I LOVE that picture!!! What a priceless moment in time!! I am hoping to see that gorgeous boy at WKC 2013 and maybe I will be lucky enough to capture a similar shot!!!
Angelsmommy and Indiana - the best handlers really do make it look WAY easier than it really is!! The action itself is not hard, but keeping it all look smooth and natural and like you are not pulling the dog is really an art!!
The biggest compliment that I have had while handling a dog was from someone that I didn't even know. I came out of the ring with the dog I showed and a woman stopped me and said, "The two of you made such a pretty picture, working as a team, it looked like you were both floating around the ring.'
I was so astounded! I am not a pro handler by any stretch of the imagination and only help people out when they ask me to - unless I am showing my own boy, then we are both all business!! LOL!!
