Nerves are setting in
I don’t know why, because I’ve been to tons of dog shows, but this weekend’s dog show has my nerves a-jitter. I suppose it’s because for the first time ever, one of my dogs is going to be shown by a professional handler. Grace has been down visiting her favourite Aunty for the past week, and now she’s with her handler. I have never sent my dogs with anybody else, because I don’t like the feeling of not being in control. I’m going to be sitting at work tomorrow, nervous as all get out. And then again on Saturday – well, I won’t be at work, but I’ll be in the car, waiting for that fateful text message or phone call.
It will culminate on Sunday. Sunday marks Jack-Jack’s debut in the ring. I’m not sure he’s totally ready, but I’m only attending 2 shows this fall, so I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to show him as a puppy. He’s still fairly shy, but I’m hoping that me being with him in the ring will help.
I most likely won’t post blog updates until Monday now . . . I have to prepare tomorrow night (pack, etc) and then I won’t have tons of time while in Edmonton. Wish us luck!
