Pebbles at the Crown Classic Dog Show

Well, Pebbles competed in her first dog show Saturday; The Crown Classic Dog Shows at the IX-Center in Cleveland.

She did great! She placed 4th out of 100's if not 1000's of Goldens. OK. I lied. There were only 4 in her class. Her sister placed 3rd.

It was the first time we were at a show where one of our dogs was entered. The breeder/handler was really happy with how she did too.

We couldn't be happier.

Unfortunately, I didn't get many pictures. The lighting in the place is really bad and the announcers announced several times asking people to not use flash. So I didn't. Wish I had better pictures to share.

Another reason I didn't get too many pictures is that Pebbles had been with the handler the entire previous week and we hadn't seen her. So we were afraid that if she saw us before the show, she would go nuts! So we were doing a lot of hiding behind people and stuff so she would see us.

Here is one of her outside the ring just before going in and the black and white is of her father.

Thanks for looking.

Pebbles looks outstanding. You must be a very busy man now your pursuing another endeavour.

The B&W suits the second photo very well. Very nice.

Great! Glad she seems to enjoy showing! With more practice things will keep getting better and better! I was there 3 of 4 days. Wish I would have known! Pebble's mom is littermate to my dog's dam!! Small dog world!

Really?! Small world indeed. Are you talking about Lilly? I think "Lilly" is right. I don't know how you breeders/show people keep all these names straight. Makes my head hurt.

Here are a few more random shots of various Goldens from that morning.

I think photo #5 is my dog!! Cami & Grace are littermates. Their mother is Lily. Grace is my dog's dam and Cami is Pebble's dam. Wishing you and Barb lots of luck with Pebbles.

That's interesting. Thanks for the info.
So, Grace is your dogs dam. What is your dogs name? Casey?
I guess your dog and Pebbles are cousins.

If you think #5 is your dog, I'll take a look and see if I have any others.
