Edy's first show
« on: May 21, 2007, 10:07:36 AM »
Well ,I took Edy to her first real show this weekend . She placed 2nd in her class . She behaved better that I expected with the judge , she still wiggled , licked the judge and tried to roll over for a belly rub (but I got her back to paying attention to me) . The judge just laughed and said what a silly little puppy Edy was . That was my biggest fear -that the judge would be upset at the way she wiggles .

It was a learning experience , I thought I was calm but when baiting her I noticed my hand shaking .
 I had a friend watching and she said that I did well handling . Edy jumped when a dog barked at her from outside the ring on her down and back , so I stopped and walked back to begin again . Over all it was a good experience .

As I was leaving the ring the judge commented on how nice Edy was and that she will be great one she grows up .  ;D .

Good job Edy!! :thumbsup:  Sounda like a fantastic debut.  Pups can get away w/ A LOT.. lol.  (just fyi, at Bru's first show, he took off after his mom who was entered for breed, when she was doing her down and back.. his lead slipped, and off he went!   :wall: .. the judge and everyone ringside had a good laugh. :laugh4: and if you look at Bru's win pic, the judge it looks like the judge is still laughing.   :yes: )

Way to go Edy! :)

Yes, puppies do get a lot of leeway, and often are great entertainment!  I believe somewhere there's a video of Mr. Bru's antics, and just ask Jill (Jinxx) about her escapades with Cash. :lol:  A friend of mine just posted a great pic of her young boy's ringtime fun - scroll down about 1/2 way:

That's a great comment; I usually get they'll be good once they're trained, or once they're with a (competent, is the insinuation) handler.  :P

LOL, unfortunately Ca$h was NOT a pup during his big-err, um, incident.
He sure has given me a run for the money in his career though, starting with his first match in which he refused to let go of my sweater sleave.
someday I'll figure out how to download his well known video.

It just wouldn't be right if a pup didn't wiggle and have fun in the ring.

That sounds like a fabulous debut - not too much tomfoolery or nerves, and some very good comments!

Way to Go Edy !!!!   :partybanana:

When up at Canfield OH , there was a dog there which I belive was a little over a year old flipping around like a fish on a line  ::)  .  I can tell you the Handler was not too thrilled with the way this boy was acting .......   :smash:

Congrats! Glad to hear Edy behaved better than expected. And received such a nice comment from the judge as well! :)

I think we all have had our share of not so great moments in the ring (and unfortunately, like Jill, it hasn't only been with the puppies for me either... :wall:). I have a couple photos of Ruby at her first show. She was 7 months and had been doing wonderfully at home with everything but we get to the show and it was a whole different story. She didn't stand so well for exam but worse than that, she thought it was playtime on the go around. Hard to see movement when one is going around the ring like this:




However, I'd rather have a puppy bounce around the ring than do what DB was doing in the photo Jennifer linked to! That boy is such a goof!! :laugh4:
