Greensboro, NC

We traveled to Greensboro, NC to compete in conformation. So far, we've had a great weekend of showing. Mia went winners' bitch and best of winners on Friday (which gave her 2 more points towards her championship), and then went reserve on Saturday. She also earned her canine good citizen on Saturday and impressed the evaluator with her obedience and solid temperament.

Loving my girl:)

We even had a chance to go to a park in Burlington and let the girls stretch their legs. Here they are going after a stick in the creek.

Our adventure west - Part 2

After the shows in Greenville, SC, we got to spend a few days with Debbie and Joe (Sky's owners) in Maggie Valley, NC. We had a great time hiking at Max Patch and hanging out at the house.

Our adventure west - Part 1

We traveled west to go to the Greenville, SC shows to compete in rally advanced and conformation. Mia showed well in conformation and even won her class Friday but unfortunately, we didn't get any of the points. Mia did awesome in rally and scored 97 out of 100 all 3 days, earning 2 first places and a fourth place (and her title, of course). Two of the days, we literally ran to the rally ring from conformation which left us no time for a warm-up (and I didn't get to walk the course...thank goodness for the maps). I was SO proud of my girl. Several people commented on how well she did and how great her attention was. Novice obedience, here we come:)
