Marina and I just got home from Vallejo (4 hour drive) and whoa, I'm tired, LOL! 4 days of showing is a lot! And Marina and I are packing up and leaving again on Wednesday for another 4 day show in Gridley :w00t:

Had a great time at this show. The theme was sixties and they had a costume contest on saturday, hilarious seeing the big handlers out there dressed like hippies! Maggie and her mom and grandmother came on saturday and it was sooo great seeing them again! Unfortunately, it was also HOT that day so they only stayed to watch Marina in juniors and then had to leave before maltese showed.

Marina needs one more first place win to qualify for Westminster in Junior Showmanship and we were hoping she would get it this weekend, but she came in second each day (out of 4 and 5 kids) which was a little disappointing but she's not complaining about second!

Now for the obscene amount of pics!

Here are Marina and Lucy in juniors on thursday

(like the tie-dye armbands?)


Marina and Lucy again


In the breed ring, Marina showed her puppy Emma (Bellarata's Glee by Design) and picked up two more points, so definitely not too bad! Esp since she is showing her from the 6-9 mos puppy class (Emma turns 9 mos tomorrow) She now has 5 points with one major win and Marina has put all those points on her.


Winners bitch on Thursday for a point

And today

Another point. She was the only girl that showed but she got the male crossover point and got Best of breed, so that made Marina very happy!



And here are some pics of Emma ringside. She's soooo calm

She has her parents awesome coat, I'm very lucky!!!


Just hanging out being a good girl :)


This is Emma this morning as we were packing up to leave the hotel, before she got her topknots in, LOL. She was helping me by sitting on my suitcase. She has the BEST temperament, just a sweet and silly girl. :wub: I am loving her head more and more also. it's a moderate muzzle and is a very balanced face.

Here is a picture from last month when Marina got the major on Emma (finally got it back!) The scanner messed the coloring up so it looks a bit overexposed



I took a few little videos when Marina was showing her puppy today


Ok, I think that is it, LOL! For the newer members, Marina is my 11 year old daughter who has become very competitive in junior showmanship and this puppy she is showing is 'hers'. She will be showing and finishing her in the Bred By Exhibitor class.

It was nice to see you guys! Hopefully we will be able to make another show this summer! One that isn't soo hot and outside. Although it was even hotter inside! I was glad we got to see Marina show. I love Lucy and Emma! I haven't stopped talking about them since we got back. Luckily mom is going with it and isn't tired of my endless chatting yet. We are both excited for a maltese to come join our family :) Hoping it is soon!

I'm really disappointed about being out of town for the 4th of July show in Ferndale...it is right next to me and I think there will be maltese this year! I went last year but there weren't any!!

Good luck to you and Marina in Gridley. I'll be hoping for that juniors win!! Yay Westminster :)

Your daughter, Marina is doing an amazing job! I can't believe she's only 11 yrs old. She's a pro, you must be very proud. Lucy and Emma are gorgeous! Thanks for posting the pics and sharing the show with us.

Great pictures and videos! Congratulations to your daughter and you and the beautiful Maltese! Your daughter does so well--I agree, it's hard to believe she is just 11! I do hope she makes it to Westminster! :biggrin:

Too bad it got so hot so fast around here! I had a hard time with it and thought it best to stay put. I still hope to see some shows in the future--in the meantime, your pictures and videos help me live vicariously. :biggrin:

Good luck in Gridley! :)

Wow- great photos!! Emma truly looks like a gorgeous show dog. Her coat looks ah-may-zing!! Thanks for sharing those.
Thank you so much!! :) Emma is getting prettier by the day (if I do say so myself, LOL) She is soooo easy to deal with at shows, I love that!! Marina will be thrilled to have finished her all by herself. Lois didn't even get a point until she was over a year old so Emma is already way ahead of her with 5 by age 8 mos!

Oh that's too bad about Ferndale! There will be maltese there - I was thinking about going but the 8 hr drive scared me away, LOL. Marina is only good for about... 5 hours max then it gets painful. So good to see you guys again!

Marina has improved sooo much, I am really proud of her. And she loves it too, she has so many dog show friends! She can spend hours at dog shows without an 'I'm bored' comment. That's a rare thing these days!

Emma is gorgeous! I love her big eyes and pretty coat. :)
Thank you! I just love this pup :) She is sooo dang sweet too!

Well done. Emma is gorgeous and your Marina really looks so mature and experienced showing her.

What can I say. Marina is amazing and Emma is quite a stunner. How great to have the looks and sweetness of Emma all rolled into one.

I loved the videos and the picture of your little helper on the suitcase.

Please give Marina a :grouphug:from me, Chloe, Katie, and Chachi.

Congratulations on all the wins:thumbsup:
