Grady's Weekend at the Dog Show















Our weekend at the dog show didn't quite go as well as planned. On Saturday, Grady showed wonderfully. He stacked out like a champ and floated around the ring. He looked beautiful. Unfortunately the judge didn't agree and Grady took last in his class. I don't believe that was the right place but judging is subjective. Still it does get discouraging when it is hard to understand how the judge made their decision. Sunday was a completely different story. He would not even stand for his exam. For whatever reason, he did not want to stand and no amount of coaxing would change his mind. He ended up being excused. The judge was very nice about it and just suggested I work with him. It really is hard we the judges only see the dogs for a short period of time. I know he is the sweetest boy and I wish all could see the same thing in him. I am a little bummed.

Sometimes those judges leave us with scratching our heads and wondering. Better luck next time.

Thanks Sylvia...I was particularly frustrated that he wouldn't stand for his exam on Sunday. You have had boys often. Any suggestions?

We've often wondered how judges arrive at their decisions. Usually the dog we like doesn't win.

Dennis the Vizsla, I love your hat. You are so fashion forward. I must have one.
