The Princess was entered in a show in Doswell, VA, today. Our ring time was 8am which necessitated a 4am wake up call (Ugh). We arrived at the show around 7:45 only to learn that the judge scheduled for today had taken ill and there was a judging change - and a ring time change. New ring time? 11:45am. Not amused.
Fortunately, we had friends and family to visit with. Elizabeth and Jon Farleigh of The Chronicles of Cardigan came to the show to cheer for Miss G. Also visiting were Builder Mama and her son. We really appreciated the company and had a great time talking dogs in general and Cardigans in particular.
Georgia and Jon are littermates - you can see a little family resemblance in this photo.
We also took some pictures w/Brother Bogey (who is really a half-brother).
Then it was time to get ready for the ring.
We came out of the ring with Reserve and some nice comments from the judge. He said she's a nice girl who just needs to mature some. Since she's just barely a year, I can't argue with that.
When we got home, we tried for some free-stack shots. This was the best of the lot. She's not stretched out as much as she should be and, unfortunately, she appears to have twigs growing out of the top of her head :) I really need to get a copy of Photoshop and learn how to use it.....
Next weekend it is off to Atlanta and, hopefully, a major or two!
