Last night I decided not to go to the Dog show today but then at the last moment I decided to go as Jake was feeling a bit left out with Red being here. I thought the afternoon would give me and Jake time together so he knows he's still number 1.
For those that show you would have cringed at the judges, one example.... a butch lass with a huge Rottweiller and another huge dog was getting dragged all over, and she was even kicking her dogs to walk straight, She got 2nd, the 1st place went to her mate with a Doberman which ran sideways and dragged the lass...
The mind really boggles... mind it was a novelty show not a proper showing event.. All in good fun...
Ayway Jake started by winning a 5th Rosette which had me grinning from ear to ear and covering Jake in mumsie kisses. Then he won a lovely yellow rosette and I was ecstatic...
I was so pleased as every class had the arena over crowed though have to admit it was a small arena but hey.. 3rd.. whoopie
But.... Jake wasn't finished.. He then won............a RED
rosette. oh gosh I had to hold back the tears I was so pleased and there was me happy with our white 5th placed rosette and now we were taking home a red one and two goodie bags.
Then as Jake had won a class he told me he wanted to stay for the last class which was for RBIS and BIS. Uually I go home but for Jake we stayed.
I was a bit pessimist and thought, we are here just to make the numbers up.
The RBIS rosette was given out and then there seemed a long long pause, I was watching Jake and Jake was watching me and suddenly there was the Judge in front of us.. Oh MY GOD... Jake won Best in Show.. I nearly started crying, Jake sensed he'd won and went crazy jumping up and down and got all excited.. I babbled like an idiot and grabbed Jake and literally smothered him in kisses. Jake knew he had done well and kissed me loads back..
He got two bags of Dog food a gorgeous rosette and.... a Medal, Jakes first medal which is now on display in the cabenet.
God I know I keep saying it but I LOVE
my boy. Here he is showing everything he won (I forgot to put the lovey white rosette in the photo oop's)
There was a photographer there and Jake is gonna appear on the website and seemingly Wagg want photo's as they were the main sponsors.
I AM SOOOOOO PROUD OF JAKE.. my heart is gonna burst.
