Well, I am back from the Nationals with my two dogs, with less than desirable results. Neither one of them made it to the top 4. Max got sick already on the second day with bouts of diarrhea and vomiting, Pepe was also stressed to the maximum. But they did learn to ride elevators, walking into congested areas, seeing a lot of beautiful Papillons and Phalenes. And there is promise, and hope for the next shows to come.
Here just a few pics:
I had thought that Max being shown by June, a much more experienced handler than me, would have a better chance to place. But that was a huge mistake. He kept wining in the ring, constantly turning around to find me (I was hiding). All heavy mistakes to make in the show ring.
Now we know!!
