A surprise in the mail

I came home to a surprise yesterday. Kittie's invite to the PDCA showcase...or top 20, or whatever they're calling it now. I really didn't think she was in the top 5 for agility, since I barely ran her last year and then I moved her to preferred but she ended up #4 for standard.

Not sure if we'll go or not. The whole thing sounds a little silly. Dressing up in 50's attire.....conformation folks in 50s prom getups and companion event people dressed like the movie Grease (so, are the breed people the soc's and the performance people Greasers??) Bill says I should do it, but I think he just want photos of me in a poodle skirt and saddle shoes.

I wasn't even decided about nationals, Kittie runs terribly on the surface that agility is being held on this year and I definitely wasn't planning on spending the week.

Does anyone know just what the showcase entails? I see there's a required rehearsal. We've been invited before, but have never attended.

that is great! I have no idea what it's all about so no help here. I'm only going to be there for the agility trial but I do have some friends who are staying for the showcase. Clancy got his AXJ on Sunday! I really never thought we would get there and even as close as a month or so ago I was ready to hang it all up. :-) Now if we can just get that one last open standard Q to get that monkey off our backs. :-)

Woohoo, Clancy's an Ex B dog now!!!!

I understand how you feel....Abby still needs two legs in open p jww and standard. She's such a bad girl! But that's part of what I've always loved about her.

Jasper and Bailey were invited to the showcase several years ago but in was in California. Since it was in California, we didn't go. They mailed us our medals, plaques, and ribbons. Sorry I can't help you out. What about asking Cher or Ashley on the Yahoo Group?

Kittie & Abby were invited that same year. I really considered flying out to CA. they were #1 & #2 that year.
