Well, we took our wee boy to a show and looky looky how he did!!!
I have to say that this was one of the hardest things I've done in a long time! I was a wreck and alot of my nerves transfered to my boy. But, that being said Jazz won first place for his age and Best Male (okay so he was the only male and the only one in his age group). Hurray, then he won Best of WInners and Best of Breed against an 18 month old Champion girl. He held his own in Best of Group, only an honorable mention but it was very scary for him with a strange bigger intack male crowding up behind us. Yay Jazz!
This was our first time in the ring after what I now know was inadequate training(for me). Jazz was great very alert and he had the biggest smiles for the judges on his down and backs - what a ham! The rest, stacking and standing for examination was a little dicey for the little guy - and me. I had no clue what I was doing - or I did before I got there and then it all leaked out my ear.
He was actually in 2 shows one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The morning show was the minning show, we were fresh and I hadn't forgotten everything yet! In the afternoon, Jazzy just wanted go home, he wasn't sparkling and I wasn't helping, so he won First and Best Male again but after that we fizzled. Poor little guy just wanted to go home and nap!
As you can see the ribbons didn't mean much to him when we got home...he was happier with his prize - a nice little frozen bone, which he fell asleep chewing.
Everything was back to normal the next day - just look at that smile!!!
