Blue Run's She's a Caution, call name Amber

The first puppy from the Valentine litter is out on the show circuit as of this month.
Amber is an Irish marked wavy girl who has been training as a therapy dog since
December. She also participated in a George Alston Seminar in Troy, New York in
April where we practiced our ring presentation.
Like most dogs when they first start showing, Amber isn't too sure she likes the judges examining her with no introduction. If they were to first give her a tummy rub, she would follow them anywhere! But, that's not how it goes in the show ring.
Amber has already been in the ribbons on her first weekend showing but we don't expect any real wins (points) until she learns to stand quietly for the judges inspection. She is spending a whole month away from home with her handlers Jo Ann Charnic and Adam Thistle getting the show gig down pat. We really miss her.
