Hello. I have a beautiful 6 month old black standard female. I fall more and more in love with her each day. We are hoping to hit the show ring in 2010 but this will be the first dog show experience for both of us. So if there are any show people out there, I can use any and all advice(especially on grooming). She has been through her puppy class and we start conformation classes in January. I am so happy to have found this forum and hope to make good friends. Anyone else in Hawaii??
