I haven’t been to a dog show as a competitor since October 2014 due to my recent crazy work travel schedule. I’d like to work on Brownie’s championship so I entered him and Libby in the upcoming Pioneer Valley Kennel Club and Cheshire Kennel Club shows on August 1 and 2, respectively. Several of my basset friends are also entering these shows so I’m hoping for a fun weekend.
Then I really took the plunge and entered the two adults plus puppies Dante and Beatrice at the Pilgrim Basset Hound Club specialty show on August 14 at the Royal Plaza Trade Center in Marlborough. That should be an amusing evening. The puppies have not yet figure out how to walk straight on a leash so my main goal will be remaining upright all evening.
By the way, I finally gave the puppies from the Libby x Douglas litter their final AKC registration names. The four kids are now known officially as:
- Spectrum Topsfield Vision Dante’s Beatrice (Beatrice)
- Spectrum Topsfield Vision Dante’s Paradiso (Dante)
- Spectrum Topsfield Vision Dante’s Purgatorio
- Spectrum Topsfield Vision Dante’s Inferno
Beatrice & Dante live with me while the other two boys live with Sue Frischmann at Topsfield Kennel.
