Today was our first show since September last year, so we were a little bit rusty. The gaiting, in my opinion, was absolutely terrible - Ashra was over excited and running everywhere, but it was good to see that Ashra's stack was much improved (I didn't have to hand stack her, she did well enough with the free stack).

But I have some EXCELLENT NEWS despite that: Ashra won the intermediate class and received her first CAC. So, because this is a multi-day show, if she wins tomorrow, she will qualify for the title Champion of Bulgaria.

The judge's written critique:
Medium substance, great top line, good movement (I'm surprised at this one, since I slipped and almost fell over), deep chest, charismatic with an excellent temperament.

    I originally hail from Australia, although I can be found in different parts of the world.  I stumbled upon my first accidental show dog (Ashra) and pedigree Dobermann this year and I am currently in the process of looking for the second addition to our team.  I'm a lostie trying to make it in the show/sport world without a clue. Learning as I go, as newbies do. I aim to document my experiences as accurately, and truthfully as I can, because I myself have found that such information (from the point of view of the "nobody"), is lacking and elusive.
