View Full Version : So proud!

we had a fun dog show near us on Saturday so popped down with the girls for a little look. The weather was terrible and we didnt stay long - werent going to enter any classes just browsing at the stalls etc. Anyway one of the organisers begged me to enter a class so we entered "waggiest tail" and Heidi won 1st prize.
I am so proud of her reason been when she came to us as a rescue she was so timid and scared she would freeze in fear and wet herself, she really was a damaged little girl :( 12 months later she's stood in a ring of 25 or more dogs wagging her tail so hard it nearly falls off!!

That is lovely that Gem got a 1st in waggiest tail and a year down the line she is such a happy dog, very rewarding.:)

That's wonderful Gem, well done Heidi:D
You deserve to be proud,it takes a lot of time & love to help a rescue gain confidence,Rubes was a terrified girl when she came to me & shook from head to toe, however theres no way i could get her into a waggiest tail winner even now so good on you, well donecl*p

thank you! i've got to give Chloe the credit for the change in Heidi though as she is the most confident little cavalier you could meet - she is completley fearless and will chase a great dane without a 2nd thought:rolleyes:
its definatley helped Heidi overcome her fears

That's great to hear how far she's come. We had a rescue girl (not a Cav) in puppy class who would shake with fear. By the end of the six weeks she was excited about coming according to her Dad.
