Another Almost Convert
Greg Hlatky at A Dog's Life was stewarding at a dog show the other weekend and this self-admitted terrierphobe was assigned (of course) to one of the terrier rings!
"One of the days I was assigned to the ring where most of the Terrier breeds were being judged. Stewarding for Terriers is excellent education for the novice steward. The small entries ensure you'll be on your feet most of the day."
Yep, that's us. We'll keep ya' dancin' all day long. But it also seems Greg is actually is beginnin' to like--okay, tolerate--terriers.
"[Sparring] works when the dogs are properly trained. These feisty critters puff themselves up, stand straight and give their rival the flashing eye. A wonderful transformation as the courage of these little fellows shines through."
He's got that right. So who would you want defendin' you from invaders--an out-of-it fe-lyin' or one of us "feisty critters?"
Not sure about that "puff themselves up" crack, though.
