G.K. is Off to Another Show!

Posted by F&S

Now that G.K. is a champion and brought home his first blue ribbons, he’s off to Syracuse, New York for another competition.  His breeder, Karen Tracy of Pazzazz Chows, and his handler, Jan Kolnik, came to the farm yesterday to chauffeur our Ghenghis Khan to hopefully, another win.  We’ll keep you posted!

G.K.!  Come and say 'hi' to Jan!

Oh Jan!  It's so good to see you!  I feel like you and I are becoming quite a team!

Yes, Jan, I have been practicing.  The Frenchies have helped a lot.  Now that I've been in two shows, I think I'm getting the hang of it.  No, I KNOW I'm getting the hang of it!

What does it say on your car, Jan?

Oh right, you have your own kennel where you raise Shar-Peis, which, like Chow Chows, are from China.  Shar-peis are super wrinkly when they are puppies but slowly lose the wrinkles as they mature.

G.K., Sharkey and I want to come too!  What if you get homesick?  We, Frenchies, wouldn't let that happen!

It's okay, Francesca.  I'll be fine.  While I miss you both terribly, I have my cousin, Trinity, along with Jan and Karen and all the rest, to keep me company.

Yes, everyone is so happy about Karen re-opening Pazzazz Kennels after that horrible propane gas explosion.  Franny, take care of Sharkey while I'm away, okay?  Martha, I'm going to make you proud, I promise!

All right, Trinity!  Here we are nicely tucked away in our travel crates.  I'm so glad you're coming with me again.  I'm certainly ready, are you?

  • Good Morning F & S

    Well it looks like your brother will be traveling a lot now that he is a show dog. I still think I'd prefer the life of a regular dog, sleeping, eating, pooping, chewing toilet paper all that good stuff.

    I'm happy it's Friday and Mom has no plans this weekend so that means lots of time with me :) She still doesn't feel that great has a bad cold but not as bad as Dad, he hasn't left the house all week. I'm hoping he leaves today so I can chew a little paper I've had to be good all week ;)

    Enjoy your weekend everyone and good luck G.K.!!!

  • Good Luck G.K. it would be great to see a chow win and one as cute as you would be perfect.

  • Hey G.K.,
    Best wishes buddy. I know you will do your best. Have a great weekend!
    Hey Zoe, sorry to hear about your folks. We have a quiet weekend here, too. No Grandchildren. I like it when they come and I like it when they go. I hit the bathroom wastebasket & shredded lots of kleenex, what fun!
    Til Monday,
    Rebel

  • I would like to see more pictures of GK on Martha's Blog. I myself am a Chow Chow owner. I also belong to the Chow Chow Club of Great New York although my Chow is just a pet. I enjoy going to the program the Chow Chow Club has.

  • Hi GK. Congrats, happy birthday (the 8th)! Just want you to know that your sister Harlow and I watch your show career all the time and are so proud of you! I chose to be out of the limelight (sorta) though I am a CGC AND a certified therapy dog so my career path has been bringing joy to people living in a nursing home!
