Mom is a little excited, too! Because her new sewing machine arrived today. She carried it all the way from the post office. Which isn't too far - but it was big and heavy enough after those 5-10 minutes.
She also sort of finished what was supposed to be a bed for Virus, but let's say making up pattern as you go along sometimes doesn't quite work out. Sometimes it would be better to actually have a pattern ;)
I also wanted to show what Mom's bought for me - my very own tent!It's a collapsible, fabric crate. So I'll have somewhere to relax at the show that doesn't take up so much space at home and isn't too heavy to carry. I have a collapsible metal crate - but it weighs about as much as me according to Mom. BOL!
It's got a little padded flooring and plenty of ventilation!
I'll give it my seal of approval.
Virus came for a visit, too!
It's been smelling a bit like a new tent - very plasticy - so we've had it up since Sunday hoping it would air out a bit. I don't think it's gonna bug me, though. So Mom doesn't really need to worry.
She found the whippet clip to hold our number. I'm sure nobody cares it's the wrong breed. She has so far not found the lovely, braided kangaroo leather show lead sweet Linda made and sent from Australia, though. She knows it's here somewhere... But living in such a small space we have LOTS of boxes with stuff to get things out of the way. And all the other show leads are at grandma's place. Mom called auntie Tove, though, after going to the store where they were either sold out or only had red, blue or beige leads (I'm neither of these colours unless Mom is painting and I'm helping). She said she'd head up into the attic to find one. I'll be dog number 8 in the ring tomorrow morning (if all show) and we don't want to need running by the vendor booths to look for a lead.
Here's a picture of the lead, though! Isn't Linda talented!?
Big kisses, Bajas
Edit: It's Saturday morning and we'll be leaving soon! We look forwards to talking with lots of people and dogs and take loads of pictures. If Mom doesn't get too distracted. BOL!
