Mount Ogden Kennel Club
Whew, what a weekend!! We traveled to northern Utah to compete with Rowan and Sonic at the MOKC conformation shows in Logan, UT at the Cache County Fairgrounds. We had some miserable weather on Saturday morning, low 40's and heavy rain, but the boys both showed well and Rowan won Best of Breed and Sonic took Select. These shows offer the National Owner-Handler Series competition alongside the regular groups, so Rowan and I had two different group competitions and thankfully the weather cleared up and the sun came out for the afternoon. Rowan placed third in the NOHS group, and showed well in regular groups but didn't make the cut.
On Sunday Rowan took the Breed again with Sonic going Select, and while the skies looked pretty threatening we made it through the day without getting rained on. Rowan showed beautifully for me all day, and won Hound Group 4 in the regular group under judge Margaret S Jones from Canada as well as NOHS Reserve Best in Show!!! Our good friend Mary Perry took some lovely photographs of us on Sunday, and it's pretty amazing to see how much both he and I have grown up since the first time we attended these shows in 2013. Rowan is maturing into an impressive male and I am so grateful for the judges that have rewarded him in the ring.
