"Dog show win pic from a few weekend back. Ivy was a 'mostly' gooder girl that day, North Shore Kennel Club, not perfectly under control but enough not-out-of-control that the judge liked her that day.

We just practiced dog show in the kitchen with some pork chop treats, maybe she’ll remember how to walk on a show lead again at tomorrow’s dog show (ie at today’s dog show she wasn’t a very gooder girl regarding wanting to walk on a show lead, lol But a few weeks ago she knew how to walk on a show lead."
