So Mom and Dad bought me a new treat this past weekend, it was called the Pedigree Super Chew. Sounded yummy enough and according to the package it was "the healthy, long-lasting chew with a delicious outer layer and rich meaty center dogs love. Unlike tennis shoes and table legs, PEDIGREE® Super Chew is a treat that’s highly digestible and nutritionally complete." Can't get much better than that right? Mom and Dad figured they'd get me the large dog one, so it would last me longer. Looking back it was a bad idea but the directions aren't clear. I consumed the whole thing in one night. Should I have used restraint? Probably but it was so, so yummy!

Anyway, I got an upset tummy. Very upset tummy and have been dealing with such for the last three days... granted I snacked on some "unmentionables" at the barn while visiting Buttercup so that is probably to blame as well. BUT- the whole deal started with this Super Chew and I wanted to get the word out that you should follow the package directions... just like you should for Greenies!

As for me, there will be no more sampling of Super Chews or their cousins the Pedigree Jumbones (I throw up everytime I eat those, even when Mom follows the package directions or even gives me less than recommended!) So remember- read those packages!! Mommy and I learned our lesson!

Mommy and I plan on watching at least part of the Westminster Kennel Club judging tonight, though we won't be nearly as excited as we will be tomorrow (the herding group is judged on Tuesday). We'll be cheering for the shelties!
My great-grandpop won Best of Breed at Westminster in 1999 and 2000... he's a pretty cool dog. His name is Ch. Shadow Hill's Air Force One but they call him Boomer.

I'd like to show at Westminster, but Mom says its only for the dogs that complete in breed classes... I don't do that but if they held obedience classes I'd want in! Even if I can't make it there I'll still be barking encouragement to my sheltie cousins, go shelties! Take the Herding Group and go on to Best In Show!
I'm following the breed classes so far and I thought I'd post the winners of my friends' breeds so they could see if they have any Champions in their family tree!

First up- The Newfies! The Best of Breed winner is:
Ch Pouch Cove's Head Of State
Sire: Ch Darbydale's All Rise Pouch Cove
Dam: Ch Pouch Cove Casts Its Vote
Stay tuned on updates for more breeds!
