This ‘N That Thursday is for those times when you want to post about unrelated topics or each topic isn’t quite long enough to make up a whole post. It can be anything you want, so feel free to grab the button and join us!
I would like to thank Dorene, who is one of Storm’s breeders, for handling Storm in the show this past Saturday.
Storm can be a bit of a handful. Dog shows are not her favorite thing. She had a bad experience with a judge who startled her as a puppy so she would rather be anywhere but a show. She is more relaxed at outdoor shows, but they conflict with hunt test season. This indoor show was a chance to see how she would do now that she is older. I thought she did well in the ring and looked more relaxed than I have seen her. It is because Dorene does a such nice job with her.
This picture is from one of the last indoor shows Storm did in 2010. As you can see, she is not thrilled.
More Thank Yous
I received three blog awards recently (well a little longer than recently ).
Heat Like A Dog and Terrier Torrent both awarded us the Blog of the Year Award. As you can see, they were for 2012. I am a little behind. Thank you, Thank you for this wonderful award! It is always fun to discover new blogs so if you haven’t been to Heart Like A Dog or Terrier Torrent, stop by and check them out. You won’t be disappointed! Also, check out any of the blogs on my blogroll (which I need to update ).
Also, way back in the beginning of the January My GBGV Life gave is The Next Big Thing Award.
Thank you for this wonderful award Emma! If you haven’t met Emma yet, stop on over to My GBBV Life and say “Hi!”. Plus Emma has her very own store for those of you who need a shopping fix.
Tomorrow I will have some Follow-up and will attempt to answer some of the questions about dog shows.
