I am one lucky dog and when I heard about the opportunity to help raise funds for pets less fortunate than I am, I said sign me up! Plus, I get to go on a walk with fellow dogs and humans. Yipee! I sent out an email to all my, Alpha’s and Alpha Fem’s friends asking them to sponsor me for the walk and I raised $570! Team Pets for Fitness raised $1670 and we came in 4th place. We raised over $20,000 total for the Humane Society.
Thank you so much for your generous support.
Here I am trying on my new shades I’m going to be sporting on the walk.
Alpha Fem and I are ready for the walk. Alpha had to teach yoga so he met us later.
This is my buddy Miss Mandy or shall I say, Miss Butterfly.
And here are my hiking buddies with Nose for Adventure.
After the walk, I joined the Weimaraner Crew and tried to pass.
The post walk party was held at Ruby and Bella’s home. Over 15 of us dogs ran around and
swam. The water felt great after walking in the hot sun.
It was an awesome day. Yes, I do settle down eventually, especially after an action packed day and a bath.
It’s hard to believe a year has gone by since my first conformation match. I was just a wee one then and don’t remember much except a nice lady named Melisa was my Handler. This year, Alpha decided to give it a go and be my Handler. Usually Alpha and I run, bike, swim, do agility runs, but lately, I’ve been having to practice standing still which is really hard for me.
This morning I jumped into the backseat of the car for another adventure. I didn’t know where we were going but I knew it would be somewhere fun. We went to the vet a few days ago and that was fun too. Even before I got out of the car, I smelled all the other dogs at the match. I got very excited to meet everyone. That’s my favorite thing to do – greet people.
The match started and my first time in the ring wasn’t that fun. It was just me because I was the only Vizsla in the match. The judge tried to look at my teeth and feel my balls. I was fidgety and couldn’t stand still as we practiced at home. I got Best in Breed anyway since I was the only V. Now we had to wait until all the other dogs had their turn in the ring. I had to sit in my crate. I don’t mind sitting in my crate because Alpha brought my duck to keep me company.
OK, it’s time for us to get back in the ring. This time, I am with all the best of breeds in the Sporting Dog Category. Alpha and I are ready and we have our game faces on.
I like it better when other dogs are in the ring with me, that way I can watch what they are doing and follow along. It’s more fun running around the ring with other dogs.
Here is a clip of my performance in the ring:
Alpha was so shocked that I got third place that he started to leave the ring and the stewart had to call him back. We got our picture taken with the winners. Here I am with my third place ribbon.
I don’t know how far I will pursue my show career. But I do know that I enjoy the victory lap and the applause.
