The next day, he moved up and earned 2 GCH Points with a Select Dog ribbon.
What we love most about Shadowfax is his exuberant, fun-loving nature. Eternal tail wagger, and friend to everyone he sees, I was mortified when he licked the judge in the face during his exam, but relieved when it seemed the judge didn’t mind. 😆
CONGRATULATIONS also to Lori and Sterling for earning a 4pt Major on Saturday!!!! So happy to see you two together in the ring. 😉
We also spent most of Saturday picking up and transporting three different rescue dogs. Their situations were urgent, and we’re glad we were able to help. One was a Longhaired Weimaraner and he was beautiful!!!
Sadly, on Sunday, our WEIMBUS crapped out on us, so we had to scramble to get a rental car, and all of our dogs moved into it so we could hobble the WEIMBUS over to the repair shop.
All in all, a fabulous, productive weekend.
Back at home, Barry babysat a puppy who wasn’t feeling well, and plenty more who were!
NEXT WEEKEND’S AGENDA:
Hopefully back to CA to pickup the repaired WEIMBUS. Some more rescue transports, and rescue placements. And finally, some PUPPY placements!
