It’s beginning to be clear that I, G.K., have the makings of a true champion.  I’m breaking into the dog show circuit and I’m winning!  I was watching Sharkey and Francesca the other day acting very strangely.  They seem to have a misconception about what really goes on at a dog show.  I think Karen …

We, Frenchies, were down by the greenhouse, watching the guys move all the tropical plants into the new heated hoop house for winter storage.  Most of the plants survived our freak snowstorm a couple of weeks ago, except for a few that will need some TLC.  One, of those, in particular, caught our attention.
