This... was mildy anxiety inducing, to say the least. Her first show was something that she had worked hard to get to, and Sweetie had put in a lot of hard work as well - she had earned the right to be here. Even if Sevyrn didn't want to do it for herself, she owed her houlou pup that much - and then her adopted brother would follow soon hopefully. Apparently if they went through with this show the little cream and white pup would be able to grow in to her adult stage, the first step towards breeding.
"Sweetie sit," Sevyrn said as she reached the appropriate counter and the woman watching it was happy to talk her through the paperwork. Okay, that was easy enough... Sweetie was a matronne, and her show name had been decided ages ago, early on in her training - Ice Cream Sandwich. Sure it wasn't the most 'professional' but it was cute and if it suited her then why not?
Once finished up it was time to head on it... Sevyrn hoped for the best.

Once in the ring the pressure was on - the spotlight was on her and Sweetie, and they had to do amazing. Luckily the little pup had been well trained - she followed happily at Sevyrn's side to the center of the ring, where Sevyrn quickly reminded herself of the way she had wanted to do things - but what would happen if she messed this up? As much as it wasn't a good time to be anxious, it was happening anyways. Lovely. Alright... go time. Go time didn't care how much she wanted to turn around and have a little bit more practice time. Sweetie was ready for this, and Sevyrn had to be as well.
"Sweetie, stay," she said to the pup just shy of center stage and then walked just slightly to the opposite side on her own. The young lass's head tilted towards her person as she waited patiently. "Come here," Sevyrn then instructed, and as the pup reached her feet she used a hand gesture to signal for her to sit. "Good girl - now shake," she held out a hand low to the ground, and Sweetie's paw reached for her hand. Perfect - one last thing. Sevyrn pulled a little ball out of her pocket. "Fetch!" She said as she tossed the ball gently in the air, only for the pup to take off, catch it and return to drop it at her owner's feet.
After taking the ball in to her hand she placed one hand in front of her chest and gestured towards Sweetie with the other, taking a slight bow. Hopefully that had been enough to impress.
[Sweetie shows off Name, Stay, Come, Sit, Shake and Fetch.]

Sevyrn was less nervous the second time that she visited the houlou hall - unlike when she had shown up with Sweetie she had a little more experience now, and a little less raging anxiety about the whole shebang. It hadn't taken long for her to train a second pup decently well - Spot, the young patronne that Sevyrn had adopted along her cream-spotted female. Spot gsd grown over the last little while, in personality at least - he was still very much a pup but he now had a level of obedience and loyalty to himself that he had lacked before hand.
Sevyrn walked towards the main desk to fill out the form for his debutante show, and all the while Spot waited patiently at her side. Once she had finished she handed the form back to the attendant, and after it was reviewed it was time for them to show the hall what Spot gad become.
Sevyrn stood beside the curtains as she waited for the cue to advance, Spot waiting patiently as her side. As soon as it was time she advanced, pup following obediently at her side. It was time to show off the best that they had! Spot's signature move, knowing how to fish, wasn't feasible on a contest hall stage, but they would be able to make do.
"Alright, Spot - stay here," Sevyrn directed as they neared the center of the stage, and she waltzed towards the other side. Once in position she called for the pup to come over to her, and then follow her back to center stage. Once there she crouched down and opened her arms wide - the houlou pup left up and placed his paws on Sevyrn's shoulders, and the girl used that as an opportunity to show off how easily the pup tolerated having his limbs and body handled by bringing him back in to a standing position.
"Ladies and gentleman- Blinding Lights Kennel's very own Cookies and Cream," she said before the pair took their exit in tandem.
