The schedule for the November shows is out! The judges this time will be from Canada and Ireland. Lyra's breeder, Derrick, will be judging groups 2 and 5 at the 339th MKA ABC show, that's the Pinscher/Schnauzer and Spitz groups, and group 3 at the 340th show--that's Terriers.
We'll be there (that's Lyra and I, obviously), see you if you're going! Am hoping to get pictures this time, test out my 85mm lens at that venue. Was just too busy at the last shows to do that.
Got more pictures from Devina the past week, and here they are! Decided to add in more fun photos instead of the usual stacking, walking around the ring pictures.
And some pictures of little Marvel!! He was such a good boy the entire weekend. Never made a peep, EVER. He just waited in his crate like a good boy while we were out of the ring, and happily walked around whenever I let him out. Miss the little guy so much.
Can't believe the year is coming to an end ALREADY! Wow. Time really flies when you're not really paying attention. So far, we've been to 15 shows (6 weekends) this year. 4 in March, 2 in April and May, 1 in June, 2 in July, and 4 in September. The next shows will be next month (mid-November, I think), and then the last shows of the year will be in Johor Bahru (again) in December. Am still feeling a bit lazy to drive all the way down, but some of my Singaporean friends will be there so perhaps I'll just make a trip there. We'll see.
But all in all, 12 CCs, 2 RCCs, 10 BOBs & 2 RBOBs in 15 shows is pretty good, don't you think?
Finally have some pictures from the last shows to share! Thanks to Gladys Tan for this very beautiful shot of Lyra free stacking and paying attention during group judging:
The rest of the pictures were taken by Devina:

Being a good girl while the judge (Mr. Dinky Santos) goes over her.
Looking so serious while waiting her turn...
Some amusing pictures of Elton (Int Ch & Mys Grand Ch Brendamay Yellow Brick Road) and his daughters, Adele, Lyra & Xaria.
There were also lots of other great pictures from the shows--click here to see them all!
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.
