I watched the Toy group judging on TV. But what I liked best was the Buick commercial with all the dogs barking the dialog. I started ARFing along with the dogs. Mi Popi says, "Ricky, you are making a terrible racket! This is not the way you get on TV!" I can ARF as good as any of those TV dogs.

I thought mi amigo Havanese champion was really beautiful, but I thought the handler made a tactical error by grooming him to look like a Sheatzpu wannabe (like where's the wavy hair?) and failed to bring out the playful and friendly temperament of the Havanese breed while in the ring. But that is just mi doggie opinion.

besos, Ricky Ricardo

Emmie loved watching the agility finals on Sunday! She stood with her front paws on the TV stand, then looked up and barked at her favorites!

I'm thrilled the beagle won!! A true upset. The PWD has tried 3 times for best in show and last year was the winningest dog of all time. The beagle had a mere 19 or so best in shows. But she also edged out Nathan the bloodhound who was also favored.

You just never know.

I kind of agree with Ricky about the super smooth Havanese coat. I thought that wavy was preferred, according to the breed standard.

I don't know how this picture will turn out and with yo luck, it will be upside down. But it shows Sheba watching the Toy group judging. She stared up at the big screen the whole time.

The problem is, you want your dog to be clean for a show... Especially for a HUGE big deal show like Westminster. And if you blow dry (who has time to keep them from getting dirty and tangled while they air dry?!?!) you end up blowing out the waves.

Kodi definitely has a wavy, silky coat, but right after he's blow dried he looks fluffier and the waves go away... At least until the next day!

I'm on my iPad, so I can only post one photo at a time. This is in his "everyday" wavy coat...
