Tyler is Top Dog!

On the first weekend of February we attended a Rarities show in Aledo, TX. How refreshing to not have to drive a minimum of 12 hours to show our Silkens!! Tyler was entered in all 4 shows as a special, Trouble and Gabe were entered in all 4, Isaak and Missi in 2 shows apiece. Also attending were our friend Sandra with her boy Umber, and the Freys with Sylvi (Missi's sister).

At Isaak's 1st showing, he got Reserve Winners Dog. We were pleased that he took to it as well as he did, and he showed even better the 2nd time. Gabe and Umber traded Winners Dog at 2 apiece, bringing them both closer to their ISWS championships since they both have an ISWS-specialty win under their belts.

Sylvi snagged her first points at one of the shows. Vicki has been working hard to get Sylvi into ring shape by attending handling classes. Sylvi looked really nice and is growing into a lovely young girl with a taller frame than sister Missi and both girls are carrying wonderful muscle tone. We're thrilled with how Sylvi is turning out and the Freys are wonderful folks! Missi was much more cooperative than at BooFest. Although a hard start when it came to getting her on the move, she actually did manage to string more than 2-3 strides together at the same time - although she still showed some of her bratty tendencies. There's hope for her though.

Tyler was his usual showman self and took Best of Breed at 3 of the 4 shows. We also actually had competition in the Group with a nice little blue Iggy and the Silkens swept the Groups! Tyler was awarded a Reserve Best in Show and a Best in Show! Even more exciting for us was that he came away as the Top Dog of the weekend!!
