Today was one that will truly go down in the history books for me. Many, many firsts and lots of smiles. First, while waiting for the Chihuahua ring time we started our early morning with a very special treat – Coffee and Beignets. OMG I have never eaten them before and as a person who hasn’t had a full-fledged carbohydrate in over a year it was pure heaven doused in powdered sugar! Thank you Jessica! You made my month!
The boys did awesome in the ring – couldn’t have been more proud! Not only are they learning how to be show dogs on the road (pottying on a wire-bottomed pen for example) but they both showed very well and did a great job. Georgie walked fabulously and was a true joy on the table. Tino looked amazing on the ground and was a good boy on the table. To get Reserve two days in a row to a 5 point Major makes me extremely proud! Sure, a 4 pointer is all he needs for his Champion title and boy it would be great to reach that goal but with the entries we competed with, honored for sure!
The fun continued into the afternoon after we assisted Jessica and the Shelties again. Today’s thank you came in a cup! A cup filled with Strawberry Daiquiris! OMG x2!!! Quite the memorable way to experience a dog show – My second first of the day. Boy I was much more relaxed! And giggly too. I think tomorrow we may go with the Tropical Punch!
Our fun-filled day led to a fun-filled night, topped with even more firsts! Like experiencing New Orleans – Bourbon Street to be exact! We gathered at Jaegers Seafood & Oyster House for dinner and cocktails and then off to experience the real party of the city until the wee-hours! Great friends, tons of laughs and amazing memories. Apparently the 190 Octane is a traditional must? I can go for that! I can guarantee that I will be coming back to this show next year – Way too much fun!
