Leaving in about five hours for the series of shows that Clue and Bronte are entered in; for the next 13 days I will be popping in and out but if you look for me and don't get a response I'm not dead, just covered with dog hair and HVing tiny bugs.<br><br>
By the way, for those who keep up, here's the lineup:<br><br>
Wed 7/2: 3 pt major<br>
Thurs 7/3: 3 pt major<br>
Wed 7/9: 2 pts<br>
Thurs 7/10: 2 pts<br>
Fri 7/11: 5 pt major<br>
Sat 7/12: 5 pt major<br>
Sun 7/13: 5 pt major<br><br>
Clue needs 8 more points; Bronte needs 15.<br><br>
In a strange way this makes me more relaxed, because my chances of taking a big major are pretty small. So I can enjoy the shows and not freak out so much.

Joanna--Wow, that's a lot of days! Now you're making me feel seriously spoiled here. I've got my first show in a while coming up next weekend and it's local and Saturday only! Who's coming along with you to help with the baby, etc.! I'm already starting to think of how I'm going to do this next year with a nursing kiddo, or if I'm just going to wait a year or so. I want to finish off Chance hopefully in the next 2-3 shows!<br><br>
How many times do you have to bathe the dogs?

We're back--we won. Bronte got a three-point major. Thrilling. Exhausted, utterly. Seven hours in the car. Baby came along; my sister helped. Going to fall face-forward on the bed now. More later.

Hi! A couple of hours of sleep does wonders.<br><br>
We showed both dogs today. I showed in the classes and then a friend of mine took Clue into Winners when they both won their classes (which they did, both against competition). Clue went Reserve to Bronte for the points, which is a huge compliment. Bronte got a good look for Best of Breed, but by that point (she had been in the ring under pressure for about 20 minutes) she was DONE and she just started pulling the lead and galloping for home. So I was very pleased to keep her up and happy long enough to get the points. This is a girl who is very uncertain in new situations, so the fact that she was relaxed enough to not just look like a complete freak is wonderful.<br><br>
I see lots of good questions on the board but unfortunately I have to leave again at 5 am to get back to the show site for a 10 am ring time, and then we go to VT for three days. I will see if I can pop back in later.

Hope you're having fun! Sounds like a whirlwind week. Congratulations to Bronte on her 3 points.<br><br>
So, is it 15 points to champion in AKC?

Update Thursday--SO dumped today! Bronte at least won her class but there was nada in winners. Clue got 3/3 in her class--I don't think she's ever done that! It was fine--I saw what style the judge was looking for and wow do I not have that type of dog. So now we're enjoying the 4th up with family and friends, and we start over on Wednesday the 9th.
