Western PA Dog Show and We Weren't Invited!

Lacie here...we heard that our foxy leader, Jackson is doing a bit better...able to walk a bit in his garden and tromp on his peep's flowers...we're pullin' and tuggin' for ya, Jax...and Scruffy and I just destuffed a toy bunny in your honor this morning...
Mumsie, Bruvver and Sus went to the Western PA Kennel Assoc. dog show this weekend...left us dogs at home...so much for the competitors not being pampered pets...
Just so ya know, we did ask permission to take photos at the show....
Check this bad boy out....have you ever????




Here he is again, loungin' on the groomin' table....




Hmm...if ya bigify this pic, it doesn't get any easier to identify bodily parts...where the heck did his face go?





A very petite male foxy from Japan...lookie at the Lakie in the background....





Hmm...don't think Scruffman has ever been this white!






OKAAAAAYYYYYYY....this is the Lakie boy...now I don't know what's goin' on with this lady, but she seems to be giving him a rather thorough NARD exam...she was just blabbin' on and on with this other lady and was um doin' this....









And this....








See? I'm thinkin' this boy for some reason had to have 'em reglued back on...and she was holdin' em to make sure they weren't gonna fall off...must be a story here....sheesch.









Speakin' of stories...check out this mop...er pup...you can see his face by his tongue...












Don't even ask...I didn't.












HOT HOT HOT!!!












Well, we three couldn't be in the ring together...but we have our flat steel selves here available for cuteness viewing...they sold these dudes...and bruvver bribed the lady to have us all side by side...oh that Lakie is SUCH A DIVA...
Thank to Bruvver for his photography skills!!!
Show barks,
Laciegirlie

Mom fell out of her chair laughing at that poor Lakie's experience! Geez, what the heck does that lady think she's doin'?!
We always feel so sorry for those Poodles and what they have to go through just to strut their stuff around the ring!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Oh my dawg, that poor Lakie. Maybe the superglue stuck to her fingers & they stuck to you know what! Haha!
Bet it was so much fun seeing all of those doggies up close. We just love the iron doggies too, very cool!
Paws still crossed for Jackson. We just know he will make a full recovery.

Miss Laci,
I think the pooli was thirsty. I hope he was nice, some poolis aren't real friendly. They can be rather nasty, and they are big. Are you really going to date Sharpee? He could crush you. Just making an observation.

Those dog shows are insane! That poor poodle.

Slobbers,

Inky and Molly said...

Some people have very strange haircuts. Maybe you're lucky you weren't there...

TwoSpecialWires said...

Whatever that lady was doing, it doesn't much look like that Lakey was liking it. What would the RH say? (I wouldn't know.)

I don't know, I think you got the better deal. And I'll be hunched over every time I see a dog show from now on! :)

Sally said...

Sorry it has been so long since we dropped by - D has been a very poor secretary. We were thrilled to hear that Jax is on the mend - Trampling flowers is always a good sign!

Love the photos - loved the Rasta Dude best - lots of licks

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Those are great photos of all the dogs - it is too bad you weren't able to go with though!

And we are so glad to hear Jackson is doing better!

After today's shots (gonads and hairdos) I'm not sure I want to be a show dog myself. (snicker)

The three of you are much better looking than all of those others.

Me sweet, dear, Lacielass,

You bring back SO many memories....oh the show ring! Well, me thinks that me mom has closed that chapter of me life. Well, I don't know for sure. She still gets me stripped every other week to keep me coat in show condition. I've met Petunia Pete the Poodle, and Mop'n'glo the mopdog, and Larry the Lakie (yep, fake), and Willie the Wrinkle dog and Sake Hiroshi Morioka the Japanese WFT. Oh, and tell Asta that I have his number for her. They are all pretty nice except for Mr. FakieLakie.... uh huh... there is a story there. I'll tell you later.

McMuffer says that she and Mop'n'glo had a thing back in her show days. "What a nice gent", she says. It's kinda funny that SHE looked like THAT when she came to live with us. Yep, hair was so long it was almost dreadin'!!

Me thinks that YOU deserve Best In Show Miss Lacienursiecakes. Now, get your stuff ready, and don't be late tonight. Your makeup does NOT have to be pawfect for me, so there is no late excuses. Remember to wear your padded drawers for McMuffer's toofer buffer.

Irish Love,
McG

Hey, I always see these Huskies' privates (both male & female) getting rubbed by the hoomies at our local shows too! I don't know why those crazy hoomies do that but I think it's to make the dogs feel comfortable? Relaxed? And I feel so sad for that Poodle. He has such a crazy hairdo!

Love licks & Hugs,
Solid Gold Dancer

Agatha and Archie said...

Sophie Brador said...

Hey, I think that bull dog had a hangover.

Sunshade said...

OK, that black pom pom fluff dog should definitely NOT be a boy....really... Other than that, the others are acceptable I guess. You got me there with the Lakie lady, WHAT WAS SHE DOING????? Did you at least get his address so you can save him????

ps. thank you! Check out my bloggie, we finally got it together!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Koobuss said...

WOW!! That was very interesting! Just what was that big black pile of fur? And that poor little Lakie boy! (On not.) Then there was the black mop. Yikes!

Life is sure fun there in Western PA! You've got all kinds of sights.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie
