Sat, Sun., & Mon. Griffey’s junior handler, Haley Pemble, also showed Griffey in Junior Showmanship. Very brave to take a 10 month old puppy into a class where having a dog trained to nail free stacks is what wins. They did not place but looked great together. I overheard one of Haley’s friends telling her that “it takes guts to take a puppy into Junior Showmanship.”
Sat night Gail and husband Bob organized a lovely dinner at a local Thai restaurant. Sandy (Dobbins’ owner), Dallas & Judy Meggit, Hannah (Ranger’s handler) and Luis (Hannah’s boyfriend), Tracy & Haley, and honorary Briard people Dennis & Kathy Morgan (current owners of Boxers who shared our grooming space) all attended.
