I will always remember showing to Alvin Eng because it was by far the worst time in the ring with my girl who had completely shut down, and he was simply the kindest and nicest person the entire time. He encouraged me to have her follow through with every single exercise and by the very end she was able to bring back a correct article and we ended on a good note. I think most other judges would have lost patience with my frozen dog but he was just wonderful!If you get the chance to show to Alvin Eng, do it!
My 2023 goals are to get said dog's final UD leg if she doesn't get it in December, then retire her in obedience and start tracking.
I hope to get my boy's UD and maybe even UDX in 2023!
