Halo took High in Trial today at the Shorthair Nationals from the Novice B class with a score of 196. Needless to say, I am very proud of my girl.
That's FABULOUS! Nice work!
Oh wow...that's great! Congrats!
There's a photo of you and Belle, and Halo, up on their site...
Somer - Ringo didn't make the cut today in Sweepstakes, but I was happy with the way he showed for the first time in the ring. Belle NQ'd because she decided it would be more fun to play with the dumbell when she brought it back to me. She was in Open A. Nonetheless, I was happy with her performance as she showed great enthusiam in the ring which is a big challenge with shorthairs and obedience. She also was doing what she does best, entertaining the crowd.
Pixie - Ok, today I will accept the obedience goddess title, but only for Halo.
She only lost 4 points and those were in the heeling pattern. She had one lag on an about turn. She probably lost another 1/2 point on her finish on the recall. But all in all an awesome performance. She got two gorgeous rosettes and a beautiful bronze statue of a GSP on point. It is about 8 inches tall and about 10 inches long. Has a placard with the HIT and the event, date and location.
A HUGE Congrats Bev!!! You must be on cloud 9!
I never knew Obie Robinson personally, but I have heard great stories about him from my two mentors Joyce Morgan and Marty Coody. Both knew Obie well and admired him greatly.
Obie Robinson did a good job with the trophy. It is beautiful. It will look absolutely stunning on the mantle in my house. And yes I am still on cloud nine.
Halo got a special treat tonight. She had a medium rare bison tenderloin. I had some too and it was delicious.
