It feels like forever since I have been to a local show. My life as it is at the moment doesn’t really allow for time to bathe and groom, and during the week I don’t have the facilities for it. But there was a show close to Minden this weekend in Orono, so I entered Cara, Zeus and Dolly just to get out in the ring, and Athena was entered as well.
On Saturday Zeus was RWD, Cara was WB/BOW, and Athena was RWB. Dolly won the breed but got no love in the group.
Sunday was the type of day that makes you doubt your sanity for participating in this sport. This photo, taken with my phone, is what we arrived to:
That’s Becki trying to keep Corgis semi-dry!! And if it was “light rain” I would hate to think what it classifies as heavy!! In front of the tree line you can see the rain bouncing off the ground!!
In the ring, however, despite the mud, and losing a boot on the “go-around” to the suction from the mud, it was a better day and the two Olympians each won their first points. Athena (Yasashiikuma Athena’s Inspiration) was Winners Bitch
And then Zeus (Yasashiikuma Olympic Pride) went on to Best of Winners getting the crossover points. I’m glad his family was there to get to see the win. I’m afraid I am the eyesore in this photo – but the rain was torrential, therefore the “drowned rat” look
Congratulations to the families of these two puppies, and I look forward to seeing them grow up!!
Hot on the tail of this news came a text from the UK, that Darren (Yasashiikuma Telltail Dbledare) has made history as the first North American bred Cardigan to win the group at a championship show across the pond. Congratulations also go out to Lisa, Paula and Carrie on this tremendous win!
