Go Mr. Drysdale! He is definitely living up to his show name, "Pickwick's Mr. High Falutin" and rocking the show ring! At his very first official dog show, in the 6-9 puppy class, Drysdale scored BOTH of his majors plus 8 points toward his championship. Now that's a way to start off a show career. Now, we can just relax and have some fun! (Perhaps learn to hold a stack on the table a bit better ;) and not give the furry eyeball look when the judge examines him HA). He is young and this is that age when they can go through a fear phase (just in time to start a show career, eh?) so I have no doubt he will learn to be more comfortable at these shows. In his defense, the Greenville Convention Center was SO loud and the amplification of the singer for the National Anthem JUST before he was to enter the ring almost blasted my ear drums. Dogs are even more sensitive with their hearing so I can't imagine what he was going through! (And, yes, she did go up for that high note lolz. Beautiful voice, just amplified too much). Here are some shots of Mr. Drysdale having some fun, from his first puppy match at 3 months of age in Tallahassee Florida, to his march in a Mardis Gras parade, to his BPUPs (along with his brother Jethro) in Columbiana and other locations, to his first official show in Greenville July, 2023 at the Carolina Foothills Cluster . . . .
