I was too lazy to make the rest of him. Sorry, Stegg. I didn't mean to chop you in half. I saw that someone had submitted a headshot, so I figured a half-body would be okay.for some reason, this drawing reminds me of James Bond Breed:

It has been a lot of talk about the World Dog Show in the headquarters of The #Kennel-Club
. But I wasn't fully determined to enter until the an advertisement was published in the #DARPG-Newsletter
, as well as seeing all the preparation that was being made. With the other heads of TKC entering, and representing their breeds and kennels, I figured that Pro-Step should be there too. Stegg was the perfect candidate. Our three year old german shepherd stud, bred to represent the best of both worlds. Working the conformation floor equally great as he worked the bite-sleeve. The male sure knows when it's about achieving.
I opened the trunk, and Stegg's tail was hitting against the wall of his cage, as he wagged with excitement. I put on his leash, and he jumped down, immediately sniffing the air and observing his surroundings. A lot of dogs were arriving at the parking lot, and among those, a shar-pei. Stegg let out two loud barks, pulling a bit in the leash before I corrected him and ordered him to sit. His butt fell down like a sack of potatoes, but he still had his eyes on the shar-pei. Stegg had never seen such a breed before. As all his life, he had just been living around dogs that were pretty equal to his size and anatomy. No wonder he got confused.
As we walked into the big building where the show was to be at after all registration was finished, we were met by a big hall with a lot of stands. I greeted some representatives from The #Gundog-Association
, as well as a couple from The #Rifle-Dog
Club. There were a lot of people and a lot of dogs, but Stegg kept his cool, and had more than enough to do, keeping track of where I was. Finally we got ourselves into the grooming area, and I gave Stegg some water before brushing his fur. It didn't take a lot before he looked like the prince he was.
The herding group was called in, and it was our turn. Stegg knew something was happening, and made a little whine of excitement. I made him heel obediently all the way to the ring to make sure he had 100% focus. Then we were there. Stegg made a little pull, almost jumping into the ring, as we started with his gait. The herding group wasn't very widely represented, but still, it felt like it lasted forever.
After thorough examination, the judges were ready to announce the winners. All of us at Pro-Step were holding our breaths. "... and here comes the winners;..."
