For quite a while now, Squiggle hasn't been the biggest fan of the show ring and I have been working hard to try and make it a bit more exciting and rewarding for her. We have had a bit of a breakthrough this weekend though, with Squiggle, while still not at her best, being a lot more animated and moving better than she has been in the past. Soakies on the other hand, has decided she really likes the ring now and has been absolutely flying around the ring and stacking like she was born to be a show dog!
Yesterday, under spitz specialist Mr Brad Santas (NSW), Miss Squiggle picked up a Reserve Bitch Challenge and Runner up to Best of Breed to the lovely Niina and Soakies gained some more points with an uncontested Neuter of Breed.
Today however, Squiggle who was also celebrating her 3rd birthday, went one better, picking up up a lovely 9 point Bitch Challenge and Best of Breed under spitz specialist, Miss Amanda Huggins (NSW). Soakies absolutely flew to her Neuter of Breed (uncontested) win and had a great time in the ring, which is always the main thing for us.
A big congratulations must also go to today's Reserve Bitch Challenge and Runner up to Best of Breed winner, Alleria (Caleebra Armani Diamond), who is not only Squiggle's niece but also named after her. The two girls are very similar in looks and temperament so it was a lovely day for us.
