Sorry Ricky I could only bring one since I'm flying and the thought of me not home and one not having the other makes me even sadder the being alone. Guess I'll have to find you and get my puppy fix! I'll be looking out for Kodi and Pixel too plus I know one more HRI pup coming that I'm going to hopefully be able to get my hands on!

That's too bad! I loved it when it was in NC. We were about 4 hours away. Chicago is around a 14 hour drive.

Yes, it's about a day and a half dive for us… but so is NC.

It's about a four day "dive" for us. Popi says we gonna attach Ricky to one of those new Amazon delivery drones and just parachute him in. I dunno if I like that idea!

Yeah, I don't think Kodi or Pixel want to do that kind of "diving" either, so I guess we'll DRIVE them!

We had a great time. Kodi didn't Q in Pre-Open, but he had a nice run with one little bobble that NQ'd us. Pixel had two "ring experiences", first in the handling seminar, where we both learned a lot, and she was a champ. Her 4-6 month puppy class was pretty large, with 14 little girls, and she was a bit overwhelmed. She didn't do anything BAD, but didn't look like her normal, confident, prancy little self. She didn't place (not that that means anything in the 4-6 class anyway! ) but I thought we both learned from our first experience in the ring.

There were lots of beautiful dogs, lots of nice people and PLENTY of "dog talk". The judging seemed to be quite consistent, and my "eye" must be getting better, because I did a much better job picking the "top dogs" in classes than I did two years ago.

There was, however, one very sad note that marred the week. One dog was being walked by someone other than his owner, slipped his leash and ran back from the potty area toward the hotel door. There is a fairly busy drive between the grass and the hotel entrance and he was hit by a pick-up truck and killed. Before the accident, I think some people thought I was a little silly for putting harnesses on mine every time I took them out. Afterwards, no one said a word about my extra precautions. What a horrible way to lose a beloved pet!

I did take photos, but I honestly haven't even had time to THINK about them yet. It's a two LONG day drive in each direction, and yesterday I was cooked. Today, I'm trying to dig out, get some work done, and, if I have time, wash dogs. At very least, they both need a good grooming. Neither has been touched by a comb since the day before we left the hotel!

Did a black & white Havanese win Best of Breed? Last year in Portland, OR the top four dogs were B&W.

Si Tia Karen, fotos when you have time. I know that mi amigos Kodi and Pixie Pixel on their worst day are better than mi on mi best day! Good job doggies! Was there any representation from the West Coast? Was there any other representation (with doggies) from HF?

It is heartbreaking about that little doggie crossing over the bridge. I don even want to tink about it. I'm going to pay more attention to Popi when he gives mi the "wait" command.

besos Ricky Ricardo

Yes, Papi Chulo won for the second year in a row. BOS was a lovely sable girl. There MIGHT have been one other sable in the top 7, but most were B&W... OTOH, it's mostly B&W that are shown. I think there were only two chocolates at the show, with a handful of sables a few reds and a few solid black.
