New York and Westminister 2006

Robert and I are headed to the Big Apple to watch the dog that we co-own with Ruth Ann and Danny Ford, CH Forevr TX Redheaded Stranger, Willie, strut his stuff in the BIG SHOW. But first I am going to help Ruth Ann show a puppy at the Papillion Club specialty show held on Saturday and Sunday. I am going to show Forevr Rock Hudson in the 9-12 month puppy classes. We certainly had a good time and on Sunday we won our class and WINNERS DOG for 4 points. Mr William Cunningham was our judge. Sunday was also the day of the BLIZZARD OF 06'. The blizzard deposited 27 inches of snow in Central Park, it brought the city to a stand still, was at times white out conditions and there was thunder and lightning. What a day! I have never seen so much snow in my whole life, being a Florida girl and all. I wanted to make a snowman but the snow was too dry. It was beautiful.
The next day was Monday, time for Willie to do his thing. He went out there with the big boys, dogs much older and seasoned than he and with a handler he had just met. But he didn't care, he loves to show and he did. We'll have to wait for another year or so to get in the ribbons but he really strutted his stuff. It was so thrilling to be there and watching a dog that I had finished and co-own. Next time I'm going to be out there with a dog.
