Gone To The Dog Show

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about our lazy Sunday.

We didn't really get out much this weekend since we were making sure Mom was getting over her bronchitis and it was bitter cold.  We went out to the lake for a quick walk and I was shivering in no time.  As far as I'm concerned, Spring can get here anytime.

Sunday afternoon, we found a way to amuse ourselves that everyone could be involved in.  Best of all, it was inside and we could enjoy our beds and couch.  We all gathered round to watch the Eukanuba National Championship. 

Of course, our main interests were the Hound group and the Working Dog group.  We were cheering for Chanel, the Whippet, to win. We also thought Sara the Greyhound was pretty.  Morgan sniffed in disdain at the German Shepherd, but we were also watching the Australian Shepherd, Reckon, closely. 

We were impressed to see dogs win awards for Search and Rescue, Police and Therapy work, too.  I was quite impressed by the fancy collars those dogs were wearing when they got those awards.  It was good to see that they thought those kinds of jobs were important.

In the end, Reckon won.  He reminds us a bit of our cousins, Ruby and Nipper.  Mom said those show dogs are lucky they don't have to compete with me.  I don't know if I'd like the life of a show dog.  It seems like an awful lot of just standing around, and then the judge doesn't even want to pet you.  I'll just look good from the couch!

  1. I think your mom is right - you'd be the prettiest one there!

  2. You would definitely take the top prize, Bunny. I sometimes watch the toy group. Of course, the yorkies never make it very far. Probably because we don't really like to listen or follow commands - or maybe that's just me?

    Your pal, Pip

  3. I agree about watching from the couch. I think that there are much more fun things to do than be a show dog. I cannot even begin to imagine R at a show - he'd disrupt the entire event with his antics!

    I see that Blueberry has a new cast (splint)? I'm glad that it didn't stop her from getting up close and personal with the TV!

    I hope that your mom finally feels like herself this week. And, Blueberry, you'll finally have the couch all to yourself if she's better!

  4. Bunny,

    You will always be Best In Show! :)

    Woofs and Licks,

  5. We watched the show too! We saw a beautiful greyhound that reminded us of you!

  6. I think the Real WINNERS were all in Your Living Room.

    Sooooooo did you get your E-mail thingy fixed... PeeS... I don't have need fur that Certain Product.. hehehe

  7. You're definitely a champion at the show, Bunny!!! The show is just let you know how perfect you are if you're there!

  8. Sounds like a good way to spend a cold day Bunny!

  9. I thinks you would have beat them all Bunny!

  10. Thanks for the dog show report Bunny!! Am sure you would have won had you been there!

  11. We missed it! Mom always watches it! I'm sure it will be on again though. Mom usually doesn't like the GSDs on there, their back legs/hocks are all wonky and angulated...not magestic and strong like me and Morgan!!

    And what' the point of being a show dog if you can't wear snazzy, blingy collars in the ring?? Pfft, whatever!

  12. ohhhh nooo! Your Mom has bronchitis!!?? Ugh! I have had that a few times and it is no fun and takes a loooong time to go away....I hope she is taking care of herself and that she feels better soon.

    I love how you are so focused on the TV watching the dog show, great way to spend a weekend!

  13. bunny, you look a little bit in disbelief at that winner in the 2nd to last photo.

    and i LOVE your pink animal print pillow. It's so you! we have animal print pillows too around here. what else would we have?

  14. You'd win for sure, but the petting is limited. I'd take the petting, myself.

  15. Darn it, we missed the show. Mom LOVES Whippets. I'm with you Bunny, petting is the better choice.

    Kitty and Coco

  16. The judge doesn't want to pet you? Our Mama says she'd make a terrible judge at those shows then. How could you be in a huge room filled with all kinds of dogs, and not want to go around petting everyone???!!!

  17. I thinks standing around lookin' purties would suit you...nevers mind, you would prolly take off running.
    How comes you nevers see doxies advance in them shows? Never mind dat also.

    I hopes your mom is feeling betters.


  18. Oh, yes. I think watching from the comfort of your own bed is WAY better than having to actually be in a show, don't you?

    I like watching those shows, too. But I'm always kinda confused why they don't have a Mayzie group. Mom says prolly cuz it wouldn't be fair to the other competition.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  19. Oh, Bunny... you are far too beautiful for those shows! No one else would stand a chance against you and your sisters!

  20. Bunny, They'd never let you enter any of the catagories, as they know you'd win every one:)

  21. Of course no one can compete with you, Bunny! I'm glad ya had a good time watching the show and hopefully the bronchitis is out of Mommy's system by now!

  22. Oh no your mom has the same thing that my mom had, its nasty, she needs to stay in the warm, watching a dog show seams like a better thing to watch than football. Unless its dogs that are playing it ;)
    See yea George xxx

  23. Bunny, I'll just bet you would win the best dressed award!

  24. Paws khrossed this is the week your mom feels khompletely better!

    Thanks fur sharing the show scenes!


  25. Looks like you enjoyed your lazy Sunday afternoon.

    I'll be watching some of the UK's big dog show Crufts on TV over here in a few weeks. The Lady and the Girl Of The House will both be going to watch at least one day of the show in person at the NEC in Birmingham. But dog visitors aren't allowed. How unfair is that?

    Love and licks Winnie

  26. Can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday than watching a dog show on television. Unfortunately this one didn't air here in my area of Canada. Which makes me very sad. I will have to wait for Westminster.

    I hope you are all feeling a bit better now. You've had it pretty tough lately. I think it is your turn for some good news!

  27. Oh, wot do those dog show judges know? We know who the bestest dogs be - all of us!

  28. We hope your Mom is doing much better today.

    If you entered the dog show, Bunny, there is no doubt you would win all the ribbons. The other dogs wouldn't even want to compete against your awesome beauty. But we agree with you, it is so much nicer to just be beautiful at home.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  29. I'm with ya! Spring can get here any day now! I missed the dog show, I've seen Chanel before. She's pretty. I hope you mom is feeling better every day. :)

  30. I love how you look like you're really watching.

  31. Bunny
