Juno was at her first show two weeks ago at 13 weeks of age in the minor puppy class. So proud of my little girl as she was completely unfazed, went around happily although she misbehaved by barking and whining her head off around the ring trying to grab treats from me... and proceeded to jump on the judge! He must have been amused by her antics because she was awarded 4th Best Minor Puppy in Show!! I'd actually just entered her for fun, and for the experience because the minor puppy awards are usually won by coated breeds such as Pekes and Poms.
Here is a picture of Juno and I with a huge rosette!
So excited about this little girl as she is showing even more promise than her already super-showy mom! Juno stands on the table PERFECTLY already and is completely fearless. She loves absolutely EVERYONE she meets and is always up for exploring new things and places!
Aside from the fact that she's a total demanding diva, Juno is just the loveliest puppy to live with. I still have to pinch myself to believe that she is not only mine, but that I bred her and have held her since she was born. I can only imagine the exciting things that are in store for the future.
Our next shows are on 20th July in Malacca. I'm not sure if we'll go yet, as Juno will still be in the minor puppy class and judging usually starts first thing in the morning... which means I'll have to be up at some ungodly hour in the morning to get to the show in time. After that, there won't be anymore shows till our big FCI show weekend in September. Good thing she'll be 6 months old then and will be in puppy class, which means she can compete for CCs.
In other news, Mirai (Vilarden's Unchained Melody) was at the show with Juno and won 2 CCs as well as 2 BOBs, finishing her Malaysian Champion title!
Unfortunately, Mirai doesn't like to show at ALL, so she'll just be the queen of the couch from now on... she likes hanging out on people's laps better anyway!
This is where I update news on shows that any of my dogs are entered in, or shows at which I'm just a spectator.
