The Spud is now a Grand Champion!

Postby Trademarkbark » Sun Jul 31, 2011 2:16 pm

So happy and proud of The Spud. She showed her little heart out this weekend (2 shows both days) and one judge put her first in the Champion class, giving her that elusive fifth and final leg needed to earn the Grand Champion title! Yea!!

Now she will be retired from conformation and start Rally training, while still conditioning and competing in racing and lure coursing. But I'm so glad she's done - she has started to get protective of me as she's matured and doesn't like the judges staring her down or trying to walk behind her. The Colliewogs have taught her well! ;)

I saw the black-headed one standing at ringside and liked him. I didn't get to see the other one (he must have been in the ring and I was sitting down).

She seems to be a natural and is a Colliewog by association. How cool is that :)

Congrats, that's huge!

Is she going to be bred, at some time, do you think?

Still deciding on that one. I have a waiting list for puppies from either her or OE. I won't be breeding both of them, and if/when I do breed one of them, it will be in a few years. They've got racing careers to work on first. ;)

Edit - the second picture is kind of an optical illusion - look at my legs. Which is the left and which is the right?? Weird ..
