The Obedience Trial ROCKED!!!

The Paducah Kennel Club hosted an AKC all breed obedience trial at the beautiful club property on Fisher Road. Folks came from at least five states to show their dogs' capabilities in the exacting sport of dog obedience.

Right here is the hardest working Obedience Chair in the United States of America!
Ginia Manchester put on one heck of a trial!

Saturday's Ring Stewards Carol Nielsen, Ruby Sisk, and Martha Veach listen to the judge with some exhibitors.
Judge Marilyn Gormley presents Paducah Kennel Club member Steve Johnson and Standard Poodle, Tessa, their first place ribbon.

And first place in another class for PKC member Sally Moore and her homebred yellow lab, Lily.

This Boxer from Tennessee figured it was a Saturday in Spring in Kentucky: he was ready for the Derby!
The Sunday Ring Stewards were Tina Sisk, Ruby Sisk, and Carol Neilsen.
Huge congratulations to Sharon Shanahan and her Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Sam, on earning their UDX title on Sunday!
Sunday's judge, Patrick Higgins, presents the oh so hard to achieve tenth double-qualifying ribbons to Sharon and Sam. Just wow.
Sunday's coveted High in Trial and High Combined prizes were won by Kathy Schroeder's Mea, from St. Louis. Turns out it was Kathy's birthday, so Mea sure gave her a fantastic present.
I think maybe we worked Ruby a little too hard?

See you at the club!
