This past weekend was the show that Mandy posted about, in Carmel, Ca. GORGEOUS weather! It was really a fun weekend for us. Marina and I stayed at this cute little bed and breakfast inn and did the tourist thing on friday night, went to the show, then went to Mandy's house for dinner saturday night. it was so much fun watching the doggies play! Emma and Kenzie are half sisters and are very similar, so that was especially fun watching them interact. They both loved getting Lucy all riled up (the grumpy lady, LOL), just like their mother!

Emma just turned 10 mos and I have to say, I am so happy with how she is turning out! Our competition didn't show up either day so there was no points, but Emma got Best of breed both days (there was one girl, one boy entered, but in order for there to be points, there has to be competiion of the same sex


Showing in the Bred by exhibitor class


In the ring for best of breed


Then in the ring for Junior showmanship (her first time in juniors!)


Marina has her free stacking so nicely!


Then right from the juniors ring to the group ring, so here is Marina and Emma in the toy group on sunday


Here is Marina, Emma and Lucy in front of our little cottage. I was sad to leave that hotel! Lucy took offense to the black lab that walked by, hence the mouth open.


On Friday night, we ate at Bubba Gumps in Monterey and they had a really nice outdoor patio that was dog friendly, so here is Marina and Emma again


But wait, there's more, LOL.


Marina practicing her free stacking before the group ring on saturday


Marina and Emma again

And last but not least...

Emma and her half sis Kenzie snuggling together on the couch. Sooo cute!

And in case that wasn't nearly enough pic spamming for you, here is a short video of Marina and Emma in the ring for BOB.

thanks for looking!! :aktion033:

great pics stacy!

I just love Emma!! She is a stunner!

Thats so annoying about no points - at least here if you're the only one that turns up and the judge thinks the dog is good enough - you get the points(called green star here)

Actually, she's about the same size as Nationals. I thought she'd be keep growing but she pretty much stopped at 7 mos. She is about 5 lbs 12 oz and is a perfect size, IMO. Not too big and not too small. A nice sturdy girl with a fantastic coat! :aktion033: I'll take that any day to too small, LOL



I love this picture of Marina and the fluffs! Even with the open mouth!
I caught Lucy mid bark, LOL. Made me laugh when I looked at my pics and saw it!!

You can really see the connection Emma has with Marina. It's really beautiful to see how much Marina enjoys showing her.
Emma loooves Marina, it's so cute!. She does NOT like seeing Marina in Juniors with Lucy - she gets really whining and mad. It's kind of funny, LOL. This was the first time that Marina trained a puppy right from the start and she has done a great job. Thank you for the nice comment!

Great pics, Stacy. Marina is so grown up!
Oh thank you! And I agree - marina definitely does not look 11! she's taller than me now, that doesn't help, LOL

It was great seeing you this weekend! I love the show being so close to me! :) Kenz and Emma sure did have fun together, even if Lucy didn't quite enjoy it ;) Thanks for coming over and hangin' out. And just like always - Monday morning brought in the fog - no clear skies today!

Great job to Marina & Emma. Here's a picture I took on Saturday:

It is annoying about no points- but I knew it ahead of time, so that was nice of the other exhibitors to let me know. That doesn't always happen! We would have just cancelled the trip but the hotel was non-refundable and required 3 days advance notice. but it was ok - fun show to go to anyway!

Hi, Stacy-

I love the photos, too. Your Emma is gorgeous. Carmel is indeed lovely. Several years ago my husband was working in San Jose and I went out and spent the summer there. We drove to Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur-just beautiful country. Thank you for sharing. :)

I love each and every picture! I can't believe that Marina is 11 - my sister is 11 and she is not nearly as poised as Marina. Emma is also beautiful - her coat is so white and looks great against the green grass!!

Loved looking at all your pics. makes me wish I was still showing Ava. If I ever get a real show dog I'm gonna watch Marina's videos and learn how to do it right. :thumbsup:
