So the post is a couple of days late. Still trying to recover! I always forget how much it takes out of you and the dogs when we stay out-of-town and even more since this was a 3 day show with REALLY long ring side times. Like 3+ hours every day! Glad I took a chair to ring side.
The show was a bust when it came to our crazy bunch. We did manage to get Polly to change from sloth speed to turtle speed. According to Mark she now has a theme song. She will always “Fly Like a Turtle.” Still trying to figure out what the judges saw in the dogs they picked. I guess I will always ponder that one.
Had a great time just sitting around shooting the breeze. I still can’t get over the fact that last year when we attended this show we didn’t know ANYONE, well besides Liam’s breeders, Kim and Leo. I remember being introduced to Kim and Mark and then turning around and seeing the whole Cardigan campground area. I was blown away by how many people there were. At that time I wasn’t reading blogs either. So this year to go back and know so many people (maybe really not know them but blog know them) was very odd. Jason also had a whole bunch of people he knew from the trip to Idaho last year. I felt like I might have actually belonged this year, whereas last year I felt like an intruder. I can only thank those people close to us for that feeling (Kim & Leo, Kim & Mark, Nancy, Paul, Denise, and so many more). Still not quite believing it.
Couple lovely pictures taken by Kim and Mark of the kids throughout the weekend. Enjoy!
