This month there were 2 weekends of shows indoors where I thought it would be good to take the pups for the atmosphere of being inside with hundreds of people and dogs. I had no expectations.
The first weekend saw Spirit take home another 18 points and she seemed to handle the atmosphere well. I brought Khaleesi out of retirement for support and she won best Neuter in Group x 2 and then Neuter in Show!
The following weekend was a massive 4 day (6 shows) over Easter long weekend. I decided to leave Reign at home and just concentrate on Spirit and again brought Khaleesi for support.
At the end of the 2 weekends 8 months old Spirit was sitting on a total of 75 points including a Minor Puppy in Group and at 7 1/2 years old Khaleesi amazingly:
1 x Neuter in Show
3 x Neuter in Group
5 x R/U Neuter in Group
