Whirlwind weekend

I ended up only going to the Grass Valley dog show on Sunday. There is too MUCH going on in my life right now and I used the extra time to get almost caught up. Besides I did hear that Saturday was not only hot but humid and the judge was Sunday's judges' wife and so I think they both liked similiar things. The best part about this dog show was that I had kennel help!!!! So I have pictures!!! The fairgrounds were lovely. Lot's of Sierra pines and shade! I wish we had more time to snoop as the brief glimpse I saw of Grass Valley left a nice impression. Apparently G.V. was the place to go 10 years ago. Cute historic mining town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas.
Ash got reserve on Sunday to Heather Hutchison's Reese's Jamaican Rum and it was this dog's sire that took breed both day's (Ch Reese's Bold As Brass)- So I can live with that. :) Galen took the major on Saturday and that's also good news. After the show we stopped along the Trinity River and the dogs played in the water. It was beautiful out and I didn't want to go home and face my monster textbooks, but eventually the time was up. Back to books today. IV starts tomarrow.

Hurray for Galen.

Now Digger is the only one who needs another major . . .

Sounds like it was a good time... and I've always heard nice things about Grass Valley, but it was one show i never made it to.
Glad you had fun!

Glad you had a good time!

And that husband/wife team doesn't always agree, just FYI. ;-)
