The Best Day of the Year?

Yesterday Mom and Dad and Finnegan went to the Montgomery Kennel Club Show outside of Philly. Mom says it's her favorite day of the year! (Can't imagine that it is better than my birthday, but whatever.)
Mom and Dad were particularly happy to meet Finnegan's father for the first time. He is Dalriada's The Boss, they call him Bruce.

Boy, is he ever a handsome fella and Mom says she thinks the Finnegan has his daddy's expression. Dad says that Brice and Finnegan behaved similarly and says it was funny to watch Bruce jump into his momma's arms just like Finney does with our Dad. Bruce's breeders are Cara Campbell and Mike Doleski and they were there and shared a lot of info with mom and dad. Mom says that they were very nice and that Finney's breeder, Mary Raggett from Edenshire was there too and it was so nice to see her again.

Mom and Dad also got to see Casey and Bebe---you may remember that Casey was a rescue dog that was here with us for a very short time. Mom and Dad said he is doing really well and that he and Bebe (who I think is the cutest little girl I've ever seen) get along really well. Bebe hasn't been feeling real great lately, so it was nice to see her well.

Below is a picture of some of the Fox Terrier Network and WireFoxTerrier group friends. The dogs from left to right are Finnegan with my dad, Lucy with her mom, then it's Bebe being held by her mom, Casey led by his daddy, and Abby in the Eagle's jersey with her mommy.
You probably can't tell form the picture, but my daddy has a Fox Terrier Network T-shirt on..heheheh! Good promotion dad!!

Anyway, they all had a wonderful time there at the show and Finney came back struttin' his stuff last night showing off. Brat! Dad says that Finnegan's registered name should be Edenshire's Moving Violation...heheehehhe!!

Hey Mackie: Thanks for sharing the pictures, but we agree with you about "best day of the year" and when it should be declared.

I think, your birthday, my birthday, my gotcha day, and so on all qualify for "best day" honors. So tell your mom, it may have been a "nice day" but the best day is always one she shares with you.

Kissies Brother
