Elsa could have used a stool to better examine eyes, nose and teeth. Pudge patiently waited through it all.
Mama Gabrielle says,
"The girls have never done Showmanship before. I thought that they were too young, too inexperienced. I had no idea what they were supposed to do, what type of questions are asked, what the point system is about or what they're being judged on... But, thought, "Why not?" I asked the judge for information. She let the girls watch and listen to other presenters. Then we went back and practiced. After a long wait, Elsa was first to present Pudge. Dominique went next. They were both in the 1st year Primary class. For never having done it before, not practicing, not knowing what to do, how to do it, or what they were being judged on, they did very well!! Dominique placed 3rd and Elsa took 4th. I'm not sure how many total were in the class. I was very proud of the effort that they put forth. Pudge was very patient through the ordeal and long wait in line. Poor Elsa had to stand on her tippy-toes to see up on the table to check ears, nose, eyes & teeth. Made for a great picture though."
