Sunday thoughts, folks!🎡
Always keep your eye on the prize 👀 and when I say prize I mean the super yummy treat my favorite person Ashley is holding 🤤
Obsessed with these photos from the dog show!! I can never get any good ones of Jaxson in the ring because I have to hide from him! If he sees me he focuses too much on where I am and less on his showing duties lol. Very thankful some talented photographers were there to take photos of my boy!
If anyone has any questions regarding conformation shows or anything, feel free to pm me!

Words can't explain how much this man meant to our family. A role model to us all. The kindest, most caring person who worried about everyone else first. At the young age of 51, he left this earth due to a failed kidney/pancreas transplant. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. Never forgotten. We love you, Uncle Herm. 9.14.50-9.24.01
❌ Stop Animal Cruelty! ❌
The Guggenheim is gearing up for a special exhibit to air for three months beginning Oct 6, 2017 called "Art and China after 1989." If the Guggenheim's plans stay as they are, the exhibit will feature several distinct instances of unmistakable cruelty against animals in the name of art.
In one example, artists Peng Yu and Sun Yuan tether four pairs of American pit bulls to eight wooden treadmills for a live exhibit.
The dogs are faced off against one another, running "at" each other but prevented from touching one another, which is a stressful and frustrating experience for animals trained to fight.
The dogs get wearier and wearier, their muscles more and more prominent, and their mouths increasingly salivate.
At this live 2003 "performance" in China, a video was recorded, complete with close-up shots of the dogs' frantic, foaming faces.
This 7-minute video will be on display at the Guggenheim exhibit (information from NY Times article "Where the Wild Things Are: China’s Art Dreamers at the Guggenheim").
In another example, artist Xu Bing tattooed meaningless characters all over the bodies of two pigs, a boar and a sow, who were put on display, mating, in a museum exhibit in Beijing in 1994.
The Guggenheim will feature the video of that "performance" as well.
Finally, this exhibit will feature live animals (reptiles, amphibians, insects) that are trapped in a glass enclosure for attendee viewing.
According to the NY Times article, "During the three-month exhibition some creatures will be devoured; others may die of fatigue. The big ones will survive. From time to time, a New York City pet shop will replenish the menagerie with new bugs."
