Hamlet and Yorick Visit the Big Apple

What a difference one week makes. New York City was battered by the worst storm in its history the last weekend in October.

The previous weekend, however–October 20 and 21–was mild and sunny, a perfect fall day for a walk along the Hudson River.

Why are our Virginia dogs in NYC? For the Meet the Breed dog show in the Jacob Javits Center!

The dogs pose with a statue of Senator Jacob Javits at the convention center.

It also happened to be my sister Joyce’s 50th birthday–and Andrew’s 13th–so we went to the city to celebrate in style.

Andrew and Aunt Joyce celebrate their birthday weekend with a bit of craziness!

A nice group of KCUSA memebers were able to attend the MTB event. The most FAQ was: “How do you pronounce that?” By the end of the day, I was hoarse from saying “Nederlandse Kooikerhondje!”

While at the conventions, Hamlet and Yorick were able to pass their Canine Good Citizenship test, and were awarded caps, which everyone enjoyed.
