It is safe to assume that there is a field set up for your houluh to do it's work in that is set up for any job you can think of. If something is missing that you need for your demonstration, the staff will go get it for you. Feel free to use anything within reason in your set up to display what your houluh knows how to do for their job. Please remember to repost your houluh's image, loyalty, levels, and stats in your first post, and put all of the moves/abilities/tricks your houluh does in the post in brackets or parenthesis at the end of your post/s.
The one with the most points will win the Maestre di Marq and become a Salonne Show Champion. Participation prizes are earned points only. Remember that a houluh with a Maestre di Marq can never enter a Salonne Show again.

She had every right to believe they would do well in this Salonne, though things could always upset them against their favor, right? Jack smiled a little, hoping that things would work out for them as they stepped into the ring, a few noisemakers and things settling around them. A small vial of blood was pressed into her hand as well, just in case she wanted to show something off, and off they went.
"Luna," Jack told her, and the Houluh looked directly at her with her full attention. She wasn't sure what they were going to get themselves in to, but that was fine all the same. She smiled and tossed her a small treat before whistling at her and the Houluh came toward her all the same. Things were going well so far, and then she put her hand out to the Houluh, her palm facing to her, and the Matronne stopped walking and wagged her tail. "Good Luna," the woman said, then held out a large treat. Luna sniffed at it a little and almost took a snap of it when the woman eyed her, "No!" Luna immediately backed off and wagged her tail again before the treat was tossed at her.
Luna knew some pretty basic things, but her loyalty was unquestioned by the woman. Still though, it was nice to show it off once in awhile. Jack smiled and then put her fist on her shoulder, giving her the command to sit down, and the Matronne did so without delay, still watching her like a hawk. The woman then pointed to the ground and then the Houluh Matronne laid down, laying her head on her fore paws. Giving a little chuckle, the woman nodded and tossed her another treat for a job well done. She was still dainty though, the treats certainly hadn't done much to her, and she knew that the two litters she'd had with Nico hadn't done much to her figure either. Whatever she was doing, it didn't bother her figure any, and the woman was a little jealous. Whistling again, she patted her leg and started walking, Luna right at her heels. Jack stopped and looked at the Houluh and pointed away, getting her to move away from her. The lack of verbal signals would be strange to some, but not her at this point. She then led the Houluh up onto a chair and then pointed to the ground again, and Luna hopped off without hesitation.
As they worked, Jack noticed Luna was staring off at the other two Houluh. The Patronne was her grandson by way of Red, but she needed to focus on what was happening to her at the moment. "Easy, Luna," she told her, and Luna's fur smoothed out and she wagged her tail before paying more attention to the woman than she had for a little while. Jack smiled at her and tossed her a treat before whistling and pointing next to her. The Matronne trotted alongside her in a heel as the woman walked, and then she smiled a little at her. "Stand pretty!" Jack told her after they stopped, and the Houluh stacked, standing in a certain way so the woman could then show her tolerance by moving her legs around into different positions, as well as playing with her ears and her muzzle a little. Luna licked her hand and snapped up a treat after Jack told her what a good job she had done.
With a nod, Jack took the stopper out of the vial of blood and poured it out in front of the Houluh. Luna sniffed at it for a moment, but otherwise ignored it, showing her tolerance so such a vile thing, it would seem. Jack smiled and then opened up a small kennel and ushered the Houluh inside of it, wondering how this would go. Luna went in willingly, not even needing a treat to do do, and then the woman covered it with a blanket. There wasn't even a whimper, and when she finally uncovered it, the Houluh was simply sitting there looking at where the woman had last been seen. Jack smiled and let her out of the kennel, and the Houluh stretched out before leaving, showing her tolerance of small spaces and the darkness. Eyeing her for a moment, the woman then pulled out a wind up toy from her bag and turned the lever in front of the Matronne before a Salaves shot out of it. Luna didn't even flinch, simply looked bored at the whole thing. Chuckling, the woman then pulled a noisemaker to her and blew it at the Houluh, but again, not even a flinch, it was almost as though she was deaf.
The woman and the Houluh bowed to the audience, and they were done. Hopefully that was enough.

Lunar Lane had just gone and finished their performance. That meant that it was Fiera and Bubbles- er, Earl Grey Bubble Tea’s- time to shine. “Ready, Bubbles?” Fiera said under her breath to the houluh, and the matronne wagged her tail in response. “I thought so.” Fiera said, and dashed on stage. “Ladies and gentlemen, I have a treat for you today! The best of Breezy’s best, Earl Grey Bubble Tea!” She said, and gestured to the off stage area. “Bubbles, come!” She called, and the houluh came dashing out. “Sit, stay.” Fiera said in quick succession, and the houluh obediently sat and remained still as Fiera circled around her. “Bubbles is easily the most loyal of my stock, and-” She noticed the houluh moving a foot, as if she was about to get up. “-No, Bubbles. Watch me.” She said, and the matronne put the foot back down, focusing her attention on Fiera instead. “-and I am overjoyed to get to show her to you today! Even now, look at how eager she is to complete her tricks!”
(Bubbles uses Name, Come, Stay, Sit, No, and Watch Me (Sorry, I forgot to mention that one entering the contest, but she does know it.) on command.)

“But that’s not all- leap!” Fiera said, and the houluh sprung up out of her sitting position, earning a chuckle from the audience. “Okay, follow!” Fiera said, and began leading her houluh alongside the audience stands, letting them get a good look at her. “Heel!” She commanded, and Bubbles immediately caught up to Fiera, running consistently by her side. At the other end of the stage, there was a table near the judges. “Bubbles, jump up!” Fiera said, patting the table, and the houluh leapt onto it in one fluid movement. Once she was up, Fiera gave the next command. “Alright, stack!” She said, and Bubbles immediately stepped into a proper display position, her location on the table giving everyone a good look. “Behold the perfectly constructed head.” Fiera said, gently holding Bubble’s head. Then she moved to the tail and showed that off as well. To Bubbles’ credit, she didn’t struggle a bit or even show a sign of discomfort during this.

Once she was down, Fiera decided to get a bit fancy with her dismount. “Okay Bubbles, lay down.” She said, and her pet did so. “Now, roll over.” Bubbles rolled, getting close to the edge of the table. “Alright, off.” The humanish said, and the houluh deftly hopped back down to the ground. “Another aspect of Bubbles’ loyalty- she’s quite handy in retrieving objects.” She said, holding up a baton. “Bubbles, fetch!” She said, and launched it toward the back of the stage. The houluh was off like a shot, and managed to statch the object out of the air before it hit the ground before trotting back to Fiera and dropping it at her feet. Vague applause came from the audience in appreciation of her athleticism. “But undoubtedly, her best aspect is how she pays attention despite any and all distractions! Observe!”

Without further ado, Fiera opened a small satchel she had carried on stage with her. One was a large ribbon of the sort that dancers often carried, and waved it around Bubbles’ head in undulating motions. The houluh did not respond, keeping her eyes on her owner. Then, she got out a large whistle and blew on it as hard as she could. Out of the corner of her eye, Fiera could see some of the closer members of the audience flinch at the loud noise, but Bubbles didn’t so much as twitch her tail. Finally, she held up a box that was previously under the display table, and placed it over the houluh. She left it there for a few tense seconds, letting the audience begin to murmur questioningly before she whipped it off. Sure enough, Bubbles was still there, sitting just as pretty as before. “Earl Grey Bubble Tea, ladies and gents!” Fiera said with a slight bow, and waited until the applause died down before addressing her houluh again. “At ease, girl.” She said calmly, and it was as if a string was cut in Bubbles. She immediately seemed to relax and loped off stage with Fiera, leaving an impressed crowd in their wake.
(Bubbles uses Accept Sudden Movements, Accept Noise, Accept Darkness, Accept Enclosed Spaces, and At Ease.)
