On Sunday, at Old Bethpage, my baby, Hero, finally got a purple ribbon. He got winner's dog. I was tired of collecting blues, and wanted some other higher colors. And my boy did it!!!!! I was fit to be tied. The only thing better, besides winning the breed, would have been if I had been on the end of the lead. Well, that is coming. I know the first and only time I had shown him, he had won his first blue.

I wanted to have his win picture taken, however, it was so hot and in the sun, we couldn't get him to keep his mouth closed. So there won't be any winner's picture this time.

Thank you all for your support. I guess because I am new to the sport, I think Hero's first win had me more elated. I had shown him in York, PA last year in march and he was still a puppy then and then I looked in the ring to see a famous handler of whom I was in awe and figured I was going to lose. So I mentally said to myself and my dog, "We will probably lose, but we are going to have fun." Right after I said that, I felt the nervousness leave me. I remember concentrating so much on keeping Hero alert and animated I didn't notice the judge beckoning me with the blue ribbon until I heard my friend whoop out loud. I was on such a natural high for three days.

Congratulations! Too bad about the photo...I didn't get one of Jordan's first win either, but I'm sure there will be many, many more! :)

my mentor used to tell me over and over again.........when in the ring, imagine/picture the judge pointing to you for winners.........NEVER think you are not going to win!
