St. Helens dog show Day 1!

Woo hoo!!! Bess and I have a dog show this weekend in St. Helens, OR. Today Bess went Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite Sex for a point!! The judge was Mr. Harold J Pybus. While we were getting our win picture taken with him he was very complimentary of Bess! He asked me if we had a hard time with her being natural eared. I told him that it wasn't necessarily the easiest thing, but we were plugging along. He said that she was a lovely bitch and that it really was a shame that we were showing in a country where natural ears weren't more acceptable and that she really should be getting put up more.:o) He had many nice things to say about her and I thanked him for putting us up and for his compliments on her. That was a serious self esteem booster! Needless to say, he's highlighted in my spreadsheet of judges that we've shown to that we REALLY want to show to again!

Congratulations Lindsay! That is awesome. I know how hard those points are to get :) We're seeing more and more natural ears in the ring here in the Midwest - and they're winning! Maybe the trend will grow.
