Busy, busy, busy

So I've been busy, busy, busy! A recent highlight - 5 days in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin for the French Bulldog Nationals! Great fun, wonderful people, and Dax and Teddy were both entered! Thanks to my new (Silver) friend Michelle for the picture of Teddy and me in the ring, and to my old (Gold) friend Andrea for the shot of Daxie!

It really almost looks like I know what I'm doing in the conformation ring with Ted! If I'd just remembered to fix those front feet - he's supposed to stand straight, not assume Second Position for Ballet!

And Dax is the first sitting dog on the right, I'm the third stern-faced individual from the right, we were all praying to the stationary powers-that-be that our dogs not move. Dax didn't on this exercise, which has a one-minute duration. Unfortunately, she did on the "Long Down," which should last 3 minutes and in Dax's case lasted about 4.5 seconds. Sigh.

Looks like you had a great time. I haven't been to a Frenchie National since 2000 in Buffalo, NY. One of these years I'll get back there...

So sorry about the down-stay! It's always something with these kids, isn't it?!

From the second stern-faced individual from the left (LOL)...
They all have their moments, don't they? Gotta love 'em, though - good or bad these frogs can still give us things to smile about. Watching them all lined up across the ring is something I'll never forget (and at least yours wasn't the one doing the belly-crawl across the ring!!).
