I am SSSOOOOO JEALOUS!!!!! I wish good luck to everyone who will be showing and although I may not be there physically, I am there in spirit cheering you on!!!! I DO watch on TV though, so how about when the cameras are panning the stands, you who are 'spectators' throw some kisses to those of us just watching!!!!!LOL! (My nephew plays FB for NMSU and whenever there's a televised game he tries to get close to a cameraman so he can wave to us!)

Thanks Everyone! I appreciate all the encouragement and support!



This will most likely be the last show for Xena,,, : (


I believe that she is up to 50 Grand Champion points, but she will also need to be bred once she come in heat, so we will not be striving for the metals.



Xena has come so far,,,


A. She took second seat to her brother Xavier, so we did not worry about showing her right off. When she was a year old we cut her down head to toe with a 7 blade. She has a fantastic coat (as good as any black or white) but a slow growing coat, so it took her a while to get into the show ring.



B. Xena took at placement at PCA this past year in the Bred By Exhibitor Class.



C. She is the fourth Apricot Standard Bred By Exhibitor champion. Her mother Ivy was the first, her father Tru was the second, Tabatha's boy, Lombardi, is the third and Xena is the fourth.



D. Xena became the first AKC Apricot Standard Grand Champion.



E. She is not the first apricot standard at Westminster, but we know there have not been all that many. (Tabatha, you NEED to go!)



F. All her testing came back good.


OFA- good
vWD- clear by parentage
SA- normal
Thyroid- normal
Eyes CERF- normal
ATCH- normal range
Kidney panel- normal range
NE---- Boo Hiss! Carrier: must be bred to a clear.

Xena and I have had a wonderful trip through the past couple years.



After this:::: off to the next chapter!



Thanks for the support.
Thank you Xena!

Outwest,

Do not think Terry would mind, I've posted their ad in the Stud Issue of PV.

Photo used is movement shot from PCA.

Great shot of Xena in movement. Fantastic judge notes. Thank you for posting this NOLA. I have to talk my husband into going to the show next year. This looks like too much fun to miss. Good luck Farleysd, you must be so proud of your beautiful girl. I will also be cheering you on.

I watched the breed shows on the computer hooked up to my TV- worked great! Xena is a happy, happy girl. Her color is glorious. I loved how her tail wagged the whole time. She was so sparkly and happy go lucky. I bet she is a wonderful girl to have around. There were only two poodles of color and the other was a silver. That's impressive. There were some very nice poodles! London moves.

Such fun to watch it all.

Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the invitation Chagall's mom, Was great meeting you and (I'm so embarrassed,,, I forget your name! please forgive me!!!) It was nice to have a large cheering section. I believe that Xena had the largest cheering section outside of London and Allie!

The drive was easy, did not see any snow until I actually arrived in the city itself, and the streets were already clean as well as the sidewalk.

I did like the new idea of showing classes at the pier and groups at Madison Square Garden. Getting there was no problem at all, getting back had a slight challenge, but not too hard. We were not crowded, we did not need to worry about being pushed, shoved, and all the over dense crowd preventing people from moving from moving a foot. Plenty of room for the dogs, and the x-pens were easy and convenient. I thought it was good for all involved, the spectators, exhibitors, and epically for the dogs.


I apprecitate all the support!

Terry

Terry, although I do agree the two venue set up was great for the dogs, who, after all are the stars of the show, I disagree that it was great for the spectators. We arrived at the venue at 7:30 am for the breed judging, so we did get two seats in the one row of seating available. So many people were 3 & 4 rows deep, standing, and were craning their necks trying to get a view of the dogs. There were quite a few older or handicapped spectators that had a very hard time. I think that WKC will have to entertain the possibility of some bleacher type seating for the spectators next year - that seemed to be the general concensus around the buildings both days.

It was fun to see and photograph all of the poodles being groomed prior to the breed judging and chatting with the breeders/owners/handlers who, as always were generous enought to speak with everyone. Our seats allowed me to take tons of pictures of the ring action as well, which was great!

Hi Cavon:

I really appreciate what you are saying and I agree, I imagine that a club like Westminster and the piers in general would be able to locate some stadium style bleachers. It might be a good idea for some people to write to the Westminster this idea. hopefully they might want to accommodate this need. A concept for a bench show is for the spectators to enjoy the show.
