I love the drive from Rotorua to Wanganui through Tongariro National Park ! Chelsea and Ruby were supposed to come with me but a change in Chelsea plans meant they stay home so I had a motel to myself !
Riot won BOB at all 4 shows and a Junior in Show at the Gundog Specialty, Miley won another BCC and RBCC, and Ruby's baby puppy Storm was entered ...So took him with me even though Ruby stayed home. What a rat bag he is, he has a mind of his own and when he doesn't get his way puts the stubborn on, so it was a weekend of stop start and leap frogging lol
I only took Riot and Miley as plans changed at the last minute so Clarke 7 Suga stayed home.
The ups and downs of show dogs - Riot did not move well at the Saturday show so off to the canine physio - this dog leaps off all sorts of stuff and has no respect for his body, and as suspected he'd put his back out. Luckily Miley showed like a dream and was shortlisted for Puppy of Group. I was really hoping she won it as Last Year it was won by Riot (her half brother) and the year before by their father Connor... but its wasn't meant to be.
Sunday Riot had another physio session before winning BOB but is still sore, so I'll have to work out how to keep him quiet all week ... easy said than done lol AND Miley won RBOB and another BCC, even though she has won 3 others, this is the first that counts towards her NZCH title as the others were awarded before she was 6mths of age.
What a crazy weekend, with 3 extra visitors & their dogs, and being Sec/Tres and Show Convener for the Waikato Spaniel Show, + our AGM I'm exhausted ! and to be honest I can't even remember which dogs I showed and when, as the 3 girls Zoe, Ruby and my niece Edie showed all the dogs other than Riot. But one of the highlights of my weekend was showing Connor - its been almost a year since he's been to a show and he has a extra special place in my heart.
