GSWC Specialty Show at Plainfield Kennel Club

Savi practicing before Sweeps
 One of our annual Memorial Day Weekend traditions is to support our club's Specialty show, which is part of the Atlantic Shore Classic show circuit in Freehold, NJ.  It is one of our favorite show sites, except it can and usually is extremely hot and humid this time of year.  Under 80 degree weather, we did our best to keep the dogs cool and have a good time.  It was a busy show, as we had three of our girls entered, Savi, Trudy and Jam, and I was fortunate to have my good friend, Kellyann there to help with the girls and take pictures.  The club served a lovely lunch to everyone entered and we even got to spend time with Michele and Mia, who came for a short visit.
Mia, Grayhart's American Woman, had some show training and we can't wait to start showing her this year.

Savi, getting ready for the judge to examine her.
 Savi, Grayhart's Shear Genius,JH,CGC, (Clay x Trixie),who has not been shown much, did very well, especially since she does not care for the hot weather but held her stacks, stood for exam and gated nicely.  She placed 3rd in sweeps and 3rd in the 12-18 class, both the biggest classes of the day.
Trudy, Grayhart's Special Reserve, (Zeke x Trixie) spent a wonderful weekend with us and found every tennis ball in the house, no matter how well hidden! She remembered how to be a show girl and placed 2nd in the Open class.  She got to then go home to swim in her pool.
Jam waiting for her turn to go in the ring, she's cool as a cucumber..
Jam, CH Grayhart's Purple Haze,CD,JH,OA,NAJ,NSD,V, held up very well under the hot conditions and received an Award of Merit!  After the show, we celebrated by visiting our favorite vendors and Jam and Savi both got fabulous new collars.

  1. Mia's looking good, can't wait to see her more often... The Long Island Princess held up pretty well considering the heat; Nice Job with her red ribbon--a well-deserved dip in her pool afterwards!...Jam, turned up the specialness for her birthday weekend and even wow'd the vendors at the collar booth with her showgirl style!
    And last but not least, Savi.... my pbp turns on the cute like no other ;-) Each show, she's working it and she is proving she is going to own the show ring!
