Jedi and I were in the ring at 8:30 AM both days. On Thursday I was really nervous -- and it showed. We got 4th place, coming home with a yellow ribbon. The following day we did much better. RK said it was our best performance yet! Jedi free stacked nicely and we gaited well. The judge really looked at Jedi too. There were some nice dogs in the ring with us, all professionally handled. I'm proud of our 3rd place ribbon.
Rotary Centennial Park. From the street it doesn't look like much, but there is a concrete path that winds into the woods making for a nice dog-friendly stroll. RK also found us a great place to eat. The Grillmaster of Perry has melt-in-your-mouth barbecued ribs for a decent price. It's a nice little mom and pop place that gladly welcomes dogs at the picnic tables out front. They'll even provide you with a bowl of water.
Perry was a great experience and we can't wait to do it again next year! Want to join us? -- K
