Sac Town Take 2



I'm home finally and it's late but I thought I'd do a quick post on todays results. I did end up having Steve show Ash for me and he did no better than yesterday as far as wins go, but he did behave better. Granted both days were 3 point majors in dogs and so there was some good competition. One of Sharon's dogs took WD and is now a finished champion, and Bryer took BOB. It's late and so that's all I can remember for now. Some general thoughts for now; I need to make time to practice more with Ash so that I don't feel rusty and get all nervous. I'm wondering if I should go to Napa in two weeks? We are entered but the entry tally is posted and it looks like there will only be 2 dogs- Ash and ??, Hopefully not one of the new champs. Not sure how that works if there's only one male? Perhaps we will wait the 9 - 12 months out and not show again until after he's a year. I'm hoping his coat will be more relaxed by then. Anyway too many thoughts at too late of an hour, I'm going for some zzzz's.

When you're the only dog, you don't get points for WD. It does sometimes mean though that you have a better chance of the judge "giving" you best of winners so that you can share the bitch points. If your dog is decent, that often happens. And your dog is decent. :-)

Without looking I think the count is 2 - 4 (2 -1). So that would be 5 cardis in for breed which mean BW would be 2 points, I think.
Regardless I probably will go to Napa, as Louise says shows are good ring practice AND maybe I can do alittle tating while I'm there! :)

If you go BOW, you get the bitch points (if they are more than the dog points). Doesn't matter how many are in the breed ring...

If you go BOS you would get the points for the males defeated. IE you'd add the male specials into the dog count. Now if you went BOS/BOW you'd still only get whichever was more - dog or bitch.

If you go BOB you add all the specials into your sex points. Now if you did that (BOW would be automatic) and the WB was BOS over the special that would also increase her possible points (4 to 5 bitches) and make your possible count 5 from dogs (if the other showed up).

Not sure that was clear but basically the specials only count if you beat them :)

Clear as mud! But if I read a few more times it will begin to make more sense. :) Oh and I meant wine TASTING not tating earlier.

go to napa... it's a nice show :) I never entered but I went one year... it's very pretty :) Being in the ring is the best experience.... in my opinion anyway ;-)

Yup since this is your first dog I think you should go to every show you can. :o) You will learn a little more each time! And even if it's just for one or two points, I always like to say that "well my dog needs those too".
