Not sure if it's ok to post this here as it was only a local dog show, for fun you know not a big proper dog show lol.

Anyway I'm in the south of Ireland visiting my mum and other family, we always go to the Tinahely show in Wicklow this time of year and I brought the dogs with me. We decided to enter the dogs in the dog show just for fun and my wee Spice came 1st in the toy breed class! She got a red ribbon, a bag of dog food and 12 euro lol.
I was delighted as we were up against a few beautiful dogs, I thought my main competition were two lovely Dauschunds and two beautiful Poms.
The judge loved Spice, he said she moves beautifully. Right enough she does kind of prance like a little deer, never thought of it before but when he said it it made me think she does move really gracefully.
She may not be totally to standard but she's def got the personality and movements required for showing. She was so confident, even the way she stands is really square, she looks great!

Anyway here's some pics....

Spice with her ribbon, and tongue out as usual lol not much of a show dog!

Me and Spice waiting for our class

Dunno if u can make out but im in the middle with Spice in best of show ring, we didn't win that one though!

Me Spice and my nanny after winning


Wee Sugar was entered too and my cousin showed her for me but unfortunately due to her nerves she hadn't a chance, I could tell straight away that the judge wasn't fussed on her as she didn't like him touching her and wouldn't open her mouth so he could see her teeth! She will always be a winner to me though :)

Ps during our day at the show I had 4 different ppl ask if my chis were for sale, 2 of them insisting I sell them to them?! Eh no way!!!!

And had loads of ppl coming up to pet them and compliment them, also some that just lifted them without asking, really quick before I cud even notice they were there! I was so worried incase Sugar freaked at any of them but thank God she didn't. I was also very wary of them being snatched too after all the ppl looking me to sell them.
It was mad, like they had never seen a chi before!

Nevermind Dog Shows lassie, you oughta get yourself into some People Shows, you are the epitomy of the sweetest Irish Belle. Don't they have "Show Girl" awards over there?

I had to laugh .... so many getting around in short or no sleeves with that cold grey Irish mist just hanging in mostly grey skies with an occasional peep of blue sneaking through .... where I live, we would've been in our thermal underwear, then 5 layers topped off with our goosedown jackets, make no mistake!

Oh, and congrats, what a lovely memory making day to have shared with your dear 'ol Gran :)

Awwwww thank u so much, that's so nice! Your very kind :)

Lol that was actually relatively good weather for us, in the sense it didn't rain and it was actually warm enough despite the grey clouds! We haven't had much of a summer here at all so days like that are good to us :)

Thank u, yes it was lovely with my nanny there, she loved the dogs and when the crowds were too much for the chis she happily offered them her lap as she was in the wheel chair! She had a picture took with them for the local paper, she was besotted with them!
