Sizzle and I hit the Canfield, OH show on Friday, Aug 5th and had a blast for both of our very first time in the ring.
The judge complimented her and I saying she was a very nicely put together pup and very well trained and we accepted our best of breed rosette.
We went on to group where she continued to show her little heart out for me and earned even more compliments from the judge on her structure and angulation. He really went over her thoroughly, more than the other puppies..why I have no idea. t Sizzle stood there like a dream and never moved while he checked her teeth again, ran his hands down her shoulders, across her back, down her back legs and up her tail and commented on how nicely muscled she was for her age.
We ended up with a group 3 placement behind two handlers and in front of another! Not too bad at all for two total novices in the conformation ring. It definitely gave me a bit of faith that I can do this with this dog,,,of course SHE helps because she is such a wonderful little girl!
