Well; we had a blast at Premier.
Our collars (from my company First Dog Custom Leather) were a hit; both for the Greyhound folks and the Rat Terrier competitors.
Jiggs wasn't feeling well; so unfortunately he wasn't able to try out the Terrier racing; nor did I show him in the Conformation class. Misty scored an 82 in her Rally Obedience class; so has her first leg towards her title; and placed 2nd in the Best of Winners class to a very nice male from 3 Bears Farm.
We had an awesome time at Premier; meeting some great people; both from the Central Asian Shepherd world and from the Rat Terrier world. We had wonderful food, shared good stories and dog talk and . . . I acquired our new female; CH HDK's No Boundaries aka Kara! <click on her name to hear her story! Kara is related in a small way to Misty; and brings a different sire-line to our kennel; and a different size; she is either a small standard or a large mini (hard to measure; may have to get a wicket). I will breed her to select males (including Jiggs) in the future. Best of all; she arrived health tested and championed; by her owners Barbie Trammell of Burway Stars Rat Terriers and Rebekah Anthony of Hurricane Deck Kennels.
Here are some photos from Premier; we stayed at a cottage; so some pics are from there and the other pictures are from the Rat Terrier specialty (with a few stray photos inserted).
