I'm getting a baby in Feb. Any advice on that? LOL.
I registered for one of those Baby bjorn carriers, someone will have to start my planes for me though.....I imagine the impact on contests will be none, as in not going to go to any....hopefully that's not true, but I'm prepared for it.
I have two Bichon Frises. Great little dogs that, properly conditioned and trained, would probably do fine at the field as long as they have some shade and lots of water. But as Mike said, it varies from breed to breed and even from dog to dog.
good luck on your search of a four legged buddy!
