The Lethbridge Show

We always enjoy our local show - it's the one time when we don't have too far to go or need to stay overnight somewhere in order to show and trial our dogs.  This year the Lethbridge and District Kennel Club celebrated their 50th Anniversary.

To make it even more exciting, the FCRSC held a booster in conjunction with the show, in order to encourage more flat-coats to enter.  I think there were a grand total of 15 flat-coats entered, which is excellent for Alberta shows!

Tinbie did very well in conformation - he won Best of Breed all three days.  And he had some very good competition in the show ring, making the wins extra-special.  On the last day he also won a Group 4th, which was the icing on the cake.  This was the only all -breed show he was shown in this year.

Our friend, Rookie, also had a very good weekend, finishing his Canadian Championship by winning Best of Winners on Friday and Saturday.  Congratulations Rookie and Shawna!

Most of my attention was on obedience and rally, with Cava entered in 2 trials of each.  She easily finished her Rally Novice title, scoring 99/100 in both trials.   Her first round of obedience was lovely, but she had a "scratch for exam" rather than a stand for exam and failed.  She managed to pass the second trial, winning high in class and getting her 2nd CD leg.

We had the pleasure of having Willow with us all weekend and showing her in conformation.  She was reserve winners female on Friday and Saturday.  Teva and Michele also joined us, so it was quite the family reunion!
