So Delilah came out this weekend and though we didn't win, she looked pretty good sprayed up. Laurel said that she is definitely in enough hair to be competitive and that it is time to get her out and show her on a regular basis.

On Saturday I showed her myself and we came in dead last in a 6-7 bitch Open class. :) General consensus among everyone was that Delilah should finish easily as long as I'm not at the end of the lead. On Sunday my friend Jim Johnson showed her and they came in like 4th. He likes her and he will be showing her for me until Laurel has an opening in her client list.

Note.....It is possible to shave too far up above the elbow. Ugh! I thought to make Delilah look a bit leggier, but when you get up too high, it makes the leg looked curved. Oh well..... that should grow back in quickly.

Interesting thing about this show. There were 4 Brown Standard bitches and 1 Silver Beige Standard Boy being shown. Pretty unusual to see that much Brown in the ring at one time.

You both looked great. I know you were proud of her. How unusual to see that many browns.

I was at a very small show over the weekend, 428 dogs entered. The only 2 Standard bitches entered were Red. The Special who won Best of Variety was Black.

She looks great! I love the picture of her with her toy.. that is just way freakin cute.

In the first picture, is she standing with her feet too closely together? I don't have much of an eye for stacking dogs.

Well, judging from all three photos..she looks as though she is very narrow in the chest. I'm impressed that you caught on to the legs being close together for not having shown before. So, if you were to stack a dog like this...you would want to make sure that when stacked the legs were as far apart as possible and still look straight. You should consider taking Vegas in the ring sometime for fun...maybe for UKC since his coat is short but I think you'd enjoy it.

Oh man, Vegas would be so bouncy, rofl! I've never thought about taking him in the ring.. though I'd have to do it within the next two months, because I'm getting him fixed at the end of july/beginning of august.

Ha Ha Yeah well I'll have to tell you sometime about my first "In the ring stories"! There is a UKC show coming up end of this month-same place. You should find out if his parent's were UKC registered-just makes it easier if he's not. Let me know..it would be fun and most of the people from Friday will be there=)

I would not fault Delilah on being overly narrow. Remember the standard says:

Chest deep and moderately wide with well sprung ribs.

She is certainly not one of those bitches where as we say, "The legs come out of the same hole." In picture #1, she just happened to step too closely into a self stack (something to be careful about if you free stack your dog). Picture #3 is better, but could be a bit wider still. Note though in the second picture the danger of hand stacking the front too wide. You will end up making the dog look splay legged.

i don't think she is too narrow. i think she may be a liitle "elbows out" a little which makes her feet look too close together. if you correct this when you stack her it shouldn't be noticeable. her groom looks fantastic. all of us need to remember there are no perfect dogs, we just have to do our best to present them. very nice looking bitch, cbrand!

She looks so great cbrand won at all the browns ! I might have some info for you on this brown stud I saw at enzo's last show he was pretty darn dark in color his movement was good.

I have some video too he was a lottle naughty so I think he was barely 2 years old.

Ah yes

That is my lovely lower half (thank you NOT for posting the pic and I will be dieting)and my very bad in-full-sulk red brat. She didn't waaaaaaaaaaaant to be there and did she ever show it.

Kay P Peiser took her after the show and worked her. With Kay she tosses her head back, moves like she's supposed to, plays and free stacks - Then tries to follow Kay home...

Fickle hearted little witch! I'm the one who lets her sleep on my head! :eek:hwell:

When I started showing I had heard how sometimes handlers "just get put up", but from what I have experienced, handlers get put up because they ARE that amazing when working with their animals. Skills! One day I want to be so good!

Tab

PS The special was Kay's bitch, "Luna" - she's Blue, I believe.

The "Bitty B"

That is the Baroness Pontalba du Nola's Caniche Rouge. I call her Bee or Bitty B short for Baroness.

She's just over 4 months - in full out Puppy Uglies, but still looking pretty good despite it and she is full out BAAAAAAAAADDD! She and Antoinette are half sisters.

It was her first show visit and she didn't seem to be intimidated at all. Her only issue was being left in that crate, and boy did she let the entire set-up know it!

Glad you cleared up what "Bitty B" stood for! ; ) (Thought it might be opposite of Little :angel:) She has the face of an angel!
