We had a very local dog show (in our town) so I decided to take a day off work today to enter Kili. This is Kili's third conformation show. She had her second about 2.5 weeks ago at an outdoor facility. It happened to coincide with her second fear phase though and she would not show. She refused to gait towards the big, white tent, she would not allow the judge (a strange man) near her, and she would not let me stack her. And at a show where we actually had competition! There was a beautiful 2 year old female there who ended up taking the group 2 of the 3 days. Needless to say I was very pleased with her performance today although the judge did not particularly fancy her. As you can see though, she rather fancied the judge! Her biggest problem in conformation is standing for exam. She just wants to make friends... and honestly I wouldn't change that base personality.
Personally, I think the judge was blind! ;)
(Sorry the music ends early... first try setting it to music. In the editor the song just starts over, but apparently not!)
