I was in shock right along with Mom when the nice judge called the Havanese. I was so excited and proud of myself. Mom was so proud of me she cried. I got a blue blanket for OH Toy Group 1 and red blanket for OH-RBIS. I also got really nice rosettes. Mom gave a really big treat of chicken too! Wow what a day! Mom and Dad call me R-BIS now. I just smile and say yep that is me! Mom has my blankets and rosettes on the shelf in the family room for everybody to see. She also needs to be reminded that it really happened. I guess I have to say me too!

Mom and I want to give a very big and special THANK YOU Bark out to Breed Judge Mrs Jacqueline Quiros-Kubat, OH Toy Group Judge Mrs Shalisa Neely, and OH Best in Show Judge Mr Steven D Gladstone. We are honored that you recognized Charles' strong Havanese Qualities!

Wow I finally got that last point I needed to get my Bronze level of Grand Champion!! Yea!! It was a really good weekend. I showed beautifully and Mom was so proud of me. I got a Best of Breed, two OH Best of Breed, and two selects. I showed 4 out of the 5 days. Mom gave me a rest on Sunday, something about the judge. I had a really good time. I didnít like watching Mom showing Buffi, I was afraid that she wasnít going to show me so when she did take me in the ring I did all the stuff I should do and I did it well! I am now known as Bronze Grand Champion!

BGCH Charles

Wow!! OH Group 1!!

OH Toy Group 1

Mr Steven D Gladstone

Tri-City Kennel Club, Amana, IA, Friday August 28, 2015

Wow did I do good today or what? I took Best of Opposite in the breed ring and Owner Handled Breed! I went on to OH Toy Group ring and took it all! I got a Group 1! A really big special bark out to Mr. Steven D Gladstone! I got to the Best in Show Ring and was so excited. I was showing very well and then, Oh My, the Judge kicked the table when I was on it! It scared me so bad! I thought she did it on purpose and didnít like me. Mom told me to ĎShake it offí and I did. I pulled out of it but I was still a little scared. I was afraid the Judge might kick me. Mom told me ďnot to worry; the Judge would never to do that. She didnít mean to kick to the table it was an accident. She actually likes you.Ē So I believed Mom and finished my showing like a real champ! I didnít win but it was such an honor just being in the OH Best in Show ring!

20104 AKC NOHS #6 Havanese!!

2014 Wrap up! December 2014

Wow 2014 was a really good year for me. I took multiple breed wins and multiple AOH group placements.

I finished as a top 10 finalist in the AKC National Owner Handler Series with my Mom on my lead. We make a really good team and just love showing with my Mom and she loves showing me. So here is to 2014.

GCH Charles the 2014 AKC National Owner Handler Series Finalist #6 Havanese

Owner-Handled Group 1 !!!!

Owner-Handled Group 1 !!!!

Waterloo Kennel Club, Waterloo, IA, Saturday-Sunday June 28-29, 2014

Wow what a weekend! That Rozy thought she was going to beat me but I tricked her. I got to want to play in the ring. HE HE! I took Best of Breed both days and Best Owner-Handled both days. I got a Owner-Handled Group 2 win on Saturday. Sunday was really hot and man I got a workout. I had to run from ring to ring several time with no breaks in-between. Mom said I out performed myself and she was so proud of me. I got Owner-Handled Group 1 !! I got to go to the Best in Show ring for the Owner-Handled group winners. What an honor to be in the ring with the last 7 Owner-Handled dogs left standing in the entire show! Each one was a beautiful example of each of their individual breed. What a thrill for both Mom and me!

Clinton Iowa Kennel Club, DeWitt, IA, Saturday-Sunday March 28-29, 2014

Sunday was a really good day so Iíll just write about Sunday and try to forget Saturday! I took Best of Breed!! I didnít perform very well in Group though. I had to take care of business if you know what I mean, I HAD TO POOP! Mom forgot to take me outside before I showed. I got pulled for the short list, wow just think what I would have gotten if I had performed my best. Thanks a lot Mom! I told Mom next time take me outside before I show! A very special Bark out to Mr. William (Sandy) Gunn, I enjoyed showing to you in both the Breed and Toy Group Rings today.

NEW GRAND CHAMPION!!!!

Wright County MN Kennel Club, Hutchinson, MN Saturday-Sunday October 5-6, 2013

I am a new GRAND Champion!! I took BoS on Saturday and picked up another major. I got that last point needed toward my title!! YEA!!!! Mom was so proud of me!! I also took BoS on Sunday. yoRzy doesnít have anything over me now! Iím a new GRAND Champion!!

What a win!!!!

Cornhusker KC of Lincoln NE, Lincoln, NE Thursday October 3, 2013

Well I guess the Judge was in love with a little puppy. He gave her breed over 3 specials! Oh well, I took BoS over a really nice boy and picked up another point towards my GRAND title and Mom made the Judge take a picture with was! He he!!

BOB and a 5 Point MAJOR!!!!

BOB and a 5 Point MAJOR!!!!

Rochester Minnesota Kennel Club, Rochester, MN SaturdayĖSunday September 14-15, 2013

Well I decided to trust Mom and show my best! It paid off! I got Best of Breed bothdays! I picked up two 5 pointers

for my Grand title. Wow what a weekend! Iím not so sure of the big ring that they call groups though. Saturday I didnít

show very well. Mom decided to break out the string cheese on Sunday and it worked.I showed beautifully. All I

could think of was that cheese. I didnít even mindthe clapping from the spectators. I seem to be a crowd favorite

since Iím the corded Havanese. A very special Bark out to Ms Lloyd and Mrs Tietjen. Wado!

Des Moines Kennel Club, Des Moines, IA SaturdayĖSunday September 7-8, 2013

I AM CHIEF DRAGGIN TAIL !!!!!! OK Mom, Iíll get over the tail issue I had at Amana as long as you promise to protect my back side and keep the handler behind me at a decent

distance.

Tri-City Kennel Club and Cedar Rapids Kennel Association, Amana, IA FridayĖMonday August 30-September 2, 2013

OK people, DONíT GET IN MY SPACE!! Um, excuse me, YOU ARE ON MY TAILl!! I was crowded in the ring and got my tail stepped on. I was so upset and angry that I dragged my tail for the next 3 days!! Mom and Dad was upset too. Finally on Monday Mom told to GET OVER IT! Ya, it was rude and really bad but stop hurting yourself. About half into the show I realized Mom was right. I picked my tail up and showed beautifully. Mom told me that she was so proud of me and I just love seeing my Mom so happy.

BOB and a 3 Point MAJOR!!!!

Kennel Club of Freeborn County MN, Albert Lea, MN SaturdayĖSaturday August 10-11, 2013

Saturday was NOT fun and that all Iím going to say about that. I might say more than I should! Sunday was really fun! I showed beautiful and I got Best of Breed for 3 point major toward my Grand Champion Title!! YEA!!! Iím half way to my second title!! I showed in the Toy group but didnít get very far. I donít think that the Toy group judge like me very much. I do send out a very big bark out to Mr Kilcullen. I really enjoyed your ring on Sunday!

BOB and a 3 Point MAJOR!!!!

Burlington Kennel Club, West Burlington, IA SaturdayĖSaturday August 3-4, 2013

Wow what a weekend!!! I had so much fun showing this weekend. I got Best of Breed for my first major towards my Grand Champion title!! YEA!!! I showed the best that I ever have but Sundayís Judge didnít seem to like me. He gave me Select. Saturday he didnít like me either in group, I got dumped! I showed really well too. Oh, well, maybe the next judge will think Iím still worthy of a group placement. I am a crowd favorite! I do have fans you know!

Duluth Kennel Club, Duluth, MN Thursday Ė Saturday July 11-12, 2013

Mom and Dad didnít enjoy the Duluth Show very much this year. It was quite interesting to say the least. I didnít get totally dumped. I took Best of Opposite Sex all three days. The thing that is confusing is that I didnít get the select points toward my Grand Champion title on Saturday. The Judge chose to withhold them for some reason. Mom is working to find out why. Hopefully it was just a mistake and it can get corrected. Mom said something about Rozy and Respect on Saturday so we decided to just leave the show and go to Lake Vermilion. Iím so glad we did. I have heard so much about the Lake and how nice it is. Guess What? It is nice!! We saw the bear too at the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary. We saw young bear, baby bear, momma bear, and daddy bear. It was really cool!!

Update 08/06/2013: Guess what, my point that was withheld was a mistake! Mom emailed the judge and she corrected it. I got my point! A very special bark out to Mrs. Herbel!!

Yellowstone Valley Kennel Club, Billings, MT Tuesday - Thursday June 18 - 20, 2013

Electric City Kennel Club, Great Falls, MT Friday Ė Saturday June 21 - 22, 2013

Five Valley Kennel Club, Missoula, MT Sunday June 23, 2013

Well The Billings shows was not so good to me and that is about all Iím going to say about that! What a way to start a long week of shows! But Guess what? Things got better. Friday and Saturday at the Great Falls shows I took out a top dog for Select both days. I got two of my Champions defeated for my Grand Champion Title! I was so tired from the travel and showing that we almost didnít go to Missoula. We discussed it and I told Mom and Dad that I wanted to show one more time and see if I could get my 3rd Champion defeated. I did it!! Not only did I get the defeated I took Best of Breed for a point and Best AOH. I took out some really nice boys. I was so tired in Group that I didnít want to show. Mom gave me a pep talk and I did ok in Group but I had one more showing to do, AOH Group. Mom had to really talk to me to get me to show. She told me I would get a really big surprise if I would show for her so I did. I got a AOH Group 3. For my Surprise, I got to go to Glacier National Park. I got to ride in a really nice big SUV and drive the ĎGoing to the Sun Roadí. How many Havanese can say they have done this? I also got to go to Yellowstone National Park and see the buffalo. yoRzy hates buffalo. We had a really good time in Montana. All the folks at the shows were so nice to us and really made us feel welcome. A huge Bark out to our new Montana friends!!!!!

Select Dog!!!!

BOB!!!!

West Michigan Apple Blossom Cluster, Kalamazoo, MI Thursday Ė Monday May 23 Ė 27, 2013

Ok that so called ĎSpecialsí ring is ruff! Mom moved me up so that I could have the experience with the big dogs in the breed competition. It was grueling! I did act out a little but Mom told me I couldnít do that as a ĎSpecialí. I had to act like a show dog and not a block head puppy. Iím not too sure how Iím going to like this? I guess Iíll give it a try.

I'm a NEW CHAMPION!!!!

Scott County Kennel Club, Bettendorf, IA Saturday Ė Sunday May 11 Ė 12, 2013

Well guess what? I gave Mom a New Champion for Motherís Day!! Yep, I got that last point needed and Iím a New Champion. Saturday I really didnít want to win. I wanted to save it for Sunday so I could give Mom a present. So on the last go around I dropped my tail just enough to loose but on Sunday, I was totally into it. I performed beautifully and I won Winners Dog. Mom said it was the best present she could have gotten. Thank you Mr. Steve Hayden, with your help I made Mom very happy. Yea!!!

14 points and counting!!!!

Heart of Iowa Kennel Club, Marshalltown, IA, Saturday April 27, 2013

Ok today the judge knows his Havanese and that we can be corded. I won winners dog for another point and then took Best of Opposite. Yippeee!! A special bark out to Mr. Fred C Bassett. Only one more point to go.

Heart of Iowa Kennel Club, Marshalltown, IA, Saturday April 27, 2013

I am not a miniature Puli or Komodor!! The judge liked me but when Mom put me on the table for my exam the judge said something about a miniature Puli and Miscellaneous ring. I know what he was thinking; I was in the wrong ring! Well Iím a Havanese and I was in the right ring. Mom was laughing and said that she and judge was joking but Iím not so sure about that. I didnít win.

Almost there!!!!

Waterloo Kennel Club, Waterloo, IA, Sunday April 21, 2013

I didnít do as well today but I still did extremely well. I got Winners Dog and Best Bred By. Mom was so proud of me. I strutted my stuff again but the judge liked the girl better than me and she was quite the gal if you know what I mean. I got to go the group Bred By and I took 3rd place. It was so cold by the time I went to Bred By Group, I was freezing! I sure hope next weekend is warmer. We still had a wonderful weekend in Waterloo and I picked up 4 more points. Yea, Iím almost a Champion.

11 points and counting!!!!

Wow Group 4!!!!

Waterloo Kennel Club, Waterloo, IA, Saturday April 20, 2013

I really did it today!! I strutted my stuff for the judge and it paid off. I got Best of Breed. YEA!!! I didnít know I had it in me but Mom did. She refuses to give up on me. There were a lot of really nice boys and girls in the show today but I was the best Havanese! I got to go to the big ring and run with the big dogs. Guess what, I didnít stay on the porch! I got a Toy Group 4th place. Yes sireee. Mom didnít think that I would get a placement but I fooled her. I told her that I was done fooling around and it showed well enough for the judge to give me a placement. Pretty good for a class boy huh? A very special bark out for Mr Timothy Catterson.

Clinton Iowa Kennel Club, DeWitt, IA, Saturday-Sunday March 30-31, 2013.

I performed the best I ever have this weekend! Mom and Dad was so proud of me! The funny thing is that Ziggyís Mom and My Mom wore the same clothes. They both had black slacks and leopard print jackets. They even both had on really pretty beads and black shoes and they didnít plan to wear the same clothes. When the judge pointed at the winner in the class I think he meant to point at Mom and me but he got confused and pointed at Ziggy and his Mom! After we showed Mom and Zigggyís Mom talked and they planned to wear their tan slacks and black sweaters on Sunday. I told Mom if I see her wearing her tan slacks on Sunday I would pee on them! He he!

Well Sunday I helped Mom pick out her clothes and she wore navy slacks, a burgundy sweater, and brown jacket with really pretty breads. Guess what? Ziggyís Mom showed up wearing the same! I was really upset and afraid that the Judge would get confused again and point to Ziggy and his Mom when he really meant to point at me. Oh ya, he did.

The really bad thing is, Winnerís dog went to a really nice boy and his Dad who was wearing tan slacks! Next time Mom is wearing her tan slacks.

 

Cyclone CountryKennel Club of Ames, Des Moines, IA, Saturday-Sunday February 16-17, 2013.

Charles: A oh there is something behind me,  I have a shadow following me, A oh my there is something behind me, Oh MY ITíS SCARRY really SCARRY!!

Mom: CHARLES, PICK UP YOUR TAIL!!!!!

Charles: Oh, itís my tail! A oh there is something behind me,  I have a shadow following me, A oh my there is something behind me, Oh MY ITíS SCARRY really SCARRY!!

 

Lake Shore KennelClub, Crete, IL, Saturday-Sunday November 24-25, 2012.

It was a fun weekend! I showed really well and took reserve on Saturday. Sunday was a little strange. The judge kept looking at me and examining me and I thought she liked me. Dad even said that he thought I had it. Guess what? No way! I did win my class though. I have so many people tell me how cute I am with mop dog look. I also have so many people ask if Iím a baby Puli or Komondor. Guess what people? We are not born looking like this; itís a lot of hard work to get this mop dog look!!! IíM A HAVANESE!!!!

 

Sioux Empire KennelClub, Sioux Falls, SD, Friday-Sunday October 26-28, 2012.

It was a decent weekend. I got Reserve Winners the first two days and dumped on Sunday! Oh well, you canít win them all! I had a really good two weeks and vacation was a blast! Iím ready to get home after 10 days on the road.

Rapid City Kennel Club, Rapid City, SD, Friday-Sunday October 19-21, 2012.

Wow, what a weekend! I won all three days and picked up 3 more points! I showed very well and Mom was so proud of me that we had our picture taken each day. That capocollo really works for me, YUM! I even got Best Bred By Entry for my breed and a Group 4 win in the Toy BBE Group. It was a fun weekend and I get to go on vacation next week with my family. We plan to see the Black Hills sights and yoRzy is planning on seeing a buffalo.

9 points and counting!!!!

I'm a Winner!!!!

I'm a Winner!!!!

Mason City Kennel Club, Mason City, IA, Saturday-Sunday October 13-14, 2012.

Well this weekend was about as bad as it gets and it wasnít because I didnít show well! Thatís about all Iím going to say about that!

Platte Valley KC of Fremont and Cornhusker KC of Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, Thursday-Sunday October 4-7, 2012.

Well, I wasnít happy with the bait Mom decided to use in the ring. The first day I performed okay but not my best. Friday and Saturday I was so mad at Mom, I want to have capocollo in the show ring! Iím a very stubborn boy so I didnít perform at all for Mom. I had to have a Ďtalkí with her and guess what? I got capocollo onSunday!! I performed the best that I ever have! You think I will get capocollo next weekend?

Rockford-Freeport Illinois Kennel Club, Freeport, IL, Saturday-Sunday September 29-30, 2012.

Mom and I had a really long talk before this show. She informed me that for my Indian name I was named after a really famous Cherokee Chief who was a BRAVE not a coward! So Chief Draggin Tail is not a coward name. I need to live up to my name sake and be brave picking up my tail. I didnít realize this until Mom and I had our Ďtalkí. Guess what? I was so brave and excited that I was named after a famous Cherokee Chief; Mom had a hard time controlling me, he he! I performed the best that I ever have! Unfortunately the judges didnít like me. I got 2nd in my class each day. I wonder if they thought I was a baby Komondor and in the wrong ring?

Tri-City Kennel Club and Cedar Rapids Kennel Assoc, Amana, IA, Friday-Monday August 31-September 3, 2012

I was still Chief of the Draggin Tails on Friday and got last in my class. Mom and I had a really long talk that night and she made me feel more at ease and confident. I went back to show on Saturday and Sunday and won my class over some really nice boys! Thanks Mom! On Monday I was tired and let my tail down. I got last in my class again. Sorry Mom, it was a long weekend!

Kennel Club of Freeborn County MN, Albert Lea, MN, Saturday-Sunday August 11-12, 2012

I had forgotten what it was like being in the show ring! Wow was I scared! Iím just still a puppy and it was stressful. Mom told me to relax; Iím a show dog and not Chief of the Draggin Tails!

Ozarks Kennel Club, Springfield, MO, Saturday-Sunday November 12-13, 2011

We spent the week on vacation in the Ozarks! Wow so much fun even though it rained Monday and Tuesday. We went antiquing in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and saw the Christ of the Ozarks. We then went to Branson, Oh ya, it was so much fun. Mom and Dad saw the Andy Williams Christmas show, GET WELL ANDY sending you warm and healthy wishes!!! Mom and Dad also went to Silver Dollar City. We Kidz had to stay in the RV, no dogs allowed! As far as the dog show, it was a really nice show site, a new building! I got 1st in my class on Saturday Reserve on Sunday.

Tri State Kennel Club, Joplin, MO, Saturday-Sunday November 5-6, 2011

Saturday was just a really bad day. Mom and Dad said something about the day after BLACK FRIDAY! Dad got sick on the drive down and Mom had to finish driving on Friday night. Mom was upset about something as kept saying Thank GOD for putting me out of my misery! So Saturday was bad. Sunday was better, I got Reserve and Dad was feeling a little better! The people of Joplin were so nice and hospitable. The devastation from the tornadoes was still apparent and Mom made the comment that these folks have been through so much and yet they have a smile and are happy, very nice strong people!

Sioux Empire Kennel Club, Sioux Falls, SD, Friday-Sunday October 28-30, 2011

OK this was the worst weekend ever! I performed very nice and the judges, Iíll just be nice and say I didnít get picked. I did win my class Friday and Saturday but Sunday, I got beat! But I must say it was a very nice puppy and an even nicer lady that was handling him!

Cornhusker Kennel Club and Platte Valley Kennel Club of Fremont NE, Lincoln, NE, Thursday-Sunday October 20-23, 2011

OK, Iím about to tie with Little Bee on Reserve ribbons! Mom said something about wallpaper in her new bathroom? Not sure what wallpaper is but she didnít sound too happy about it. Must not be a good thing. She told me that I performed my best and was looking really good in the ring. Not sure what the issue is with the judges? Donít they know a handsome boy when they see one? Well look out, Iím going to knock em out next weekend!

Mason City Kennel Club, Mason City, IA, Saturday-Sunday, October 15-16, 2011

Well what a busy weekend! I showed my very very best! Mom told me that Iím really getting the hang of this show stuff. She even gave me a loose lead and I held my head high, my tail tight, and strutted my stuff! I even free stacked a few times. I stayed still on that old table exam thing, even though thatís the worst part of it all. You know a guy doesnít like his stuff being checked out! Dad said that I looked very good in the ring. I got first in my class on Saturday and I took Reserve on Sunday.

Wright County Minnesota Kennel Club, Hutchinson, MN, Saturday-Sunday, October 8-9, 2011

I hope your weekend was better than mine! I got 2nd in my class both days and I thought I performed very well. Mom told me that I performed Okay. She told me that I have to get more confident in the ring.  I thought I was doing really well this weekend. Well I guess this is one of the times that Mom and I disagree. Iím 10 months old going on 3 years, thatís like in human years of 12 going on 18, Iím a man now and have a mind of my own! I performed perfectly I donít care what Mom says!

A 3 POINT MAJOR!!!!

Rockford-Freeport Illinois Kennel Club, Freeport, IL Saturday-Sunday, October 1-2, 2011

I really rocked this weekend. Saturday I strutted my stuff even though the puppy behind me kept making this choking noise in my class. I just looked at him and tried to ignore him. Then in Winners  Dog competition it happened again, another puppy was making weird noises that distracted me. With Momís help I pulled out of it and just ignored him. It worked too. I got Winners Dog for a 3 point Major!! YEA!! I got to go into the ring a third time and I won again! I got Best of Winners!!  Wow, the judge just loved me. On Sunday it was different story, I performed my best and didnít let those puppies distract me but the judge didnít like me. I got second in my class.

Rochester Minnesota Kennel Club, Rochester, MN, Saturday-Sunday, September 17-18, 2011

I rocked this weekend! Oh ya, I performed my best! I was so excited; Mom had to tell me to settle! It was so much fun too even though there were some really grumpy ladies at the show but we didnít let that affect us, we showed our best! I got 3rd in my class on Saturday and I got Reserve on Sunday,  YEA!!

Des Moines Kennel Club, Des Moines, IA Saturday, September 10, 2011

Today was just a really bad day. I wasnít prepared and of course I didnít perform very well. Mom was in a really bad mood so I got 3rd in my class. Mom apologized to me and we kissed and made up. I did really like the judge though; sheís a very nice and pleasant lady!

Tri-City Kennel Club and Cedar Rapids Kennel Association, Amana, IA Sept 2-5, 2011

Mom has this stuff in her pocket in a zip bag that really tastes good. All she has to do is rattle the bag and I go wild! Itís some kind of Italian meat and itís so good. I really dread the table thing, so the first time around the ring Iím not so good with my gait. After I get off the table, itís like OK Mom, letís go, Iím fired up now, that table thing is over and I want some of that stuff in your pocket! Well Iím a little tired of performing my best and not getting recognized for it! I kept my tail up the first 3 days and performed really well after the table thing. The judges just didnít seem to care so Sunday I pulled out my Indian name, Chief Draggin Tail. I got 2nd in my class each day.

Cudahy Kennel Club, South Milwaukee, WI, Friday-Saturday August 12-13, 2011 and Greater Racine Kennel Club, Racine, WI, Sunday-Monday August 14-15, 2011

I was a bit upset over the Friday Show. The judge just didnít like me or my Dad, yoR. Saturday was a really good day though. I got Reserve Winners Dog over some really nice boys.  Sunday was horrible again. I got dumped! By the time Monday got here I was so upset. I had been performing my best and keeping my tail up like Mom has told me to do all weekend! Four days is long time for a puppy to show every day! I just wasnít into showing at all on Sunday and it showed. I dragged my tail around the ring and Mom called me Chief Draggin Tail!

Southeastern Iowa Kennel Club, West Burlington, IA, Friday August 5, 2011 and Burlington Kennel Club, West Burlington, IA, Saturday - Sunday August 6-7, 2011

Iím starting to get over being so afraid of the judges now. Friday I perform very good and stayed still on the table. I did get a little afraid of the lady behind me on the last go around and didnít keep my tail up for whole time. I got Reserve. Saturday was a really bad day. I just didnít want to be in the ring, I needed to go outside for my business if you know what I mean! A guy just canít concentrate when you have business to take care of! Sunday was great! I was excited to be in the ring and I looked good. The judge didnít like my type of dog, which thatís OK. I got Reserve next a really nice boy.

Waukesha Kennel Club, Waukesha, WI, Saturday-Sunday July 30-31, 2011

I performed better this week! I didnít spin and Saturday I kept my tail up. Iím still a little scared that I might get yelled at on the table but my confidence is getting better. Sunday someone kept dropping a big fan right next to me and it scared me. I was afraid when I went into the ring. Mom called me Chief Draggin Tail again but I didnít spin even though I got confused. The show was outside and no mats! Iím just a little puppy and still learning. I wanted to graze in the grass and smell all the good things the great outdoors has to offer! OK, I have to keep my tail up and head too!

Paper Cities Kennel Club, Rothschild, WI, Saturday-Sunday July 23-24, 2011

I did really good on Saturday. I listened to Mom and perform just like I should. The judge didnít like me very well, I got Reserve. Couldnít he see how well I looked and behaved? Sunday was bad! I went in the ring and it all started good. I went around the ring, kept my tail up, walked perfectly, and I even smiled! Mom put me on the table and oh my, I had flash backs from last weekend in Duluth. I was afraid that the judge would yell at me again. He looked like Mr Rogers and no I donít want to be your neighbor! He didnít yell at me, he was nice but I was so scared. I wouldnít walk or do nothing after that. I got a Reserve ribbon though.

Duluth Kennel Club, Duluth, MN, Thursday-Sunday July 14-17, 2011

Well it was an interesting weekend. It was cold, very cold and rainy until Sunday then it was over 90 degrees! Wow! Thursday I didnít keep my tail up but the judge liked me. I keep forgetting to raise my tail! I got Reserve. Friday I performed my best ever and I remembered to keep my tail up. I guess the judge just didnít like me for whatever reason! I didnít even win my class. Sunday, the judge kinda liked me. I won my class but that was it. Mom was really surprised because this judge has been consistent in the past and she really liked my brother Picasso and my Dad who I take after. Hum? Saturday was horrible! I was performing my best again and then that table thing. The judge tried to say that I didnít have two. Mom told him yes he does and you need to find them, they are there. He took Momís word for it and then proceeded to yell and scare me so bad that when Mom put me on the mat for my down and back I just wanted to run under the table. I wonít repeat what Mom had to say about that!

Jefferson City/Sedalia Kennel Club, Sedalia, MO, Friday-Sunday July 8-10, 2011

OK, Iím starting to get a complex about my stuff! I have heard enough comments on the table exam about their size! IíM ONLY 7 MONTHS OLD!!! Donít you see how much I have improved over the last month on my showing skills! No more draggin tail for me! I did get 1st in my class on Sunday over some really nice boys. I wonder how big their stuff is, hum?

Kettle Moraine Kennel Club, West Bend, WI, Saturday - Sunday July 2-3, 2011

Well I have decided that I need some time when I first go in the ring to think about what I need to do. You know, Iím just a baby boy and I donít have a huge memory span. I was the only class boy in the show this weekend so I had to go into the ring and start performing right off the bat. NO WAY, I need to think about it for minute or two! When I went back in for Best of Winners competition on Saturday I did much better. I had some time to think about it and I perform much better. Saturday the Judge didnít give me Best of Winners even though I performed very good so on Sunday, I was so nervous that the same thing would happen to me. I got confused and did my Spin Mister thing. The judge wasnít too impressed and neither was Mom.

A 3 POINT MAJOR!!!!

Summer Solstice Cluster, Anoka County Minnesota Kennel Club and Cambridge Minnesota Kennel Club, Cambridge, MN, Friday - Sunday June 23-26, 2011

The first two days Mom wasnít too proud of me. I was still known as Chief Draggin Tail and The Spin Mister! I think my Indian name has stuck! I decided on Saturday to try really hard to perform like Mom was instructing me too. She made it fun with playing with my tail and giving me treats. I performed beautifully! I got Winners Dog over some really nice boys! I also got Best Bred By! I had so much fun that on Sunday I performed even better and I got Reserve Winners Dog! The competition was tough this weekend. So many beautiful Havanese, so many colors, and the girls, oh yea!!!!!

Fort Dodge Kennel Club, Fort Dodge, IA, Saturday/Sunday June 18-19, 2011

OK, not too sure about this whole show dog scene! Mom told me that I got worse. I thought instead of dropping my tail that I would just do spin outs when I get confused for scared and hey a guy can only take so much of rude comments about my small stuff! So did spins. I did spins all around the ring. Mom wasnít too proud of me but I had fun!

Lake Minnetonka Kennel Club, Jordan, MN, Saturday/Sunday June 11-12, 2011

I got a little better this weekend but still not sure about what to do. I kept my tail up more this time but still not sure. So many new experiences for such a small little boy. Mom told me to keep working on it and it would be fun for me before long. I sure do hope so!

Fargo-Moorhead Kennel Club, West Fargo ND, Saturday/Sunday June 4-5, 2011

I had my first experience in the show ring today. I wasnít too sure what to do. I got confused a lot and I was so scared that I kept my tail between my legs. I was really intimidated with the judges; they made comments about my small stuff! Hey, at least I didnít hide em like my Dad yoR did in his first show! Momgave me my Indian name today, I am now known as Chief Draggin Tail.  She was talking with some of my new fans ringside about an ancient cousin who was a famous Cherokee Chief and something about him dragging a canoe. I donít think itís very funny! I was so stressed about the whole experience I slept the rest of the afternoon. I was just worn out over the whole thing.
