We had earthdog this morning. None of us passed. Junior Earthdog had 5 qualifiers and most of them were also doing conformation in the afternoon. Senior had no qualifiers. Master had 1 qualifier, a Norfolk, and since no one qualified in Master on Friday this was the first of the weekend.
We got to see some of the residents of the farm where the earthdog was held. These are just some of the guys. The girls were elsewhere.
More residents (all are in good health even the one lying down)
The Michigan crew even arrived. Nicholas the rescue dog (center) is looking great!

I'm pretty sure that Vinne (Meadowlake Van Gogh) was Winners Dog, but could be wrong, Here are the dog class winners; Open was Vinnie; Bred By was McHenry's Rage Against the Machine; Senior Puppy was Duets on Your Mark; and Junior Puppy was Radland's Conundrum's in the Sin Bin.
I have pictures, but am too tired to put them up tonight, plus I'm not feeling too good. Here's one picture of Fells' conformation debut.
The puppy in front, Jane Parker's Radland's Conundrum's in the Sin Bin won the class both in sweeps and regular.
Duet's on Your Mark was best in puppy sweeps and Fells' cousin Tribble (Faireview Double Back to Bandersnatch) was Best of Opposite
Ethan (Otterkin Blue Bayou Conundrum) won Veteran Sweeps and Ch Roschel's Firefly was Best of Opposite. Below is a picture of Ethan with Kathy Wilkenson.

I do have all the results and can give class results to anyone asking for them in the comments section, just tell me which you want.
It was a busy day today! First we started with a conformation show. I found a good seat to watch and take pictures.
A very pretty bitch won Best of Breed, Ch Picer Wotta Conundrum owned and shone by Jane Parker.
The Winners Dog and Best of Opposite was Tafkan McHenry Hendley Earnshaw owned by Kathy Sarvinas from Bred By and the Winner Bitch and Best of Winners was Redgate's Beacon of Light owned by Jen Holder from the puppy class.
Earthdog was fun for the dogs that got to run, but no one in my household or dog family qualified, Fells cousin Tribble got an Intro leg though.
We helped do setup
It was cloudy and occasionally rained throughout the day
Fells and Tribble enjoyed the puppy playpen, as did Fells and Tank and Geordie. Here he is with Tribble. You'd never guess they were cousin would you?
Well we arrived in Ontario for the Border Terrier Canada National Specialty. It was a long drive, but we're settled in. Free and I checked out the bed.
Fells, my pup, aka the running, jumping, and chewing machine, got the training bed.
Tomorrow will have all breed conformation and earthdog. I'm not entered in either so I will have time to report. Free is going to do Senior and Fells Intro. The Senior is tougher than what we normally see, but Free says that she's up for the challenge.
