The 130th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Monday, February 13, 2006 8:00 PM -11:00 PM ET/PT Tuesday, February 14, 2006 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM ET/PT ...

AND HERE IS YOUR ADVANCED WINNER!!!

My new 3 1/2 month old puppy, Jake. He is a "designer dog", a Chia-Poo or a PooChi or a Mexican Poodle or all of the above. Got him a week ago and he is really a cutie

(I know, Semper, he ain't no Doberman but I can pretend, right?)

Awwww!!! What a precious little biscuit head, Bonz! Jake is extremely kissable and delicious! *melting*

FTM, the Eukanuba AKC show was on Jan. 14th & 15th! I was only able to catch the 2nd part on Sunday (thus missing the toy & hound groups! *sob*), but the winner was Costello, the Alaskan Malamute! I think he won 4 awards total. Pretty boy. :)

Bonz - awsumb photo! Looks like he's saying "awright...I'll sit, but only if I hafta". I miss those daily puppy snuggles!
(and thanks for the Westminster info, I don't get that 'channel' but can usually get someone to tape it for me if I know ahead of time!)
Best of luck with the future Best in Show!

Well Bonz, that is one fine lookin' lad. Hairdoo and all! I think this is one type of downsizing that the American people can actually embrace. So the kid's got blue ribbon potential fer sure! :-)

Here are the re-air dates for the AKC Eukanuba show on Animal Planet. I guess the reruns will be 3 hr. cutdowns, meaning they'll weed out what they consider "nonsense". When it comes to puppies, there is no nonsense for me! :D

Crufts is March 9-12, but I'm not sure where (or if) it airs.

I'm so glad you get some time off, FTM! I didn't realize you were working (and learning) so much!

One other thing I forgot to mention about the AKC show! One judge (I believe it was in the Terrier group) had some of the dogs pair up and face each other, nose to nose, without touching (I think they called it "mirroring" or somesuch). The announcers said it wasn't a rare request, but I'd sure never seen it! It was amazing and funny, and I really hope they didn't cut it from the 3-hour version. You just can't miss that part! :D

i have never seen the mirroring...just down and back and one more time please. i usually only catch the cut version and then see snippets of things i would have liked to watch.

the bench show i was at, so many things going at once. i was there and still missed stuff!

I was watching that Monday night (last night we were out for dinner...) and we saw Rufus. We LOVED the way he was strutting around!

So, now I want to see the rerun of yesterday! And I wish they put the best of breeds on tv too. Seeing as that I'm too cheap to get the DVD.

I'm sorry! I KNEW I should have posted when I thought about it (as the show was starting both nights).

Oh, that Rufus sure was strutting and smiling like crazy! He has that amazing quality about him that, even though he's not a classic beauty in any sense, he presents so well. :)

I'm pretty disgusted with the USA channel for not showing reruns of it, and capitalizing on the money side by selling the DVD. Animal Planet wouldn't DARE. :D

I hope your DH is feeling better, FTM!

brenda, please don't be sorry for not announcing the show! since i wasnt near a intravenous life support computer (refering tothe time i spend on here!), i wouldn't have seen the post.

thanks for the comment on dh. can you believe it? my prayers paid off and i didn't get sick- can't afford it! dh actually passed out (a real nasty flu bug). first time in his life. 3 am with a 6' tall, @235 lb. man walking into the hallway wall then passing out on my bedroom floor (falling through the door half in hall/ half in room) was not a nice sight. sweating profusely. i thought he was having a heart attack! poor dh thought it was his appendix and slept on my floor all night! my therm didn't even measure a temp or i would have guessed. so, stayed home from school one day and another from work. i will save you from the other details! :)

Oh, my goodness, FTM!! That is so scary! Poor guy. I'm glad he wasn't hurt by the fall, either! When they go down, it's usually HARD. I saw my brother pass out once, and I thought he was dying. LOL

Doh! Well, that was convenient of USA. I checked their website, too, and there was no mention of a rerun.

Next time, I'll make sure to post well in advance of the little darlings. Those Pedigree commercials ("We're for dogs...") really get to me, too. :D

Glad your dh recovered. There is some nasty stuff going around. Wish my dh would get well. I feel sorry for him but a week and a half of babying him is really grinding on my nerves. I have four kids not five! ;/

hello again, fishy! your "slippery" presence has slipped past us lately. in other words, missed ya!

well now, a week and a half! my "child" was four days at the most, but improving by day 3 even though it was so severe. surely your other "child" will get better soon! it isn't for lack of care, i am sure.

THanks gals, I missed everyone I have just been so busy.

He sounds better today although he is still trying to milk it. pish!
He had a terrible cough, sore throat and chest congestion. Our oldest son had it too (his only lasted 5 days though)I just talked to my former boss and she said that her husband had it too and had been off work. She finally made him go to the doctor because he was whiny and was keeping her up all night with his cough.

I am a meany and just made my hubby sleep on the couch ;o)

LOL!! FTM, you're so funny!

There have been something like 39 cases of whooping cough (in children as well as adults) in the Sacramento County area here, and they're worried about it spreading unchecked. I guess the symptoms are like having a mild cold, but then the coughing hits. I'm always curious as to the different strains of colds & 'flu making the rounds across the country. That one you mentioned, Fishy, sounds like a tough one!

Although, I have to admit that I know what you're talking about when it comes to certain members of the opposite sex "milking it" when they're sick...big time. LOL

LOL! I ~think~ that talent gets covered in the most basic of XY training camps although there may be variations in the advanced courses. They make it look so natural! :-)

I'm thinking I am going back on the auction block soon ... but **FOR REAL** this time cauzin' my fow paw about the divulging of the secrets of XY training. Either that or the Goosi need to make yet another run at the Ohio target.

CleOH ~~~ hiding under her umbrella yet again~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh ... Before I am sold off (not that anyone would actually purchase the likes of me) does any one know if the whippet that ran off after the Westminster show was ever found?

Hi Somethinsfishy.

Sadly both of Mike's parents are deceased. The *ONLY* thing that keeps me from actually being sold off is that no one would spend the money to buy the likes of me. LOL! Mike got me for free and he's stuck with me.

(That'll teach him!)

I have to admire you, C3D. The segue from the XY factor into the obvious connection of whippets was smooth and well done. Well done, I say! *golf clap*

so i caught crufts a couple of nights ago (no cpu to say, HEY!)

the australian shepherd from the us won! a blue merle with some tan and a blue eye. handsome chap. thats hospitality for you.

anyway, i thought that crufts did not allow the showmanship you always see in westminster ect...that i have never ever liked. seems they were doing it more than the first time i ver watched. pulling the toy breeds off the ground with the leash to get them to walk tight, using excess flare, etc.

I wanted to watch the Cruft's show, FTM, but DH confiscated the remote. *scowl* Hurray for Chance the Aussie shepherd, though!!

I REALLY hate that when they just about choke the dogs, trying to get them to walk or pose the "right" way! Or when they jerk the dog to get him/her to turn around.

That's why I never cared for Dermot the Pug's handler (David something, I think). I'd watch them in the background after Dermot didn't win. Dermot would be looking for assurances (cuddles), and the guy would just ignore him.

Watching Jeffrey the Pekingese lumber around the ring, being such a good sport about it, made me want to tell him what a good boy he is (at least his handler was kind to him).

??maybe he was trying to not encourage "bad" behaior? or, maybe not all handlers are animal people! i have no idea. it is so hard to not cuddle even when misbehaving (or just being ornery).

for instance, there is romeo. though not a dog...anyway, often i will walk past him as he is sprawled out on the floor, and he lazily takes a swipe at the back of my leg as i go by...hey! where do you think your going? it is really hard to not turn around and respond, whether just verbally, or even just getting me to stop, or i like to grab his belly when he does that. all that encourages him to keep doing it.

anyway, back to dog shows. my i am chatty lately. you know animal planet. crufts should be on again!
