Dog Show: Terry-All Kennel Club, 2017

About two weeks ago, we were at the Terry-All Kennel Club Dog Show.  This is a much smaller show than we attended in February.  We brought both Gunnar and Ramen, which was the first time we brought more than one dog in quite a while.


The boys were very excited to leave for the show and were like this (^) most of the 1-hour drive both mornings.


I find it entertaining that I always (incorrectly) call our dog show "grooming space" a "stall," and we were literally in a stall, in the Horse Barn, at this show.  So, for once, I was not incorrect.  :-)  The barn provided nice shade from the heat on Saturday, but not much protection from the wind on Sunday.  Several of the exhibitors had tarps hung on the stall fencing to help block the wind... I think I need to add a tarp and clips to our show equipment for next time.


Regardless, we had a very fun weekend.

Gunnar and Ramen split the Best of Breed awards and both received very nice comments from the judges we met.





We always say "fun first."  Especially with an independent-thinking, self-motivated breed, if the dogs aren't having fun at the show, they aren't going to do it.


Ramen took that rule to heart on Sunday, and his handler handled it with grace.  :-)
