At the Dog Show

There is a 5 day dog show here this week and my sister Tori is entered and so are some of Ambrose's siblings. My breeder, my Auntie Karen, brought my brother Travis along too so I got to see them both.

I was so excited to see Travis. We jumped around and got very silly together and then had a few kisses. It was good to go for a walk with him around the show grounds. He is a very handsome boy.



We both got on the dog grooming torture table for a photo.




Then I got to get together with my sister Tori. We had some good sniffs together.



Tori is on the right and I am on the left. Don't we look a lot alike? Of course she has undergone massive amounts of dog grooming torture so she can be shown. She seems to like it which makes me think she is a little crazy.



She is a very beautiful girl and I am sure that she will finish her championship soon.

I was shocked to find that after making a nice fuss over me, my Auntie Karen tortured me too! Barbara wanted her to show her how to thin out the hair on my sides and front feathers. Sometimes they get matted because they get too thick. Auntie Karen is very skilled at the dog grooming torture so I doubt that Barbara will be able to replicate this. I will probably look all lopsided after she gets through with me.



Ambrose's brother Wallace did very well at the show yesterday and today. He got Winner's Dog both days. He is a handsome boy.



It was good to see some of my littermates again. I wish we could have gone for a nice run together.

Wallace is doing great. You and Tori do look very similar. I have no idea how much grooming you're talking about, but I think you mean a lot of it...

This must be doggie showing week! I just had my assistant make a post about my obedience trial yesterday. Too cool to see so many siblings do so well at a show, but we missed seeing YOU! But love seeing Ambrose on that table getting the matts out! I know how that goes!
