Elora Gorge Show: Damn Carpets!

As you can see from the title of this post, day two of the show didn’t go any better.

canyon and Huib looked amazing together, but Canyon did his little canter looking thing again on the “down and back”.

We’ve assessed things and observed the other dogs, and have come to the conclusion that it is the carpeting. We’re not sure what is on the carpets, but the dogs are all having trouble with keeping their footing and one of the handlers even got close to taking a tumble.

canyon’s co-breeder came to watch him show today and was giving Huib tons of compliments. She even said that he looked as though he’d been showing for years!

We’ve picked up some Vaseline for Canyon’s paws to hopefully give him a little more grip on the carpets.

Maybe third time’s a charm?
