On Sunday I drove to Rockaway, NJ to attend the NATC Zuchtschau.
Besides having with me Joeri and Tommy, the two dogs I was showing, I also took Gilda's eight pups, which were to be inspected by Anke Masters, NATC Breed Warden. Pups just turned eight weeks old on Saturday. They traveled surprisingly well (it was a three hour drive). I stayed in New Jersey until 6 pm, and pups had a ball. They were a kid magnet. Actually right now they are adorable, and people who attended the Zuchtschau could not help themselves and had to pet the pups. It was a great socialization! None of the pups showed any signs of timidness.
I will write more about the inspection when I get pictures from a friend who documented the process.
