I know that many of you are dying to know how I did in my first real show, so here it goes. The show was sponsored by the Bryn Mawr Kennel Club, Inc. and held in beautiful Pottstown, PA.
As many of you know, Mom is definitely not a morning person. So, since I had to be in the ring at 8:30 a.m. sharp, she had the brilliant idea that staying in Pottstown, PA, would be fun and the two-hour drive from home would not interfere with her beauty sleep.
After my stunning, third-place performance in the ring, which everyone but the Judge was quite impressed with, we watched my half-sister, Samantha, and my new friend, Cha Cha, win their classes. You go girls!
Then we went to ring three to watch Mister Ed perform. Mr. Ed is a French Bulldog, not a horse. Polly Vous Francais? The Bryn Mawr show was Ed's first time in the ring, too. Good job, Ed!
After we were finished performing, Mom, Dad, and I had the entire day to ourselves to spend in lovely Pottstown. (Ed - You are going to have to excuse my French here, but there isn't a damn thing to do in Pottstown.) You can't even buy a pot! I know. Dad tried. I think that my lips must have turned ten different shades of pink when he asked the desk attendant at the Taj Mahal (aka the Days Inn) if he knew where we could buy some pot.
We did visit the nearby Valley Forge National Historical Park, which commemorates the sacrifices and perseverance of the Revolutionary War generation, so that Mom could legitimately use "educational" on my excuse form as to why I was not in school that day. Unless there is some other art form combined with the performance, the school administration frowns upon "showing" as a justifiable excuse.
All joking aside, it was a really fun weekend, and I can't wait for my next performance on July 4 in West Friendship, MD. Stay tuned!
