Westminster Photos of Rory

I may have to persuade Karen to try to send whiskey despite the laws. Nothing like a good whiskey to cure what ails you. (My parents used it on teething baby gums with phenomenal success as you can guess.) For now, I guess I'll live without.

I'm most sorry that I won't be up to joining friends in Paris for the World Show. It's on my list of shows I would really love to attend at some point and what better combination than a trip to Paris. Sadly, that's just too soon.

I have received confirmation that I'm fully licensed now to judge half of group three, including my beloved Siberian Huskies. I'm on permit (similar to an American provisional) now for the balance of group three. I should be back on my feet towards the end of April and will be celebrating by judging in Montreal at the end of May. I`m looking forward to it. My sister, her son and the Music Man will be coming along for fun.

I got some pics today of Rory and Iris in the ring at Westminster:


  1. What wonderful photos, I love the coloring on the dog!
    I'm sorry to hear you aren't able to attend the World Show, sounds like it would have been fun!

We will miss you at the World Show but health and rehab deffo come first hun .. would have loved you to have seen Dublins sister all grown up !! Congrats on judging license and love the pix from Westminster .. must start saving then I can pay you guys a visit and take in some of your shows :)) TTFN

  3. How exciting to see them at Westminster. Getting qualified for judging sounds like a long road and also a huge responsibility. I remember when I showed Mango how nervous that judge made me. Sigh.
