THE Show 2009 Canadian Toller National Specialty
Sunday brought the Big show and Big nerves awaiting our ring time. The piping in always puts a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. This time I took Isabella with me. I wanted some special time just she and I. Isabella’s special time with me was to continue.
My nervousness kept growing as the puppy dog classes flew by. The buzz hit the grooming room and some were caught by surprise as their class was upon them before anticipated. Good God! I thought, we’ll be done my lunch time. Then came the Bred By and Open dog class, and the dogs were being moved multiple times and it became apparent this judge was going to be thorough, very thorough.
