Off to Superzoo!
(Yeah, some extra pictures from our Olympic trip, but it's all I've got this morning, I'm afraid!)
Off to the retailer's trade show in Vegas today, but I at least wanted to duck in and say thank you to Dayl of Aurigan Cardigans and Yolanda of Dune Cardigans for taking my two heathens, Simon and Caleb, out to Wenachee. They were so good to my boys, who apparently thought this was like camp Fun and hopped right up in her truck and rode off with a happy grin. I felt dumped for ladies with liverbait. ;) Also, there were pretty ladies in the car, which made Simon's decision pretty logical. I'd dump my mom for pretty ladies too!
They also beautifully dealt with two squirming puppies for the weekend and got Caleb his first point! Yay Liblet!
You know I have to laugh a little to myself. I think I'm still in that flabberghasted owner mode here. Mostly because I showed Shepherds, and ugh, my first dog, ten shows and a specialty before she got her first point. Totally different set of people, totally different set of dogs...
The Cardi people are awfully nice folks. So different. You'd never get a Shepherd person offering to handle your dog for you - in fact, you're lucky if you talk to each other at the show, seriously, and there's not a bunch of backsniping over the dog you have on the lead or just a cold snort, I'm afraid. Not everyone, but man, a lot of folks. I got used to it and just had fun with Ali, who didn't care what they sniped at her and was confident and had enough attitude for both of us.
So, just a huge thank you for them. I'm happiest that my dogs were treated well and taken care of. I worried, but apparently the dogs didn't care at all. Thanks a lot, boys, heh. I'll remember this when the apocalypse comes and it's down to eating Corgis. ;) Riley says that's just fine with him!
Also, the boys were so tuckered that Simon was flat on his side most of the night. Caleb was still his go getter self and while we were chatting, promptly ate my yogurt, my beef jerky, and my little thing of corn pudding, hahaha... Little rotter. Have to love him.
