An exhausting, but fun filled weekend!

On Thursday evening I headed over to Duluth, MN for a 3-day dog show, held right on the harbor, downtown at the DECC (Duluth Event and Convention Center)

On Friday, Mac, who is the tri boy that lives with me but belongs to Barb Peterson, was Winners Dog for two more points, and best of winners! He hasn't been shown for a good 10 or 11 months so it was fun to see him out showing again.

Also on Friday, Ell my little black masked brindle girl went Winners Bitch for another point! (Both Mac and Ell now have 3 of the 15 needed points for a CH title)(two of the wins need to be 3, 4, or 5 pt major wins)

On Saturday, Zoe, my blue merle girl was Winner's Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Opposite Sex over a special for her very first two points! (She has been the reserve queen more times than I care to share!)

On Sunday, Ell was Reserve Winner's Bitch.

Rayna, was able to come downtown to watch the Cardi's show and it was fun to have her there and grab some Dairy Queen afterward!

Barb and Steve Peterson (Mac's owner's) were amazing hosts and they fed me enough food to feed four families! It was great to see so many friends at their BBQ supper at their place on Friday night, despite the strong storms that hit the area. I took all five dogs with me and it was fun to be able to let them all out in their amazing kennel runs. I was also quite happily surprised to see Maggie and that she was REALLY happy to see me too! Maggie was the bitch I had tried to AI this winter but she didn't settle :(

Also thanks to Barb and Steve for letting me set up grooming with them, for supper at Hell's Kitchen (a MUST eat if you find one in your area!) and for all the laughs and Diet Mt. Dew's! LOL

Also thanks must be given to Barb and Wanda (Zoe's breeder) for their expert handling services!! It was great to see them on the end of the lead when the judge pointed to them with MY dogs! :)

So all in all it was a great weekend! I was able to come home and see the lambs right away and its so amazing to see how BIG the lambs have gotten in just a few short days!

Sabrina is coming this weekend to pick up her boys and I'm quite excited about seeing her again and having her look at the boys for the first time :) :):)

Congratulations on all the wins! I figured you were out of town because you hadn't responded to my comment about micro testing.

Way to go, kiddo! Wonderful to have your dogs win in the ring! Can't wait to see the photos when they come back!

A breed I can't stay away from

its true I guess that I would be first known for the fine wooled Shetland Sheep that I have procured and traveled across the USA and UK to ...
