and Best Trained :-)
Maddie had a big day on November 8th! She won conformation at the American Sighthound Field Association's National Greyhound Specialty. The event is primarily a lure coursing event for greyhounds, but they have a conformation match for all of the greyhounds in attendance.

This year the specialty was hosted by my local greyhound club, Southeastern Greyhound Club, and Maddie's breeder was coming from Texas with Maddie's mom and two brothers so we had to go. Plus, who wouldn't want to come visit such a beautiful place?

Also, I allowed Maddie to run a straight behind a lure.
No, Maddie is not going to start lure coursing. Now that she is officially a competing agility dog, she definitely will not be lure coursing. I just can't risk the injuries.
