She was having good luck with her Houluh, she figured with a little smile on her face as she started to fill out the paperwork for Ladybird's show. The neat little Houluh pup sat at her feet and wagged her tail a little, she was used to getting dirty, it had been quite a talk to get her to stay clean for this. Jack chuckled a little, she was hoping to get all of her Houluh grown at some point, but at the same time she hoped she had so many eventually that she couldn't grow them all, was that wrong of her? Frowning a bit, she handed over the paper, patted Ladybird on the head, and then wondered how she was going to do this. She knew things, of course, but a lot of them were passive things she had learned, this might be a little tough. Oh well, they would get this one done and then move on to the next!
As they stepped into the arena, she took a deep breath, it always bothered her to be the center of attention and she didn't know why. That was fine, they would make it! Jack looked down at the pup and then called for her attention, "Ladybird!" The little Houluh looked up at her and kept her attention on her for a bit until the woman backed away, saying, "Stay, Ladybird." Such a long name, but it had fit so well, she didn't know what else to do! That was alright, she knew it would be okay as she watched the pup stay in one place. Giving a little chuckle, she said the last of it, "Come here, Ladybird." The pup shot off after her and sat at her feet, then pawed at her leg for a moment until the woman gave her a little treat for doing so well during the show. She ruffled the Houluh's ears a little with a smile and then bowed and they headed out of the arena.

Should she be doing this just yet? It was hard for her to admit it, but she might be jumping the gun a little on this. It had been awhile since she had trained him up, of course, but that didn't matter really, as long as he grew up. It would be alright, she knew, as she patted the little pup on his head with a smile. He would do alright, she knew that for a fact, but it didn't mean this wasn't the first show she had been doing in quite some time. Chunk would be just fine though, she didn't need to worry about him, and he rubbed up against her hand a little as he thought about why they were there in the first place. It was hard to come to terms with the fact that he would be growing up, but she had assured him it would all be worth it, and he trusted her as they stepped into the arena.
Right, time to go. Jack led him into the center of the ring and smiled a little, "This is Chunk!" She nodded toward the people and then looked around for a moment for a dummy he could attack. Right, just to the left there, and she pointed at it, glancing down at Chunk, "Bite!" He charged forward and bit down on the dummy, shaking his head back and forth a little in order to maximize his damage. Nodding, she then pointed again and said, "Claw!" Stepping back, letting loose of the dummy, he slashed forward with his claws with a little snarl. Very good, he still remembered what he was supposed to do! Jack was proud of him so far. "Jump!" she told him, his last command for this. The little pup jumped up and landed on the dummy, trampling it down a little with his paws as he did so. The woman called him over and then bowed to the people before they exited. It was time now, right?

Time for another show, it looked like! She had blazed through the latter part of Buzz's training, so figured she would bring him along after he was groomed to the Houluh Hall portion of the Contest Hall. It was time to show, and she was excited no matter what. He was the latest generation with a moon who was growing, or at least she hoped that was the case, and the fact that it was on his forehead made her truly happy for whatever reason. Jack took a deep breath and patted the bag at her hip, across her body, and smiled as something wriggled inside of it before poking it's head out. Vino was around as well, she hadn't had time to drop him off, but that was fine, it wasn't like he was going to do anything in the show right now aside from simply watch. Taking another deep breath, she and Buzz stepped into the light.
He was a little nervous and she smiled as she looked back at him. "Come here Buzz!" she called to him, and the command was too powerful for him to not go after her at this point. He trotted after her and then looked up at her expectantly. She had explained to him what they would be doing in the show before they had come, and he was ready for it, if a little shy about everyone watching. "Pounce!" she told him, pointing at a small ball in the arena. Buzz wagged his tail and then pounced onto the ball, trapping it under his paws and growling cutely at this point. Chuckling, Jack patted him on the head and then pointed at a little dummy nearby, "Header!" He let go of the ball and ran to the dummy, smacking it with his head. He shook his head after hitting it to clear the birds from around him, and then looked pleased with himself as they both took a small bow.

Jack gave a little smile as the pup pranced alongside her as they entered into the Houluh Hall. She was pleased that things were progressing so well, she was getting another Houluh to grow and it was going to be great. He was handsome as a baby, handsome as a juvenile, and he would be handsome as an adult. Grinning from ear to ear, she led the pup into the arena, pleased that he was the first pup she had adopted from the HAA who wasn't from one of her own litters. No, this one was bred from some other pairing entirely, and she was quite happy with the way things had turned out. Honestly if she could keep this up, then she would be happy with her Houluh beyond what she already was. Ah well, she figured as she reached down to pat him on the head, he was a good boy no matter what, and this would be the cherry on top.
Jack smiled at waved at the small crowd and then started Vino's show. The little pup stared at her for a moment but then burst into action when she started saying commands, "Bite, Vino!" She watched as he tore off toward the dummy in the area and then bit down as hard as he could, shaking his head a little as he bit down on it. Grinning, the woman pointed at the dummy again, "Claw!" The little pup slashed into the leather of the dummy hard, tearing into it and showing the deep scratches. He pranced back over to her and she gave him a treat before having him stand in the middle of the arena and she started to throw small tennis balls at him, "Dodge, Vino!" The Houluh pup shot out of the way as easily as he could, and the woman chuckled a little and then called him over, giving a little bow before they headed out again.

At least she was getting through her Houluh a little easier at this point, that was a relief. Sure she still had several Houluh back at the Kennel who needed to grow and do their show, not to mention their training, but it was alright in the long run. Jack pushed her hair back with a little smile as she looked down at Phantom, wondering what was going to happen to her when she grew up. It was alright no matter what, she would be happy with Phantom no matter what happened, she had worked hard and the prim pup was settled by her side for now, her legs powerful and strong from all the running she had done over the course of her training. All she knew was that this was the moment they had been working toward.
Jack patted the pup on her head with a smile and then brought her into the light after a moment of breathing. She knew that things would be fine in the long run, but for now, she was always nervous whenever this happened. "Run, Phantom!" she said, and the Houluh trotted off into a run, her legs pumping against the floor of the Hall as she ran around in a circle. It was fun, she had to give it that much, "Now Dash!" Phantom skidded to a stop and then shot off into another direction with a bark. "Charge, Phantom!" Jack told her, pointing at the dummy that was always set there in the process. Smiling, she watched as the Houluh pup charged toward the dummy and then skidded to a stop before hitting it. She didn't know how to headbutt like some of her others at least, but this was good enough, she thought with a little bow.
