Kyu was entered in his breed specialty this weekend. He did conformation on Saturday (in between me judging rally) and absolutely rocked the house. He took Best Junior Dog (out of 2 entrants the other being the dog who beat him in their class at the specialty last year). Then he took Winners Dog out of 3 dogs. Finally, he took Best Winners! I never had expected that!

He didn't do as well today in the straight racing. His first race was mostly good though he got a bit confused/worried at the end. His second race was a no go. I think, with a bit more confidence, he'll be just fine. smile

His fancy rosette:

That is so good. I know you haven't done Conformation before, so I am proud of you for giving a go. You will learn more as you go along, if you want to continue. He is a pretty boy. Congratulations.

It was only my third time in the conformation ring! Ha ha. I am such a newb. I was so happy it's a laid-back group and they told me I needed to hang around and when I was supposed to go back in. I had no idea what we'd won until later.

Then I went back in for the Versatility dogs part with someone else's dog. It was great until the judge told me to "do a triangle" and I had a brief moment of panic when I realized I hadn't watched anyone else to know exactly what she meant! Fortunately, I assisted a class in conformation 8+ years ago and I remembered what it meant!

I definitely plan on doing more conformation with him simply because I can. smile

Thanks, all!
