COBO was a blast!! It was so much fun meeting Laurie Bartolo, Jen and Leroy.

I arrived at 8:30 this morning just in time for the national anthem, for those who have never been to a dog show they always start the show off by playing the anthem and sometimes we even have the pleasure of someone singing it. There were  a lot of beautiful Chessie’s there and I even went over to watch the Newfie’s, well mostly I wanted to see Leroy and Jen. Leroy is even more handsome in person, he has the softest coat and he is one of my favorite colors, brown Smile  Spent the whole day socializing and catching up with people I hadn’t seen in a while and then Laurie found me, well where else but in the Chessie isle. 

I took almost 200 pictures and here a few, well maybe more than a few Winking smile


                                           Our friend Leroy, isn’t he gorgeous!


This is my other girl Searra, she is Cheyenne’s and Riva’s sister and according to her I was supposed to have brought her home to live with me not Cheyenne!

  1. It was so nice to meet you today! I wish I could of spent the day talking with you! I wanted so bad to go over and watch the Chessies show but we wound up leaving around 11:30 because Leroy wasn’t feeling good and I just wanted to get him home!
    It sounds like you had a great time!


  2. It was so nice to finally meet you in person! And I loved seeing all of the beautiful Chessies. You’ve got great photos here – I especially love the one of Dave and Scout! 🙂 I hope to see you again next year!


  3. Hey Misty. Great pics and video. It sure was a big day! I was wondering how strict the judges are in the ring. The video conveyed it was very noisy out there. I expect even the most well trained dogs can easily be distracted, do the judges penalize you harshly based on that? I think it would be unfair because there is just so much going on out there.


    1. Thank you!

      It is very noisy at this show and overhead is the people mover that is extremely noisy. The dogs are expected to behave and for the most part they do. If a dog was to unruly a judge could excuse them from the ring, which is not a good thing. When we are training the dogs for the ring we teach them to focus on us and keep their attention on us at all times. I do this by using treats or bait as show people call it.


  4. Great pictures!!! Looks like a lot of fun and it is great you got to meet a few other friends from Michigan. 🙂 Love the picture of Dave and Scout! 🙂

    Great post!

    Your friends,
    The Collies and Chuck 🙂
