The Pet Show Results Are In!

We took our dog Maya and my mom’s dog Penny to the pet show today.

Maya ended up winning two awards today!  She won an award for the “Longest Tail” (yes they did measure it to be exact!)  and an award for the “Best Tricks” (she sat and shook a paw with my hand).  It was a long and exhausting day for the big girl.  Here she is getting a drink of water.

Maya and mom’s dog Penny got along just fine.  We got a huge surprise though.  When my mom was trying to decide whether or not she wanted a Corgi or not, my brother and I went and looked at some Corgi puppies.  The breeder had two females left, a red and a tri-color.  They were both so cute, but the pups were being reserved quickly so we reserved the tri-color one for mom.

When mom saw the pictures of both dogs she was immediately drawn to the “red” on.  We called the breeder and changed our reservation to Penny.  We had always wondered what happened to Bella.

Right before the pet show started a woman walked up with a young looking tri-color Corgi.   Long story short we started talking and it was Penny’s sister, Bella (now renamed Cud.dle)!  Her owner also happens to be my doctor and his wife!

We couldn’t get over how alike their personalities are!

Penny won a couple awards too.  The award you see in the picture was for “Most Well-Mannered Peanut Butter Eater”(they watched each of them eat some peanut butter off a spoon-Maya wouldn’t eat it)

It was a lot of fun.  Maya is back at John’s mom and dad’s house.  She was exhausted and her hips were bothering her a little so I thought we’d take her back to where she’s comfortable (and things are much calmer than here).

Swimming lessons begin Monday evening for all the kids so hopefully I’ll have time to update afterwards!!
