A fun weekend

We had a very fun weekend ... I took Tigger's Detroit daughter, Dynamite, to a puppy match in Valparaiso, Indiana. She is just as charming as her dad. And just as naughty! No ribbons, but she was a very good girl. On Saturday, Baby  Bolt was BOW for a point, and Dory was WB/BOS for a point. Yay! We met our friend Nancy there, and her boy special, Chili Palmer, took breed. Nancy did a great job grooming my two, and I hope I remember some of her techniques. On Sunday, Dory was RWB, and Bolt was WD/BOS, for another point. The weather was fantastic, and it was great hanging with the always fun Cardi people. And now, some random photos:

Chili Palmer chilling before Group. Yeah, he really does look more elegant than that! Distortion courtesy of wide-angle lens!
A fun photo of Dory ... she really doesn't have a big head and tiny feet! Again, the magic of the wide angle lens.

So, we went to the dog show in Kalamazoo and camped with the dogs' Auntie Jean. Cold the first three days, and yes, rain, and a tornado warning even. Monday was hot, around 90 degrees. Bolt is in a gawky phase, but he did win his class on Saturday. Dory was Reserve Winners Bitch to a major on Monday. Tiggy was Select Dog Friday for four points, and Best of Breed on Sunday for five points, and is now a new Grand Champion! Henley got together with his sister Dyna on Friday night, they both competed in the puppy match. He misses her already!

Dyna on her down and back

Does this look like an evil puppy? Sweet Dyna!

We were as far from the ring as we could be and still be in Michigan, so we had the Cardi Taxi

Did I mention I hate camping? In the rain? Nothing was dry!

Rhonda the cat sitter stopped by after we got home. Reggie says, "Can I be a cat?"

Did I mention I hate camping? In the rain? With a bitch in season?
