So Saturday Jet and I went to the Danish-Swedish Farmdog National Specialty in Claremont, California. Since the DSF is not an AKC recognized breed, the specialty is held in conjunction with an American Rare Breed Association (ARBA) show. The DSFCA flew in a Danish Judge to judge the Farmdogs for their show. I went last year… and Jet won Best In Show puppy last year. I was proud of him. He was too young to get any points though. As he was under six months old.
This year he didn’t do any better than how he did in Denmark at the dog shows. 🙂 No surprise. He’s not changed much. He’s a bit skinny still, and too elegant. But he’s young and he hasn’t filled out yet. And the Farmdogs are supposed to be much more broad than him. I wasn’t disappointed. I figured that’s how it would be. I really mainly went to meet some of the Farmdog gals I’ve been chatting with online lately. And I had a great time meeting them! They are performance people and do flyball and agility and stuff. So it was worth the trip. 🙂
Plus we got to meet Flora (above) who was the first Danish-Swedish Farmdog imported into the USA. 🙂 Though I should have looked for some technology jobs while I was there… so I could move to sunny California! But I didn’t. 🙂
Above is a picture of one of the classes. I think that’s Flora in there, which would make it Veterans…. I think! I have such a rotten memory. 😉
