Skyla is letting her little pal, Axl, share some space on her blog. Axl, who just turned 4 months old today, went to his very first B Match last weekend in Salina. His first time in a show ring was a success. He won Best Puppy, Best of Breed, and a Puppy Herding Group 1! He thought he was a little rock star show dog...:) He did very well in the Puppy Best in Match but was a little bored with all the waiting around. Luckily, there were alots of other puppies to play with...:) Skyla was very proud of her little buddy...:)
Skyla and I made the trek up to the Des Moines dog show this weekend. We had to get up in the middle of the night and drive three hours to get there in enough time to get ready for an 8:00AM ring time. It was four point majors and we had to make sure Sky looked her very best. Well, it was our lucky day, the judge awarded Skyla WB, BOW, and BOS for her very first major! I can't tell everyone how exciting it was for both of us. Sky must of known something good happened because when we went back in for Breed, she was the happiest and most relaxed I have ever seen her in the ring. It made me so proud of my little girl. We have had a hard time until recently so to get a major was a huge boost to me and my girl. We are going to enjoy this win for a long time. My first major on my first show dog...something that only comes around once and I won't forget the feeling and I don't think Sky will either.
