Took Nami and her pup to meet up with friends on Sunday, September 21st at a dog show. We had no plans on entering when we arrived, but the registration was open and very tempting. So we did.
Fionna (puppy) took home 4th place all breed female in her age group (4-6 months). Nami didn't have any competition for her breed and group, but took home BOB and 1st place all the same. She went up against Sumiko, our new Kai Ken friend for the rare breed match. Sumiko took the ribbon (congrats to her and her owners!) but Nami and I got some excellent feedback from the judge.
We had the same judge for both of our matches, as chance had it, so that's one more person who has more breed knowledge than he started with! I was so overwhelmed in the environment that I didn't really do a lot of talking with people. Next time!
