Well, I braved it and did another show!
At 4 am yesterday we set out to Stafford with our friend Marlene Carter of Somanic Poodles and together we all had a fantastic day.
Peggy was entered into minor puppy bitch - a class for female puppies aged 6 - 9 months. I am delighted to report that Peggy won a Very Highly Commended (VHC) certificate; meaning that we came 5th in our class, beating 3 other dogs.
Peggy moved like a dream and stood very nicely for the judge (although she did give her a gentle kiss on the cheek as the judge went over her LOL)
I honestly could not have asked more from my Peggy pup and am so very proud of her.
Of course I was a nervous wreck with a dry mouth and was shaking all over as soon as I entered the ring with Peggy, but perhaps I was slightly less nervous compared to the last time. I'm really hoping that my confidence will improve if I choose to continue showing.
I also had the chance to catch up briefly with Naomi, who owns Edna's half brother Wallace and a stunning white girl called Vivienne, as well as meeting lots of lovely new people too.
Unfortunately there are not many photographs from the day, as I only had my camera phone with me, but below are some of the ones I managed to take.
