Time to Show yoda off again

This is my lovely baby with his latest achievement.
We were at the Kent County Association Open Show this weekend just gone. It was a cold and miserable day, but the amount of people there with their precious dogs was amazing. This is the first Open show i have been too and i'm not sure what i expected, but it was lovely to see all the different breeds. And what a fuss people were making! They were primping and preening their dogs on the tables, some has bows in their hair,, others were putting whitening powder in their coats. And then there was me, just sitting there nervous as anything wishing the time away.
We got there just after 9 am and collected the guide book. Looked up what ring we would be in and settled by the side to wait. We saw and chatted to a few people we knew, wishing each other good luck in the various classes our dogs were registered, and by the time we were due to go in for our class i'd been for a wee at least 6 times. I don't get butterflies or need the loo when i'm nervous i only react when its a scared nervous then i get clammy. But this was silly. I wasn't drinking that much and yet i had to go.
Anyway, The Junior class came up and i entered the ring with my friend who had Yoda's sister. we tried to have some other dogs in between them as they normally want to play but we didn't manage it. So Yoda went first and did his moves and his his sister Shelby went second. I wasn't expecting much as Yoda was pulling on the lead and he wasn't holding his head up all the time.
When we lined up at the end and i was handed 2nd place for him i was so shocked i looked at the judge as if to say are you sure. Everyone else went off and i was standing next to the 1st place winner waiting to say thanks to the judge still in amazement.
I'm so proud of my baby. His sister was given reserve place, and his mum in her class was also given reserve place. So in the end we all went home with something.
now we practise harder with the training, Hope his last 2 teeth come out before the next show in march so that he can get the same if not better placing.

Until my next proud moment of his achievements
