It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Long Day at the Dog Show

Our day started before 5:00AM. Showing in Rally at 8:00AM, with a big drive to Vallejo - right at commute time - and inclement weather in the mix, made for a long day. These pictures were taken of Denali around 10:00AM, while we watched Captain in his conformation showing.

First it's the Big Yawn

Almost asleep...sitting up!

OK, I'll smile for a picture.
(Now can I eat and sleep?)

While it was a rocky ride, we did earn our second Rally Excellent leg at today's show, with an all-time low score (79), but still a third place finish. More details to come in tomorrow's Rally Journal.

As always...I get the Best Prize: Denali comes home with me!

Sometimes, you take a Q, smile, and just shake your head. I hope today is successful -- maybe with a higher score.

Hey, at least it's a Q! :) That's how Kota and I got through Rally to this point! ;-) (he's a slacker, what can I say? ;-) )
Congrats on the 2nd leg...

It's funny how as the years are going by, Denali still is as pure black as ever... yet Kota has gone so gray... hard to believe they're even littermates now!

Way to go girls!!
