Bossa Nova's first show went nicely. We didn't earn any finals this time around but for a rookie on his first time out he did better than expected. No hissing, no trying to get away. In fact, he was so relaxed I had to wake him up in order to be judged. I'm looking forward to getting him out again once he matures a bit more. We heard from several judges that he is developing nicely, has great eye shape and is nicely muscled (one decribed him as being muscled like a pitbull).
