This past weekend was the AB regional specialty for golden retrievers plus an all-breed show. There were 57 goldens plus all the ones entered in obedience. The winner of the specialty was a 12 year old female veteran – well deserved plus a wonderful scene of happy handler and happy dog. They were thrilled to be in that ring and you can see it.
Jigar did nothing in the specialty – was expected as he is starting to hit the teenager stage. But did get 2nd place puppy in group!
Maci got to pretend to be a show dog in the parade of veterans. Any golden, 7 or older can be entered. The judge reads commentary you wrote and everyone gets a ribbon. Love the veterans!
Harley has completely redeemed himself from digging a hole to China in the backyard. He got 2 legs with 2 1st places in rally excellant. And his last time in the ring he was under 2 minutes!!! His score on Saturday was high enough to give us Highest scoring golden in trial for a ribbon as big as him.
Love these brats. Next??? Training Jigar for rally and obedience….this is going to be fine. And challenging—of course he is completely different in learning style than Harley. Us humans never get to quit learning LOL
