The Best Thing About Local Dog Shows

Very honestly, the absolutely best thing about local dog shows is being able to have the wee girlie there with me.  I’m not a huge fan of dog shows at home…  they are FAR more work than away shows.  When I’m away at a dog show, the only thing I have to worry about is the dog show.  But at home?  I still have to do everything I’d normally have to do – the show is just added on top of everything else.  But having my little girl get to see me there, watching her have fun playing with the dogs (ours and others), seeing her totally enjoying the experience and taking it all in?  Totally worth it!

Here’s the girlie, sitting in the pen with the Chihuahuas (Marnie and Ned), sharing a few treats:

Who says kids and Chihuahuas don't mix? 😉
