When Mr. Murphy does the judging schedule

"Are you gonna throw that Kong?"

I'm showing Elli for just the second time this weekend. I'm also scheduled to work my regular 3-11 on Saturday and Sunday but, since the shows are only 45 minutes to an hour away, I figured I'd be golden. That gives me till 1:30 or so before I need to leave the show grounds. It's a small show; it can't run very late, right? Right?

sigh* Cardis are in at 10:00 on Saturday, so no worries there. But on Sunday, they're listed at 1:30 -- and they are last in that block, so based on the entry before them we probably won't hit the ring until 2:30 or after. Which means I either need to skip Sunday's show or do cartwheels to get someone to work for me. Damn you, Murphy. Damn you!!

Also in the Who'da Thunk? category: Cardis have the 4th highest entry in the show. There's a 4-point major in bitches on Saturday, 3 points on Sunday. (Only a point available in dogs each day.)

Oh, and Cheryl will have her litter of Smarty puppies there -- can't wait to see the little ones!

  1. Murphy is omni-present. When I entered puppy Chase in his first shows, I also entered Kip in Obedience -- ring time for both 8:00 AM. I handed Chase off to my labrador buddy and got back to the conformation rings (after Obedience) in time for someone to hand me a purple ribbon and tell me he looked great -- sigh! The second day, I got back in time for Winners so had the opportunity to make a fool of myself. Whenever I have an entry in Obedience or Rally and also in conformation, there is a conflict.
