Saturday Update

We finally have a group shot with all three dogs in it!! Since I was about to get changed out of my show clothes and I put more effort into my "look" today than I do on an average day, I thought it was a good time to try for the group shot. Getting three dogs to all look happy in the same direction at once is a bit trying. It's easier when I'm behind the camera, but since I actually wanted to be in the picture, that was a no go. Naturally there were out takes and here are some of the other pictures that Adam nabbed:

Not much otherwise to report from the show. Bess took second out of two in her class. That was a bit disappointing. Bess' half sister, Mia (formerly known as Violet), had her debut as a special after finishing two weekends ago in Centralia and took Select Bitch. Very excited for her! We did get to meet up with a newcomer to the dane ring! Shanda will be showing her mantle boy, Doolin, once he's of age. Tomorrow she's entering him in the puppy match and I'm excited to watch the two of them together. She has the right attitude going into it and a great group of people to support her already, so I think she's off to a great start.

I did follow through with my plan to pull Bess from Obedience. We are still entered in Rally tomorrow and we'll see how that goes. I am very excited that it looks like I will be without ring conflicts tomorrow!! Danes are in the ring right at 8am and Rally doesn't start until after 10am. Yay!!!

In other happy news, my friend Shana put another point on her Tibetan Mastiff boy, Wally! Yay for them!! And I also saw my friend Andrea waiting to go into the obedience ring with her bullmastiff, Brody. I haven't heard yet how they did, but my fingers are crossed that they qualified!!

And now I'm off to get ready for our kickball team's double header today. Woot! We're 2-0 so far and it would be awesome if we could continue with this streak.

I hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend!!

Beautiful pictures - especially the last one. I have two furry kids and it's hard to get them to sit still while I get in the frame.

Awesome photos! You guys look like the stone lions on the steps of the New York Library!

We love shows, too. 'Cept for Obedience. We tried. Obedience isn't a Kerry Blue terrier event.
