Braebrook had a very successful three days of showing this past weekend at the Victoria City Kennel Club show. Braebrook's Revolution "Ryan" was winners every day and best of breed over the special and made the cut in the working group on the last day. She is really doing well as a show dog and went from being not sure if it was her thing to thinking it's pretty darn awesome to have everyone love up on her and give her lots of treats. She needs just three more points to complete her championship.
Ella won two of her juniors classes with Vinnie (Am/Can Ch Stoney's There's No Crying in Baseball). She has only just started showing in juniors having made only a few appearances since she was a peewee and she has been loving it. I can't believe she's only eight years old sometimes, I was a very proud Momma.
I recently came across this article and shared it on the Braebrook Facebook page but I'd like to share it here too as I thought it was very good and so true.
I love that dog shows are such a family friendly sport. Kids are welcomed and encouraged and become fast friends (Ella is always excited to go to shows or field trials to meet up with her friends) and all of it gets to be done with man's best friend, you can't beat that. I'm already looking forward to the next one.
