    I am one. Going to a dog show tomorrow (watching conformation and Obedience..I should not be this excited). Confirmed the Chow ring time with Aesop and Goose's breeder so that I can ogle some of their relatives.
    Toddler back pack at the ready so I can carry him like Yoda for minimal crankiness. :p

    For a second, I thought you meant carrying your chows in the toddler backpack, and I had a 'wow, dedicated owner' moment. Then I realized we were talking about an actual baby.

    I would totally go oogle. I would also pay a lot of money to see the relatives of my boys, but as they are rescues, I doubt it will ever happen. Argon's mother is deceased, father unknown, 9 sibs unknown. Gambit's mother and 4 sibs are adopted, I've only seen the brothers once for a few minutes, and a picture of sis.

    I am always excited to go to shows...especially if Watson or Menchi have family competing :D

    Have lots of fun...and you should take pictures for the rest of us ;)

    Answer me how I can use the same sunblock as the kiddo..who has no sunburn...but my husband and I got sunburns. Blah.

    Fabulous time, though :) Got to see Goose relatives as well as buy goodies. Also discovered that the Vegas area has a million Cane Corsos. Their breed ring was sooo crowded, lol. And every time I turned around, bam another Cane Corso:p

    I forgot my camera, as I'm a slacker. So, all I have are a few tablet pics, mostly of the kiddo.

    But, Goose's cousin is in this ring...the fluffy one, not the smooth

    and her half brother

    Oh good! I'm not the only one! LOL

    Dog shows are SO much fun to go watch! When my friend shows her Dal, her ringtime is usually first thing in the morning... Then we stay all day and watch everyone else!

    I knew there were some specialties,it just didn't click apparently, lol.

    Not complaining though, I love Cane Corsos :)

    I missed the Brussels Griffon judging, as it was the same time as the Chows (and Chows always win out, lol) but, I did keep an eye on them from afar. I was reminded how small Nog is, lol
