My mum took some lovely videos of Gracie at the show yesterday but unfortunately i cant upload them as youtube is blocked at work But i got some stills i thought i'd post as she went SO well!!! She hadn't been shown for a couple of months so she was rather bouncy! But she won her class, got Best of Breed and then Toy Group 1!!! Sadly she didnt get anything in BIS, i think we were a bit small and round for the judge as he went for a Husky BIS and Irish Setter RBIS and barely noticed Gracie on the end of the line... But, still a nice result after a fairly long break, against some nice dogs!!
This was in the breed class judging.
Everyone going around (Gracie infront):

And some fun beach ones!! We were late leaving so didnt have time to go to the proper beach, but this stony beachy thing was enarby so we stopped here to let them have a run!
More to come!
Waiting to be washed off
And wrapped up for the drive home!
All done! lol
Congratulations Jess and Gracie, she really did look eager to strut her stuff!!
The beach pictures look fabulous too, it's lovely to see a 'Show' dog enjoying a normal life, clambering over the rocks and getting very dirty. No wonder she's a happy little camper.

Well done Jess and Miss Gracie, I love your photos and the contrast between the show dog and the mucky beach bum - great

We should all try to be as good a person as our Dogs think we are (anon)
She was certainly strutting, i could barely keep up with her
And im sure you guys know Gracie well enough by now - She cant possibly stay clean for more than a few hours after a bath!!!
Great job! She is such a little tom boy. How do you
keep that mud washed off of her all the time I
think she loves to run in the mud. She is so beautiful!

What great pics of her movement!
Congrats on the win!!!!
I cannot believe she loves the mud so much! Can't imagine any dog here...aside from Lefty MAYBE....that would do anything like that!
Great pics! Your dogs live such a nice well balanced life! My pugs love the mud too, I think most dogs like it if they're exposed to that sort of thing regularly.
