In only her fourth dog show, Elettra earned her Champion title on Thursday and then followed it up with a Best-of-Breed on Saturday and a Select on Sunday. It’s hard to believe that the tough little huntress I’ve trained and hunted with for the past year is a show dog, but that she is.
It was an enjoyable weekend that came and went all too quickly but it was fun while it lasted. We had a nice barbecue with friends and opened our back yard to the dogs they were showing, mostly German Wirehairs, to give them some time to run and stretch their legs a bit. Elettra renewed acquaintances with our guys and then it was back to show business.
Overall, Elettra did well and the show champion is back to bird dog boot camp for a bit, then homeward bound. Having said that, apologies in advance to Team Laura for the work that was put into grooming her these past couple of months, because it won’t take many training sessions to undo.
