Hey hey hey blogaroos. Squirmy no-ribbons-for-you Wormy – here to tell you all about my very first beauty pageant practice match. Well as The Boss would say, I got dumped. I doubt it had anything to do with the fact that I spun in circles when the judge tried to examine me and was a little bit shy. And I sat down when she tried to touch my orbs. But I quickly got over my shyness and I did attempt to ricochet off her on the diagonal. So, I was clearly happy. And I ran around like crazy. But my athletic prowess didn’t get me any ribbons. And there were no other PONs there. So needless to say, we didn’t get any Group ribbons.
BUT BUT BUT- MY GIRLFRIEND GENA WON THE WHOLE MATCH!!!!!!! So I got to travel with the winner! I KNEW she could win! She looked really pretty.
I think I brought her good luck. She has to take me along to all future shows as her good luck charm. I’m more fun than a rabbit foot.
Here’s a shot taken of me working the crowd during the Group judging. She had good treats! But I’m not sure that’s how you are supposed to be standing….
Here’s a shot that’s a bit better and looking more dog showish. Not a perfect pose but given that it’s hard for me to even keep my feet still, it’s not too bad.
My Enforcer said we need to practice more. Ya think? How’s a guy supposed to know what to do when he’s never even seen a dog show before? My Enforcer said she’s going to haul out old videos of Westminster and Crufts for me to watch. I think we should just watch the movie “Best in Show”. It’s a comedy – which is closer to how I approach most things.
So that’s my first intro to beauty pageants. I’m so happy for my girlfriend. I can’t wait to see her in a real show! And maybe if I practice more, I can go someday too!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
