We had an absolute blast up there, finding a beautiful spot for some photos and some space for the dogs to run. Getting on in years, Zero, who will be 12 next month, was the hardest to photograph because he can’t hear well anymore and can’t hold a sit comfortably for any length of time but I’m happy with what we were able to get! The snow was short lived, and was quite wet and slushy by the time we left but at least the dogs got to experience at least a little taste of what their ancestors would have dealt with every day in winter in Europe!
Today, we did something completely different as it was Slinky’s show debut at the Blaxland and Glenbrook & Citizens Kennel & Training Club’s championship show. She did me very proud getting baby puppy of breed and being shortlisted to the final 8 in Baby Puppy Sweepstakes from an entry of 33. The show ring is a very subjective place and so I never really have any expectations of winning but I was super proud of her for how she behaved in the ring. There was more than one exclamation of “what a good puppy!” It was a great opportunity to get some socialisation work in and Slink absolutely loved it!
