Colorado Springs – Day 1 – Photos Added

June 12, 2010

It is cold and rainy — so very glad this is an indoor show.  Despite the entire Cardigan judging panel being re-written, we had a splendid day.  First (and most important in my book), even though I haven’t seen Chase in a month, he went into the Novice B ring with me, earned a 3rd place, and completed his CD.  All I can say about him is that I couldn’t ask for a more willing companion.  He also was Best of Breed, our Holmes-puppy earned his 1st point by going Best of Winners, Little Leidy-Lou was Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite Sex for another point.  Chase didn’t do anything in the Group which didn’t start until 6:00 tonight.  Dogs are fed and flopped around the hotel room, but I’m starved so will go grab a bite.  We had Holmes photographed for his “first point”.  When I receive it, you’d better believe you will see it here first!

Evangers sponsors these shows and as prizes we received a dozen cans of their “duck with sweet potatoes”, “beef and rice”, “smoked chicken”.  They also gave me two bags of their jerky treat.  Good job, dogs!  This may be the way I feed at shows — so much easier than hauling a cooler and trying to thaw just enough food for each meal.

Inca is staying at Adrienne’s home and today I received a “text” message of her sprawled on Adrienne’s bed.  I’m afraid she won’t want to come home.

Over and out!

I left the dogs in the room to drive through McDonald’s for a salad.  Holmes was in one of the fabric crates — right here:

The crate was here 6-12-2010

When I got back (15 minutes perhaps) the crate was here — see those sparkling corgi eyes through the mesh.

The crate finished here 6-12-2010

    Congrats to all. Sounds like a good time was had by all including Inca at home.

    Congratulations all around – a very good day!

    Love those moveable crates. One day we were out in the tracking field and we put Spencer and Terv in a Terv sized soft crate. A few minutes later we looked back and they were systematically rolling the crate towards us. Don’t know how they engineered it but they figured it out!

    At least he didn’t chew his way out! Liam did that, wire or plastic crates only for him from now on out!

    That sounds like a whole lot of success! Congrats! Especially on that CD! WooHoo!

    Too funny about Holmes and his crate! I had one of those light weight ones and tried using it at an agility trial. Wilson walked it several rows over and down some! Scared me good at first when I thought he was gone. I don’t use it anymore…..

    Congrats on a very successful day!

    Sabrina thinks she is a hamster in a ball in the fabric crates too.

    A Good Day. 🙂
