The Dog Show

Here are some pictures I took at the dog show I went to yesterday.  I had a great time and got to meet and pet lots of awesome pups!  Unfortunately, I met too many to take pictures of every single one, but here are the ones I did get pictures of:

This little Boxer dude was such a sweet boy!  He gave my sister (Riley’s Aunt Baddy) and I both kisses on the lips.  He is 6 months old and was competing in Rally.  Reminds me of Miss Maggie Mae!

This is Scarlett.  She was also super sweet!  She is a Leonberger.  I don’t think Riley and I have any Leonberger friends in Blogville, so if you know of one, let us know!

Sweet Scarlett again. She was showing in Conformation.

This big guy, a Mastiff, was competing in Rally.  I didn’t get to pet him, but his paws were ginormous!  Reminded me of none other than Mr. Light on His Feet, Mango Man!

This Newfie girl was such a love bug!  She kissed my face and got half of my face and the bag I was holding wet!  She was competing in Conformation.  She reminded me of Remington and Sherman and Leroy (who had a good weekend at his dog show!).

This was the Non-Sporting Group competing.  I was able to identify all the different dog breeds, so I was pretty pleased with myself!  🙂

This is a really blurry picture, sorry…but this girl is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.  I had never seen one in “real life” before.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to pet her.  From what I understand, this is a pretty rare dog breed in the US?  I might be wrong about that, who knows…

These were the fabulous dogs getting their awards in Rally.  Unfortunately, we got there after they had already finished competing, but we did watch the awards ceremony.
Anyway, it was a fun day and I look forward to attending again next year!  Have a safe weekend, everyone!

Too Hot (and Too Early) to Play

Riley is zonked out beside me on the couch taking her morning nap.  It’s going to be almost 90 degrees today.  It was 95 yesterday!  We stayed inside most of the day.

I am planning on dragging taking my sister with me to a big dog show that’s going on this weekend in town.  The Langley Kennel Club and the Gloucester Kennel Club put this show on every year at the local Convention Center.  I went a few years ago, but only had time to browse, so I spend on planning a little bit more time there this year.  Unfortunately, dogs that aren’t competing in the show can’t attend, so Riley will just have to continue her napping.  The Australian Cattle Dogs are showing tomorrow morning, and not today, but I’m hoping to get lots of pictures of other dog breeds today.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!  I might head up to Busch Gardens one day this weekend (with about 87,000 other people, no doubt…), and am planning on hitting up some yard sales tomorrow morning.  Also, I think I’m going to be babysitting for my friends while they go to a movie.  (It’s all good, I like to babysit this little girl!).
