    Picture time!

    I apologize in advance that these are pretty random. I wasn't able to stay in one place and document everything. We also had to leave before the conclusion, so I didn't catch who got best of show.

    But I can say, that there was a focus on COLOR this year! Lots of sashige and black and tans! Or at least, that's what caught my eye. ;)

    Lol, yes, #26 was being a derpy puppy. :) Prior to the dragging pic, was a cute bit of rolling around, which I was trying to get a pic of but missed.

    There was also a super aggressive dog in the same class (anybody who was there will know which I'm talking about). I was surprised they were not dismissed.
  • @zandrame - unfortunately, I'm not so surprised. At NIPPO two males got into a fight in the rings and one of them bit his handler enough to draw a lot of blood (frankly she needed medical attention). The dog still placed. I don't think all judges would tolerate it, but unfortunately, I'm not surprised that there exist some who do.
  • Thanks for sharing! I must say I am still partial to B&T Shibas. They're all beautiful nonetheless :)
  • LOL yes #26 does have a lot of energy and gets bored very quickly. He's a very silly boy.
