Charleston Dog Show

Hmmm, wonder where we're going?  It must involve lots of walking since I'm in my backpack.  Hope it involves ICE CREAM, too!  It's kinda hot today. 

Wait!  What?  We're here already?  That wasn't a long walk.  Why am I in my backpack???

Ahhhh, NOW I know why! We're at the Charleston Dog Show (May 7, 2011) in Marion Square. Lots of dogs all around, some really BIG ones too!  It's just better for everybody if I'm on Dad's shoulders!

Of course, it would be nice if they got me a sweet ride like THIS!

Why didn't you tell me we were going to the Charleston Dog Show!  I would've entered the CUTEST contest???  Whatever!

FRANKIE?  Is that you, dude? 


Frankie AND Puddles???!!! 

Haha! We KNOW that's not you, Maggie! BOL

This isn't your usual dog show - this one's kinda casual and fun with categories like Puppy, Senior, Heinz 57 and Rescue in addition to some of the more traditional categories like Herding.  And lots of rescue groups benefit from the show, too.

Here are some scenes from inside the show ring -

NOT cool, Dude!

Being beautiful is hard & thirsty work! Whattaya gotta do to get some WATER around here?

This is our VET - Dr. Ruth and one of her vet techs, Marshall, giving me a laser treatment.  Oh, yeah, right there.  That's good.  Keep going...

We won't bore you with ALL the pics from the Dog Show today -- we'll wait a couple days to bore you some more! BOL

We love seeing all those furry pals. How lucky that you got to go to the show. Mom loves Charleston. She is still hoping she can get Dad to take her back there sometime this year. Maybe in the fall.

We look forward to seeing more pics.

Lots of pretty dogs there (of course, I don't believe I have ever seen a real ugly one - even those worty ones are kinda cute) It has been hot, nice to see that 5 gallon jug of water sitting there! Looks like a good time!

Hey, where are the yorkies!! I saw Frankie, Puddles, and Maggie Mae, but where am I???

I am liking that backpack. I think my parents need to get me something like that.

Your pal, Pip

OMD, woz those rilly Frankie and Puddles in the fur or impawsters? That looked like fun times and I is supposing that laser thingie be like a massage, not a cutting into you type of thingie. I hopes.
