Wow, I can't believe it has been a week already since I drove home from the National in Atlanta, GA. I had so much fun showing dogs, showing and selling artwork in my booth, visiting with friends and staying with three really good friends in the beautiful Atlanta Hilton Hotel. The show was huge, and judge Magnus Hagstedt did a wonderful job of sorting through all his beautiful entries, as did Carolyn Bowers in the futurity and all the other super judges. Anyway, here are some photos taken by one of my good friends and roomies, Paige Zalnoski, along with the highlights for me.
