GK Wins Again!

Posted by F&S

You may have heard that GK went to another dog show this past weekend.  As usual, his breeder, Karen Tracy of Liontamer Pazzazz Chows, came to pick him up and took GK to her breeding facility to prepare him for the big show.  GK, we Frenchies are so proud of you!

  • :-) WOW GK you look gorgeous! Congratulations on your wins ;-) proud of you fluffy face!!
    How lucky is that little girl to have gotten to schmooze with you... I imagined it to be me kissing your soft fur.
    Jan K. You did an outstanding job, as always. Ann Brennan how nice for you to visit the show and see GK :-)

    Kitty finally came home...hard to believe she was gone all day in this heat...good to have her home.
    Till later,
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • ..G.K., you are my hero!...and you are one handsome doggie...Zoe, how cool your mom was there..I am going to bed and dream about being a show dog..over and out, Chewy

  • Another round of applause for GK! Congratulations!

    I agree a trophy room is an excellent idea.

    GK is so regal looking and really does show well.

    How fun a Gluey appeared at the show! :)

  • Good morning,
    Lookin' good GK. Lookin' good. You did great son. There was real strong competition there over the weekend and you held your own. Way to go. So, you got to meet little Zoe's mom Ann and her sister Carolyn who happens to be Chloe's mom. Karen said they were really nice and she was so happy to meet them. I think they had a good time at the dog show. Karen said she could tell that both of them really love their dogs just by the stories they were telling her about them. Well, I am headed to the deck for some R & R before the kennel workers get here. It is a hard job to bark orders at them when I don't bark too often. Hehehehehehehe
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello Champion G.K., Girls, & all my Glue Squad Buddies,
    I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. If the photos weren't on today of the dog show and all the friends, I was going to be sad. Yahoooooo and double Yahoooooooo!!!!
    I think we all will be watching G.K. at the Westminster Dog Show the way he is going. Mama Ann and Mama Carolyn, if there was an award for Moms that were Beauty Queens, you two would have tied for first place. Zoe and Chloe, you must be sooo proud. This is the first Glue Squad encounter---hehehehehehe. All Mom and I have to say is, it is about time. I can see Mama Martha will be designing the trophy room soon. Have a GEM of a day.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Morning Girls, GK & Glue Squad - Congratulations, GK, you've done it again. Bet it was fun to be out with Karen & Jan, you've made them very proud with all your wins. It was great to see Zoe's Mom and Chloe's Mom at the show, I'm sure they enjoyed the day and to spend time with you, Karen & Jan must have been fun. Great job, your Dad & Mom/Eden must be soooo very proud. Maddox, you will have to start thinking of the plans for GK's trophy room after the kennels are done, hehe..Happy Birthday, James Dean..hope Mom & Abby have many surprises planned for you today. You will have to let us know, okay??..okay!! Well, the weatherman says it's going to reach the 90's today, with humidity and maybe t-storms late tomorrow afternoon, but after that cooler temps come back. Can't wait. Zoe, how did Mom make out with her doctor's appt? Dixie Boy, all okay with your Mom???? Ruby, how's the nursing skills doing? Chloe, did you help Uncle Mark yesterday?? Hi to all my other buddies, Mom needs to check mail then get ready to head out. Have a great day everyone.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

  • Good morning ladies and G.K.
    Congratulations big guy! You sure had a lovely entourage for this show!
    I had to laugh with you when I saw picture #9!
    Have a great day everybody.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Good Morning F & S

    Congratulations GK!! Mom said she fell in love when she met you. I also hear you got lots of hugs from EVERYONE!!

    Ok can I tell you how pissed off I am that mom didn't take me on the road trip to meet GK, Karen and Jan!! She hasn't stopped talking about it since she got home. Doesn't she know that every day she gets to be around show material!! What am I chopped liver??? I'm going next time for sure. In fact I think I'll make myself a sash made out of TP and write Ms. Zoe - Best of Breed and walk around the show. Maybe a little crown for my head would look cute too :)

    Maddox my mom said your mom and Jan are really fun. My Aunt and mom had such a great day!

    So it appears summer is back - hot and humid here in South Jersey. I'm ready for fall, pumpkin pie and falling leaves. Heck (notice how I'm cleaning up my act - no hell) that sounds like a Hallmark moment ;)

    Well have a great day everyone. I plan on staying indoors in the a/c - too hot for me.

    Zoe

  • Aw, congrats again GK! I think that the biggest prize that you won that day was the heart of that little girl.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I really don’t know why other dogs even enter the show when GK is there. He usually wins hands down. He’s a champion for sure; chip off the ole block I would say. I know Maddox would agree with that 100 percent. As for me, I don’t enter any of those shows because I don’t want other dogs to feel bad about loosing. Hehehehehe Now my head is getting a little bigger it seems. I’m not a show dog; just a working dog. I work at eating, napping, whining, and taking walks. Sometimes I am left at home to be a guard dog. I’m really good at that; I have a very deep bark and growl. Now that I have had my breakfast I have to do that second thing; napping.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, Congratulations again sweet, handsome GK for winning more Dog Shows and these photos and comments about you are so marvelous and I would love to hug you like cute little Laurel did! You have the best ladies helping you go to these Dog Shows and it's fun to see them, also! Karen and Jan always do a great job presenting you and of course Maddox is extremely proud of you, also! Sure would be fun to see you in person some day and to see F&S, also!!! Hope you have a great day and I'm sure Martha is extremely proud of you again! Happy Birthday sweet, handsome James Dean! Sure hope you have a great day and would love to meet you, too! I finally got to my great Vet, Dr. Felts yesterday and he checked me thoroughly and he did find some awful fleas that I had never had before and he gave Mom some pills to get rid of them! I was so overwhelmed that I had a very restless night and kept waking Mom up and was panting like crazy! Mom gave me my pill with my food this morning and I am on my way to finally sleep better! I have to go back on the 23rd and have 2 of my teeth removed because they are infected and I have to stay at the Vet over night! Have never done that before! Hope all of you are doing well and have a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Special for JAMES DEAN,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR JIMMY..............HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
    and many more!!!!

    Could ya hear me Jimmy, could ya, could ya?

    I was sooo excited about the Glue Squad encounter, that my songbird forgot to come out. Hehehehehehe

    What are you doing for your special day? Catnip party?????????

    Love ya Jimmy,
    Ruby

  • It's Zoe again - I forgot to wish Mr. James Dean a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

    Hope you have a wonderful day :)

    Zoe

  • Hi gang,
    Sorry I cut it short this morning but I wanted to get in some deck time because it is supposed to be HOT again today. Yuk. Ok, so I must tell James Dean that in honor of his birthday today I am going to read either a book or a magazine because I know how passionate he is about reading. I went on a search around the house for a book to read. Karen has a set of encyclopedias and about 100 books on Chow Chows. How the heck am I supposed to deal with that. But, do not be discouraged James Dean. Thankfully, I have some magazines that I have stashed away. I don't think you are familiar with them. The name of the magazine is called "Chow Girls in the Buff". They come in a plain brown wrapper. I must admit the magazine is 99% pictures but there is one page that has an article. Soooooo, I promise you that in honor of your birthday I will read the article first and then look at the pictures. Happy Birthday James Dean.
    Zoe, in my eyes, you are a Champion, a Princess and high Priestess of the TP world. You rock.
    Back to work. Enjoy the day my Glue Squad buddies
    Love each and every one of you to pieces,
    Maddox

  • Good Morning Girls,
    Ok... GK congrats on your win and I am so proud of you. BUT.... I am so mad at mom. She dind't tell me she was going to see my one true love GK :( I heard her talking about going out with Aunt Ann but no mention of a dog show OR seeing GK. She knows I love him, she knows I want to meet him but does she take me......NO :( No wonder she has been so nice buying me extra peanut butter bones and letting me sleep on her bed. She is feeling quilty for not taking me. All I can say is she better take me next time or else ;)
    Anyway, enough venting.... Yes Missy Chow I was a big help to Uncle Mark :) I think too much of a help though because he put me outside after a while LOL
    He will be back today though and he better not give me a hard time because I am not in the mood after the GK situation LOL
    I hope everyone has a great day. Me I will be swimming. The heat is back here in NJ :(

    Love,
    Chloe xx

  • Hello GK, F&S, and all the GS buddies:
    Wow, what a handsome boy you are GK, congratulations on your wins at the show - a trophy room is definitely needed at the rate you are going. It was also so nice to put a face to a name, nice to see Ann and Carolyn on the blog - one day we need to arrange a Glue Squad weekend - somewhere kind of central (if that is possible!). I think we need to make this happen. We would love to attend!
    Happy Birthday to James Dean today, hope your day is special and that you get lots of treats as well.
    Well its been stinky hot and humid for these last few days, supposed to be more seasonal on Friday, whoever is sending us this heat (all you GSquadders who live in the southern states!) please take it back, we don't want it either. Ah well, fall is coming, its just taking its time. We'll hide in the A/C for a while longer - look forward to some cooler air. Well gotta go, love and Beardie bounces to all, Martha, Miz Lu and Riley boy.

  • ♫ Happy Birthday Meuww - Meuww to James Dean ♫

    Prrurrrs from Kitty =^. .^=
    love from delia

  • Hello G.K., Ann, Karen and glue squad friends,
    G.K. looked stunning in these photographs! Maddox, Eden, Karen you must be so very proud of your boy. It is wonderful that Zoe's Mom Ann was able to meet him and see him compete!
    Zoe, we think you must be show material too and hugs for you! Delia, so glad Kitty came home safe after a whole day away.
    Missy Chow, thank you very much for remembering my special day.
    Purrrrs to all,
    James Byron Dean the persian boy cat

  • Congratulations to GK and Happy Birthday to James Dean!!! Sorry to just give snaps and run, but Mom is in the midst of getting ready to go do her vending booth at the French Bulldog National Specialty, so LOTS of goings on here!!
    A bientot!

  • I'm a back!

    Hey James Dean!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, BUDDY!
    Have a super day. :)
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hi Y'all,
    Great job GK!!! Also, let's not forget Karen and Jan.
    Hey, maybe we should have our own Glue Squad Dog Show. Of, course GK would have to be a judge since he's the professional and he'd just win anyway. I could probably win for best broke tail! HAHAHH! We'd also have to have a Cat Show too. Unless the cats want to dress like dogs, and then it could get a bit interesting. Okay, I have to stop, it's just getting weird now.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES DEAN! You're alright, for a cat and I hope you have a wonder filled day. Maybe a catnip cocktail and a good book to celebrate!
    Missy Chow, It's an annual check and it's all good!!! She still gets apprehensive about it but the c-doctor keeps an eye on her every 6mo. Only 2 more years of that to go and then the BIG PARTY!
    Martha, Miz Lu, and Riley, we didn't mean to send the heat/humidity your way. It just fell over onto your side of the Mason/Dixon. It's not that peachy here either! The AC still doesn't work. Having trouble getting the circuit board or something. It's only a bit cooler inside the house than outside. I'm not sleeping well because of all the noise with the windows open. George is being impossible, the terrible 2's! He's put two holes in my bed!!!! I'm going to get him back when it gets cooler, just you wait! Mis bought him a stuffed duck yesterday and he proceeded to tear one wing off and un-stuff him within an hour! He's worse than a border collie. That's when Mis and her Sis took him to the pond and tried to see if he could swim. I, myself would have thrown him off the end of the pier! All and all, he did ok. He prefers his wading pool right now. But they got a few good pics.
    Y'all have a Doggy Good Day!
    Dixie Boy

  • ..one..two..three...here it goes..HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAMES DEAN!!..and in your honor I will curl up with Lucinda and read a book..and Black Mama says she and the tribe will go hunting for a trophy rodent...have a great day, buddy! over and out....Chewy and the crowd

  • Oh my, Shame on me. Today is my uncle Abram's birthday. He is 10 today. His AKC name is Pazzazz's 9 11 Tribute. He is my mom's brother. He is funny. Karen tells him it is his birthday today and he wags his tail like crazy. Goofy dog. He was injured when he was younger. He goes for acupuncture every week and it seems to be helping. He is walking much better. He has the ladies crawling all over him too. I guess handsome gene must be in the family. Along with a big ego. Hehehehehehehe. Anyway, Happy Birthday to Abram too.
    Maddox

  • Congrats G.K. once again! Kirby Bear's right, why do other dogs bother? :lol: Terribly late. Computer maintenance issues all day long! I'll be back later to read all of the great comments but I didn't want to miss wishing...

    Mr. Jimmy Dean a very Happy Happy Birthday!!!!! :smile:

  • Sophie & Chloe (The Cheweenies)want to welcome Chewie, the naughty red cattle dog, to the family!! Can't wait to bring our new brother, Mr. Mayer, down to swim in the river with Chewie! Lucinda and James have a life vest that's just his size! Our mom rescued him from a very bad place and we're doing our best to show him how cool it is to be a dog!
    Congrats to GK on his latest win and Happy Birthday to James Dean!!
    later guys.....the wild bunch in Washington

  • Congratulations, GK!! You are one beautiful animal, and I would say there are many more awards in your future.

  • Paw Paw would be so proud of you GK. You are doing well and having a good time too. You are so regal. I sure miss my two chows Chao-li and Mrs. Bosley. You represent all the chow chows out there. Take good care GK.
