Dog days of summer dog shows, that is!
The kids wanted to show off some of their friends...
This is Hazel. She is a golden retriever who is a licensed therapy dog. We first met Hazel and her papa, Trigger, at our very first dog show.
Say "hello" to Butterfly. She is also a therapy dog and oh so soft and fluffy! To learn more about the good work therapy dogs can do, check out this list of 15 amazing facts about therapy dogs.
We didn't catch this guy's name. He was singin' the blues in his crate while we were walking around.
BigBoy loves the Pomeranians. Puff-balls-with-legs is what he calls them.
Phoebe, a Japanese Chin, belongs to the sweet lady who sells specialized t-shirts and bookmarks. I love the way her little tongue hangs out of her mouth.
And, of course, there was Sapphire! Since getting to know her owner over the past couple of dogs shows, and convincing her that we are not crazy dog stalkers, we have been made official members of Team Sapphire!
Sapphy wasn't being shown this weekend so her owner let us take her for a nice long walk, er...run.
Even BigBoy got a chance to hold the leash!
