:chili: OH Happy Day.. My Miss Paula in Pink got her first major at the Des Moines Iowa show this last weekend. It takes 5 females for a 3 point major in my ? 5 state area. There was a puppy, my Paula and another in 12- 18 month class and 2 in Open class. A beautiful Special owned my Sandy B. Porter was there and won Best of Breed both days. A gentleman who is getting a puppy from me in March was there and took pictures and did video (am waiting for him to send it). The pictures he took while in the ring didn't turn out. I was more nervous after we won than before we went into the ring.. I was in shock that I had actually got a major. Paula had had a loose stool problem the 2 days before this show and it was :w00t: WILD to keep her coat clean. I had not brought anything for loose stool, my friend suggested pepto bismal... so I was attempting to get pink sticky stuff down her without a syringe!! And she had to do her business in the ring right when the judge was deciding who would win in her class. It takes 15 points to become a champion and in that 15 points there has to be 2 majors under different judges. Too many shows there has not been majors like it was maybe 2 years ago. I didn't win the second day, but WELL worth the trip to get a major. I will post video if I get it.
