South Carolina trip

January 27, 2012.  We went down to South Carolina for several days of showing including a couple of specialties.  Right before I left I came down with horrible cold but of course, the show must go on.  It was a beautiful day in a gorgeous location but I just felt miserable.  With all the cold medication I was just glad to remain upright as I ran around the ring.  The weekend wasn't a total bust.  Sawyer got Judge's Select and earned his first Rally Excellent leg after over a year away from Rally.  He even took 1st place with a score of 99 out of 100 so that was really great!  Prada did well also with a Judge's Select at the specialty and Best of Opposite. 

With the way that I was feeling I wasn't up to my normal photography.  Luckily Marc St. Jean took some pictures for me at the specialty.  I almost forgot that I had these photos on my camera.  What a beautiful location this was at Elena Lamberson's home!

I'm so sick, I'm just hoping to make it through the day.

Made it around the ring, phew!

I think Sawyer knew something was wrong but continued on.

My man!

Miss Prada with Nadine.

Just under 2 year and Prada is a pro.


The exam for Sawyer.

It was a beautiful day but coming from NJ in January, Sawyer was feeling the heat.

I was not prepared for the heat.  The forecast originally called for it to be rainy and cooler.  With my cold I wasn't thinking straight and didn't even pack ice and a cool coat for Sawyer.  I had to improvise for the second show.

Specialty #2 later in the day.  I think the meds are kicking in a bit at this point.

Sawyer showed much better in the afternoon.  He must have felt my health improving.
