SSA Specialty #1

Post  Admin on Wed Apr 30, 2008 5:02 pm

Welcome to the inaugural Shetland Sheepdog Association Specialty!

Entries are now OPEN
Entries will CLOSE on 31 May 2008 at 00:00:00 PI Time


Show Information

Judge: Your Judge this week is a long-time veteran of the breed. As a breeder, she prided herself on having some of the best temperaments in the country, and she continues to expect that out of dogs she judges. She owner-handled all her own dogs, and so, she tends to favour owner-handlers, even if they do make a few mistakes here and there. Knowing the breed as well as she does, she also expects all entrants to be impeccably groomed.

Venue: The beautiful, bright Halstor Arena is the perfect venue for this event. The rings are fully matted, so your dogs won't slip. There is lots of space and plenty of area to groom or exercise your dogs. Vendors line the walls, so if you need some grooming supplies, that's where you head. Please remember to clean up after yourself and your dog!

Other Information: None at this time

Dog's Name:Ella
ID:82
Owner:Sunchaser109
Gender:Female
Colour: Tri-color
Class:Open Black **edited by Admin**

The sun beating down on Sunchaser as she fiddles with the leash and collar. She put Ellas collar on her as the tri-colored female started to like her face. She was not jumping up and down. However, before they had gotten in the car to come to the show, Ella was all excited. The Sheltie loved the show ring and was very professional when it came to showing herself off. In fact the sheltie loved the shows so much that she had dreams about them. At least it looked like that to her owner and Handeler.

Sunchaser had gotten Ella when she was young and had raised her and trained her by hand. Together they made a team. Ella looked around before jumping into Sunny's arms to get onto the grooming table. Sunchaser chuckled before getting out the special brush she used to get all the clumps out that had happened from the short trip. It did not take long for she made sure to brush the female every day and for a hour before the ride to the show. It was there bonding time before a show and a way to get Ellas giddy part out before the show.

Entry Form
Dog's Name: Lilana
ID: 71
Owner: Lectral
Gender: Female
Colour: Tricolor
Class: Open Black




Lectral sets up her grooming area, and checks on Lilana, who waits patiently in her crate. Making sure the table is level and stable, she pulls out the grooming supplies she needs, then opens the door to the crate. She lifts the excited dog onto the table before she can dash away, and begins going over the thick coat with a wide tooth comb. As she works, she sings softly, just loud enough for the dog to hear, pausing occasionally to praise the dog for her good behavior. The song has a noticable effect, as Lilana visibly relaxes as the grooming and song continue.

Entry Form
Dog's Name: Masquerade
ID: #65
Owner: Scullisto
Gender: Male
Colour: Bi-Black/ Painted
Class: Open Black




With the grooming table set up Masque is lifted to the grooming table from his spacious crate, ready to be fluffed and final clips made. Masque stands there almost bored of his situation. Nail buffings are not his favorite so he resisted just a smidge rolling his eyes in indignation. Scullisto cards and fluffs his tail, shaking out uneven strands, clipping them away focusing on the tasks at hand.
She is nervous, but takes comfort from Masques unshakable confidence.

Dog's Name: Jasmine
ID: S93
Owner: Nyxie
Gender: Female
Colour: Sable
Class: Open Sable



Nyx huffed a sigh as she set up her grooming table. She was way out of her league here, but was willing to trudge on and learn from whatever mistakes she was bound to make. Once she had her table as she wanted it, she opened up the large crate at her feet and motioned Jasmine to step out. Once out, the little female shook herself, obviously not liking that fact that she had to travel in the thing. Nyx rolled her eyes and picked the sable girl up and placed her on the table, the started to fluff her neck ruff, checking to make sure that there were no hairs out of place.

The Show Superintendent wanders through the crowd, watching all the exhibitors with their dogs. She leans in to whisper to Chem_Gal, loud enough that everyone can overhear,

"I've heard this judge doesn't think ANY dog is groomed properly if they aren't full of hairspray and chalk."

Entry Form
Dog's Name: Rascal
ID: 44
Owner: Ryuukokoro
Gender: Male
Color: Color Headed White Bi-Black
Class: Open Black
**Class and colour edited by Admin**




Into the grooming area trots a beautiful Color Headed White Bi-Black stud. His white coat shines, slightly damp, obviously freshly washed. His ears are sitting perky and silky on top of his head. His tongue lolls out in an easy grin, not panting, just enjoying himself. He crosses the floor, looking left and right at all the other dogs and owners. No one keeps his attention for very long, but his tail whisks slightly when he catches Ella's eye. He trots to an empty table and sits next to it. After a moment he yawns and lays down, head in paws.

"Rascal... Rascal!"

Panting herself, his handler Ryuu runs across the floor, carrying an armful of styling supplies. She looks around wildly, her eyes wide with exasperation. Where did her dog go!?

Of course, there he is, next to their table. He doesn't move or lift his head as she calls his name. Grumbling under her breath, Ryuu stalks up to the table and dumps her spplies. "You're making us both look bad," she mutters to the dog at her feet.

Rascal yawns again.

"Get up here!" Ryuu hisses. Finally Rascal stands up and stretches. His tail swings back and forth, clearly enjoying himself as Ryuu helps him up onto the grooming table. She reaches over to her supplies and spends a moment straightening them and organizing, at that moment overhearing the Show Superintendant's words. She resists a moment of panic. Did she even bring hairspray!? Oh, yes! Here! Ryuu grabs it and starts styling. Rascal sits calmly, but is clearly more interested in watching Ella sitting at a nearby grooming table.
