Default A small and furry announcement....;)

Well it has been a looooooooong weekend in our house...
Many of you responded to my thread about trying to talk my fiance into another chi, and Im sure I combined almost all of your suggestions over the last few days, and SUCCESS!!!!!!

After being here on the forum for a few months Ive started to realize how much fun it would be to show. Ive attended area shows in the past and enjoyed them, and like all of us here I just love to spend time with my dogs. Showing seems like a great way to have fun with your dog (anxious to hear how flippedstars first show with Bryco went this weekend!)....so, Ive been looking for a pup who I could get into a little showing with. He doesnt need to be destined to be some major grand champion, whatever success we have would just be an added bonus.

So, introducing "Leo"-his name with the breeder, which I kind of like, but we are still undecided, so name suggestions are welcome also!




Heres what the breeder has told me in regards to his conformation-
So, far he has a very nice body, straight line,
perfect tail set, small nose, nice head, perfect ears.

They are involved in showing, and Leo's sire is an AKC Champion and I have access to both the sire and dam's pedigrees (which frankly I dont know enough about the whole showing deal yet for those to mean a whole lot to me)

Id love your feedback on him! I havent made a deposit yet, we still have a few details to work out, Ive asked if I can purchase him with limited registration for now, then see where we are with our handling etc, and see how he is developing and then purchase full AKC rights at that stage when I know Ill be able to show him. I havent heard back on that yet, does it make sense, or is it just a totally backwards thing to do? It is almost double to buy him with full registration, so I would just like to be sure that we can actually show together before I make that kind of investment in his paperwork which otherwise is totally unnecessary (I have NO plans of breeding).

Thanks for looking, and Id appreciate any feedback as this whole showing thing is totally new to me

He looks adorable, I'd go for him. I also like your attitude towards Showing as I have the same view. I am not bothered if I never qualify for Crufts etc, all I want to do is have fun, if I got focused on qualifying I reckon for me I'd get too serious and loose the fun factor.

The name Leo was what Jake was originally called but for me I didn't like it. Jake just wasn't a Leo. However if your boy is as brave as a lion it would be a great name.

Can the breeder send u a picture of him stacked??? How old is he??

He looks nice from the pic, can you get pics of his parents also. One thing I would think about is marking or shows they have to be intact so obviously mark their territory (this is one of the reasons I gotta girl)
Also find your local ring craft class we started last week it's daunting I still dunno whether I'll show lotus but it does nit hurt to get some practice

Thank you! I like Theo or Teddy for him also, but we cant agree. Exactly, I just want to have some fun with my dog and show him off a little, not focus on winning it all.

Ah, he is precious! I'm so jealous - I do plan on getting a show pup eventually but not yet. Anyway, I think he looks pretty good from what I can tell of the pics. I like his name.

I also agree with Sarah. I thought I could handle an intact male until Marley started marking all over the house & got Maxie into marking (which he never did before!). I thought I'd be able to train him out of it & it didn't happen. So for me, when I look for a show pup it WILL be female.

But as for looks he looks nice. Congrats on getting the hubs to agree - whoo hoo!!!

Sarah- Thank you, it completely slipped my mind to show pics of his parents as well.

Heres the dam, who I would very much like to steal




And his sire
