Today I was judging a dog dancing competition.
I also had a group of shadow judges, which are people training to become a judge, who judge with an already approved judge to get experience, so after the two advanced classes, we had small meetings to evaluate their judging.
So the competition ran from 9 am to 6.30 pm.
And then from 7 to 10 pm, we had a dinner/party thing.
So another long day. I need to get to bed asap!
My picture today...
The pug that I choose as my favourite today. She performed a lovely routine to music from ABBA, but sadly she had forgotten to take the harness off her dog. Competing with a harness on is not allowed as it counts as dressing the dog, which is not allowed. So a lovely routine, but a big deduction for dressing the dog. She got a special prize, which I had brought her from Denmark.
My extras are:
- All the dogs and handlers from the competition. I am in the middle and today I got to cuddle a cute little poodle for the picture.
-They have this wonderful photo wall in the hotel lobby, where you can put your dog to take pictures of it with name of the hotel and date.
I wanted a picture from that wall, so I got Helle to take a picture of Gollum and Ex-it and email it to me, I then took a picture of the wall and photoshopped the dog in in front of it. I had 15 mins to do it, so it is not perfect, but it makes me smile and I like it :-)
See you tomorrow
