Best in Show

It's official. Zero has been invited to the Westminster Kennel Club show for ranking in the top 5 of Rhodesian Ridgeback breed points up to October 31, 2010. The list was posted on November 16 on the WKC website and his invitation arrived at Erin's house a couple days ago. It is now a real and exciting prospect to be making arrangements to go to Madison Square Garden in February. Zero's entry still has to get there before closing but as long as it does he is officially entered in the show. No waiting in line for VIPs!! Erin took a quick photo of the invite and sent it to me, it's a pretty cool thing to see.

According to Erin, the pre-filled entry form had my name spelt right and everything, something I am always on the lookout for because my name, as simple as it is, gives people a lot of trouble. Now we just wait to make sure Zero's entry made it to New York. Assuming it does we then we sit through a long winter before heading to New York to watch Zero and Juliet show in the breed class. Some people are a little confused about how it works and are asking if Zero will be on TV - in order for that to happen he would have to win Best of Breed because only the groups are shown on television, however, WKC does have breed videos of the judging throughout the day and if you want to see Zero show you can watch it online at the end of the day on Monday, February 14 - assuming you aren't out enjoying dinner and a movie with your sweetheart! I'm not making any predictions about how Zero will do because it's just like any other dog show and anything can happen. Regardless of how he does it's going to be an exhausting and exciting weekend and I can't wait to see Zero and Juliet show at The Garden!

And to think, I cuddled the heck out of that dog from the day he was born...since I didn't know if Mr. Blue or Mr. Black would be 'mine' I wanted to make sure any possibilities got as much love as they could. Great job Tamzin and Erin. And ZERO!
