My Sister Tori
My sister Tori is a conformation show dog. Aunt Karen brought her down to a big dog show at the State Fairgrounds this weekend and Barbara and I went to the show to cheer her on.
It is very hard to show in conformation. You must have lots of baths and grooming which, as you know, I don't like. Then you have to learn to stand very still while the judge examines you. Tori does this very well but I found it extremely difficult when I took a handling class. Then you have to gait around the ring so the judge can see how well you move. That was the only part I liked to do.
Tori did not win today but she is very beautiful and I know that soon she will win many ribbons at dog shows just like our mom Misty and our dad Garrett. I'll just stick to tracking since it doesn't involve any baths.
