Sapphires Journey

If your Schnauzer is Best in Show at the county fair or CRUFTS, share it with all of us. You will find show listings along with results from the various dog shows around the country. You will more than likely spot a few members in the show ring.

I'm going to snap away at the Essex walk - I can't WAIT to have so many Schnauzers in one place!

so its getting so close now to sapphire's first show on sunday! the other week i looked at her coat and the her back looked much longer than her sides so decided to strip that thinking there should be a coat coming through but nope! so fortunataely i stopped when i realised there was just a strip of undercoat with a few wire hairs and we have been carding like mad to get rid of the fluffy stuff and get that hrd top coat through, her sides are just a nice length now. Sapphire is off to Linda's on Thursday for beautifying and i shall get my instructions for preparing sapphire on the morning of the show-I have never had to prep a p/s so will be avidly scribbling down instructions. I wish i listened more to the relevant points on p/s trimming at the seminar in march now!

I do remember one bit if it helps - follow the lines between white and P&S!!

OOOh, looking forward to meeting her on Saturday. I'll be picking for more Linda-tips after your session!

Ooo, please share your wisdom! Maisy is also due to the Goomers on Thursday too, I can't WAIT! Booked the day off work to bath and dry her first, but not her jacket, only the fluffy bits.

Maisy is in PB, I think Sapphire is in MPB? Is that right?

Good luck Sapphire in her first show!

No sapphire and Maisy are in seperate classes as maisy is just a little too old for Minor puppy class.
@ Elaine and Beth, yes i'll be making notes so you can have a copy if its useful!
@Jo b, mini schnauzers are first in the ring starting at 9am, dogs first then bitches afterwards, I would imagine we'd be finished by 11ish.

Beth is your groomer not bathing maisy? i would think she would need to before she scissors her.

She probably would if I asked her to, but I'd rather do it myself because my ma is waiting in the car outside and I wanted to cut down on the time it takes to blow dry her furnishings so she wouldn't have to wait too long. It takes me forever to do it!

I'm incredibly grateful to Dannie - I literally could not do this without her!
