OMG we had a wonderful time in the heat. LOL. Thank heavens for those trees. Anyway, everyone from the Griffin Kennel Club was so nice and made the day a lot of fun for us.
Below are some pictures of the day, and a picture of Gunther's ribbons from being in Rally. There was a large amount of dogs in his category and most of them were search and rescue dogs, just there having fun and practicing with their handlers. Gunther came in third. I was pretty proud of him, for his first time in the Rally competition. Now we have plans to go to Greenville, SC., Huntsville, AL, and then in August do the big show in Atlanta.
One thing that was really interesting, is that the man who won first in the Rally Novice A group, was a man who my son has been trying to track down. GT is wanting to pursue being a K9 handler and Search and Rescue, and there he was with one of his dogs. GT and him talked so much, they caught up on karate and dogs, it was great.
One more thing. I have to tell you about RescueMeTugz. Michele who makes these wonderful tugs, donates all her money from the tugs to Great Dane Rescues. This month she has chosen the Great Dane Club of the Mid South's Rescue to donate to. Here is her links. http://www.rescuemetugz.etsy.com. If you have any questions about her product, email me, she is wonderful about getting back with you.
Ok, enough talk. Check out the pictures of my friends, their dogs and of course the Gun-man.

As picky as I am about what he eats, I felt I should be picky about his water too. I warned you at the beginning of this post I could be a little over the top! LOL.
Gunther has been being a nut lately. There is a small match coming up in a few weeks and I wanted to actually put him in the conformation part of it, but I don't think I'll be able to. Every time his behind is touched he sits. That isn't good in the show ring. But, they are having Rally so I'll be putting him in that. We have been working and working and his sits are a little faster than before, like maybe a hair or two. LOL. But, it's coming. He tries so hard and enjoys our "play" time. The show is June 16th.
