Our dogs in the ring!
Just like owning a Chessie, I didn't see myself dressing up and prancing my dog aound a show ring. As far as I knew it was just a beauty pagent for dogs. I was once again wrong, it is very addicting whether or not you win! The dogs love it! The show ring is an event that gives you a good prospective of how close your dog is to it's standard, and we all should be breeding to that set standard! It gives me a good idea in what to look for in potential stud dogs for my girls. It lets me know their flaws and weakness, as well as their high points.

Emery did great showing in open against some great competitors. Emery took Open 2! Very proud of her.
Best of Breed specialty BP. Group 3 specialty BP This was Em's first show and she did great, winning over some great puppies. She was 4 months old.
Emery's first time back in the ring since the puppy show. She did great she was 1st in Puppy 9-12. But that was all the love that day.
Waiting to be judged.
practicing before we go in.
She leaned back here, though I did need to move my hand forward more.
