Good Sports-Dog-Ship Part 2

Hey, it’s Jet Here.

Well, we thought our electrical poltergeists were expunged (vocabulary building word) from our house yesterday, alas… not true!  Mom spent 1.5 hours on the phone with this company called ATT in the afternoon.  They eventually determined that another goofy thing occurred in her computer, causing the internet to shut down intermittently (another vocab builder, look at me!) since Sunday.  Shhhh…. So far, so good since the human gentleman told Mom what to do.

My human sister, Rachel, remained this thing called “under the weather” Tuesday night so, Mom, JJ and I watched Night two without her.  Mom brushed us during our viewing party, so, please note that a small portion of my input occurred via audio only, as I was enjoying my treatment on both sides laying parallel to the television.

Night two completed the remaining three groups and then the Best in Show round.

Sporting Group – As you would expect, we have a bias in this order: golden and flat coat retrievers, remaining retrievers, all the setters.  The commentator, Mr. David Frei, had to admit that he did not understand why a golden never made it out of the Sporting Group.  We have opinions, however, Mom reminded me that if you do not have nice things to say, zip it!  Well,  after we oohed and ahhed, the judge selected the Irish Setter.  Admittedly, she was a beauty and we wished her well in Best in Show.

Working Group – I have a question for Mr. David Frei.  The Herding group works hard, why do they designate the type of work in Herding and then have a group for all working breeds?  Mom impressed me during this group.  She predicted the Doberman win before the judge decided.

Terrier Group – Oh those Westminster folks love terriers.  We rooted for the terrier most similar to our friend, Miss Jennifer’s Madison, as well as the Westies, like our neighbors Vance and Vilda.    Since Mom’s favorite color is blue, we accepted the judge’s selection of the Kerry blue terrier.

Best in Show – We really liked the judge in this group, she had spunk!  The breed winners strutted their stuff like rock stars, soaking up the ferocious applause.  Mrs. Judge presented the big ribbon to Malachy, the Pekingese from the toy group.  We appreciated the good sportsman and sports-dog-ship exhibited throughout the show.  Congratulations Malachy, hope you received extra lovies and treats!

Another great day and great dog show.
