I am so glad so many of our SM friends got such great pictures. I did not. I was really crazy busy with grooming the girls and only really had my camera out a couple of times.

I do have a Picasa album for the pictures I took.

I also want to apologize to everyone for not being able to spend more time visiting and having fun. I felt like I was running constantly and of course I was grooming constantly. I missed all but about 5 minutes of the Pizza party doing dog baths. There were some people I feel like I barely saw and even a few I missed entirely. I really had a blast with those I did get to see and spend time with.

I was especially sorry that I didn't stop to do shopping until Sunday after lunch, so I missed Maggie and all the wonderful things on the Luv My Furbaby table. She had an amazing setup, but I was not carrying around my wallet the first couple of days at the show so I didn't stop to buy and when I did she was gone. :blush:

I loved seeing the folks from SM that I have met before and I loved meeting all the other SM folks for the first time. We really have a wonderful group of ladies on this forum (and a few gentlemen as well). :)

Ok I can't figure out how to get to the other pics in your album. I don't see a next button. Help lol!
Anyway, your girls were so sweet and mellow, not to mention absolutely adorable. I was so glad to meet them and you!

Oops sorry. I tried to fix this three times and ended up with grandma's feet too. But I think the fourth time was the charm. Try the new link. Updated in the original post.

Carina it was great meeting you and your Mom (she is a doll). I'm sorry I closed after lunch......it was a LONG 10 hr drive back to Miami. Your babies are awesome too. I posted some pics of you guys on one of my threads.

On another note that Anja <sp> was rude! She left her bag laying next to my booth so we picked it up to see if there was any ID in it. I recognized her and went to give it to her. I was trying to catch her attention and her Mom (??) was coming forward to get something and Anja motioned to her about the purse and she just grabbed it. No thank you no looking back no nothing. Neither one of them. I hope it's just a language barrier.:angry:

Carina - it was so nice meeting you, your mom and your gorgeous Cloud Clan. What beauties those fluffs are and as sweet as they are beautiful.:wub::wub::wub: I loved your photos. They really captured the gorgeous look of the full coats especially in the line-ups. Thanks so much for treating us to them.:chili:

LOL, Tami are you sure you know what you are asking? If I ever have to show two at nationals again I will absolutely need help. However, I hope that someone shoots me before I try to do that with two entered both days. Still, anytime you want to come watch me groom you are always welcome to join me.

Speaking of this, I am being very remiss. I should thank Kim (CritterCrazy) for being my assistant all morning on Saturday. She was a total Godsend. I could not have done it without her. :Flowers 2:

Carina, at least you and I got to visit a bit LOL.. (we were right next to each other in the ring!) I was complaining about my lead and my shoes!! Oh gosh, was I having trouble. I bought one of those bling leads and the darn thing was like a weight!! It kept dropping off of my shoulder, I sure HOPE no one got photos of me, cuz my face was contorted into YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! LOL... At one point, I had Ritzy stacked and it hit her in the behind and she jumped a mile. I was getting frustrated and it showed...(the vendor took it back and is putting another bling bead on the end to counter weigh it) then my shoes. I thought my ankle was going to crack in them ;) It hurt so bad, I though, OMGosh, I'm not going to be able to stand up... it was NOT good, all the way around! So, I normally am not so complainy Carina :) and apparently, I didn't look too bad from the "outside" as we got 2nd behind Pat Keen that day.

Anyway, I know exactly how you feel, I felt the same way, between bathing and seminars and trying to keep the dogs quiet, I felt like I hardly got to see anyone. Cheryl said, that's why she doesn't like to show a dog, she wants to socialize!!! We'll see next year :) It was so nice talking to you and your babies are so cute, I STILL can't decide who is cutest!!!! :)
