Dog Show Stuff - I Won Two Ribbons!

Hello all! I hope you guys had a good weekend. Last Sunday, I competed at our Malaysian Kennel Association back-to-back dog show. I won Challenge Bitch (1st place) in the 1st ring which was awarded by an Australian judge & Reserve Challenge Bitch (2nd place) in the 2nd ring which was awarded by a local judge. WOOHOO!!! There were 8 Goldens in total at the show. I just need one more Challenge (CC) or two more Reserve Challenge (RCC) to obtain my Malaysian Championship title! Hoomie Melissa told me that I showed beautifully & was full of personality.

Does my bum look big in this picture?

OOOH & check out those footies of mine. Melissa trimmed them in a way to make them look like a kitty cat's because that's how our footies are supposed to look like according to the Golden Retriever breed standard. They have to look tight, rounded, high-arched & well-knuckled.

And here I am getting ready to go in the ring!

hey Amber,

Congratulations! That is so pawsome! Well deserved! Your hoomie is right, you are beautiful! And no, you bum does not look big. :->

Sorry about your kitty cat feet. I admit, they actually do look very nice, and at first I thought it was a photo of a big cat's feet! But, when it comes down to it, a dog just needs to have dog feet!

Good luck on getting your Malaysian Championship title!

O you are so beautiful Amber-Mae! Congratulations :)

Our human works with Golden Retrievers every day, but they are definintly not show dogs!

We are also happy, we just learnt something new today...we did not know that your paws should look like kitty feet for the show ring! That's very cute :D
