Whoo Hoo — Hello, Dolly

April 19, 2009

Today bleary-eyed exhibitors nursing a Nationals hangover showed up at 8:00 AM in a desolate-feeling Topeka ExpoCentre for the Three Trails Cardigan Specialty.  The smart folks were on their way home, but a few of us who lack the brains Dog gave geese, had entered the show.  Shelley had entered fiive dogs, including the lovely Dolly whose giant CWCCA Best of Winners ribbon had graced the Rainbow Canopy the last day of Nationals.  I had entered Chase.  Carolyn was heading home.

Dolly again earned Winners Bitch for a second five point major AND a First Award of Merit.  Dolly has two five-point majors, a Best of Winners, and that award of merit for her first two U.S. outings. That wonderful showing overcame the later return of Murphy.  I’ll let Shelley explain in detail.  She did not leave the hotel/ExpoCentre until 5:00 though the show ended at 12:20.  She has a long drive but will, I’m sure, post as soon as she finds internet access.  The Chase-man is with her — I hope for a relatively short time.  Other results for inqiring minds:  The CWCCA Winners Dog was Winners Dog and Best of Winners at Three Trails, Best of Breed was Dickens (Twinroc’s Santa Paws).  Sarah Keth’s Syd was among the AOM recipients.

Dolly is a Hunter daughter, so a half-sister to Chase, Pilot, Molly, Libby, Clem, Flash, etc.  Shelley and Dolly have earned our congratulations for a splendid showing!

    I am so proud of all of you…and I am reading enough about Cardis now that I am recognizing some names and kennel names to boot.

    NM and the rest of the world is awaiting your return and the return of the victors!

    Shelley is finally home in her own bed…will post tomorrow (hopefully)
