We left our house early because the Puppy/Veteran Sweeps for the Chessies were scheduled to start at 8:45 am. Sweeps were on time, but due to a judge change, the rest of the Chessies did not show until after 11 am. There were only a few dogs entered in sweeps so we had a nice big gap of time. It actually worked out because not only did I have time to meet Leroy and watch him show, (more on that here), but we also had some time to shop at the various vendors. Our mission: something for destructo pup to chew. More on that another time. Unfortunately, we could not stay at the show the entire day because we have Freighter at home and he cannot last hours and hours without a potty break. We watched the Chessies and then skedaddled. Unfortunately, we were a little late for Freighter and he was not pleased. Poor guy.
I took a few pictures. Again, my camera does not do well in the lighting at Cobo. Plus the ring the Chessies had required us to sit quite far away from the dogs. I have found that using my zoom in the Cobo lighting also makes for blurry pictures. As a result, many of my pictures were not very good. Sorry.
This is Millet. Her people also have Woody, one of Freighter’s brothers. Millet hasn’t spent a ton of time in the ring, but she and her owner/handler did a great job at a big show.
Storm’s breeder had several dogs entered and unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of them all. They had a good show.
Sadie had a great two days finishing her championship by earning Winner’s Bitch, Best of Winner’s, Best of Opposite Sex both days and taking Best Bred By Exhibitor in Breed on Sunday.
Storm’s breeders also had a Special Dog entered on Saturday and Sunday that took a Select and a Special Bitch entered on Sunday that took Select. On Saturday, a bitch they bred also took a Select.
It was a fun day and nice to just sit and watch the dogs. Congratulations to all of the winners!
