2010 Hendricks County 4-H Dog Program

On Saturday the 19th, we had the pleasure to attend the Hendricks County Fair.  We went as guest of a loving family that adopted a dog that was returned to us last February.  "Gem" came back to us at about 6 months old.  She was a very sweet dog and as it happened to work out, I had just been contacted by the family that was looking for a bigger dog to work with their children in 4-H projects.  They were experienced in training and had worked with dogs before.  We were excited to attend the Fair and see one of our pups compete in the Obedience competition.  They also competed in Showmanship and the Drill team.
Now for the really good news, in the Showmanship class, Makayla and Gem placed 4th. There were at least 20 other dogs and handlers. It was HUGE! They looked great... Gem sure showed off and had her tail up and enjoyed the jog around the ring. 

We are sure proud of Makayla and Gem!

The Great thing is this was their first time to compete together and they both seemed to work good together.  Remember Gem is not even one year old.

Makayla is a very Beautiful young Lady and I know her Mom and Dad are very proud of her, I know Elaine and I are..... and we look forward to seeing much more of you both.  Great Job
