It has been a VERY long weekend. I don't think I'll do another 4-day show. It's long and exhausting. But I had a TON of fun, and got to meet Sizzle and Airn! Everything was horribly disorganized, which didn't help any. But there were more dogs and more vendors than last year, so that part's looking up. FRIDAY Friday was 2 CATs and a match. Kaylee, Rocket, Gwen, Logan, and Gavroche all ran 2 CATs each, and all got 2 legs except Rocket. He got 1 leg, and it was through no fault of Aryn. It was a terrible judgement call on the part of the coursing people. I'd have been pissed if it was my dog. Logan and Poison were in the match. I'm not sure how Poison did - I saw her in the ring for the first part, then I moved to where adult BIS was going to be judged...and waited forever (I thought it was going to happen much quicker, which is why I moved!). Logan got BOV and Group 1 by default (he was the only adult herding dog). They did not give out a reserve BIS in the match, but I think the pointer got BIS. I don't remember anymore lol. Our BIS judge ran away, so we were waiting until they found another one. The group/variety judge in the match LOVED Logan's structure. Gavroche got his CA title, and was TIRED. I'm super proud because he ran the FULL course for all 3 legs. He was eligible for the half-course since he's a flat-faced dog, but he has enough of a muzzle and loves it enough that I let him run the full length. He crashed HARD after his first run of the day, he slipped and rolled at the end of the course. Then he nearly fell at the end of the second run, too. He was definitely sore the next day, and yesterday. Today he seems better, though. My makeshift grooming table Logan waiting not-so-patiently for BIS. He and Gwen got into a contest to see who could be the cutest and get the most attention lol. Logan was convinced Gwen MUST be a collie, because she's pointy and tri-color. Rocket MORE.
