Well Crufts 2008 is over. I cannot say I had the most successful Crufts or even enjoyed being there. One main reason for that; not at all related to my dog's results or performance! I don't want to get into the reasons as they are upsetting but I am more upset that I allowed someone else to ruin my special day with my special dog.
Here is a video of one of Hex's runs. She did really well for her first time at Crufts; I couldn't be more proud of her. She ended up in 2nd place in this run; just behind her litter brother Indy! Damn I keep getting beat by my own dogs! :-)
Indy went on to win the Small Crufts Agility Championships! I think this Crufts was meant to be successful for all the OBay Sheltie BOYS! Here is a video of Indy's (aka The Pocket Rocket!) two champ runs. We left before the finals so do not have the final run on Video; although we got to see the run on TV when we got home! Both Chi and Indy got alot of TV coverage this year! And the Tri-Star ESSC team had most of their runs on TV also!
I always find puppy whelping stressful. I think that I could do this for 50 more years and still worry about mom and pups. So far Zen is doing well but I am worried about one of the girls who is not gaining weight. She is nursing well and seems active but had lost 1 ounce after birth and has not gained anymore. Meanwhile the other three have already gained 3 ounces each!
Here is cute photo I took today.
Thanks to Lisa for watching the babies for me on Sunday. She even slept over on Saturday night to sleep in the room with Zen and pups so that I could have a decent night sleep before Crufts the next day. Lisa has some of Chi's videos on her blog along with some puppy photos. Check out Chi's Blog.
