4-H show

yesterday both my boys had their 4-H show at the county fair.

Caleb (my oldest) showed Dusty this year he got 1st place in his showmanship class, 1st place in his obedience class (sub novice b), 5th place in skillathon (someone needs to study dog parts and structure more!) and 4th place overall for high point handler (skillathon really killed his score)

Zach (middle child) showed Belle this is his first time showing. He got 1st place in his sub novice A obedience class!

My youngest, Autumn is to young to be in the regular 4-h class she is a cloverbud. Thet advisor decided at the last minute that instead using stuffed dogs, she had the kids borrow dogs from the older kids. It was so funny to see the little kids try to get the dogs to do commands. But they were so happy that they got to walk real dogs around!

It was a fun day but long, my daughter crashed when we got home at 5 and slept until 8 this morning!!

I said the same thing My parents never let us kids get involved in sports or 4-h activities, so i want to make sure my kids have the oppertunity to do the stuff I never got to do. I am just glad they really seem to enjoy it! Of course there is always a little complaining when it comes to the not so fun stuff like book work

I have long advised families with children to do 4-H obedience. Certainiy much of what I know about dogs, I first learned taking my daughter to 4-H. It is a great program and I enjoyed reading your report.

By the way, Raven took first in her class last week. The competition was thin, but brutal. I was impressed with the one young lady with a fairly young puppy. She scored 183 out of 200. That was only good enough for third of three. Our friend recruits members of her 4-H club to show our puppies. I think our grandson can compete in 2018.

Way to go Raven!!! I too try and talk parents into signing up with 4-h. I believe if kids were more involved with activities they would have less time to get into trouble.

Congrats to your kids. As a former 4-H and FFA member, I know the value of the experience. I also wish that dogs had been a part of the experience when I belonged. I would have been involved with dogs much sooner than I got started. Your children will never forget the experience. They will always remember those kids that they knew in the day.
