Holmes made his De-Butt as a special today. He was Best of Breed over two other Specials and three class bitches. In Colorado that is enough for a Grand Champion Major. Nothing happened in the Group EXCEPT Holmes did not look out of place. He is an elegant looking young dog with a floating side gait. He still needs more table time so that he’s comfortable, but he wasn’t bad on the table — Wendy just mentioned he could be more comfortable. The show is in an equestrian center on packed dirt. The grooming is in tents outside — could be more comfortable, but obviously, I’m happy with everything up here today.
I took a photo with the iPhone, but the distance was too great. I don’t think the little Olympus would have done much better, and I did not bring the Nikon — one too many things to keep track of.
Nola is still not flexing her rear legs. She’ll get another massage after we show tomorrow. Then I need to find a way to confine her — very tricky for the flying red puppy.
I’ll check in tomorrow — and will post short results on FB.
