Well this was interesting, getting Cocoa his Debutante show. She wasn't sure about it, but at least it was something that had to happen, so... it would happen, she knew. It had to be there today, or else it was never getting done, she knew. Jack sighed a little and started to fill out the forms with Cocoa sitting at her feet. It wasn't like he was super well trained, not like Luna or Red, but it was enough and that was fine. Sighing a little, she wished it was done and over with, but there wasn't much else she could do for anything at the moment aside from lead him into the arena. It wasn't quite their turn yet, which was fine, and the woman smiled a little at the anxious pup at her feet. She could tell he was ready to get whatever this was done and over with as well.
Alright, time to head in, she figured with a little smile on her face as another owner and Houluh made their way out of the arena. She stepped in and ordered Cocoa with her before they got to the center. Time to show off just a little bit, nothing too spectacular at this point. "Cocoa!" Jack said, handing him a treat when his eyes were fixed on her, waiting for a command. Grinning, she walked away and snapped her fingers, and the pup automatically went over to her as soon as quickly as he could, earning another treat for a job well done. The woman put her hand out to him, palm outward and facing him, and then walked off. Cocoa stayed in place and panted a little, he was worked up from the bath earlier still it would seem. Jack smiled and nodded before snapping her fingers again and he came over to her, as she wondered what would happen as they left the arena.

Considering she was working mainly with Houluh right now shouldn't surprise anyone who knew her, she figured, but it might surprise people what she had named this one. Heathen was his name, and he acted like it a lot of the time, and still she pressed on with him. Yawning a little, she took the freshly washed pup and registered him at the Contest Hall, time to get his show going and all that, though she wasn't sure what to do with him just yet. It was fine at the moment, he knew several fighting moves at this point, but she was sure headbutt wasn't going to be the right one to show off tonight, his head still hurt a bit from training. Jack rubbed his back for a moment and told him he was going to do great, and the woman stood back up and squared her shoulders before they headed in, her again, him for the first time. All would be well, but that was the hard part.
Right, time to show off and she knew that this was going to be the last bit until he was bred, unless she figured they were going to work a little bit more in the Park or something. She bet they would, but didn't know when it was going to be at this point. Jack looked at him as they reached the center of the ring, a few logs around them, and then said his name, "Heathen." The pup wagged his tail for a moment from side to side and stared at her, showing that he knew how to concentrate whenever his name was said. Good, first things first. Now time for some fighting moves, she supposed. "Bite!" Jack told him, pointing at one of the logs, and the pup lunged forward and bit the log as hard as he could, before turning and clawing at another when she gave him the command, "Claw!" That was good enough for her at the moment, so she bowed and stepped back once more.

Taking a deep breath, Jack realized she wasn't really ready for this at all. More of her Houluh were growing up, and it was getting hard to keep track of them. Of course Light had been ready for awhile now, but it just took this long for her to get this done. Giving a little frown, she looked down at him wagging his tail and beaming at her for a moment, the slightly larger than most Houluh pup was clumsy looking enough for most people, but it didn't work like that, she knew. Pushing a hand through her hair, she hoped that things would work out for them after a little while, but wasn't too sure that was going to happen. After all, it didn't matter what went on as long as it went well, right? Shaking her head, she stepped forward, into the light, motioning for Light to follow her eventually, though it might take a moment or two for him to get adjusted to the brightness.
Kro was inside of the ring, having gotten special permission for this for one of his abilities. She knew it was a stretch, but she didn't have much of a choice at this point. Motioning for the pup to follow her, she announced to the crowd, "He doesn't even flinch when coming close to this intimidating creature!" Kro snorted at that and she ignored him, "He doesn't have any issues with being frightened by something as large and terrifying." Then, turning to him, she threw a handful of rocks that had been hidden behind her back for this occasion and he dodged them all without even being told. "See? He doesn't even need a command, he can sense danger no matter what," Jack said with a smile, then grabbed the pup and told him, "Struggle!" Light writhed in her arms, flopping this way and that before she ultimately had to let him go and he dropped to the ground with a grunt as the woman bowed. Hopefully that was good enough.
[Light shows off Struggle, Danger Sense, and Hardy]

She had to admit, she was a little nervous about this show. Sure, Red was the first offspring she had brought through to do a show, but Moonbeam was generation three, the granddaughter of Luna, and she didn't know how she felt about this. Steeling herself a little, she walked up to the Hall with a tight smile on her face, sure that things were going to go wrong this time, but she hadn't been herself lately, so maybe it was just her nerves. She had to remind herself, she had done this many times before, but she had only had two Matronne come through, and she tried to remember what their shows had been like. Just the same, they were just the same... Swallowing, the woman shook her head and glanced down at Moonbeam with a little smile on her face before they stepped forward and wondered how this whole thing was going to go when they got started.
Jack and Moonbeam stood there and then finally started when they reached the center of the arena. She was sure things would go well, she had to know they would, right? Shaking her head a little, she finally looked down at the pup and called, "Moonbeam!" Wagging her tail, the little Houluh looked over at her and pawed at her a little, but the woman shook her head slightly before backing away from her. "Come here, Moonbeam!" Jack then said, and the pup trotted over to her happily. The woman chuckled a little and rubbed her back for doing so well so far. Just one more thing, and she knew what she was going to want to do at the moment, smiling as she looked at the little black and white puppy. "Now, bow," she told her then with a smile on her face as the little pup bowed deeply before popping back up and barking as a finale. Jack smiled and waved, and off they went.

Another Houluh was ready for his show! She grinned, she had so many Patronnes, and she was going to add another one to the mix, but that was fine at the same time. She smiled a little bit more and beamed at Arvest, he had worked so hard, and she knew that things would work out for them both. As she patted him on the head, she wondered what they were going to show off in the Hall, probably something safe for now, she had never seen water in the Hall at least, which was a shame and she knew that this would work for him no matter what. Jack pushed her hair back and sighed a little as she thought about it, things would be well no matter what, but she wanted to double check and make sure of everything before they moved on during the training. They would be fine, stop panicking, she told herself as she filled out the paperwork at the desk.
He looked a lot like his father, but there were subtle differences so she didn't feel weird making him a Patronne. Grinning at that, she looked at him as they entered the ring and she said his name, "Arvest!" The pup looked at her, all attention on the woman for now, and then she smiled again and pointed at a dummy across the ring. "Bite, Arvest!" she told him with a nod, and the pup ran over and bit down as hard as he could on the dummy, making indents and tearing off a small chunk of it. She tossed him a treat and then pointed at it again, "Claw!" He raised his paw and brought his claws across the skin of the dummy, barking once as he did so to prove his dominance of the object. His tail wagged as he trotted over to her again and sat next to her, staring up into the sands. She bowed slightly and off they went.
