And no I'm not talking about bunny ears, Guppy :)
When I was over at a friend's house for ring practice last week, Steve's wife looked at Ash and said that I should start trimming in his ears! Now I know Ash has a plush coat, but he certainly isn't a fluff. I don't know why I should trim his ears if he doesn't resemble a fluff in any other way. She said something about perhaps he has a fluff gene in him and that the judges would recognize that by seeing his ears. So without seeing him up close I'm attching some clickable pics and perhaps I can get your opinions. And if I do need to trim in there, what scissors are recommended? I think his are alittle small compared to alot of other cardis I've seen, so perhaps trimming that hair back would make his ears seem bigger?
In other news, I guess I really am hooked into dog shows, it's been almost a month since Grass Valley and I think I'm having withdrawl! Dreaming about them, constantly checking Info dog for win results and upcoming shows. I think we will enter in the Sacramento/ Dixon show that's in late October. The weather should be nice then and it looks like there's been a good show of cardigan's in the past. Did you go last year Carolyn? How was it?
Well yesterday I had my first exam and I did fairly well on it, and I passed my math exam that I had to pass with 95% or better in order to continue on the program- so I can relax about that now.
Tomarrow is the one-year anniversary of my mom's death. I plan on taking a nice long walk on the beach with my furkids. God, I miss her. But I know she's still with me in many subtle ways.
