Adventures of Frick and Frack - Westminster Edition

So we settled in last night to watch Westminster on the big screen. The big kids were out with us and settled in across laps and pillows with their favorite chewing toys. Everyone was happy, which considering the mud bowl that is our yard prevented anyone from getting their lunchtime romp, is a miracle. I digress...

The Hound Group comes in the ring and no one notices. That is, until a Beagle starts baying. Yup, it's all over. Bear and Ransom are right up nose to nose with the tv barking their fool heads off. After much yelling and lots of squirts from the listerine squirt bottle, they settle down again. This time, however, they are watchful of those big bad doggies on tv. Then, the Borzoi starts it's down and back. Obviously it was going to come through the tv and eat everyone (NOT!). Yup, there those two go again. And when they start to bark, so does everyone else in the house.

Finally we were able to quiet everyone and the boys both started to watch again...Ransom with a bored expression, but Bear was rather interested. We told him that he needed to learn how to show like all those big dogs. He looked at us, looked at the tv, looked at us again, sighed, laid his head back onto the pillow and watched.

By the time the Herding Group was on, he was on his back, sound asleep, with his feet waving in the air. He was obviously not absorbing the lessons...

I told baby Frost to watch the big time but she was more interested in chewing on her rawhide bone or her Daddy than watching the big Show.

It's so funny...Phantom will watch, until a Cardigan comes on, then he turns his head and looks at me like HE should be there! He liked to watch Harry P, because he had shown against him a few times and seemed to recognize Harry...he would wag his tail and watch every move. But, let it be another Cardigan, and no way will he watch! LOL These dogs are too smart for their own good!
