Kennel Name: Forestry Flight Farms Houluh Image: What is your Houluh's Sex?: Matronne Desired Show Name: Foresters' Treasury of the Woods
The entirety of the contest hall was still quite formal for her; the Pit could be that way too, but there were only so many guises bloodletting could hide under. Things like this, appealing to order and those who she would be showing her houluh off for, who were almost certainly looking for a different thing in the hounds than the satyr was.
Unsure of what to expect, Lethalia brought her Goldie to the contest hall to see if these judges thought she was 'orderly' enough to grow up or not. Lethalia shuffled up to the counter with all of the paperwork, leaving her pup to wind the leash around her hooves while she waited. Unlike her owner, Gold didn't seem concerned about the change of scenery at all, giving her owner a reassuring wag of her tail every time she caught the woman looking her way between paperwork. The houluh didn't know what they were doing here, but she was fairly excited about whatever was happening just because it was happening!
She'd checked ahead to make sure it would be fine to have a 'prop' animal in the Ring with Gold. It still unnerved her to leave Mavelle ground tied at the entryway to the ring, and set off a few murmurs in the crowd too. Lethalia managed a smile; their performance wasn't going to be worth all that much gossip!
Gold arched away from her owner as soon as they walked into the show ring, seeking out the interesting smells instead of focusing. "Gold, c'mere," Lethalia called, once she settled herself in the center of the arena. "Good, now sit," she told the pup, even if it was so hard to focus on her and not all of the fascinating smells and people. "Theressa girl," she added brightly, trying to keep a low but excited tone so her pup didn't wander off partway through. And she didn't even have all that much to do!
The equillion mare was called over, and Lethalia grabbed Mavelle's mane to haul herself up first. Gold wiggled and barked her excitement, tail going off when Lethalia patted her lap to call the pup up. Once the pup settled, the satyr nudged her mount into a slow walk, garnering a few giggles from the crowd as Gold easily rode bareback along with her owner. She leaned this way and that, paws braced over the mare's neck to wag her tongue out at the onlookers as they passed. Well; Lethalia looked around, and to the exit. Had Gold shown off enough?

It was less worrying, now that she'd brought one of the houluh to pass their inspections at the contest hall before. It'd been quite a lot easier than she'd expected, making it a wonder it took her nearly a year to return with the next pup. Lethalia looked down at Foggy, wondering where all the time had gone since adopting Gold. Surely her kennel wouldn't become obsolete somehow... right? Or at the very least she hoped her kennels' non-existence in general wouldn't make a mark against the dogs.
Foggy was just beside herself with excitement, her tail going so hard it wiggled her entire hind end. All of this activity was utterly amazing!! There were so many people whisking by her bringing along all the deep scents of the monsters they lived with, and some of them with actual monsters they brought along! The main area of the contest hall was always bustling, but most of the din fell away as Leth managed Foggy through the crowd to the smaller houluh section. A few other pups waited and barked at their entrance, but it was nothing like the main arena - Foggy almost looked disoriented at the sudden lack of commotion. Not enough to keep her from sniffing noses with the other pups her age though.
If nothing else, the halls' staff were ruthlessly efficient, the line before them disappearing into the arena doors at such a pace that they were suddenly next in line. Not like another five minutes of planning would have changed anything, but.. holy crap, Foggy was ready for this, right?

"Hullo!" Lethalia chimed as they breached the arena floor, her large voice carrying more confidence than she really felt. "T'day, Foresty Flight Farms would be likin' 'ya to witness Through Foggy Nights at her debut show!"
Walking into an arena, with a crowd larger than Foggy had ever seen making the customary applause as the newest pup progidy entered the dirt... it was a bit much for her. Foggy didn't cower or pull away, but her ears perked and her tongue lolled out of her mouth as if she were laughing. The houluh reached the end of her leash, zig-zagging a few different directions to try and get out of it, and go check out some of the stuff happening here!!
"Foggy, settle'dn," Lethalia commanded, giving the grey pup a start at her voice. More than likely she'd forgotten the woman was even there with all of the fuss, and Foggy approached her owner at a more measured lope than previously, tail wagging slowly as if an apology. "Good! Now sit, stay there," she directed, pointing to the ground and dropping the leash there. Pointedly, Lethalia backed away, still giving the pup 'the look' that she needed to continue to stay. Suddenly the prospect of being left alone in a new place wasn't entirely appealing to the puppy, but she only squirmed in place a little bit until the satyr called her back over. Leth just hoped it would be enough to prove the houluh, for her training was so basic for any attempts at showing her off. Once she had Foggy back by her side, the satyr bid her to heel, letting the pup drag her leash behind her to show off the way the houluh was practically attached at her hip as they made a small loop around the arena for the exit.
