Rugar participated in his first confirmation show in four years on October 21st and 22nd. He actually seemed to like the "in the ring" show part of the day. Overall he seemed pretty at ease with no problems with all the other dogs - but he was attentive of their presence. He showed himself to be a gentleman and a very good Stafford ambassador.
His results were excellent for an old guy. On Sunday, the 21st, he finished second in Open Dog. On Monday, the 22nd, he finished first in Open Dog, won Winners Dog and Best of Winners, and was awarded best of opposite sex. Yes, he was beaten by a girl for Best of Breed. But he did get to follow her around the ring real close. ;-)
