Kennel Name: Breezy Daze Kennel Houluh Image: What is your Houluh's Sex?: Matronne Desired Show Name: Pauline's Surprise
Fiera sauntered into the contest hall, looking over dressed, as if she were a C-list celebrity pretending that she was trying not to attract attention, with a wide brimmed hat and overly large sunglasses with perfect lipstick. So, like usual then. Trotting beside her was Pauline, her most precious young houluh, with a collar around her neck that Fiera liked to pretend was diamond but each 'gemstone' was probably made of rarely mined, expertly cut plastic with shiny bits glued to it. Fiera knew that a houluh's debutante show was one of the most important moments of their life, and she wanted her little matronne to look the part. Of course, it was difficult to look rare and graceful while filling out paperwork, but if anyone could come close, it would be Fiera Ferella. After a few minutes, she finished signing the last sheet with a dramatic flourish, and snapped her fingers to summon her houluh. It was time.

"Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you all- Pauline's Surprise!" Fiera announced, to a panel of judges and a small audience of other houluh afficionados. The spotlight was on her for the time being (as was Fiera's desired natural state), but soon it moved to the opposite end of the ring where a young, mostly white houluh stood, ears and tail at attention. "Pauline!" Fiera called, getting her attention. "Come here, love!" She said, and Pauline immediately dashed across the ring.
On the way to her owner, Fiera had made sure to set up several hurdles, at least three in a row. "Jump over, Pauline!" Fiera ordered, and Pauline effortlessly leapt over them, bouncing as if she were part rabbit. The audience gave a brief applause as she skidded to a stop near Fiera's ankles. Fiera gave her a brief pat on the head, and then held a finger up. "Alright, now sit. And stay there, Pauline." She said gently, and backed away from her pup. Pauline did indeed sit and stay, looking at her owner curiously. Then, Fiera pulled out an object from her jacket- a bright pink frisbee. Pauline couldn't help but perk up at the sight of it. "Now... catch!" Fiera cried, and threw it as hard as she could.
Pauline was off like a shot, racing across the show floor, and launched herself upward at the last second to snatch the frisbee out of the air. She dropped it as her owner approached, clapping for her own pet, and the humanish picked it up to put it away again. "Everyone- that was Pauline's Surprise!" She laughed, and whispered to Pauline to follow her as she sauntered offstage.
[Pauline uses Name, Come, Jump Over, Sit, Stay, Catch, and Follow.]

Kennel Name: Breezy Daze Kennel Houluh Image: What is your Houluh's Sex?: Patronne Desired Show Name: Opalescent Wind
Her second houluh, her second debutante show. Fiera knew what to expect now that she had shown Pauline, but one could never be too sure at these. Still, she was absolutely sure about Opal's abilities- he had come a long way from the goofy pup she started training at first. Granted, he was still a goofy pup... but at least now he was a pup that could follow orders. She'd no doubt be able to wow the crowd with his working houluh tricks. Even now, he sat at attention, casting his gaze around at the passersby. To his credit though, he didn't bark and there was nary a single tail wag from him as she filled out the paperwork. The minute she was done however, he perked up again, his tongue lolling out. She sighed at him affectionately. "Come on pup- let's show you off before you lose what's left of your patience."

With all of the boring parts out of the way, time rushed by until it was Fiera's turn to debut her latest houluh to the world. So she sauntered on stage, waving to the audience. "Ladies and gents... Opalescent Wind!" She said with a wave, turning to her houluh. "Opal! Come here!" She said, and the houluh bounced over effortlessly, with no hesitation. On the way there, he passed several suspiciously placed barricades, weaving between them effortlessly.
"Ok, now stay..." She said, backing away from her houluh. He sat there obediently, listening for his next order as she got out a shiny silk ball. "And... cover!" She said, tossing it at him. Quick as a flash, Opal dodged out of the way, diving behind one of the barricades. Fiera left it a moment, letting the audience soak it in... before clapping and releasing Opal from the trick. "That a boy, Opal!"

Kennel Name: Breezy Daze Kennel Houluh Image: What is your Houluh's Sex?: Matronne Desired Show Name: Earl Grey Bubble Tea
Bubbles had been... well, frankly exhausting to train. Her boundless energy was an excellent trait to have in a houluh, but her absent-mindedness and tendency to get sidetracked was a little more frustrating. Still, Fiera had managed to teach her above and beyond what she was expecting, and with a little love and patience the houluh had come a long way. Now that they were done and here, Bubbles was an impressive sight. She had a beautiful, eyecatching coat with a rare grey coloration and beautiful dapples of white. Even as Fiera filled out the paperwork for the show, the young matronne was catching eyes. By the time that it was her turn to debut, Fiera was sure that there was already quite a buzz- or perhaps that was just the starstruck humanish's wishful thinking. Regardless of what peoples' opinion of Fiera and her pet actually was, she couldn't see Bubbles's debutante show going anything but well.

Once they had the go ahead, Fiera sauntered onto the stage with her characteristic flair. "Ladies and gentlemen, do I have a treat for you today! Behold- Earl Grey Bubble Tea!" She cried, gesturing to where Bubbles was waiting offstage. "Bubbles! Come, girl!" She said, and the young adult houluh came flying out from backstage. "Good girl!" Fiera said as she reached Fiera's side. Not wanting to waste any time, Fiera snapped her fingers and began running alongside the show ring on the audience's side. "Bubbles, follow!" She said, and Bubbles ran after her. "Heel!" She called, and the houluh sped up to run at Fiera's side, keeping pace perfectly with her owner. Murmurs of approval rang from the audience.
When they returned to the center of the ring, Fiera gave her another order while standing in front of her. "Bubbles, stack." She said, and the houluh rearranged herself into the perfect show position, standing tall and proud so the audience could see her fine musculature and perfect shape. With that out of the way, Fiera nodded with satisfaction and waved to the audience. "Thank you, everyone! You've been lovely! I hope to see you all soon!" She said, trotting off stage. Another debutante show, gone off without a hitch.

Kennel Name: Breezy Daze Kennel Houluh Image: What is your Houluh's Sex?: Patronne Desired Show Name: End of the Day
Fiera and Sundown were finally ready for his debutante show. It felt like it had taken ages to finish his training, most likely due to that little kerfuffle with teaching him “at ease” (which one would think would be a perfectly easy trick to teach but apparently not.) Now they were ready though, and Fiera could tell that he was turning heads even while she filled out the paperwork, whispering amongst themselves. He was a blessed houluh after all, with the rare markings and long fur that that entailed. Even his demeanor was regal, holding his head high as he cast his gaze around the houluh hall. Thankfully Fiera had trained him to be well socialized, so she didn’t have to worry about him getting distracted by them. Finally she finished the last bit of paperwork and picked up Sundown’s leash, leading him toward the arena where his debutante would begin.

“Ladies and gentlemen! Presenting... Breezy Daze Kennel’s End of the Day!” Fiera said, gesturing off stage with her signature grace. Then, more quietly, she called out “Sundown! Come!” The houluh trotted out effortlessly, his long, soft fur trailing out behind him. “Behold, a blessed houluh- the most finely bred houluh our kennels have bred yet!” Fiera said, knowing full well that by “our” she meant “my”, but talking in plurals sounded more refined. She snapped her fingers and gave a couple of quick commands in succession. “Sundown, follow!” She said, and as he walked after her as she began to move, she picked up the pace and gave the second command. “Trot!” Sure enough, he began trotting after her, his fur flying out behind him like fancy ribbons for the audience to see. A murmur of approval ran through the crowd as Fiera slowed to a stop. “Sit.” Fiera said quietly as she gave her own bow and her houluh sat politely for the crowd. To her delight, Sundown’s debutante had gone off without a hitch.

Kennel Name: Breezy Daze Kennel Houluh Image: What is your Houluh's Sex?: Matronne Desired Show Name: Wild Blue Yonder
After months of training, Skyler- or should she say, Wild Blue Yonder- was finally ready. The houluh didn’t even seem to care as people passed by them as Fiera filled out the paperwork, scanning the room with her trademark vacant stare. Whatever the houluh was thinking about, Fiera couldn’t fathom. What she did know though was that Skyler was going to perform perfectly today. All that training hadn’t gone to waste. She knew that the pup would snap to attention as soon as Fiera gave the word.
Her looks were nothing to sneeze at either, of course. The houluh’s slight movements made her well brushed pelt glisten under the blazing lights of the contest hall, reflecting off of her soft white fur. Even as she was filling out the paperwork, Fiera was convinced that her pet was attracting envious glances. And they should be envious. After all, the houluh of Breezy Daze Kennel were, as always, a cut above the rest.

“Ladies and gentlemen, so wonderful to see you all again!” Fiera addressed the crowd, her bright pink dress sparkling in the spotlight with thousands of twinkling sequins. A small net was next to her, like you’d use to play soccer with children, and she held a hoop and a ball in her hand, the same color as her dress. “Behold, the latest gem of my kennels- Wild Blue Yonder!” She called out, sweeping her arm toward where Skyler was standing. “Skyler, come!” She called. The houluh snapped out of her reverie and obeyed, bounding across the contest hall floor toward her owner. As she drew near, Fiera held out the hoop in front of her. “Skyler, hoop!” She said. Without missing a beat, Skyler changed course and leapt into the air, sailing through the hoop and landing safely on the other side. An appreciative murmur went through the audience, but Fiera wasn’t done yet.
“And now, the grand finale!” Fiera said, for herself more than anything. “Skyler! Make a goal!” She said, and tossed the ball into the air above the houluh’s head. It landed next to her and Skyler sprung into action, nudging it with her snout and paws until it was pushed into the goal. Fiera smiled proudly as the houluh looked back at her for approval, and strolled over to her pet. “Sit.” She said quietly, and the pup sunk down into her haunches. “What a show, eh?” Fiera spoke to the watching crowd. “Once again- that was Breezy Daze Kennel’s Wild Blue Yonder!”
(Skyler uses Come, Through Hoop, Kick the Can, and Sit.)
