This weekend was our first dog event for 2013, On Friday the Northstar Herding Group show and then the weekend was the Land O Lakes show. It was Wash's second show weekend, and he had a pretty good one. On Friday first was puppy sweepstakes. Wash took second to his brother Malcolm, but then in the show, Wash was Winners Dog and Best of winners for a 3 point major. On Saturday he repeated WD and BOW for 4 points. Today, he was reserve to Malcolm. Not a bad weekend for the boys at all.
Our one issue this weekend is that Wash was showing a few signs of stress. At least I think it was stress. On Friday we ran into a friend of mine who gave me a hug. Wash immediately started barking and growling Initially I thought maybe he was trying to protect me, but I am really not sure. He showed signs of being concerned about new people several times over the weekend. I am hoping it is an age thing, or a hormone thing, or just something we can work through, but I will say its something that made me a bit concerned. So I am pretty sure the little man will be taking a lot of excursions in the very near future-out and about to learn about life.
Overall though, a pretty fun weekend.
