Following many months of deliberation we entered Riley in a Labrador Breed Show (LCD Speciale Rasse Ausstellung) today in Erftstadt-Gymnich, close to Cologne. We have only been to one show to see Riley’s breeder Dagmar Eck in action and have no idea what to expect but since so many people are convinced that he is an excellent example of what a Labrador should look like we though we would give it a go.
Elle took the lead and showed Riley before Mrs. Margaret Gawthorpe (UK). With great feedback Riley was awarded his first rosette for 3rd place with and Excellent rating.
Although we were all apprehensive and Riley was more interested in interacting with the competition we had a great day and are very proud of our little boy. Who know where this may lead with a little bit of work and training.
