Great Summer Weekend in Wisconsin

Finally a brief break in the oppressive summer heat and humidity!  Who would have thought that 90 plus would be considered cool!

I left Thursday afternoon in the upper 90s to drive to Waukesha.  I was to judge the Chihuahua sweepstakes on Friday.  I had a nice entry of 7 smooths and 13 long coats. 

Friday morning dawned sunny, but there had been rain on Thursday so the grounds were very wet.  The grass was also quite long.

My Best In Sweeps was a Smooth Coat puppy from the 6-9 class - Dartan The Spark Continues.  I would have taken this little guy home!  What a showman.  He was beautifully presented by Darwin Delaney.

Best of Opposite Sex to Best In Sweeps was a lovely Long Coat bitch from the 9-12 class, Hurd N TLC's Affair To Remember, shown by Laurie Thompson.

It was a lovely group of Chihuahua puppies and the decisions were tough!  It was fun!!!

I spent the day talking to friends, watching different breeds and getting my feet muddy!  UGH!!!

Wind blown Pia finishing her AKC Championship
Saturday, Papillons were not on until afternoon.  I spent a leisurely morning, grooming, and taking my time.  By the time we were in the ring, the lovely cooler temps and low humidity had really heated up and it was darn right hot again!!!  Loteki The Sun On My Face was first in and won the BBE class.  He is such a easy dog, moves since and shows like a million bucks.  He won WD!  YEA!  Next in was Pia, who also won the BBE class of bitches.  She went on to WB to complete her title!  With Pia's Championship, her dam, CH Loteki The Wind In My Hair, a.k.a. Lana, qualifies for her dam of merit award!   Pia completed her title completely from the BBE class!  Grant, who is also out of Lana, was BOW.  

I also showed CH Loteki The Winds Of Change, yet another Lana kid, managed to win the Select points.  

What a great day!!!

Sunday was an early morning, with an 8:30 a.m. ring time.  The morning was lovely and there was a major in bitches.  Pia had finished the day before so I left her in her crate, electing to concentrate on Grant and Spencer.

Grant winning his 2nd major at just 10 months
Grant was the only BBE dog, and went on to WD.  I was able to find someone to take him back in for Breed, where he was BOW for 3 points!!!  His second major at 10 months, all points from the BBE class!!  Spencer was Select, so it was a grand day!   We were in the van on the way home by 11!  It was great to get home early-ish!

Sunday night we had a lovely grilled salmon supper at Clay, Stephanie's with Clay's father, Dion Melton.  It was wonderful!!!  Thank you for inviting us.
