On this page I will tell you
about some of my Mom's most memorable moments.
Of course, her "most" memorable moment ever was the day she got
One of Mom's favorite memories is her first American Maltese Association
National Specialty held in San Diego, California. Mom was soooo excited.
She had me entered in the six to nine month old puppy
class and she "knew" I was going to be a
winner. I showed her!!!!!!
I went around the ring on two legs!!! hehehe
Another important memory of Mom's, around that time period, happened with
"Mojo". Mom had entered him in his first show "just to get
him some ring time". He was barely six months old.
Well.................he was nothing like me!! He behaved in the
ring!!! He received "Reserve Winners Dog" to a 5 point major
that day. Dad says it took several days for Mom to come down
from the clouds after that one.
Then there was the time I
received my very first two points and a "Best of Breed" to boot. Mom said I
was a "real toot" back then. I had walking on two legs perfected by
that time and was quite proud of myself.
When Mom had our picture taken
with the judge, Edd Biven, he wanted the picture of me with "all" my
feet on the table............. geeeezzzzzzz.
Another really exciting weekend
for my Mom was the weekend "Mojo" became a champion. That
weekend he received back to back 5 point majors and then went on to "Best of Opposite Sex",
(over specials), behind the famous Ch. Ta-Jon's Tickle Me Silly.
along came Caesar. Mom has several fond memories of her
times showing him. There was the time that Mom had Dad
show him in Wichita, Kansas. He went "Best of Winners" for a 3 point
major. Funny part of it was that the judge had to show
Dad how to stack him....Dad
doesn't take us in the ring very often...... hehe
surprised Mom when in Kansas City he took "Winners Dog" and "Best of
Opposite Sex" for a 5 point major. Mom says he was a lot of fun to
show because of his "small" size.
He sure doesn't have a "small" attitude!!!!
Then, of course, there was the
day that I became a champion by receiving a 5 point major, also in Kansas
City. Mom said I was just "perfect"...I thought I was too!!!!!!
very exciting time for Mom was when "Cruiser" received a
"Group 3" at the prestigious Denver Dog Show. Mom says he was
a real "handful" in the ring and had way too much "attitude".
Personally, between you and me, I think
he's a big showoff!!!!
One of mom's most recent memories
was the "windy" day that DeeDee (Ch. Foxstone's Daydream Believer) "decided"
it was time to become a champion. Contrary to her normal behavior, DeeDee
decided to do everything right (including walking...gggg). She not only
received a 5 point major but also went BOB
(Best of Breed) over a special. Of course, when DeeDee was done showing
she reverted back to the spoiled, stubborn, demanding DeeDee
that we all know and love........
