Billy Nearly Ready for Show

I should say Billy AND I are nearly ready for the show next Friday. Dianne and I trimmed him again after receiving advice from the Groomer's Forum. We took Billy out so that he and I could practice ring work, stacking, moving, etc. It isn't as easy as it looks to properly pace your dog around the ring. I was all over the place and so was he. It was like a three ring circus at first. But we are finally getting it and it is coming together. I am excited and nervous all at the same time.

We don't expect Billy to take any ribbons but just to get experience as well as for me too. I was a little taken aback when Dianne told me today that there are 20+ dogs entered. When I checked last year's stats, there were no where near that many. I entered thinking that there would be about 8 and there wouldn't be as much pressure or distraction for either of us. Oh, well. We're just going to jump right into the frying pan and do our best.
