Syney in the Big Ring

Syd was entered as a special for the first time this weekend. I was *so* proud of my girl, she behaved, and was not stressed, and she showed really well. Saturday she went BOS, and she looked good. She was not worried at all about the dogs around her, especially the WD who was very close behind her.


Sunday, she went Best of Breed, and I was thrilled. At one point, I had to laugh because Don was feeding the WD, and Syd perked up and could not believe Don was feeding that dog HER treats!



Syd took a nice nap before the group, and then in her first appearance in the Group ring, she was pulled in the cut. I thought she showed so well, without any worries about the Aussie behind her, and she decided she loved the Pem in front of her, so she was very happy.



All in all, a nice weekend for Syd. These were local-ish shows so she could spend the night at home and just do a day trip to the shows, and had a very nice showing in the ring. It was great experience for her, and I am so happy that she seemed to have fun, too!

Congrats on the breed win! I really wish Galaxy would hurry up and grow up *G*

Look at these pics after seeing the Josie pic, Syd has her mamas head! Her body reminds me of Jake- but I've not seen a stacked pic of Josie.

Yeah Sydney. She is a lovely girl and you did a wonderful job with her and helping her through her fears.
