Well...it was my turn to try my hand at this handling thing...so here I am with Norman at our Club's B Match in Carrollton GA at the ag center. About 50 dogs turned out. Norm was the only cardi (no shocker there), so I got a lovely pink ribbon for first place and another one for best in breed. Then came group...it was Norman , a Border Collie, and a 3.5 month old female Pembroke puppy. The pem kinda... sorta...really...ran up on Norms posterior...it was pretty much over at that point. He went 100% nuts. Game over. guess who won group? the pem.
Emily's best buddy from pre-k , Dylan, came with her parents to cheer Norm on and to check out the doggage. We also met an adorable Cairn Terrier (Emily wants one). Handling was really fun. I must do this for-real sometime...we are headed to Asheville for the show this weekend. It's a pretty fair cardi enty (7-7-2-0). anyone else gona be there?
