Show Stoppers


In 2012 for the first time ever I will be entering one of my own dogs in an AKC conformation ring. I have attended and worked shows and even been a handler a few times and can honestly say I am hooked. I have always enjoyed quality time with my dogs so why not give it a try and have some fun. 

I have decided to start this blog because I plan to grow and flourish in the conformation ring with both my own German Shepherd Dog's and Mini Dachshund. I am excited to be part of this amazing yet political world to both meet and be with awe-inspiring people.

We are having great fun and earning lots of ribbons in our new showing adventures. Butters has now joined Prairie and her dam Phoebe in field trials and barn hunts. Zulee is enjoying the ring and our newest addition Sweetness is a blast to have with us in conformation, field trials and barn hunts.

This is my best friend Nicki Ross...she has a heck of a story and I am going to share it

My dear friend and I have been friends for many years now, she is a HUGE dog lover and has this glow about her when it comes to animals.

Last month Nicki attended the Centre Hall dog show with myself, Butters and Zulee. Nicki found herself in awe and caught what we all know as "the dog show bug"

That follo...

Torah has always been a good girl never high impact in anything but she does what u ask always... Today upon picking up Voodoo from her home to ...

Exhaustion and worry is still in high gear, on a positive note my crate came yesterday and it was in fact the pink one. YAY to eBay sales person bobopets for being awesome and helpful.

My 6 ft lead should be here on time and then all the things ordered will have arrived. My outfits I ordered to handle my mentors dog have arrived and I look like a whale in them but HEY why not?!

The show is soon approaching and now the nerves are going some. I feel the stress levels starting to raise all though I shouldn’t. …Or should I …..O.o.

It is a scary thought that people go through this feeling ALL the time when you are active in showing dogs. I picture all of these people stressed to the max with their dogs in tow. I have attended many shows now and can say, not one seems as stressed as I am starting to...
