The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Can you get Febreze by the barrel?

It's called the Cabin Fever Cluster, and it's a four-day weekend of dog shows in Muncie, Indiana.

Except this year. The Horizon Convention Center decided that they couldn't risk hosting the shows because of their new carpeted floor, and the clubs involved weren't about to put down plastic sheeting and watch a thousand dogs slip and slide all over the place.

I wonder if Greg Hlatky was planning to bring any Borzoi to Muncie.

Oh, yes. Lacey needs her tune-up before the Garden. It would have been quite convenient.

Wentzville, Missouri this weekend, then Indianapolis the Saturday before Westminster.

The Bataan Death March — er, the Garden — is Lacey's last appearance in the ring, no?

They should count thier blessings. We spent a few days in Muncie a few years ago, and it was the longest month of my life.

It will not be Lacey's last appearance in the show ring. We'll have her out, but on a much more selective basis. We'd like her to be the all-time top-winning Borzoi bitch, for which she needs some 2000 all-breed points.

Lacey will be retired for good in the Fall, when we breed her.
