We Survived!

Sheesh, I just plugged in the computer for the first time in a week, and I'm already a week behind all those dedicated bloggers who have posted every detail of their CWCCA specialty experience!

I'm lucky to finally be home and have a giant heap o'stuff piled on the sofa, while I wait for a magic spell to take effect that will miraculously put everything away without my assistance!

Much more on the specialty later, and I did get at least a few photos. I was lazy though, knowing that Emily was taking a zillion photos, so I hope to see hers soon!

For the brief wrap-up for the Hurrikane Gang:

Kane -

  • finished his NJP (Novice Jumpers Preferred) agility title, with a 2nd place Monday and 1st place Tuesday. This new title also qualifies him for the Versatile Cardigan VC award from the CWCCA!
  • placed 2nd in Veterans obedience both Monday and Tuesday. He NQd in Open B both days, but he did provide some comic relief, especially with his slower than watching paint dry drop on recall! He's a good sport though, and he tried his best.

Syd -

  • skipped all her agility trials because she came in season a week or so before. sigh. little sh*t...
  • made the cut to the final 5 in the brindle bitch class in the Megan on Tuesday night
  • had fun on Saturday in Best of Breed (meaning she did nothing but showed like a superstar)
  • finished the LONNNNNGGGG week with an Award of Merit at the Three Trails CWC Club of KC Regional Specialty under breeder judge Gayle Garvin. Wow, what a good girl to play in the ring one last time and do her mother proud!

Gizmo -

  • survived eating a hole in a bag of dog food at jacque's house and stuffing himself with kibble that is not on his daily menu.
  • had a terrific time and got lots of applause as the Rescue Parade participant, and I think he really enjoyed his few minutes in the spotlight with all the cheering.

Darby -

  • was the prettiest Vallhund at the show
  • had a blast wrestling with any cardigan who was game to take on the undefeated Vallhund!
  • finally met her match when playing with Justice, Garrett's puppy. whew, she was tired, and Justice wanted to keep playing!

I hope everyone made it home safe and sound, and we'll hopefully post more details and some photos later, like MUCH later, after life gets back to normal!

If Darby was tired, then Garrett will really have his hands full! heehee

I forgot Ell though- not enough sleep! Maybe Garrett could just box her up and ship her off?

Like I said about today, "Another day, another dog show". I'm glad she did her mama prouder! She showed like a pro all week!

I'm swimming in pics here. I've not even finished editing the 1st days worth of pics! Eeek. I have a feeling this'll be a LONG process!

I miss ya'll already, esp 'my' Darby (As I kept calling her). It's sooooo nice to be home though, and- hubby did his dishes! I'm so proud- it's like he's growing up ;0P

It sounds like you guys did more than survive-it seems like you all excelled! Glad you all had fun. And so happy for your award of merit-that is really cool.
