Canine Performance Events - National Event in Lake Elmo, Minnesota

Good morning,

Today's pictures are courtesy of our daughter, Catherine, who recently traveled from Cincinnati to Minnesota for Canine Performance Events with her friend Erica.  Catherine took her two Labrador Retrievers and Erica brought three of her Brittanys. 
The ladies and their five dogs traveled in style in Erica's motor home purchased for just this kind of trip.
The dogs had no problem...
 ...adjusting to their very lush accommodations and sometimes supervising...
 ...while Erica and Catherine did most of the work loading supplies, setting up equipment...
 ...providing a safe outside play area...
 ...and even a comfy spot for a snooze.
 The above image reminds me of an opening for a Disney movie.  ;)
 Catherine worked her magic on the grill...
 ...while Erik stood guard.
 I can almost smell this!
 The events were fun for everyone and our "kids" brought home plenty of ribbons...
 
 ...and even a plaque.
 They also were awarded some treats and toys that they will enjoy.  I'm sure they've gotten a good start on these already.

Thanks, Catherine, for sharing your pictures!  I'm sorry I didn't see you in any of them, but I know you were busy behind the camera. What a fun trip!

Lois

What a great post! I can just imagine a driver meeting this one on the road with the big dog in the window!!! That's the way to travel with dogs. You don't have to worry about hotels not accepting dogs.

I must say everything looks great including the meal. It must be nice to have a motor home and enough money to fill up the tank. Gas around here is around $3.50 a gallon.
