Finnegan is fat?

Sunday mom and Dad took Ollie and I to grandma and grandpa's and headed off with Finnegan to Pennsylvania to see the Montgomery Kennel Club all terrier show. Mom raves about this thing all year long...it's kinda annoying- mostly because I never get to go. Mom always says something like "There are hundreds of dogs there and you aren't friendly"...sheez...how rude.

Finnegan gets to go every year because he's "friendly" and his breeders are there. I have to say I find myself flat out laughing my head off about this year's report. Most of you know that I'm a big boy, right? I'm pushing 40 lbs...that's right---just more of me to love. I was always a big boy but with the predinosne every other day, I really got big.

Anyway, Mom and Dad took Finney to the show and both of his breeders said he's fat! Heheheehheheh! HE'S FAT!!! I rolled around laughing when I heard this! Mom was less than thrilled... Finney is about 25 lbs and pretty tall for a wire but I've never thought of him as fat. Anyway, mom says that Finney and I are going to have to get back to doing the long walks with her...it's good for her too as she could loose some too--hehehehe!

Here is Finney enjoying the show.

Mom and Dad and Finney got to meet a lot of wires and their people- Vicki with Samson the Agility wire- Lucia Hackett with Bella the beautiful show dog who was headed off to earth dog the following day, a nice souple with Megan the ginger little girl, Dot and her hubby and Crystal, got to see Kathy Barger who has Lucy (although Lucy wasn't there) and many more. They got to meet some of the rescue adopters and got to see Finnegan's breeder, Mary Raggett who had Finney's mom and Cara and Mike from Dalriada who has Finney's dad. It was really a nice day and mom and dad and Finnegan came home really tired....wish I could go....I would have gotten a kick out of them telling mom that Finnegan is fat! heheheheeh! Made my week...

Finnie is not fat. He is substantial! My muzzer came back from new Yawk with some crazy ideas too....I am too fat, Teka is too fat (this is TRUE!) I am too tall, etc,etc.

I just climbed on her lap and gave her kissies. Haven't heard a peep since.

Tell Finnie it is worth a try.

In substantial brotherhood,

We wish we could have gone too, Finnie! We hear the Airedale quilt was auctioned off but unfortunately, mom didn't win it!
It must be fun seeing all of those beautiful doggies!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Looking good for your size Finnie! Tell them all you're saving up for a rainy day...


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Mackie...you weigh almost forty pounds?

All three terriers bow toward the Eastern Shore with new respect in their eyes...


And Mumsie yelled at me cuz I went 20.5 up from my usual scrawny 19 at the vetties this week. Sheeshch....

Oh we're soooooooooooo jelly you went to Montgomery...Lacie wants to know if ya saw any Lakies there? Her breeder is from Philly and usually shows there.....

Bet you laughed about Finnigan...

Seems to me you have to weigh 25 lbs to be in the Substantial Club...who started that anyway? Was it Jackson???

Barkin' at ya!

Hmmm. We think we'll stay outta the fat not fat debate and just say... if it leads to more and longer walkies.... who's complainin'? (Forty pounds? Really? That makes 25 seem like a drop in the bucket.)

Enjoy your walks. And your carrots.
