Houston Went To The Dogs This Weekend

CH Dawin Spitfire, a French Poodle, beat six other dogs to win best-in-show at the Reliant Park World Series of Dog Shows in Houston this weekend.
Jack, an English Cocker Spaniel, shows what it's made of in its quest for the top prize.

Now aren't these precious? I remember when my girl was a youngster. Connor Black, of Fort Worth, blow-dries a golden retriever named Minx at the World Series of Dog Shows.

Joe "The Terrible" Has Been Here

Joe is my father's dog. He's the one in the middle. Although I have to admit, he is not quite as terrible as in past visits.
He's no different than my girls when it comes to standing at the table waiting for a handout.

Wow! Where has the time gone? I prepared a post about going on vacation but never posted it. The post is resting comfortably in the draft section of blogger. My father and I went to Tucson on June 27 and returned here to Texas July 3rd. Then I took my father home to Arkansas on the 9th of July returning here on the 12th. It's been a very busy 3 weeks with typically miserable summer temps and some tropical downpours as well. Now I have to catch up on chores around here.
I hope mid summer has been good to you and yours and that you have a great weekend!
