View Full Version : Olivia's Day With Flash~ You Wont Believe it!

29th July 2007, 06:12 PM
Well, Quite an eventful day here today....
We woke early and hauled fanny to the show, met up with Kris and as I sipped my coffee watched Olivia play with Flash...

Kris was so kind to Olivia, and Flash is SUCH a happy little guy~ They were entered in Puppy Dogs 9 Months and under.....Good sized class and even though Olivia has no idea of what shes doing, she managed to table her dog and you'll never guess~ To my great surprise they managed to squeek out first place!
The whole tent was so excited for them!!!!!!

Well, then of course they are in the Open Dog class becouse she won...
I swear, I really didnt think she had half a chance there were some REALLY GOOD Dogs there- BUT Today must have been Flash and Olivias day becouse all of a sudden I see the judge point to Olivia and SHES FIRST AGAIN! Kris and I stood there speachless! ( We both knew Flash was good, but I dont think Kris even knew he was THIS GOOD)

Now the parent in me is totally FREEKING OUT becouse shes entered in the BEST OF BREED NOW- I looked at Kris, Kris looked at me and then she glanced down at Olivia and said GO FOR IT .....( You should see the dogs in this class....some of the most breathtaking dogs Ive ever seen)

So I sit back and try and relax figuring its good experience for her and hoping that she didnt knock down the fence or anything....I really dont think anyone expected much of her...Perhaps that was the key, or your Prayers, or the fact Flash is just so darn sweet and the Judge Loved him....Dunno But heres the photo to prove it!!!!!

What an incredible accomplishment!! Congratulations Kris, Bruce, Olivia and Flash!! Olivia is a darling and Flash is such a handsome boy.

Where does Flash go from here? I'm not very familiar with how the dog show circuit runs...

Congrats again! :rah:

Okay, Star forgot to sign her name to that last post...she is Flash's sister, I'm not. :D

Flash is the sweetest little guy you'd ever want to meet, besides being so handsome!

We are thrilled beyond words that Olivia was able to get Flash's first points. And what a feather in Olivia's hat, too. People starting out in showing can sometimes go for months without getting a point.

Great pictures, too. You show people, ignore the picture of Flash from behind :o . He really does look better than that once he gets his feet straight on the table. But then that's why you take the time to properly place a dog. Olivia obviously did that or he never would have beaten so many dogs. And isn't Olivia a sweetheart?! That last picture of her with the judge is perfect. Sure wish she lived closer so she could show with us more often. She's at the perfect age to start showing.

Well done, that's a great achievment, :D:rah::rah:

:rah: :cl*p: Way to go all involved!! That is a fantastic result for all of you, Flash looks amazing and Olivia looks VERY professional! I agree with Bruce that Olivia is the right age to start showing and I hope that Olivia will be able to get back in the ring again soon!! Well done to all of you, you must be so very proud of all you have achieved!! :cl*p: :rah:

That is so cool-- great for Olivia. And I've been told that Flash is a lovely lil tri boy.
Monday- one of my favorite boys, Emil Campanards Mr Sweden at Vesta won a Group 1-- That is such a great accomplishment.

Yes Sandy...and I do believe he won again today!

Olivia pointed Flash a total of 7 points If Im adding correctly over the 4 day spread~ Let me tell ya, It wasnt Livi...It was Flash.......and Kris is such a doll for letting her go the mile with him.

Mr Sweden is breathtaking, and I got a few photos of him today~ ( I had to snap a few for my hubby whos totally smitten with him)

Do you think anyone would mind if I posted a few? ( I wouldnt want to upset anyone as Im just an amature at picture taking)

Plus you do have to P.M. me your address, I have some great snapshots on Hard Film of your Topper with Olivia when we were down your way and Id love to get them to you.....Plus Doug gets a huge hug from me for his "handling class" in the midst of the nuts that was your awesome B Match...thanks again for all you both did for all of us that day~

Yes, Flash got 2 points on both Monday and Tuesday. So with 1 major and 7 points total, he is half way to his AKC championship. Olivia did such a great job of handling Flash and Kris said he really liked Olivia, so it was a perfect combination of dog and handler. Soooooo Olivia, what are you doing next summer at about this time ;) ?

You all sure are right about Mr. Sweden. He is an absolutely stunning dog.

Olivia will be first in line to bump her big sister out of the way and give Kris a hand.....When shes in our neck of the woods just give us a holler and we'll help as long as she will have us. *smile*
