As many of our readers know, Dottie in her former life, was an AKC Champion show dog. Yes, our Dottie! And Dottie's very first Mum found our Mum on Facebook and she emailed that she would come for a visit (how cool is that?).
Dottie's previous owner, Betty, told us that Dottie didn't have a very happy life as a show dog (Mum even pulled out the letter and read it to me) and that Dottie had too many litters. Dottie never said anything otherwise, so we figured it had to be true. Who knew Dottie just isn't much of a conversationalist?
I told Dottie to get up and get ready for the visit but she took a nap
and her tongue snuck out. She gets more like Cooper every day. Seriously.
Anyway, this is Dottie's very first Mum, Dana Wellock. She has been showing dogs since 1978. This is a picture of Dana with Dottie, when the Dot'ster was just a pup!
This is Dottie's certificate showing she was an AKC champion. Yeah, yeah...send in enough box tops and you can get one too. (Mum says that is not true and I am not to say such things.).
Okay, one more shot of Dottie in her show days. Okay enough with that. Let's move on.
So here is Dana! And she brought treats! Houseguests with treats are always welcome in my neighborhood.
