|Mr Loki with Sarah|
It was dry when we got to the show and though most breeds where already indoors our judge started judging the breed outside. With a huge tree in full leaf for shelter we were ok, but the rain started and increased the further on the judging went. Loki did amazingly well. I was so chuffed with him. His first time in with the big boys and he more than held his own, even if I say so myself he was on his toes and looked amazing. I was just a little deflated to get home to find my enthusiasm was not shared .. "he should have won!" Shit he's two and a half and was second in limit .. that's a big deal!

The first bitch is not in the photo
Sammi looked amazing in limit bitch, she moved like a dream. Sarah was disappointed at her position, but Sammi gave a great performance so I'm happy. Yeah she did very well and maybe one day she too will win "limit" and get her stud book number!

But it was not the only act of bad sportsmanship in the GSD ring yesterday ... The other thing I felt was unfair was a handler letting his bitch go right up another bitches arse as they gaited round. He had realised the bitch in front was reactive and just kept doing it. The handler asked him to keep back and he gave her an almost dumb smile. He fecking knew what he was doing, no need!
Talking of reactive, a bitch lunged out at Kaiah and Loki as I walked past, because Loki did not react neither did Kaiah. But a similar scenario with Sammi did not go as smoothly. Sammi doesn't tend to start trouble, but she won't back down from a challenge and will hold a life long grudge! That's one bitch to avoid in the future.
