Hi everybody, This is not pug stuff, but that is what General Banter is. HA! Seven months ago, (for those who didn't know this) I was given the chance to follow a dream I have had since I was a child. Never thought this would come to pass. I got my first show dog. He is a Jap. Chin. His name is SenHi-Moonlight Sonata (call name Ludwig). We have been working very hard to prepare for our first show. That day came yesterday, at the Japanese Chin Specialty show, at Purina Farms, Gray Summit, Mo. We were accompanied by two of the most awesome angels God could send to watch over us, My breeder, and friend Carol Bridgeman, and my friend Julie Grawe. We intered the 10am Sweepstakes showed to judge Lisa White, for 6-9mo. class and took SECOND PLACE. We also intered the Regional show to judge Dr. Gail Forsythe, for 6-9mo. class, and ARE YOU READY???? We took FIRST PLACE!!! I almost P----------d My, sorry, you get the picture. LOL! What a way to start showing. Both judges as we left the ring with our winning ribbon remarked how they loved my puppy. As will as many other people outside the ring. Some saying, "We were wondering who the new kids were". Ludwig showed wonderful. Did everything perfect. Pictures with the judge for 1st place are ordered. When they come in I WILL be posting.
