Ken and I went to the Three Rivers Shetland Sheepdog Of Greater Pittsburgh first back to back Sheltie Specialty. It was a very frigid weekend here but all in all a good one. For us, most of our dogs are blowing coat , but we went for the experience of getting them to "indoor" shows. Lainey, "Belaire's Town N Country" is really out of coat, but she showed well like she always does and Ken found out a few new ways she likes to move so it was worth it for her to go. We also showed our tri boy Mojo "Dury Voe Voodoo Magic RN" and he has come so far and showed like a pro for Ken. What a great team they make. He took second in his class the first day, but got it all together and won the Ambred class the second. Now our newest addition Beth, the tri puppy named "Lynmarr's Belaire Black Swan" is a real handful! She can be so bad sometimes and gave Elizabeth Brinkley who handled her for us a real work out. But again, by the second day she settled down, started to show and in a HUGE 6-9 puppy class took 2nd in Sweeps and 4th place in the regular classes. She is just beautiful, but BAD! Our special Degas, Am/Can CH Wynstone The Impressionist was shown too by Elizabeth, he looked beautiful but just was not these judges cup of tea. Thats OK, we love Degas and know of his super quality!!!! We had a great time and the club really did a good job putting on a super show!
Not to be forgotten is our puppy Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Belaire's Kingda Ka,"Coaster" or "RC", (roller coaster), as Ferebe Simons and her husband Jimmy like to call him. He was at some shows in Georgia, doing the "Ferebe Corgi Camp" thing and won his 6-9 month puppy class all weekend, taking a major Reserve one day!!!! Yeah for Coaster Poster as we call him. They said he is really enjoying this dog show thing! So good news all around.
Gloria and Ken
