Last Saturday, before we went ta the cottage, we visited a dog show at the Lawrence County Fairgrounds near New Castle, Pa. We've been to this show before and sadly this year there were not many wire fox terriers but there were 4 Lakeland terriers, so Gram wanted ta go and see what they looked like.
Not like Toby looks...I tell ya!
But once we got there Gram and Pap put us in the ex-pen so they didn't have ta hold our leads all the time. And then they could go in Altha's motorhome and visit a spell. We were happy just ta be there...cause there is pee mail everywhere when ya go ta an outdoor dog show. It's sniffin' maniac time, I tell ya.
Check out Toby above and then look at the Lakie in the show......big difference...but hey, we love 'em anyway. Gram got some pointers on how ta improve on his looks some.Now that's one of the Butterfield Airedales...we saw them at the Pittsburgh Show..pretty huh?
And Gram always gets a kick outta the expression on the face of the Bull Terriers. They always look like they're smilin'. Did ya remember seein' General Patton with one in the movie "Patton"?
And this was the terrier line-up...the Sealyham Terrier right next ta the Wire Fox terrier won the terrier group that day. Now those dogs are pretty rare today and the one breeder we talked ta a while back said she thought they might become extinct. Hope not, cause they're really cute.
Now this Great Dane is so big, it looks like the girl in the ring could climb right up on it. Ride 'em cowboy!!!!
And this was the big dog line up...ain't they spectacular?
Now, while we were waitin' fer the Best in Show competition ta end, we got ta meet a Burmese Mountain Dog. He was a mite intimidatin' cause he was so big 'n we're so little. But we went right up to check him out and make sure he was real 'n all.
He was a really nice fella and he let us go up 'n sniff him. Ain't he pretty?
Well, here we are back in the Ex-Pen with a little shade cover over it so we don't get sun burned. As usual Toby is smilin'.....cause he had a really good time....he just loved seein' all the dogs and all the people...and he hopes we come back again next year. We probably will.....
See ya all later. And we hope that ya all are well and enjoyin' some really nice weather.
