My husband and I spent Valentines Day Weekend in Hartford, CT at a dog show.
Hazel sported her Valentines Day bling on Saturday and a Mardi Gras one on Sunday! The weather was sunshine and blue skies! We had fun shopping at Cabelas, and a great Valentines Day dinner at the Olive Garden.
But best of all, Hazel got a three point major on Saturday! I was so proud of her.
I did have an official show picture taken, which I'll post once it arrives. Hopefully it will be a good picture!
We have a lot of goals for this year and this was a nice start on one of them.
2009 goals: Earning a breed championship, obedience CD title, Rally RN and RA titles, JH hunt test title, Therapy Dog certification and a TD (tracking) title would be awesome. I'll be thrilled if we can earn just a few of these this year, but goals are a good thing to have!
Our next show will be March 14 & 15 in Fitchburg, MA
Wish us luck!
Hey Mom, is my Valentines Day bling on straight?
I took these photos Sunday morning outside our hotel in Enfield, CT before heading off to the show.
It was a beautiful morning!
