    So, we're off to the dog show.....

    My lovely Ocean, who is my avatar, is being shown on Saturday at the Shetland Sheepdog Specialty Show in Chilliwack, BC. Wish me luck!!! She is now spayed and is being shown in the "Altered" category. She won a Best Puppy in Show when she was 7 months old so I'm hoping for a repeat performance. This picture is a couple of years old and she is a lot more coat now. It is right to the ground and she looks spectacular!!! Can you tell I'm in love??

    Good luck at the show, she is beautiful. My Bailey is just a mixed breed "mutt" but I love her all the same.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Glad my little manly poodle can't see her or he might leave home! Good luck, and like I said, she's gorgeous!

    We picked up our new puppy yesterday. 7 week old sable sheltie. After just 2 days she has captured our hearts.

    Thank you for your good wishes. Oh - a new sable puppy!!! How exciting! What did you name her? Congratulations! Shelties are such wonderful pets and devoted family dogs. I have had shelties for 30 years and never regretted a moment!

    Thanks Rainy. This picture was taken at James Bay in Victoria. The show starting tomorrow is a Sheltie Specialty as well as an all breed. It would have been nice to meet you there!

    We have had two Shelties and agree that they are beautiful dogs. We now have a tiny peke-a-poo as we live in town in a condo. A Shelti loves to bark way too much for in town close living. Your dog is a beauty!

    She's gorgeous and they are such nice puppies (always our babies). We have 3 (pedigree mutts). They have different pedigrees in them. They're older but DH still calls them "puppies".

    Good luck!!! Let us know how she does. My DH and I love Dog Shows. My friends think it is funny that we go to dog shows and we don't have a dog. It is like getting our dog fix without the mess..LOL............Anyway GREAT dogs and people at dog shows.

    Beautiful blue merle girl. I have a blue merle cardigan welsh corgi bitch that I bred..she is gorgeous, she also finished early but developed Addison's disease at 2 yo so that put an end to her show career. She was exactly what I wanted for a foundation bitch but that didn't happen and she is a so very pretty pet. The other co-owner advised me to put her down but there was no way I could do that. She's got a forever home right here!

    What a beautiful pup! I have a sheltie/collie mix who is shedding all 5-6 layers of coat right now so I admire those of you who show these and keep them perfectly groomed!
