Worse still was that my little sister Aoife the affenpinscher has been sweeping the board at the shows she's gone too even though she's only a baby. In her first show at the Scottish Kennel Club in Edinburgh she got Best Puppy in breed:
Then she came second in the puppy class at Darlington show and she qualified for Crufts at the Birmingham Championship show - all when she's only just over 6 months old.
She just has that kind of face that people love and she does strut her stuff in the show ring better than me. There's been talk of me not going to shows any more. My sister Caoimhe thinks she'll make a better show girl than me and says I can just blog about her when she starts winning prizes like Aoife. So maybe I will just become a social networking kind of schnauzer and write about things that we do here at the doghouse. Leigh says I don't need to win rosettes to be special and I should just enjoy life and not worry about that scene any more. So to show there's no hard feelings - I do love them both really - here's a picture of my two little sisters sharing a seat in the conservatory:
