Alexis is still sticking to all of her new skills without waiver, which makes me so proud. I know she is so tempted to make dramatic movements in the ring to draw attention to herself – Which YES! She has witnessed so many others do – But – We keep reminding her the judge is supposed to note the dog, not the person handling the dog.
I know, I know, I should teach her about the reality of dog shows, right? Well, those are the actual RULES of Junior Showmanship so I am sticking to it. And clearly it paid off today because she got a placement, It was 4th place, but a placement none the less! SO PROUD!
