New York         Feb 11-Westminster Kennel Club ---Thumper showed like a dream for Maria and was brought through Judge Jimmy Moses's cut but alas, was not used for any of the available ribbons. But had a great time at our first Westminster and we might give it another try some time!

The judging is on video here: http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org/videos/#/Breed%20Judging/2013/Herding/vid:2624786     His examination starts around minute 19 . He was a good boy on the green carpet.

Fortunately someone ringside got some nice photos since I didn't want to have to worry about handling a camera that day. Thank you Kaylene Scotton for both of these!

Now Thumper has few days off with me at home before an ASCA show weekend in my area , after which he'll return to a show schedule with his handler Maria Neff.
