Mission Circuit

This past week I traveled down to Pomona for the City of Angels Pomeranian Specialty and the Mission Circuit which is a 4 day dog show . I'm sorry to report we didn't finish her title or actually do very well there but it was a great learning experience and a time to see a lot of the So. Californian Pomeranians, owners and handlers.  The Mission Circuit is a very "political" circuit with some of the best handlers from the country.  Irregardless, Saucie and I can hold our own it just wasn't our weekend.
The great thing about this weekend was that I brought my camera and  I had a friend take pictures of Saucie and I in the ring so you get to see a little bit of what a dog show is like.

Family Resemblance? You be the judge.

Aubrey came over last weekend with her blonde hair in pigtails and she immediately reminded me of a picture that was taken of me when I was 2 years old. What do you think? (If you double click on the photo it will enlarge it). The most notable difference is, I have boring brown eyes and Aubrey has beautiful blue eyes, LOL (Barbie will get that joke).

Hot Weekend BBQ, Swim and Play

Yesterday the family got together with my sister Marti and her husband Ron who were taking care of their granddaughter Gwenevere Scout.  It was a hot 102 and Barbie and Justin set up a little pool, I had my sprinkler Octopus and a new little pop-up playhouse and Marti brought a pool of balls. Fun was had by the little 2nd cousins who are only 5 1/2 weeks apart, Gwen will be 2 in July and Aubrey in Sept.

We also barbequed hot dogs, sausage, hamburgers and corn on the cob along with serving a bean salad, potato salad, jello salad chips and lemonade. Yes it was a great weekend!

Posting to Post

I haven't posted in awhile, life is busy as usual, in fact, I spent three days at a conference in San Jose for Sex Educators. LOL, yep, I spent a couple days hearing learning about sex and how to teach it to students!! The best part of the trip was that I got to go by Santa Cruz and visit with my son Jacob. He met me after a day of substituting and we had an enjoyable Thai lunch and then wandered the streets and stores of downtown Santa Cruz.  My little boy has grown up and seems to really be thinking about the future.  He is going to apply to Berkeley to their Journalism program for the Fall of '09 so hopefully when he gets back from finishing his bicycle journey to Argentina he will be able to go back to school.  
These are a couple pictures of Saucie ungroomed, she is in the Pom Specialty in LA on Thursday so I'm very happy she has kept in coat. Of course, that is Gage sitting with the mushrooms.

Face Plant

OUCH!! My beautiful little granddaughter didn't want to loose her ice cream cone when she tripped so instead of putting out her hands she fell on her face!! Big goose egg, bruise and scratches but as you can tell, doesn't seem to affect her. She was thrilled to get a Popsicle at Grandma and Grandpa's and show us her battle scars.
