I like this local show! Kip earned his second novice leg. I hope, I hope, we can complete his CD tomorrow.
Then there is the Chase-puppy. He’s a week short of being seven months old. I didn’t see him show because I was in another building with Kip. When I returned, a dog-friend handed me blue and purple ribbons. I learned the two points in dogs held. So, in his first show Chase took Winners Dog from the 6-9 month puppy class. I can’t thank my friend Bonnie Kellner enough for handling him — the schedule conflict probably saved the puppy from a terrible fate (me being at the end of his lead). When we took the winners photo (I’ll post it as soon as I get it), the judge said to me “THIS is a really nice puppy”. Many thanks to Judge Janice Leonard for putting up a baby. Everyone already knows how grateful I am to Tom and Carolyn for letting Chase leave Oregon to come to the high desert of New Mexico — but again, I love this little guy — Thank You.
. . . and we’re so proud of the other Constitution Litter puppies who have already earned points: Libby, Molly, and brother Pilot. Let’s go, kids!
You know, we had so much fun today I think we’ll go back tomorrow.
