Best in Show
As Bea’s show debut quickly closes in on us, we are spending this week fine tuning our skills and preparing for the big weekend! We have made the backyard into our very own little show ring and Hen and Al are happy to be the acting judges. So far, so good. They’ve been giving us all 10’s.
Tomorrow Bea is getting a full groom head to toe. This will include a full shampoo, conditioning and blow dry. Once fully dried (which feels like 4 hours) my little Bea will have her nails trimmed, ears and tail given a dusting (light trim) teeth cleaned, and eyelashes curled. Ok, maybe we’ll leave her lashes. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning we will give her a full groom all over again. I shower everyday and Bea wants to too. Sounds fair.
As excited as we are, we’re ten times more nervous that the other goldens and owners will laugh at us. We’ve decided to watch Best in Show tonight, just to be prepared.
In the mean time, Bea and I have been busy picking out my outfits for the show ring. I want to blend in with Bea because she needs to be the focus of the judges attention. With that in mind, Henry thinks I also need to be sure to look tres chic and Albert thinks that making a statement is important. Take a look at the looks the dogs have pulled for me. They’ve got quite the eye for fashion, clearly they’re my dogs.
Wish us luck on the shows! If we don’t crash and burn, we’ll invite friends to come next time!
