How was your weekend?

For Thanksgiving weekend Magic & I went to Yuma to spend a few days at a dog show. Magic came home proudly with his AKC championship! He finished his title on Sunday with his third major win and many adoring fans ringside. He turns heads wherever he goes it seems. Some of the adjectives this weekend from fans and judges - beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, correct and amazing! Yes, he decided to not just walk, but STRUT his stuff all over the show ring!

Thank you to Sandra "Goose" Allen for awarding a second major to Magic and to Margo Klingler for Magic's third and title-completing major win!

Magic is the first dog I owner/handled completely from the bred by exhibitor class from start to finish and as such I will be awarded a special medallion for this achievement by AKC. This title is very important to me. Magic is my seventh overall finished AKC champion Shih Tzu and my fifth home-bred champion.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend - we sure did!

This made me smile

I had kind of a crummy day today - it wasn't the total disaster kind of day - it was just one of those days where no matter what I did I couldn't get anything done and more stuff got piled on. And of course everyone wants everything NOW. Plus there was another personal drama going on that just didn't help. But home I came to wonderful pictures of Jack - he's such a pretty puppy. Doesn't he just look great? His cute little face made me smile!
