Check Us Out!

Well, Zephyr and I have been giving conformation showing a try. This weekend we went to the Durango, Co shows. We didn't win but this is pretty cool.

We made the front page of the local paper!

Bruce Clark, left, with Tallualah, and Caron Jones, with Zephyr, both greyhounds, strut their stuff Sunday at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds at the Durango Kennel Club’s annual dog show.

Very exciting!

I'm still not sure what to think of conformation showing. With me being so new it is really hard, and it requires a lot of travel to get to shows with greyhounds which also requires a lot of money. And, although I like it, it's not as exciting lure coursing or agility (which is still a dream). But, we have had some fun. The week before Zephyr won reserve in Albuquerque which had many greyhounds entered.

We'll see how it goes.

Lots of luck! I think its great when you see dogs do both performance and conformation. Go for it all!

You and that handsome boy keep on truckin', he is too nice looking not to get placed! Congrats on your reserved placement. It is always fun to see conformation dogs that can do more then just stand there and look pretty.

Congrats on your reserve!! Conformation titles mean much more - at least in my opinion - when they are earned by dogs that have proven themselves in performance venues!!

Thanks for all the encouragement. I think as long as we keep having fun we'll keep it up.
