Jeff arrived with Cujo this morning. We basically hadn't seen each other for more than a few minutes at a time for a week so it was nice to see him :)
The morning began with pouring rain. Just what you want when showing a heavily coated breed outdoors! Stanley was the youngest special in the ring by quite a bit, but he free-stacked on his own and moved beautifully. I was thrilled when he made the first cut! After that only older dogs (3-4+ yrs old) were selected but I was still happy with our outing. His sister Beatrix, who definitely looks more mature in terms of coat and size, won an Award of Merit!
I have GREAT photos and I can't get them uploaded - stoopid hotel wireless! I promise tomorrow when we get home!
