|Isn't Norma Smith's logo adorable?|
I entered, thinking I would have plenty of time to process the information. But God has a sense of humor. The day I put the check in the mail I got the email about Trooper. I actually went to the mailbox and pulled the entry form before the mailman showed up. Then I paced for three days. I filled the entry out again, registering for a working spot with "a new puppy, name to be determined."
Now I'm pacing back and forth waiting for RK to get off work so we can head to Ft. Myers. She estimates a 7 hour drive (including potty breaks). Ugh.
The seminar will cover many things that I need help with, including:
- Moving the dog correctly
- Stacking properly
- Breed-specific presentation and
- Ring procedures
I'm hoping to come back full of knowledge and a bit more confidence. If all goes well, Trooper's first show will be late September -- as in six weeks from now. Great, now I'm even more nervous.
I'll tell you all about the seminar when I get back. Think happy thoughts! -- K
