Once we had rejuvenated a little bit, we went over to Georgia and Jack's to see the litter of puppies that she has right now. They were still pretty young so we didn't touch them, but we did get to soak up the adorable cuteness!! It totally gets my puppy fever going! From there it was off to dinner at a Mexican restaurant in the lovely town of Lynden.
Once we got back to the fairgrounds we took the dogs out for a little potty walk just down the street.
After checking a few things out we headed back to the fairgrounds where we heard a band of some sort starting to warm up in one of the fairground facilities that wasn't being used for the dog show. As the night wore on, it was apparent that this "little" party was going to be going on for a while as people were coming in and leaving pretty continuously. At about 10:30pm someone called the local police to monitor the noise level, which was VERY loud. Nothing much really happened after that. I concked out a while the party was still going and woke up at about 5:30am when the rest of the RV area was seeming to wake up. Which meant that OUR dogs thought it was wake up time as well!
Danes were in the ring at 11:00am on Sun. We did win our class today, but didn't do anything after that. I did get many compliments on Bess and I'm confident that I'm not totally ruining our chances by handling her myself!:O) I learn something at each show regardless of whether we win or not, so there's always something good that comes out of it.
Then it was back to the trailer to load everything up and start the trek back home! Thankfully the traffic was MUCH better and we made really good time. Heffner was happy to see both of us back and now I just need to finish unpacking and get ready for work in the morning. Ug! It's really hard for me to come back to the "real world" after spending a weekend away at a dog show. You get so wrapped up in and you're talking about dogs the whole weekend and trying to learn things and figure out why things turned out the way they did. And then I have to have such a change in mind set to go to work! Sigh.......if only........:O)
