Ready loves the camera and is always ready to "strike a pose."

Ready showed she was ready to win her first time in the ring at exactly six months of age during the Lone Star State Classic Dog Shows in Dallas July 4-7, 2013:  On July 4, Ready was Winners Bitch from the Bred-by class for her first points at the North Texas Terrier Club show under Breeder/Judge Patty Keenan, and was Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for her first major win on Sunday (July 7) at the Trinity Valley Kennel Club show under Judge Clay Coady.  Ready earned a Reserve major win along with a four-point major at the Cottonland Cluster of dog shows in Monroe, Louisiana during Labor Day weekend 2013.  At 9 months of age, Ready then flew with Paula to the West Highland White Terrier Club of America show in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, on October 6, 2013, where she won the large, competitive Bred-by-Exhibitor class under Judge Kathleen Grosso.  Ready then completed her CH requirements with a three-point major by taking Winners Bitch from the Bred-by Exhibitor class at the Stephenville KC of Texas show on Thursday, October 16, 2014, under Judge Wendy Maisey.

Ready earned her first Grand Champion major by going Select Bitch at the Stephenville KC of Texas show on Friday, October 17, 2014, under Judge Gale Young, then repeated that performance at the Bell County KC show on Sunday, October 19, 2014, under Judge Annemarie Moore (both wins included defeats of another CH).  Ready's next Select Bitch wins were under Judges Richard William Powell and Janie Bosek the weekend of the Cypress Creek Kennel Club shows on November 8 and 9, 2014.  Ready came away with Best of Breed wins at the Brazoria Kennel Club shows on November 15 and 16, 2014, under Judges Betsy Dale and Julie Felten, then earned more Grand Champion points with Best Opposite wins on April 11 and 12, 2015, at the Austin Kennel Club shows under Judges Charles Trotter and Anne Barlow, and again on April 25 and 26, 2015 at the Baytown Kennel Club shows under Judges Beth Sweigart and Peter Green.

Ready was ready for a big finish to earn her Grand Champion title by taking on the huge competition at the Houston World Series of Dog Shows.  Ready was shown three of the five days.  On Thursday, July 16, 2015, at the West Highland White Terrier Club specialty show held in conjunction with the Houston Kennel Club show, with an entry of more than fifty Westies, including twenty-five specials, Ready received an Award of Merit under Breeder Judge Tom Barrie.  Then, on the biggest day of the weekend, Saturday, at the West Highland White Terrier Club of America's National Specialty show, Ready received Select Bitch honors and her new Grand Champion title with a five-point GCH major under Judge Clay Coady.  New GCH CH TullyBloom's Camera Ready then wrapped up the weekend with another Select Bitch GCH major win on Sunday at the Gavleston County KC show under Judge Dr. Thomas Lee Hossfeld.  Along the way, Ready showed a natural coursing ability, and each time we were able to get her into a Coursing Ability Test, she picked up a leg toward her CA title.  Ready's third time and third leg for her title were on October 29, 2016, making her GCH CH TullyBloom's Camera Ready, CA.
