Mum had a great day at Best in show Day at Sydney Royal. All of her old mates were there and it was a beautiful sunny day. It always seem to rain on Best in show day but not this year. For people that don't like dog shows it would be pretty boring I guess so I thought I'd just show you some photos Mum took and not rave on too much about the day. I guess when you've seen Westminster or Crufts, little old Sydney Royal, is a bit of a non event but not to Mum. She LOVED it!!
Whoops the pictures got downloaded out of order so they are a bit all over the place but you'll get the message, I'm sure. See if you can guess the winner from the final seven.
|One of the final seven. Best in non-sporting group! Cute, aye Ali?|
|Another one .... Best in Gin (Haaaahaaaa too funny Mum) GUN dogs|
|Best in Utility|
|Best in hound group. The whippet was cheated!!!!|
|Best in working dog group.|
|One of the breeders group entries. Not one of those blokes had eyes to match yours Zoe!|
|Crikey Zaidie .... just cause you got a lear jet you think you can sneak in anywhere, aye mate?|
|Best in toy group. I feel soooooo sorry for this bloke. He must NEVER get to have fun. I can just hear his Mum .... don't do this, don't do that! keep away from the mud - snow - sand- grass- roo poop- dead stuff ..... crikey the list would go on and on. |
|Best in breeders group. They were brilliant and thoroughly deserved to win although Mum did like the foxie group. |
|See me lined up there right in front. |
|Well it sure looked like me. Even fooled Mum for a second. She knew I was with Dad somewhere but she did do a double take. Still think this bloke was robbed. He looked pretty good to me. He was in the puppy class. Crikey he was well behaved. Who knew we whippet blokes could be THAT good!!|
|Another one of the seven. Best in terrier group. What do you think, Mr JF Sir? Pretty cute, aye??|| Ok ... time to guess. You've got the seven now. Who won??|
|AND THE RUNNER UP IS .... The toy poodle!!!|
|This bloke should have won. Look... perfect size and shaped schnoz ... perfect proportioned body and legs and perfectly groomed. What more could you want??|
|AND THE WINNER IS ... the Bull mastiff! Who would have picked that? Well the Italian judge for one! I'd have given it to the Borzoi or the Jack Russell myself. |
|This little Italian greyhound won the Best Puppy in show. Mum says you should have seen him walk. His little feet hardly touched the ground. Very cute little bloke, aye??|
|Always Mum's favourites .... the foxies, wire, smooth, Jacks if they have anything to do with the foxies she loves 'em. This bloke looks pretty good to me. Why didn't HE win?|
|This could have been our Lucy. She looks sooooooo much like her. Naturally Mum burst into tears when she walked out. She still can't look at a wire without the tears appearing!!|
|How good did these blokes look??|
Ok ... that's it for Sydney Royal. Sorry to have inflicted that on you but I've got to give Mum some slack, I s'pose. I had a great day with Dad. Mum was amazed when she got back and found I was still alive. She didn't think Dad was capable of looking after me by himself. Thought I'd go flying right out there over a cliff or get stuck into some roos or something. No such luck but we did manage to have a good day. Hope you all had a great Easter!!
Wanna run ... love, Charlie.
BOL, at your picture in the lineup...with your hoodie on, BOL!ReplyDelete
Well! I look more like that smooth foxie than the jack...but who cares! I am me, MJF and that is what counts, just like you, Charlie...you are you and that is great! We are best in show evfurry day to our peeps!
Growlmy has only evfur been to one doggy show that was 'real', it was inside, but small potatoes, too...BOL!That's where my grandpawppy thought he would like to have him a Kerry Blue Terrier, OMD!
He got a bordercollie-lab mix...BOL!
Have a good rest of your trip! And I am happy to hear you stayed off of cliffs...
BTW: Dogster/Catster are so flea ridden, OMD:((
Crikey Mr JF Sir... we sure are Best in show EVERY day to our peeps and who'd wanna be one of those blokes. Never allowed to get dirty or get into a scrape with another bloke in case they got a mark on them. Im soooooo happy to be me!!! Crikey I'm glad your Grandpawppy didn't get a Kerry Blue. They are VERY good looking but OMD!!!!! Mum thinks I'm a handful ..... I'm nothing compared to a Kerry. My 2 legged sister had a Kerry. He was a lovely bloke but nothing was safe around him. He took on our Goannas and WON!!! Don't know if you've ever seen our goannas but they are HUGE and mighty MEAN. You don't go tangling with them. But Reilly did. They were no match for him! A border collie/Lab was a much wiser choice.ReplyDelete
Yeah! Dogster/catster's gone way passed the flea stage. I think it's a paralysis tick that's got them, aye?? Thanks to you I've got my pages saved. You just don't know do you??
Yup, an awfur tick...though maybe it got the boot, because Growlmy was able to do some things without troubles on Catster just before coming here.ReplyDelete
She couldn't send out pictures, comments or gifts...you are right, good thing we got our pages safe and sound. And have bloggie thingies now...and now growlmy has to get us all to beddie-byes...130am! OMD!!
1.30am ..... Crikey!!!!! You and Growlmy are the regular night owls, aye??Delete
Sometimes...its mostly when she comes home from her 3 - 11 shift...she has to unwind befur going to bed...right now its 1130, and she is about to turn in...way early, BOL!Delete
Mum knows all about that unwinding stuff. She can't get to sleep without a bit of quiet time either. It doesn't matter how late it is, if she has been out, she has to unwind before bed. Me ...... I can sleep anytime.Delete
SHE flew down last year for the day to see the scotties!ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Bella & Roxy
Crikey ... that flying stuff is real scary. I've been in a plane and I didn't like it one little bit. Barked my head off and peed, big time, in my crate.Delete
Luved all da photos!ReplyDelete
Thanks Whitley .... aren't we lucky we don't have to get all prissied up like that all the time, aye??Delete
don't know why the silly prissy dogs always win - it is we working types that do all the hard work....you think we would win occassionallyReplyDelete
Crikey .... how true but even the working dogs that are entered are all prissied up and look as if they've NEVER had a good run in their whole lives, ever. At least they gave the best in show to a big, mean looking, bull mastiff. Then they had to give the runner up to the cutsie lookin' toy poodle to make up for it.Delete
Wow! Whut great lookin pups there at the show. Gotta feel sorry fur 'em tho. Kinda like robot dogs. No fun times like we can have!ReplyDelete
Uh, whut yu got on yur head Charlie? A pair uv knickers? BOL!
Mommy's lovin those Kelpies! Argh!
Sox, Zoe ..... sox!!!! Just NOT knitted ones, aye?? It's all Dad's fault! AND you're nearly right ..... it's usually his knickers that end up on my head not his sox. Just not this time.Delete
My Mum loved those kelpies too. S'pose they were pretty good looking ...
What is that on your head Charlie??? Is that a dirty old sock??? What's going on? Xoxox (2 legged sister)ReplyDelete
Yeah, my anonymous, a sock ..... better than Dad's usual trick of his old undies, aye??Delete
Nothing much .... what's going on with you???? Love ya .... heaps!!!!!!!!!!
Hey, Charwie! Whut kinda pawents name dere dotter 'Anonymus'???ReplyDelete

Weird ones, Zaidie ..... REAL weird ones!! Wanna see a picture of her? I'll see if I can find a good one to post. Only if she approves of course!Delete
Socks, Zaidie, Socks!!!! Dad and I had a tug of war after that photo session. The socks got stretched good and proper!!
Aroo there Charlie, I thought I would stop by and sniff around your blog if you get chance stop by and sniff around mine.ReplyDelete
