It was bound to happen sooner of later, a show where we would stay in a hotel! We survived, but the hotel was sadly just barely livable, not only being hot and humid but as we turned on the AC to cool off, found that someone had let their dog or child pee in it! So we propped the door open. Enda did okay, she was GREAT in the room, but didn't like the outside area and it almost took all day for her to #2.
So after arriving the evening before we woke up and got ready early for our super early show time. Of coarse, yet another disappointing weekend of going Best of Breed simply for having no competition. After going back to the hot hotel to laze away the afternoon till group time we decided to leave a bit early not able to stand the stuffy ex-smoking box. Thankfully the show site was great and had a couple jumbo sized fans and the fair ground buildings were nice and cool.
So our first ring of two up, the special of the weekend, a "Best Amateur Owner Handler" competition, 4 dogs in the herding group and thankfully Enda had finally wiggled her hotel jail energy out, where we walked away with second in group! Of coarse I already knew we were going to get dumped in the real group, She was doing great till our down and back when she decided on the back she was going to try and walk out of the ring, pulling to the left and standing crooked.
It was a long weekend and we are more than relieved to be home, maybe some year we might stay in a hotel again, but we will try to budget next time for a much newer building however.
