Saturday'a Pre-Show: Spencer & Fennel took the day off. Cali and JJ may have well taken the day off, too :-(. Gotcha made her debut in the Nationals Altered Best of Breed ring all three Pre-Show & Nationals days, but failed to knock off the Big Boys & Girls. Owner/handler Trish Maddan looked great out there and reported "she had fun". And, we have to remember, people, that's why we do this. Gotcha had much bigger plans in mind (see Part 3). Panda and Nancy nailed a nice 3rd Place in Open Black Bitches. That was nice!
Sunday's Pre-Show: JJ & Spencer took the day off. Fennel won 2nd Place Altered Open Black.
Monday's Pre-Show: Spencer was still waiting for Judi to arrive...EBBTIDE AS YOU WISH "Cali" won 2nd Place in BBX - that made me smile. As well as JJ's 2nd Place in BBX Dogs!! Things are looking up! EBBTIDE YOUR WISH'S MY COMMAND "Panda" 4th Place Open Black Bitch. EBBTIDE FENNEL HILL CD "Fennel" FIRST PLACE Altered Open Black dogs. Gotcha and Susan had an awesome individual work in Novice B obedience, but was felled by a little rest on the Long Sit :-(( Did she sneak out to the Texas Roadhouse the night before?
