Ruffian's Recent show in Portland OR

This is my half brother Ruffian. His mum Rosey and my mum Sheila took him to the recent Portland dog show to be shown in the ring. Unfortunately Ruffian didn't win during the weekend, I guess the heat just go to him. It was so hot, I think he just lost his mood and didn't feel like it.

Being primed on the table can take a long time. Showing is not for every Dale.

Ruffian and Rosey

The judge examines Ruffian with both hands while he stacks nicely to show his conformation.

Ruffian is a handsome Airedale. He has a good set of bones on him, and has a lot of muscle and rear angulation. His furnishings are thick and rich, and his coat is coarse, wiry and rough.

I don't think the show world suits me very well. I am way too laid back for the show ring.
I think the Otterhound trait in my geneology makes me too "duh" and laid back to be shown as a strong feisty cocky terrier.

The latest news on Ruffian. He is being shown by a professional handler, Woodie Wornall and he is now going around in the show circuit. His last show in Lompoc earned Ruffian his 2nd major. He earned 3 points as Best of Winners. He now has a total of 7 major points. He is now residing in CA with Woodie until he gets his CH and then he will return home to Seattle.

Another news about my full littermate Sister, Foxxi Roxxi. She is now expecting a litter of pups, and she is in labor today. The pups are going to come out anytime now, and we're all waiting for the exciting news of her delivery. I am wishing my sis Roxxi and healthy and smooth delivery. I hope her owners are happy and all will be well.
