G.K. is off to Another Championship!
Posted by Francesca
It’s been several weeks since G.K. competed in a dog show when he, of course, won Best of Breed! Well, now he’s gearing up for the big one – The Westminster Kennel Club Show. In preparation, Karen Tracy and Jan Kolnik came for G.K. the other day to show him in West Friendship, Maryland. We’re told that he will see his father, Maddox, who is staying with his co-owner, Gerry Roberts, as Karen, Jan, and G.K. are also guests of Gerry’s. Lots of luck, little brother!
1 Who is that coming up the walk? Is that whom I think it is? Yes, it is!
2 It's my pal, Karen Tracy, who's here to pick me up for another dog show! Oh, I missed you too, Karen!
3 And Jan Kolnik, my handler! Oh Jan, I've been practicing! You're going to be so proud of what I can do!
4 Okay, Jan! I'm ready to go! What else do we need to get ready? Frenchies, can you help me?
5 GK, we're sure proud of your winnings, but I do get a little misty eyed when you pack up for your dog shows! We just love cuddling up next to you, especially on these cold winter days!
6 Oh girls, I always miss you when I'm off traveling, but it's something I've got to do! I come from a long line of show dogs. It's in my blood!
7 Sharkey! This is no time to get emotional! It's not like he's leaving forever! GK, we'll hold down the farm while you're gone. There, you're all packed. I put some extra special treats in this bag for you!
8 Okay Jan, I'm all set to go! Let's head out to the car!
9 Look, Sharkey! GK gets to ride with other dogs! See, you have no reason to worry about him! It looks like fun!
10 Hi! I'm Robin and this is Tiva! We're Cavalier King Charles Spaniels! GK, we sure had fun at the last show! I'm so glad we're traveling together again!
11 It's very nice to meet you two. I'm Sharkey! Can you promise to take good care of our dear brother?
12 I'm Francesca! I'm so glad you two are going with GK. Tell Sharkey not to be such a worrywart!
13 Goodbye, Frenchies! I'll write to you from the road! Okay, Jan and Karen! We're all set to go. Maryland or bust!
14 Gee, now that he's gone, I really do miss the big ole fluff ball!
