Rosie in Nashville.

We had an interesting weekend at the Tri-Star KC show in Nashville.  Rosie showed well on Saturday until some idiot began playing with the microphone when we were in the ring for WB.  On the first go around the speaker came on and started a very loud buzzing and clicking noise. It was a total meltdown for all the girls.   Most judges just stopped, but not ours.  Rosie never recovered so no points for her.  This was the second loudspeaker incident for her, so I was very worried.  I almost pulled her on Sunday, but decided she needed to get back in the ring.   So my goal for Sunday was to make it as fun as possible.  We showed up with my pockets stuffed with 3 different kinds of bait and squeaky toys.  We went in the ring with some apprehension.  When I set Rosie on the table, I told Judge Linda Moore that she had a bad experience with the microphone the day before.  She was fantastic with Rosie and really gave her a chance to show and have fun.  Rosie was the only bred-by so, of course, she won her class.  When we went back in for WB, she did better and lo and behold, she won!  By the time BOB was over, Rosie was giving ears and wagging her tail in the ring.  That's more important to me than the point!

We've had the same loud speaker experience. Young dogs have no idea of the source of the sounds -- it comes from above. Pretty scary! Hurray for the point. They all count!

Congrats! Bummer about the loudspeaker, but glad she had a very positive experience next time.
