Life has been crazy around here since I last posted. The two litters keep us busy, of course, but last week I was on the road a lot, either because of the dogs (training class, dog shows, picking up a dog from a friend) or because of work. That's why the photo sessions and this post have been delayed.
Oh...and did I mention laundry? Lots and lots of puppy laundry!
Chance, Winter, and I went to shows in Bloomington, IL over the Memorial Day weekend. Chance was a total disappointment. He made it very clear that he did like showing, especially the in Group rings (although on Friday he actually managed to get a Group 2 in the Owner-Handled Group). I could tell he was unnerved by all the cheering and clapping and general air of excitement and anticipation that is part of the Group judging. So...since he already has his championship and obviously wants no part in showing anymore, his show career is now officially over!
It's kind of sad really because he is a beautiful Lhasa and could go far. But the attitude has to be there. Again, showing is not for every person -- or for every dog! And he was clearly telling me, "No more, Mom!"
