This weekend is the Mt. Bachelor Kennel Club Dog Show, which Hunter and I will be in attendance for. We are ready to have a fun weekend in the scorching heat. I heard 100 degrees here in Pasco, I am sure it will be just as hot in the middle of nowhere Oregon too. The blazing heat is doing nothing for Hunter's coat. Apparently, he thinks he doesn't need to wear a 'coat' in the middle of June.

Back from a very hot Redmond, OR! Jesse went with me and we camped in a tent on site. It was all we could do to keep the dogs in the shade. We were very lucky to have a couple trees around us.
Hunter was a wee bit tired and unmotivated Saturday for the show. He doesnt like showing in grass because grass is for playing in, and sniffing, and playing in... He still went Reserve Winner's Dog under Judge Arley Hussin. Not too shabby.
Sunday June 29th, 2008 Hunter went Best Of Breed, Best Of Winners, and Winner's Dog over two other nice dogs for a point. He seemed to be much more focused and happy. Plus, it was earlier in the day and cooler. The judge was Col. Harold Brizee. He was also the Herding Group Judge, but there were a lot of other more mature dogs that were awarded in the group ring. He still looks very puppyish. Dayl, Terry, Jesse and Debbie our friend with Bernese Mt Dogs stayed for group to cheer us on.
Here are a couple pics from the weekend.
