A little puppy grew quickly and genius angel has now become a disaster kid. In Japanese, genius is 'tensai' but with the same pronunciation, it also means disaster. We apply different Chinese characters for disaster though.
She has full of power, lots of energy and always trying to find something to play. I thought Leanne was a very active puppy but Janis is more than her mother.
When she was very young, I thought she had an ugly face. But after few months, she has become so much like Leanne. When I see her recent photo, sometimes I don't know if it is Leanne or Janis.
|Dog Shows and Janis
Janis and I really enjoyed dog shows this year. When I began showing her in 'babies' class last year, she was so naughty. We practiced so many times and now she can show herself much better, she is doing very nice recently.
Let me explain a little bit about our dog show system. It is difficult for me to explain in English, but I'll try.
JKC show system is a bit different from AKC.
We need 4 CC's to finish JKC title and one of them must be a MCC (Major CC).
In case of Toy Poodles, situation is a bit different. We sometimes have 'special breed system' that is very much similar to specialty shows. This system is applied to very popular breeds like Toy Poodles, Chihuahuas or Golden Retrievers and so on. We need at least 40 entries to receive benefit of this system. Under this special system, you can get CC easier than other show. If there are at least three in one class, the first one in the class can get CC. In most cases, this special system will be applied to big shows, the card will be a Major CC.
At club combined shows or FCI shows, the Group Judging is done with the same way as AKC. However, Group Placement is only 2 (first and second) at combined shows, and only 3 (first, second and third) at FCI shows. Only FCI Asian International Dog Shows has 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placement.
Janis got her first CC in April. Fortunately we had three SP bitches at a local show and she got Best Of Breed then. This was a nice win.
In October, she was picked up as an EXG dog from huge all breed group ring (over 54 breeds) by a CKC judge, Mr. Richard Lopaschuk. This was so much exiting.
Now she's got 3 CC's including one MCC, she needs only one more to finish.
