Postcard From Ellie – 14 June 2016

I had another successful show this week. Two ribbons the first day, one for being best young Wheaten Terrier, (red with yellow stripe)  which was easy because once againI was the only young Wheaten Terrier. The purple on was for being a good looking hound.

I also competed in a more difficult contest, but I was nervous and it took too long for me to settle down. The competition was mostly older dogs who already knew their tricks and some of the bitches kept barking at me, which threw me off my game. This was a bit dissapointing as I so want to be known as more than a pretty face, but that’s show biz.

Another contest this Saturday.

  1. Obviously, she’s crushed.

    I just hope the pretty rewards make up for the emotional discomfort of being caged…

    Ellie is learning and her ribbons are mounting…

    • Thanks Cindy. The year started well but kind of slacked off as I entered more competitive contests with older dogs who already knew all the tricks. But I have high hopes for 2017!
      Love and best wishes for you and yours. Ellie.
