Ruby and I participated in Victoria City Kennel Club’s conformation show on August 11th and 12th, 2018, at the Saanich Fairgrounds. In spite of being utterly ‘out of coat’ she took Best of Breed, over three other bitches.
I brought her back into the show ring this spring, after a year and a half hiatus, to prepare us for the 2018 Canadian National Specialty in Edmonton. She was well received, winning four Best of Opposites in four shows and Select Female at the Specialty.
We are now going to re-focus on agility, obedience and rally fun. I may decide to bring her back into the conformation ring one day, but for now, we’re ‘hanging up our skates’.
I am very grateful to all the people who have treated us with kindness and helped Ruby and I along the way. I’ve learned a lot.
