I Was Simply Born to Win!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

Hi fans!  I am really on a roll because last week, I traveled to Rhode Island with Karen and Jan and some other friends to complete in another dog show.  I told you I was getting the hang of this show biz stuff because I won Best in Breed again!  There is simply no stopping me!

Look at these adorable snowmen!  I wonder how the decorations are coming along at home on the farm?  I hope Francesca and Sharkey aren't still sleeping on the job!

Let's see what there is to eat around here.  French fries?  I don't think those are part of my diet!

Hot doggies?  Well, I'm already a hot doggie, if I don't say so myself!

Wait, these aren't for people, they're for pups!  Annie's Pooch Pops are all natural treats for dogs in the shape of people food!  How fun!

It's fun staying in hotels with Jan, Karen, and the other dogs!  It feels like one big slumber party!

Wolfie, you silly Frenchie!  You sure look cozy in your covered bed!  I wonder if Francesca and Sharkey would like something like that for Christmas?

The backstage area at the show was decorated for the holiday season.  That poodle is almost as dressed up as the tree!

  • Hello G.K. & Ladies,
    G.K., congratulations again!!! You are my favorite champion. I can say I knew you when!!! The girls sure have needed you on the farm----they were a bit weary on Friday. Keeping up with Mama Martha is a big job, but someone has to do it. Speaking of Mama's, mine is sooo busy right now with her crafts, that she can't even get the holiday cards addressed. She has a show this upcoming weekend she has to get ready for, and I am her supervisor to crack the whip so to speak. She is working as fast as she can, and keeps selling out. That is good and bad. Next year she won't have that awful accident she had to recover from and she can get ahead. G.K., I loved the photo of you in front of the snowmen and with your scarf. Mom said you looked very distinguished. Have a great Monday all.
    Love & licks,
    Basil
    P.S. Oh Zoe, oh Zoe, oh where can you be---I sure do miss thee. I'm a poet----hehehehehe!

  • Good Morning GK, F & S - I'm back!!!!!

    Congratulations GK on another win - your moma must be proud.

    I'm so happy my mom is home from Aruba I missed her SO much. I sat her down and told her 12 days is too long for her to be away from us, next year I'm booking her ticket and it won't be for that long for sure.

    Yesterday we decorated out Christmas tree it looks so pretty. Our plans were to turn off all the house lights and just have the tree lit, drink hot chocolate and listen to Christmas music when the darn power went out really pissed me off. By the time it came back on we were all ready for bed :(

    So I hope everyone has been well at the DW. I'm not getting much computer time this morning mom has to leave early for work. I think I'll start to write my list to Santa because I've been very good and expect good gifts ;)

  • Hi Son,
    I could not comment on the blog on Friday. It was a very busy day but the girls looked very very comfortable on those blankets. It is good to take a break now and then.
    GK, I heard that the judges gave you great reports and you had a clean sweep, won the Breed all four days. Good job son. Good job. Keep up the good work. I saw the picture of you in Jan's lap. I used to do that too. I would fall asleep like that.
    Zoe, Zoe, welcome back girl. I loved seeing your comment this morning, especially the last sentence in which you said that you expect good gifts because you have been very good. hehehehehehe
    Love always,
    Maddox

  • Hey big boy!
    Hail and hardy congrats! You are a handsome dude.
    Has Martha built you a trophy room yet? I think you're gonna need one!
    Hey Zoe! Missed you...my Mimi left for a week & Papa takes great care of me & we are real buddies, but I sure was glad when Mimi was back in the fold. Mimi says Aruba is a great place though!
    Back to my nap.......sparkling holiday dreams to all.
    your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    OK GK you have won again; great job. As I’ve said before, I’m not a show dog. My Mommy cursed my ears and they didn’t stand up like they should. My brothers and sisters ears did, don’t know why mine didn’t. Oh well, I’m content just as I am. That’s what is important in life. Welcome back Zoe, we missed you. It’s raining today and I’m so sad. I like to go outside when it’s cool like it is today. Should only get up into the low 50’s. I’ll bet Basil would like to see 50 right now. How’s the snow buddy?
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Gk looking good .Melly here rockys sleeping.I so enjoyed all your pictures ! I knew you were a winner!I still think we should have a play date If we put your age in human years and don't with mine we are very close in age.Here comes Rocky!Good job Gk pictures were great except the grooming table ,I just had to stop there!The last two weeks mom has shaved everyone and she looks like she might just restart!

In these photos you shared, you look so relaxed and happy and it's easy to see that you are having a great time being with Jan, Karen and your newest friends! I'll bet you are back home now and I'll bet you,&F&S are anxious for Martha to return from Sydney, Australia! Hey poetic Basil, you are a very clever fellow! MS Zoe, it's so great to see that you are commenting again and you sound like such a nice little girl-hehehe! Maddox, you must be so happy about your handsome son-I love him, too!

You represent your chow chow breed so well. You are not just a great show dog!! We are all so proud!! You play dress up really great also. It is a pleasure GK !!
    Love you

  • Congratulations G.K. & Team G.K. (Karen & Jan :lol: ) You are such a big boy star. There's no stopping you now. You and your traveling buds Wolfie and Robin look like a little 'Doggie Entourage.' Bet F & S can't wait to see their show stopping brother.

    Congrats to your Mom Basil. That's great that her work sells out faster than she can make it. Welcome back Zoe! If you're going to book your Mom's trip next year, make sure you're along for the ride.

  • way to go my pal, G.K., I won't be posting for who knows how long, I collasped in the yard last nite and had to be carried inside..thanks, James and Lucinda..Just want all my dog buddies to know it has been great chatting with you...see you on the other side, love, Cora-Belle

  • WTG! Go GK!

  • Congrats GK!!! Way to go with a sweep. All those pretty ribbons. Hopefully someone has made a scrapbook for you. I had the weekend off and won't be going to any dog shows until mid-January. Maybe you'll be there and I can meet you in person. Enjoy the spotlight. love to Cora-Belle.

  • Dear Cora-Belle, OMG! I sure hope you are feeling better! My prayers and thoughts are with you now! Dear God please help our friend get better real soon! Bless you cora-Belle! Love, Dudley Do Right and Jan (his Mom)

  • Dear Cora-Belle I am saying prayers and sending good thoughts for you sweetie to get better as soon as possible. I love your adventures as a cattle dog. Please everyone here on the DW, say your prayers for our pal Cora-Belle.

  • GK,
    I am so sorry. I always have a lot going on when I get back from the shows and I have a litter of little chow babies that I am taking care of right now so I didn't get to post about your weekend. You did great, as usual. We are all very proud of you. My mom, Jean, was not home yesterday but she wanted you to know that she too thinks you are very special and quite handsome.
    Cora-Belle, I have tears running down my face as I read about you. Please, please have Lucinda or James keep us up to date on your condition. We all love you so very much and love hearing about what you are doing. I just feel like I know all of you and I can picture you running all over chasing your critters and having a blast. You are a no nonsense kind of girl so please get better and come back to us.
    Love,
    Karen
