"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Bridget is stunned!

She can't believe she went from showing at Westminster to doing Peep Shows :)

There is nothing like being at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Here are some photos from the show on Valentine's Day, 2/14/06 during the Corgi judging and in the benching area. Westminster is a benched dog show. Benching means that all the dogs that are entered must stay in their little benching area until a specific time. This gives everyone who visits the dog show an opportunity to get up close and personal with all of the Champion dogs. It is an exhausting day for the exhibitors but so worth the effort. Bridget loved getting her picture taken all day long and meeting all of the children especially. She flirted with anyone who had popcorn and succeeded quite often in getting some.

The 'green carpet' is a wee bit more crowded during the day at breed judging than you see on TV in the evening during Groups!

Greetings to all of my Corgi loving friends! It is Saturday evening. They say there is a blizzard on the way. We went to church tonight and the priest asked the people in the back to start waving at him when the snow starts to come down so he could make sure everyone got home safely. The local radio station said that Valentine dances and high school plays are being postponed.

Every one around here has pretty much cleared the grocery stores of all the milk and bread, shovels and ice-melt. My husband said it is more fun to be snowed in with beer and chips and wonders why they aren't the first things to disappear! :) My daughter won't mind being snowed in as long as she has internet access. My son...hmmm...probably would like to be snowed in with his girlfriend. I always feel like I want to bake something when it snows. I wonder why that is? I think the Corgis can smell when it is going to snow. They have a look of anticipation in their eyes. I put towels near the front door to catch the snow from our boots. The Corgis are sleeping on them. I'm sure they can't wait.

Well, time to hunker down and watch the Olympics!
