ARBA Hollywood Classic, Claremont, CA 15/16 November 2003
This show was such a fun time, we had to make a separate page, just for some of the great pictures.
I (Helene) didn't have enough hands for Bailey, Kikka and Maddy, cause Maddy and Kikka had to go in the ring at the same time. Brita, Carol and the Cohens, stepped in, and held dogs between classes, and Brita showed Kikka half of the time.
I am very thankfull for this, it would not have worked otherwise.
It was also great, that Carol decided, at the last minute, to drive all the way from San Fransisco with Annika on Saturday morning, and participated in 3 of the 4 shows. This gave us a total of 6 showing Farmdogs.
We made one BIG playpen under two easy-ups, and all the dogs were together the entire time, and they all got along just great. In fact it looked like so much fun in the pen, that we ended up sitting inside the pen most of the time.

"Reading The play"|
We had fun observing the ranking system in the pack. Maddy, as oldest female, was most likely the leader. She was playing with the younger dogs every now and then, and making sure she had everything outside the pen under control at the same time.
Annika semt to be number two, but between her and her litter-sister Tilly, it was hard to determine. Tilly did, however, have lots to do, making sure that the pups, Kikka and Bailey, knew that she was above them. Those 3 provided most of the entertainment, they were playing the entire time.
Taking shifts, Maddy, Vago and Annika would jump in the game, but most of the time, they let the pups and Tilly "run the show".
As we got into Sunday every-one showed signs of being tired, and grabbed naps in between, but there was never a quiet moment.
During the show, Annika, Tilly and Kikka obtained their AKC CGC (Canine Good citizen). Congratulations!
Thanks for a great time to all participants.
Sisters having fun.
