A hardship and the fair

Asked July 8, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

I am a 4-H leader in Idaho. We have fair in a couple weeks. Last week one of my girls lost her dog in an accident. Is there any way she can borrow a dog, at least for showmanship? I cannot see this as an "advantage" as all the other kids in the county have been training since January—November in some cases. I know that for horses, allowances for this kind of hardship have been made in the past.
