GR CH Nelson
This past weekend I went to the Edwardsville KC shows in Belleville, IL.  I left after work on Friday and made the drive down.  No weather to deal with which for the first weekend in December is remarkable.

Saturday morning, I groomed Nelson and Promise and off to the show.
Promise, (Chanceux On My Word) won WB for two points under judge Michelle Billings, as well, as BOW.  A large class of specials were in for BOB, CH Loteki For The Good Of Mankind won the Select Male, completing the requirements for his Grand Championship!   I was so very pleased. 

The weather was down right balmy all day Saturday with temperature at 8 p.m. at  58 degrees.  But showers started about 9.  The kids and I snuggled in for the evening.

Sunday morning, it was still raining and much colder.  Papillons did not show until 2:10 p.m., so it was a lazy start to the day.  Our judge on Sunday was Randy Garren, we were lucky to bring home the bitch points again with Promise.  The BOB class was huge with all entries making it to the show, Nelson won the Select Dog points. 

It was a very good weekend.  The rain stopped long enough to potty dogs.  I made my way north and home.  I am home for the rest of the year.  Christmas is less than 3 short weeks away and I have all my shopping, baking and preparing to do.  I work so well under pressure!  <ggg>
