Gracie's debut

We went to Gracie's first show this evening. It was raining a fair bit and we all got pretty wet - lucky we Airedales don't mind that kind of thing.

Kay has been stripping Gracie everyday for weeks - finally she was ready... enough. This is how she looked just before going into the ring.

There were only two Airedales, Gracie and an already champion 3 year old girl. She won. But Gracie did really well for a first time, so we were all happy for her.

It was all over in no time and then we got to eat junk food from the food van. Here we are staring at the chips that Neil is eating. I'm pleased to report that one or two of them did come our way. So good.


  1. Ruby,
    You must be so proud of Gracie! She looks so regal!! Way to go! I 'm happy to hear that a few chips did come your way!

  2. Wow, Grace looks great. It sounds like she did great at her first show. Practice is the key to winning, so keep it up, and before you know it, Grace will be a champion and have many points.
