A Great Weekend

Winter has come to the Midwest at last....three storms in about 6 days!  YIKES!  Thankfully the Friday blizzard conditions were over and the roads were clear so off to the dog show in Des Moines, Trinity and I went.

Papillons were very late on Saturday, so we left mid-morning and took a leisurely drive to the Central Iowa dog shows.
I was lucky to have Promise, Chanceux On My Word, go Winners Bitch and Best Of Winners to complete her championship on Saturday.  Ms. Pia, Loteki Una Piccola Brezza, at her very first show was reserve! 

Trinity and I checked into our motel, then went to dinner with a group of Papillon fanciers.  We had a great time with a white elephant gift exchange!  What fun!

Sunday dawned misty and gray with temperatures hovering near the freezing point.  Papillons were late morning with only one absentee due to weather concerns.  Pia was Winners Bitch on Sunday for her first points.  Promise was Best of Opposite Sex for her first Grand Champion points.
Trinity and I arrived home mid-afternoon, unloaded the van and off to do a little grocery shopping.  We stopped at Stephanie and Clay's, where we found Clay and Sophia completing a snow man in the back yard.  The snow was perfect for snowballs, so we enjoyed a short snowball fight!  With mild temps and perfect snow, Clay, Sophia, Trinity and I all worked on creating a snow fort!  What fun!

It was a great weekend!
