We made it down to the West Palm Show, and would like to thank everyone that meet Angus. He is normally a very quite, well mannered puppy. He must have started his teenager antics as soon as he got out of the car and they have yet to stop except when he is sleeping.
He took well to the ride over, slept and snored the whole 4 hours. Once we unloaded and went into the building the smell were just different. He must have thought that he was in puppy playland. We were the only one entered in our group so were received Best of Breed and First Place. We were then put up as a varity group (4 in total) and won forth. I was so excited to get a ribbon and that he was having fun (I think our inexperience did cost us in varity but we had fun).
The best part was after the show we went to see my 18month old nephew for the first time. Angus was a winner all the way around, he was so gentle and let cole pull on his ears and sit in the spaces of his legs. This is truely why I love the breed. I brought him into strange places, new people and dogs and he is awsome.
Saturday morning we stopped back at the show for the vendors and to watch and he was still in puppy mode with everyone asking to pet him. So he had lots of love and I purchased him a bully stick for the ride home (time to clean the leather in expedition - drool everywhere).
Thanks for letting be brag-tell my story. We have alot to work on before our show in the fall.

If you dont rescue, Dont Breed.
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

|I was alone at the show, I have one goofy picture on the camera. However, at our next show that is on my check list of things to bring.|
1. friend to take pictures and to hold him when I have to use restroom
3. bigger water bucket
4. more towels to wipe face
5. varitey of treats
If anyone has a cheat sheet of what they bring, I saw that some folks had a tackle box. I am one of those people that will have everything ready to go on a moments notice (evacuation paperwork, human/pet first aid kit, auto breakdown kit -- I was a girl scout now they just call me McGyver)

|Alright McGyver Everything you mentioned above plus grooming items, baby wipes are great for this, safe snacks for people/dogs. |
You may want to get a tackle box for the first aid, grroming and show leads etc things you can leave in the car and a duffel or roll bag for stuff you need ring side, drool rags, by the washcloths by the dozen at like sams of costo or something, brush, ring shoes, extra set of car keys, pen paper show entry and whatever else fits in there.
