A Feather through my screen door & Bird of a Feather

Hi everyone, hope ya'll had a really good weekend. I went to a dog show - yay - more about that in a bit.

First of all, yes, a Feather DID go through my screen door!

And ripped out the Screen!

Yep, you read that right.

And the Feather also broke a part of the frame.

But I was able to fix it.


Now that you think I've gone over the edge, the cliff, the wall, the fence...whatever it is that one goes over.

Well I have.

But that's not what happened.

Here is the Feather:


Here is a video on how to fix your screen door if she ever decides to enter your rig upon the same manner too:

Now for Bird of a Feather -- that's her daughter!! Who did the same thing last fall...what's with these girls!?  Actually, it's ReignBeau's Bird of a Feather, SC

This is a picture of Birdie from last year. She has longer ears now & looks more like an adult now. But my current pics of her aren't very good.

What we did this weekend:

Ellie ate up the dogs & myself & we went to a dog show! Yipee, a trip out! Finally! Our first trip out camping since the damages in November. 4.5 months later. Sure felt good to be out. And although Ellie ate us, she let us escape.  Sometimes. But then she'd eat us back up again. In fact, we're back in her right now! I digress.

This is also my first trip out as an exhibitor (hey, not that kind of exhibitor!) since my surgery four months ago! It felt so good to be back out in the ring again with a dog! I only showed Birdie in the Bred By Exhibitor class. First day, she won 3rd place out of 3 in her class. Oh well, that day didn't go so well. She did not show very well & actually deserved that placement.

Next day was way better! She won BEST OF BREED!! Yay! So that gave her another necessary major towards her championship, so she has what she needs major wise now. I think I'll hold off on showing her now till I get up east & show her some there at their great outdoor shows.
She beat 4 Champions for that win, including the Best Of Breed Westminster Saluki winner in this years Westminster event. I'm very proud of her! Ellie ate her back up.

I wish I had some ring pictures to share of us in the ring or any dogs in the ring. I did not take my camera inside, so I don't have any pics to share. But I do have pics to share of RV's & such out in the parking lot.

Where we parked, it was in the 2nd parking lot in the back 40's. I always park back there. It's much more private & quiet. I don't like parking really close to the other rigs in the first parking lot. It's crowded  & fumy. Too many generators running in a close vacinity. I like it when I can park where I still get the camping experience for myself & my dogs. So I park near the grass so we can take a lot of walks in the grass & exercise.

Here are some of the other rigs in the parking lot. Most of our shows here are total boondocking, so generators are a must. Especially in Texas. It was warm enough to run the gennys & a/c's here.

You will see rigs of every type at a dog show. The travel trailer belongs to a friend that is a professional handler. She lives in her TT fulltime & travels everywhere each weekend for shows.

I think the dog logo in this van is an Irish Setter. Not positive, but it looks enough like one to be one.

I used my zoom on my camera to catch these cute little Lhasa Apsos at play.

So there's your outdoor tour of RVing at a dog show!
Hope everyone enjoyed it.

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~


  1. Good job with Birdie! Glad you were able to get out with the RV.

  2. Glad to hear you got out and about for a change. I know you have missed your traveling.

  3. Lucy, you've got some splining to do!

  4. What fun! Glad you finally made it out... and Feather is Beauuuutiful... rascal dog.. HAaaa... I mean it's not funny but ..... animals... sigh

  5. Love the photo of the Lhasas! Different perspective, and I see one of the Lhasas is practicing "yoga" with Down Dog! Maggie (part Lhasa) also likes her "yoga." So glad you had a good outing!

  6. Interesting. I wish you had pictures of the two of you in the ring also.

  7. Thanks all, it sure was sweet to get out for a weekend. We got rain last night & this morning...grrrr, the overhead window is still leaking! So I'll be taking it back over there again. But at least we got a nice weekend in with good weather!

  8. Birdie is such a beautiful girl! Congrats on her win!
