poppy (Rose's mum) and Chokko (Rose's dad) in limit bitch and breeders dog or bitch.
Well done every one, all the dogs were turned out beautifully,as usual. There was a really nice atmosphere at ringside and it was great to catch up with people.
Her smile says it all
