Playing Hooky

Last week, I took off Monday and went to the Westminster Dog Show with the mom. It took me a week to finally upload the pics. Here are a few to wrap up the day:

Hehe. We snagged amazing seats next to Ring Three, where all the herding dogs were competing. To call us obsessed would be an understatement.

I grew up with two shetland sheepdogs (the smaller dogs pictured above), Bonnie and Daisy, and my parents got another one, Maggie, after I graduated college, but helped train and raise because I lived at home for a year and a half after school. While we happily watched other breeds in the ring, for some reason, we always return to favoring the shelties and the rough collies.

In one of these pictures is a white collie, which is extremely rare. It looks like a typical collie in disguise.

These dogs were absolutely gorgeous, and so well behaved. I even got to feed one of them a cookie in the benching area!! Good hooky day.

    Ewww the white collie is extremely unattractive. Our collie Jessica would have destroyed her in the show!

    Ok first of all first time reading your blog. so funny. 2nd, i watched this on tv!! Amazing!! I really want to go next year! I liked the white collie it’s white and fluffy like my cat! I think Tula (my 5 pound Yorkie) would have done well as a show dog, she thinks she is a princess and she is a real tough bitch.
