Thursday 24 March was 'Saluki Day' at the Sydney Royal Easter Dog Show. Also held on the same day in the same place was the Saluki Club of NSW Championship Specialty Show. While Sookie had not been entered in the Royal, she was entered in the Saluki Specialty so the two of us accompanied her Breeder, Anita Langford (and Bear Paintain) along with their Salukis for the day. Sookie was a very good girl for her first 'major' show and took all the new sights and sounds in her stride. She loved meeting people and was all fired up and eager for a big play by the time the Saluki specialty came around in the afternoon. While we waited outside the ring for her turn she had a great time playing with her toy rabbit. She was a very good girl in the ring too, and behaved very well for such a baby, being awarded Best Baby Puppy in Show. Needless to say she slept very well on the car ride home!
