This is me with Dad at the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America‘s National show this September in St. Louis. This was the Made in America Sweepstakes where I won the Western Division. I like the picture because it also shows Mom in the background. This is from Linda Dossett, a wonderful photographer and a Corgi Mom herself.
I won Best of Breed at the Southern Oregon Kennel Club show this Saturday… and then I got a Second Place in the Herding Group. I won Mom a really nice apron as a prize.
My daughter Darby was my Best of Opposite Sex.
At the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America’s annual specialty show in September:
This year’s theme was “Main Street USA”
The first evening event was “Made in America” Sweepstakes.
They divided the country into four divisions. I won the Western Division and Dad won “Most Patriotically-Dressed Exhibitor”.
This was at the statehouse in Idaho’s capital city of Boise… early in the morning.
I won Best of Breed on both Friday and Saturday at the “Husker Valley Cluster” in Lincoln, Nebraska. We’re on our way home from visiting Amanda, Ashley and new grandnephew Chase in Elgin, Illinois.
This is the state capitol building in Lincoln, Nebraska. Dad thinks if you’re anywhere near Lincoln, this building is worth seeing.
Dad took us to Springfield, the State Capital of Illinois. That’s the capitol building in the background.
I’m trying to tell Chloe and Darby that they’ll be OK without me. Their cousin Zeus and Aunt Jessica are coming to stay.
Our first stop was in a place called Yellowstone (and not because I peed on it).
Saw big, ugly dogs called Bison… and a geyser… still not sure what that was all about.
We stopped at Mt. Rushmore to see these four guys… not sure what that was all about either… they should have some dogs up there.
We were nearly to our hotel after five days of driving when one of our tires got flat. I helped Dad change it.
We got to the Specialty show at a place called Purina Farms… no farm animals, just for dogs. Dad, Mom and everyone else thinks this is just the best place to have a dog show… I like it too.
The show theme is “Main Street USA”, so the first evening event was a “Made in America” Sweepstakes. They divided the country into 4 Divisions and took entries from each.
I won the Western Division… our friends from Southern California and the Northwest all clapped and cheered… it was real fun!
A day off from showing so we went to St. Louis to see an Arch…
not sure what that’s all about.
At Shoshone Falls near Twin Falls, Idaho… thanks Rollie (GCH Desprado Rollie Fingers) for the photo op’ suggestion.
[Any time we're on the road, the dogs ride in their crates... safer you know.]
