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
