The Show Ring

Here are a few pictures from our conformation experience:

Waiting for our turn in the ring.

The judge.

Getting those "pearly whites" checked.

Being examined.

Once around the ring.

The final placement order.

Bosley and his "show dog" ribbons.

I was very proud of Bosley in the show ring.  He let the judge examine him without even flinching or looking at her.  I did have a yummy piece of cheese in my hand, so I am sure that helped.

Thanks to everyone, especially Julia, who gave me lots of showing tips.  Also a big thanks to everyone who took their time to "examine" Bosley to help him get ready for his big day.


  1. i am happy to examine Bosley anytime!

    look at the drool on his face in those posed photos, I think he was thinking of the sexy babe in front of him in the show ring!!!!

    congrats again!!!

    so how do you plan on topping that next year!!!

  2. I didn't even notice the drool! I guess he really wanted the cookie that I had in my hand.

  3. nice show pictures, you guys looked really nice!

  4. wow he looks like a pro! way to go Bos!

  5. Wow, the rosettes are big compared to the ones we got! Sweet! Bosley, I bet you were as good boy in the ring. You're so much like Chloe. Very calm...Congrats!
