Just a Girls weekend out!  (November 10 thru 12, 2017)
Intentionally or Unintentionally It was all about being the girls weekend out.  Teresa drove the old 1995 RV from central Arkansas to Springfield
Missouri and back driving only at night.  Ideally should have been a day trip, however that would have been too, safe.  We only left the road
once when we were tutting along in Harrison a Semi-Tractor Trailer obviously breaking the speed limit when passing caused the air between us
to literally blow us off the road. Teresa kept the RV under control never hit a mailbox or sign just a little bumpy going over the curbs.  So from
that point on Teresa would travel in the left lane through towns with curbs to prevent this from happing again.  We had a great weekend just us
girls. It was Teresa, Lisa, Zion, Bear and Sassy.  Bear after a year off from showing and nearly loosing her in July to Disseminated Intravascular
Coagulation (DIC), which we may never know the cause.  Bear dominated the breed ring both days with Zion's help going Best of Breed,
earning her first Grand Champion points (2 majors of 5 points and 2 defeats) Sassy continues to be the reserve queen.  All Breed Judges really
don't know what to think when it comes to her lack of a rough coat and no furnishings.  We will eventually finish her but every point is going to
be tough, we love her willingness to keep giving us consistently sound movement and no nonsense time in the ring. Now at 10 points with one
major we will be in search of that last major.  For now she is getting a well deserved rest after traveling to Wilmington OH, Benton AR and
Springfield MO in the span of one months time.  All three destinations we drove the RV.  Way more convenient and we enjoyed wonderfully
cooked meals by Lisa everyday.  The dogs were much more relaxed, they also got to role play being guard dogs.  We would put up xpens in
front of the  RV and this seemed to give them permission to bark at anyone or anything passing by.  Little do they know..HaHa.  Holidays are
once again upon us.  Hope everyone has a wonderful, joyous and fun packed holiday season.
