Home from Dixon

August 4, 2009

Another Richmond Dog Fanciers Dog Show in the books.  As always the folks from RDF were wonderful!  Always a good time.  A great group of hardworking people, I’m thankful they include me in their club.  The local residence of Dixon, CA are always very gracious.

People are always curious why I’m there in Northern California all the way from Texas.  It is a great learning experience for one thing.  I get to help put on a very large dog show (almost 2000 dogs), I get to see dogs from another region that I might not see otherwise, I get meet new people and because of my “job” I get to meet judges and talk dogs with them always an education!

Of course this year I got to see a dog I know very well!

Bubba Ranger was ending his “summer” camp with his Javahill Team.  Ranger was BOB both days and was awarded a Grp 4 on Saturday, it was fun to see him out there in the big ring.  One of my favorite guys. Here he is going from BOB to the Hospitality Golf Cart, he is up for anything.

I also got to see PJ’s brother Harvey again which was really nice and watch my friend Janne Radcliffe  judge her 1st Cardigan assignment and awarding the finishing points to a very nice dog bred by Jane and Patrick Smith.

All and all a great weekend, but I’m glad to be home, I missed my own dogs.  It is getting harder and harder to travel without them.

    What is the “weasel” thing. That is one thing that Zippy hasn’t been called…….yet.
    Glad you had a good dog show experience in N. CA.

    Glad you’re back home. I’m dying to hear all the stuff you learned from those judges. Nice candid shot of my best guy in the cart there. He’s now back home as well.
