We went to a dog show yesterday to compete with our Dobermann puppy.
He lost to a 3 month old to the day puppy that he shared a grandfather with, but knocked the puppy out of the puppy stakes, and ended up placing 8th out of 40+. It was his second show and he is doing really well. He is my first show dog, so it is a huge learning curve.
Anyway, I managed to get some poodle pictures while I wasn't busy showing, sleeping and eating lol

Poor Saffy had a really hard time allowing the nice lady to put the super cute toy on her back. But our obedience work persevered and she very nicely accepted the toy on her back, but couldn't bring herself to say hi lol

Ahh--the indignity of it all! Congratulations on your 2nd show experience. I'm looking forward to taking the plunge one of these days. It is a learning curve, I am sure. And with each show it will get somewhat easier I would think.

Thanks for the poodle pics. I love all three sizes! What's the weather like there?

I wonder if that woman knows that type of behavior in dogs is dominance talk and your dog might be uncomfortable with that. Such a good boy to sit there and do nothing though.

Love the MINIS!

Probably not lol, but it made a cute photo.
Saffy is generally pretty intolerant of other dogs, as she had literally no socialisation as a puppy. As we've only had her for a year, I've worked really hard to fix those issues. She used to absolutely lose control at the sight of another dog, but now she is generally pretty good, and now occasionally snaps back if a dog runs at her for a first or second meeting, which if fair enough too lol
