Looks good! How did he make out? Were there any others there. I've seen a few at UKC shows before. The grooming must take you forever.

It is hard running a dog in the mud and getting a good gate. Try to get the collar right behind the ears and you'll have more control of ther head

Keep up the good work

He's H-U-G-E and didn't listen all that well (to me anyway). He also pulled me across the ring once like I was water skiing. I definately needed my cleats! Of course, this was after he tried to pee on me. Charming...

He didn't have competition for adult male, but did for Best Male, which he did not win.

I'm sure watching me try to stack him was amusing. He's taller than my waist by a lot.

It was fun, but I'll stick to my little delicate 42 pound boy.

the thing everyone needs to know is michelle and griz really didn't know one another. as much as it was new to griz , michelle was triing to figure griz out.
have to give michelle credit though see did better than i expected- he is not easy to handle if he think he can over power you!
he knows he can't win with me so sometimes i make handling him look too easy.maybe michelle would have better luck with my new addition --peggy ann -aka annie my new 12 week old female saint. i think they have a puppy class......
thanks again michelle for showing him
jen- thanks for the pics its a totally different side of my working dog( its more of the "i'm a dog" side)
and to all who posted with all the wonderful posts- thank you!!!you all made this big dog feel welcome here

It was fun, I'd do it again. Griz wasn't "bad"; he just didn't seem to care that I was on the other end of the leash. lol

Sure, I'll show the puppy... at least she won't be alble to pull me over (for the next few months anyway!)

Oh come on Michelle, water skiing behind a dog is FUNN!! Hell, I wonder if a knee board would work?

Chris Fraize told me to tape it next time petey decides to drag me down the street bouncing on my face & boobs!

michelle did handle the dog
marinepits did take the pics
grizzly does not own the dog-he is the dog
rob is the owner-not the dog
he weighs between 140-160lbs depending on how many hot dog he has eaten that day( his record is 40 dogs) he looks much bigger but he is athletic and won't get fat nomatter how much or what i feed him-trust me i've tried!!
