First of all, I want to thank my sweet friends Abby and Happy for giving me the Butterfly award. Thank you so much, my friends. Your blogs are so cool too!

These are the instructions:

I'm passing this award on to:

Clover, my girlfriend Gucci, Maggie and Mitch, Beasley, Addie, The 4Bs, Asta, Dogs Deserve Freedom, Ben, and Sunny, Scooter and Jamie

Now about my exciting weekend: Mama, Papa and I took another weekend roadtrip - this time to do four shows in our provincial capital, Québec City, for Le Mouvement Canin Québécois and I won these:

A Fourth in Group and two Best in Breed ribbons!

Everyone was pretty excited... ok, ok, a little peace and quiet, people! It's time for my nap.

Well, half the fun is getting there. right? At a rest stop on the highway, I got to play with a few dogs who were also on their way to the show.

Hmm. Let's see who's pulling into the parking lot.

Well, he looks kind of interesting.

Hello! Do you want to play with me, white fluffy dog?

Do you, little black fluffy dog?

This is when I placed fourth in (Working) Group on Saturday.
Can you find me? (Hint: I'm wearing my whitest socks.)

I'm really workin' it here. It's no wonder I won. Emily had the best liver bits .... medium rare and real stinky.

I got some new plushies at the show and I played with them at the motel. Shows are fun, but I have to admit, hanging out at the motel with all my toys is even better.

The event was more than a dog show. There were all kinds of exotic animal exhibits. Here are some of the amazing creatures we saw there.

Lizards. (Thanks for pointing that out to me, Peanut...)




And rabbits.

A TV news camera filmed me while some kids were petting me. I felt like a movie star!

Then it was time to head home ... Hey, where are all my fans?

No one wants my autograph??


Well, my biggest fans are right here in the car with me!


Peanut said...

Mom says she thinks that frog is some sort of lizard but not sure what kind. Congrats on the awards. Good job. I'm glad you got some new toys also. What could be better?

Moco said...

Good job, all around. We know you deserve all those awards and ribbons. You would be our choice if we were the judge. At least you were not goofy like the time Mama was showing you. Treats always help.

Raising Addie said...

Congratulations Chef!!! You are the BEST!!

What was it like to be around an alligator? He looked kinda big... but at least his mouth was taped shut.

Your new toys look like a lot of fun! Do you get your own bed at the motel?


P.S. Thank you so very much for the special award! That was so sweet of you to share it with me.

Thanks for the award chef. It's an honour. Congrats on those ribbons! You look great in the ring.

Did the white or black fluffy dogs end up playing with you or were they too busy?

Wow! Two BB and a Group IV!!! You were really on your game Chef. I am sure that the judges were knocked out by how handsome you are. Your people must be so proud. Hope you stayed safe around all those scary critters.
