Eau De Stock Tank

April 12, 2011

We are safely ensconced in a hotel room at the Sheraton North in Houston.  Last night was the performance dinner with a nice silent auction.  I won two cute crate pads and am trying to decide which baddogs will get them — it will NOT be Holmes who destroys crate pads with a vengeance.   Tonight is the Megan Champions-only match.  Yesterday morning we had a judge change.  Cindi Bossi’s parents are ill and she went home so Shelley Camm will be part of the judging panel.

I am going to find Sherri Hurst and Lauren McIlwraith so they can groom Chase for the Megan.  To keep cool, he had several nice dips in the stock tank at the herding site.  The result of the dunks and then air-drying is that he has bed head all over his body.  He is definitely now a grooming challenge.  On the other hand, he is happy and upbeat, had a great weekend doing what he loves.

Baby Lowri spent two night with G’Mas Penni and Carolyn and her Auntie Mandy.  She has had a blast chewing on her Daddy and playing on the big bed with me.  Every time we go outside, she’s tickled and talked to — people comment on her giant feet and pretty expression.  She’s such a people-puppy — I love watching her react to their advances.  TM will be back today and will reclaim the baby.  I don’t think she is irreparably spoiled.

    I’m laughing at the thought of Chase with TOTAL bed-head! Ooooh, did Susan unload the blow dryer which also held all the shampoo? I’m glad you and Lowri have had time to bond. I know she’s been a lot of fun!

    I would say a Corgi with all-over bedhead would be the grooming challenge of the century! At least the Chase-man is having fun!

    Lowri and Nick sound like they have very similar personalities. And similar feet! His are like small saucers. I told Janet he is a total lovemuffin to everyone, he’s a huge hit at baseball practice – the kids see him and practice screetches to a halt!

    Awww, Lowri would LOVE to go to baseball practice! I am SURE Nick is the hit of the season! Give him huggles from his Auntie Cheryl.
