We are near the main ring, so lots of noise and more people for sure then yesterday when we were further down the hall.
Fleur is completing in Junior Bitch and there are 27 bitches in the class so going to be a long day, and we also have to go and see the vet to get Fleur's passport stamped to come home Sunday morning.
Judging today didn't start till 12.30pm so we watched other breeds that were in the ring, and what an interesting morning. The judge assessed dogs in the owners arms, and then once he had seen all dogs then got them to move, if he didn't like it then he dismissed them straight away. A very odd way to judge a table dog with out a table being present so to speak.
Judging then started in the ring for Afghans on time, and our judge for bitches was Mr Vojtek Vkatislav. There were some beautiful bitches today in all the classes that we saw and it was nice to see the bitches that we had seen photos of. The bitch ring wasn't as busy as the dog ring today and it was hard trying to watch both sexes whilst also keeping an eye on the classes so you don't miss your class.
Fleur wasn't really impressed with all the music that was being played in the main ring, I don't think it was her type for sure.
We were able to get Fleur outside for some fresh air being right near the door so that helped.
We went into the junior class and like at the other show it was in alphabetical order, so we were last again to be seen which was fine as gave time for Fleur to settle.
The judge moved all dogs round the ring and then went about assessing each dog and moving them.
It was our turn, we were asked to move and then stand up to be assessed, this was a odd way but something that happens here. Fleur was a good girl and didn't worry about anything.
The judge then looked along the line and pulled out 8 bitches for his selection, and we were lucky to make the cut so I was pleased, and I can say that Fleur did look a baby in the ring today against some of the other bitches who were more mature then her.
We didn't do anymore then make the final 8 and was graded Excellent again, so that in itself is a great achievement for our first time abroad for showing.
We had an appointment for 6pm, to see the vet so Fleur's passport could be stamped to say she has had her treatment to enable her to travel back into the UK. We waited in the line with other dogs for over an hour to see the vet, we was shocked at the amount of people waiting, and comments they were saying, about how long they have been trying to see the vet.
We then had a look around the show, and Fleur was bought 2 new toys, and new chain to be shown on.
We saw alot of different breeds which we didnt know what they were and tomorrow we have a day of just chilling at the show, and looking around before heading back home.
