Isabella's First Dog Show

Well Isabella finally attended her first dog show. Out of town to makes things more interesting.
We attended the Turkey Circuit in West Springfield, Massachusetts. We left Friday evening and little peanut slept the entire way. First time she has done that. We arrived at our hotel finally, at around 10:00 p.m. after dropping off our stuff at the show site for setup. (crates, grooming table and stuff) After an hour or so of being wound up she went to sleep and slept the entire night. Not bad for being in a strange place and her pack-n-play. Ring time was 2:00 p.m. Saturday and we arrived there around noon. She was totally taken in with all the goings on and we met some friends we hadn't seen in a while who oohed and aaahed over her. She spent time in her stroller, in snugli and on grandma's shoulder where we took the majority of our naps that weekend. Hey it's better than no naps at all.
Saturday evening was back at the hotel for a wonderful lasagna dinner with good friends where we ate and showed them how to groom their affie. Isabella played and then hit the sack for a very early bedtime where she mostly slept through all the noise of us people and 3 rowdy affies playing. Sunday was another afternoon ring time. Much the same schedule as Saturday. We arrived home around 5 or so where she was down to bed before 8:00 p.m. I think. So, all in all, considering her whole schedule was out of whack, she did pretty good. None of the noise bothered her at all as she is VERY used to it around here.
Following are pictures of the weekend. Some Belly. some doggy. Enjoy!
