Bokeh's big weekend

So last weekend Bokeh went with our friend Matt to Chicago for a Mini Aussie event. He was introduced slowly to the dock and pool for dock diving. (Thanks Bill for going in with him)

He also did 3 conformation shows. He placed 1st in each one of them. We did find out that he was the ONLY puppy in his age group though so that is why he got 1st. But I guess the judges don't have to give you a placement if they feel you don't deserve it so he did earn his ribbons. We are learning a lot about conformation now.

Here is a video of him in the conformation ring with Matt. Bokeh loves his "Uncle" Matt.

We would also like to thank all of our friends and all the new bloggers that stopped over to send us warm thoughts about my sister Hannah. It is very much appreciated.

  12. Congrats Bokeh! That is cool that you did so well - and we know it is because you did a good job even if you were the only puppy there! We think you are going to be very good at swimming - we would never try that!

  13. Congratulations Bokeh! We knew you were a winner, ribbons or not. The ribbons are more for the peeps. I just like to chew them up!

  14. Good boy Bokeh! You are going to be swimming soon enough. Maybe if they were so kind with humans and bribed us with food, more of us would know how to swim. Says the non swimmer. =0)
