We're looking better. Just a bit more work to do on him!
There is a liver cake recipe in my handling book , I am going to make some soonI used some fake meat stuff that i don't like to use. I am going to boil some chicken in the morning for him but when I get downtown again, I am going to get some liver and boil that.
Great, I was not sure of all that when I first went in the ring, and I did forget to put the lead on before the spray up lol, I am glad you had someone who could help you at a show! you have the right attitude about just get in there and have fun! I was SOOOOO nervous at my first show that I thought I would be shaking out of my shoes, then we got in the ring and lol, everything happen so fast that I was like You mean thats it! LOL!!! Good luck and you are doing a great job!P4P, We learned about putting the lead on first by a person who showed at a show we attended just for learning. The reason it is not on properly is because Billy was very upset with the choke tightening up on his neck. It took us a while to figure out what motivated him to run properly and look happy so that was our compromise in the meantime. It will be put on before the his spray up (we are showing AKC) and it will be on the right side behind his ear where it should be.
We're going to go with what we have and really enjoy our day and make it a bit fat fun time for Billy so that he will enjoy it. I'm just excited to be getting him and myself into the show ring. Whether he does anything or not doesn't matter because I am so very proud of him.
ahahahaha....Dianne just told me there is something like 20 + dogs entered in both of the shows I signed up for!!!!! YIPES! When I checked last years stats, there were only a handful in each. OMG! We may be overwhelmed. Now, I just hope Billy behaves himself and goes around the ring properly and doesn't get too nervous with all the distraction.
Or worse, you get nervous and forget you're chewing it, it falls out into Billy's hair, judge goes to feel him over... oh yeah that could go over well. Lol that's what I'd worry about, knowing my luck it's exactly how it would go down too.LOL I'll bet you were a bit surprised to get a smack in the back of the head. LOL
I love gum and have been chewing it since I was a kid. But, I wouldn't chew it in the ring even if I could. Chewing can be unattractive and it just seems like an unprofessional thing to do. I'll stick with the mint.
