We went to the dog show that’s in town over the weekend to meet a couple people and catch up with others that I haven’t seen in a long time. We had a great time! This was the first ‘true’ dog show that I have taken Theron to. He has been to lure coursing, agility, and herding and he wanted to know what type of racing or jumping the dogs were going to do 😉 He had fun looking at all the different breeds of dogs and wanted to know what each one was. He made a lot of new friends.
This adorable Cardigan puppy is Rio. Theron was very popular with his baggy full of cheese crackers 🙂
This is JR, a super outgoing Papillon that was getting ready for the Junior’s ring.
I have always liked Clumber Spaniels and
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
This girl is a Husky named Rose. The two of them hit it off immediately and were wrestling in the aisleway.
Such a pretty girl with beautiful blue eyes.
These pretty girls are Rhodesian Ridgebacks – Zuri and Roxy. He really liked the ridges on their backs.
Caitlynn is an old friend that he hasn’t seen in awhile. She is such a sweetie.
We got new leashes for all of the dogs and Theron picked out a new toy for Darby. They played fetch for a long time when we got home. Happy boys!
I went to the race meets this weekend and had a great time. SORCA (Southern Oregon Racing and Coursing Association) is a small club trying to get established and everyone is so nice. I took pictures both days and enjoyed visiting with people I haven’t seen in awhile. It was a little sad that Paisley couldn’t participate – she loves to run – but it isn’t safe for her to race after her accident.
I love seeing the hounds run!
As you can see they certainly enjoy it. These beautiful dogs are Salukis and came all the way from Redding, CA.
The dogs ranged in size from these little Italian Greyhounds…
all the way up to these guys.
They thundered down the field. It was very impressive watching them – they are Scottish Deerhounds.
This little girl is a Rhodesian Ridgeback and it was her first time running in competition. She was a little confused and was looking for her mommy.
She had it figured out by the second day.
This group of Whippets was a lot of fun to watch – they were very evenly matched and really pushed themselves.
The Silken Windhounds were my favorite to watch. They are about the size of a whippet and were created using the whippet, borzoi, and sheltie! Quite the combination.
You can really see the sheltie influence in this little girl’s face.
The weather was beautiful and fun was had by all – not a bad weekend!
